    47 Labs had some (actually lots) of push fit phono plugs. They just smiled when I asked. Anyone seen things like them?

    Cheers, but not the ones Les.

    These ones where all plastic with a push fit insert for the signal pin.

    Yes ;)

    Push fit as in no solder needed to make them.

    Very convenient, I am sure.
    But can it beat a good old fashioned soldered connection for performance?!

    Almost certainly. Solder is a poor conductor and unreliable in the long run.

    Nice. The advantage the 47 Labs had were that were made of plastic and so the contact made was with the actual wire of the interconnect.
