    I have spades on my receiver end that need to be bananas. I'm thinking about purchasing a used set of cardas double banana plugs, or monster xterminators. Can anybody offer some advice on which would be better, or should I have my audioquest type 4's reterminated?

    I just worry the person who re-terminates them will screw it up.

    the cost of the Cardas are $50Cdn for 2 pair
    the Monster's are $87Cdn for 2 pair.

    Your insight is appreciated,
    Shaughn

    Well, why not just pick up banana plugs locally where you can insert the wire and use a set screw to fix it in place?

    Thanks folks, went with the cardas, talked him down to $40 Cdn for the two pair. Sound is good, just didn't want to mess with re-termination. Never done it before and didn't want to screw it up.

    I appreciate the feedback, that's why I love forums like this! Happy holidays.
