    1095 binding posts -Spades or banana

    Does anyone know if I can connect a spade type speaker wire to the 1095 amp? If so, what is the diameter size?

    Thanks,

    Brad

    This pulled directly from the instruction manual.

    The RMB-1095 has five sets of color coded binding posts. These SPEAKER CONNECTORS accept bare wire, connector lugs, or dual banana type connectors (except in the European Community countries where their use is not permitted). Route the wire from the RMB-1095 to the speakers. Give yourself enough slack so you can move the components enough to allow access to the SPEAKER CONNECTORS. If you are using dual banana plugs, connect them to the wires and then plug into the backs of the SPEAKER CONNECTORS. The collars of the SPEAKER CONNECTORS should be screwed in all the way (clockwise). If you are using terminal lugs, connect them to the wires. If you are attaching bare wires directly to the SPEAKER CONNECTORS, separate the wire conductors and strip back the insulation from the end of each conductor. Be careful not to cut into the wire strands. Unscrew (turn counterclockwise) the SPEAKER CONNECTORS collars. Place the connector lug around the shaft, or insert the bundled wire into the hole in the shaft. Turn the collars clockwise to clamp the connector lug or wire firmly in place.
    They don't say you can't use spades but they do not appear to endorse the use of spades either. I'd probably stick with banana's.

      Ok, with the legal mumbo jumbo out of the way. Has ANYONE actually used spades on the 1095???

      Brad and I would really like to know. Brad's getting ready to purchase cables from me, and we'd like to do it right the first time.

      How about a picture of the butt of it, anyone got one? I tried on their web site but get a "file error" on all back panel pics.

      Thanks,

        Best I can do right now.. There's more rack hanging in front of it now.. Spades should work, that's a fairly common binding post..

          Should work.... :? Perhaps you should email Rotel... I'd want to make sure they'll work before I purchase a bunch of cables if I were you britchie.
