Recently I bought a new pioneer 1014 to put into my deditcated theater replacing my H/K 325 which I bought last year at a very cheap price. It was cheap because it was a floor model and it did not have any binding post for the left front channel. It wasn't a problem for me not having the binding post because I was using it as a preamp. Now however, since I am moving it to the living room theater I looked closer to check out the problem. What I've learned is that the amp for this channel works, but there isn't a way to connect the speaker wires to the amp. In trying to figure out how the binding post are connected to the reciever, I found out that in each of the ring collars (Positive and Negative)there is a metal oring(lack of a better word.) where the binding post screws into. Infact in I've learned that I can screw out all the binding post of the receiver if I wanted to. Now to the problem. I was able to buy some binding posts from radio shack and screw it in the negative collar but when trying to do the same for the positive side, I find that the metal oring is not there. So I am wondering if you guys ever heared of a problem similar to this and if/ how I cam find any replacements of the orings I will try to include a picture if I could.
