    I have some Magnat ( a German brand no longer available in the US) speakers that are nice except that they have cheap binding posts (not gold plated), and they are corroding. I would like to replace them, but it appears Radio Shack doesn’t carry gold posts. Does anyone have suggestions for a good online source for these parts? I’m looking for something I don’t have to solder. Also, what’s a good method for cleaning corrosion? Thanks for any tips.

    I recently bought some from Madisound for $1.25/ea. Madisound doesn't overcharge on shipping like Parts Express does.

    I use Madisound for binding posts and terminal cups. It's very easy to pick up the phone and place an order - no longer than filling out on-line order forms. I buy quite a bit from P.E., but really hate the overcharging for shipping - maybe some day they'll wake up and be a bit kinder to customers. Madisound's binding post prices are lower and they have a good variety.

    Hank and Frank, thanks, I ended up taking your advice. I'm cheap as dirt, and like to save $ wherever I can.
