Aww, you're killing me! I just bought 14 pair of these a few weeks back, tho I guess the extra $12 I spent isn't going to break my bank.
To answer Taxman's
question, I used these on my new receiver and loved them. I was worried about how to screw down all of the speaker wire in such tight quarters (my old AVR used the locking tab connections, so I wasn't even thinking bananas when I hooked it up 15 years ago), so when I stumbled across a posting of Mono's guide to install them in another thread, I jumped all over them. They attach easily and fit nice and snug. I wasn't thinking about the errant short that sivadselim
mentioned, and if I had and had known about the SafeConnects, I might have gone with them instead. They attach the same way and have that built in protection, so if you are short on time to do the Max Mike Method, for the extra coin they may be worth it.
Speaking of the Max Mike Method, Mike
, where do you get the necessary shrink tubing to insulate the Mono plugs for $1?
