I've always preferred to use bare ends for speaker wire, not even tinned. Nothing to go wrong or get loose. While I've never noticed any corrosion on my copper wires, if the bare do show corrosion...

I don't like subs and don't use them for the system under discussion nor the home theater system downstairs (I use Celestion DL-8's for L/R there).

Wondering about upgrading my SuperOnes and wonder what the Threes would bring to the table that I'm not getting now. Using a Marantz PM8004 integrated and their CD6004 as a CDP. Also, use my netbook...
