There's no such thing. Just take regular speaker wires and run them in a conduit pipe.

Check out the user manual, page 12 of the document.

It talks about banana plugs but with an exception for UK, Europe and Asian models. Mine is an Asian model bought in Bangalore.

And do the banana pins you use have some sort of springy mechanism running along their length? If yes, pushing a bit harder could help.
This time while setting up the home theatre, I decided to take couple of close-up snaps of the connectors, which are clearly not banana plug terminals.

Does anyone still think these are banana plug terminals?

Samu can you stuff the banana plug in the hole in the center of the terminal?

Curious question: So I got myself a new Home theater (Denon 789 and
Energy C-50 HT Speakers
) and got a 100' spool of 12 AWG speaker cable which is radio shack grade for $10. Would using such thick cable for this setup be a total overkill? My rear speakers would take a 30' run as the wire will have to go along walls and doors.

I am newbie when it comes to this and am still looking at options to get other cable brands.

@ Samurai - those are definitely screw on type terminals. My old Pioneer A400x from around 15 years back had something like that. they will not accept banana plugs in any form or shape, nor will you be able to use any type of spade termination, all you can do is to use bare wire there unfortunately

A bump and a rephrase: I can't get any 14 or 16 AWG thats of better quality. Is there any harm in using a thicker gauge cable?
