Health warning: this post relates to a non-Naim situation
I have a vintage Pioneer receiver (1960s) that I may put back into service. But it’s only ever known bare-wire speaker cable because of the old connectors. Pictured below:
What do I use to connect speakers, given I’d like to upgrade the cabling? Is it lugs like these below?
I guess they would need to go sideways…If anyone has experience with this sort of stuff, some advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Potentially, yes - IF you can find some which will fit - which may prove tricky.
Is it worth it, on such an old unit…? I would be tempted to try something like QED 79 Strand, into the screw terminals.
oh yes, totally worth it…
I just looked, and all these lugs seem to have an 8 / 9mm gap - so could conceivably fit. I guess this is what you’d use on, let’s say, an old McIntosh 275 amp from the 60s/70s as well?
Looks like the answer is to take a punt and spend the 17 Euros on Amazon and see what happens
You could terminate with these instead; crimp terminals used in cars etc.
Either the open ended ones or the round ones would be ideal.
