Banana plugs vs. bare wire


Recommended Posts


you've got it. It's a convenience thing. Technically, bare wire connections are "better" and it makes sense with more contact potential. However, if the connection is already "adequate" I can't imagine that the "better" connection could be discerned in sound.

I've got bananna plugs sitting in a variety of drawers in my

house. Used them with the more modern stuff and took them off to

wire up the old Heritage stuff I've purchased. Sonically if there

is a difference I've never heard it. Since I swap gear a lot,

I've found the banannas to be a pain. They also have a tendency

to work loose over time.

I'm happier without them and sorry I spent the money.
