    Bi Wire V Jumpers ?

    I’ve found many company using gold plated copper for banana plugs and speaker binding posts to prevent oxidation. If that makes sense.

    Bi Wire V Jumpers ?

    I would also suggest that if you’re using bare wire connection, invest a can of Deoxit. I know it’s a bit expensive but well worth the money and will last for years. Bare copper oxidised very quickly as silver plated copper and looks really nasty. Banana plugs are good option and for convenience imo

    Bi Wire V Jumpers ?

    A decent single wire cable and a cut off from same cable to use as jumpers will do imo.

    Banana plug stuck in amp speaker post

    I was thinking as the op is using banana z plugs, those jagged edges might be dragging the speaker terminal when pulling out.

    Banana plug stuck in amp speaker post

    +1 I’ve used WD40 a few times and it’s safe if use correctly. The oily residue can be cleaned with a bit of isopropyl alcohol

    To treat or not to treat

    Hi Nativebon, Just search gik acoustics on ebay and the username is gikukacoustics. They only sell products (b-stock) or with some minor scuffs or flaws but still bargain compared to new. The 242's I bought were listed for £90 and made an offer of £80 when I contacted Lindsay(seller) and immediately accepted it. Very helpful seller imo. Btw I think the rrp for the 242's is £74 each. Hope this helps
  11. I have for sale a Chord Company powerchord (orange) shielded with upgraded mains plug and iec. The mains plug is MS hd copper and iec is Sonarquest gold plated copper (new). It’s 1.2 metre in length and very good condition. The plugs and pins were Deoxit treated. Perfect for source components like cd player etc. Looking for £95 ono including postage (UK only). Thanks

    I bought the 242’s Belize (bright red) which could match our wall and move the off white behind listening sofa. £80 for a pair delivered is a bargain imo.
