    And it was a pain to strip the ends and fit them into my hi-fi's speaker slots.

    I heard of these things called (over here) 'banana plugs', they go at the end of the cables to make unplugging etc easier.

    Do you know anything about these? Tips?

    The top ones look like they would work great :cool:

    Make sure to get 2 packages though, one for each speaker cable.

    Oh yeah, 2 packs, for some reason i was thinking 2 pairs will do :confused:

    Well, before i buy i will take pics of both the back of my hifi and speakers to get your approval that they should fit. You know..just in case.

    whats the cheapest best quality cable out there? I dont wanna use the crappy cable the onkyo is going to give me when I buy my reciever and speakers. Not going to waste money on monster cable either, just want some good quality shit and the banana plugs posted here..

    I bought some QED Silver edition speaker cable, £5 ($8) a metre, seems to be the cheapest best quality cable i found.

    I use this cable: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/show...7&St3=-69072263&DS_ID=3&Product_ID=2792&DID=7

    With these banana plugs: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&PartNumber=091-1260&DID=7

    I'm sure many audiophile's wouldnt consider it good enough, but it passes a signal with no audible loss in almost any circumstance.
