Amplifier Terminal Strips

zingozingo AudiophilePosts: 11,837
I like my new little Hafler P1000 MOSFET amp, but it has terminal strips for the speaker connections whiech is not ideal. Has anyone done a 5-way binding post swap on an amp?

    Yes. Your pics are too fuzzy to get a good look, but it should be possible to do on any amp as long as there is a bit of real estate on the back panel.

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    could you unscrew the screws, and then screw in little add-ons for binding posts? that's the kind of thing I'm sure someone makes somewhere.

    Too close to screw 4 binding post if they made such a critter.

    I've seen people fashion their own for vintage McIntosh gear.

    Couldn't someone make some sort of something to space it out though?
    I'll draw my idea later when I have some spare time...

    These should work to make them banana plug compatible.

    These look like they would work, at least as a temporary solution.
    Now I'm tempted to grab some for my Lafayette.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. That may be fine for a quick test, but I wouldn't put it in my rack like that. Particularly if I had a cat that liked to play hide and seek. :p

    It looks like PE doesn't carry them anymore, so I'll look for another source, or maybe smaller spade that fit those terminals.

    Thanks! I never shop on Amazon, but that's probably a huge blind spot I should clearly remove. :)

    I'd be worried about a short set up like that, can you flip every other one over, so it is underneath?
    Very cool, either way. :)

    I was going to put an insulator between them, but flipping them every other is a great idea!
