Just an FYI since many people seem to be asking about cost-effective ways to add banana plugs to their speaker wires. I had used Radio Shack gold screw on banana plugs, but they were $6/pair. I found that NXG seemed to be the price leader in banana plugs and ordered some from WatchCom.net. I think I paid a little over $3/pair delivered and the quality is on par with the Radio Shack gold plugs I have. If you do a search, at least one other person has verified the quality of NXG plugs. In any case, I found WatchCom's service to be extremely responsive. Just wanted to point out that there are other (more) cost-effective solutions to Radio Shack's banana plugs.
