Do I need to buy banana plugs? If so what, what do you recommend?
NO you don't need banana plugs nor do they offer any discernable or audible advantage but they DO make for quick & easier connection to your avr's speakers terminals or speakers binding posts(if so equipped) over bare wire...I like using them.
