Mini-Review: Monoprice High Quality Speaker Banana Plugs – Solder Type
Monoprice High Quality Speaker Banana Plugs – Solder Type
Haven't you always thought banana plugs were the coolest thing ever? I know I have….they just weren't $10/pair cool. That's where Monoprice comes in. They have some very solid banana plugs for less than $2/pair, with prices getting even cheaper if you order multiple pairs at once. Despite being solder type plugs they work just fine as rear entry screw on.
So let's take a quick look at these banana plugs. They may just be the perfect thing to tidy up that mess behind your reciever and they'll definitely make all the futzing around with wiring you do a lot easier. One of my least favorite things is being contorted into some odd sort of fetal postition wrapped around my AV rack and trying to screw down speaker wire. These little guys should make that a thing of the past.
Here's the official specs:
- 24k Gold plated
- Accepts 12-18 AWG(gauge) wire
- Rear cable entry
- Color coded
For the price, it's tough to beat this deal on banana plugs. Taking a look at comparable banana plugs it's hard to tell any difference. I'd suggest giving them a whirl yourself if you don't have any for your system. Outfitting a 5 speaker system (10 pairs of plugs) with banana plugs on both ends of each speaker wire will only run you $15.60 + shipping. That's less then 2 pairs of plugs most anywhere else. The price to performance ratio of these plugs just can't be beat. While being so bold as to put High Quality in the name of the item may be a little odd, they live up to their name and I know I'll be ordering a bunch more.
