    Sometime ago I thought someone mentioned that the binding posts on the Marantz SR-7000 can take banana plugs? If this i correct how do I go about removing the plastic (red & black) in the binding post's cavity?

    I'm having a hard time keeping the 12AWG screwed in tight to the binding posts especially since i biwired the speakers.

    TIA,

    Red & black? I only recall little black plugs at the very end of each speaker post. Usually a very small screwdriver, like those used for repairing reading/sun glasses, or a small pin is needed to lift the black plug out.

    Thanx Brian & yes, Michael you are correct in that it is black, my mistake (the screws were color coded).
    I suppose these Dayton banana plugs from PartsExpress http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd..._ID=2462&DID=7 are good (looking for stackable(?) & no need for soldering)?
    TIA,

    Nice link!!!!!!

    Hey!!! Which type is the best?

    I noticed that the all metal ones could touch each other. Also, can you use the dual plugs on rcvrs or is that for special apps. Denon 3802!

    I still wonder which is better (or for my modest equipment it the AR over Dayton doesn't make any difference)?
    AR
    or
    Dayton
