The Marantz SR7010 AV receiver

I have been looking at this unit as a major update to my system. In fact the heart of a new system. Every thing I have seen from retailers like Crutchfield, B&H an Best buy; for example, say it is top of line. when looking at the picture of the back panel, ONline, I see the binding post; an it looks like I can use Banana plugs placed straight in the center of the black or red twist cap. Is that right? I know that Yamaha uses post like that, an I wish all modern amps were that way.

Looking at the PDF owners manual from Marantz for the SR7010 only gives the instruction for bare wire (3/8 in max) with no mention that you can use banana plugs. However they do warn that bare wire leads can short. Especially if the copper is exposed or too long. I wold prefer neat terminated speaker cables into the unit. such as RCA or banana plugs to bare wire.

If during the remodel of the LR we run standard 5.1 or 5.2 and 4 added height channels; the SW's would be F-connector-RCA keystones and all other speakers, binding post pairs that also take banana plugs. using 12 AWG CL-2 with red and black conductors (KISS method). match red to red and black to black through out.

I would love to be able to use short 4 to 5 ft terminated cables from speakers to the wall outlets and from the AV main outlets to the receiver. I know I can from the speakers to their outlets (banana plugs on both ends) or (for SW RCA both ends). I also know from the main AV plates I can do the same from the main plates. However, do i bare wire the post or can i use banana plugs. at the recever?

You can use banana plugs at the receiver.

The manual for may Denon AVR-X4000 says nothing about banana plugs, but that hasn't stopped me from using them.

While waiting for my SR7009 I decided to prepare my speaker wires with banana plugs for a neat look. After spending a lot of time researching I couldn't find anything I liked for a quality connection. I ended up skipping the banana plugs because a good reliable connection was more important to me than a neat one.
