    Where can I get them in the UK or Europe. Internet order preferably. I've just ordered all the other bits for my DIY power amp :eek: Of course nothing but the best will do for speaker binding posts :)

    Thanks Penance. They don't really have a large selection do they? The ones I wanted were these:

    It looks like even the US site doesn't have an ordering facility. I find it bizarre that I'd have to go to the US to get some German made bits :confused:

    Will have another hunt around the net.

    Michael.

    Doh! A little more rooting around the US site reveals the Portuguese distributor:

    I'll give them a call tomorrow :)

    Michael - I'm sure you're probably aware that those are the same posts used on the S300. Be aware that reasonable sized spades don't fit into them, such as those on my Tara RSC.

    Yes, same posts as on the S300, SimAudio i-5, Krell KAV-400xi, and soon to be born Mike Brown special :D - seems like the binding post of choice ;)

    There's an identical version which doesn't have the translucent "safety" shroud but I rather like the covering. I use hollow "Z-plugs" which are both 4mm banana and BFA compatible so I shouldn't have a problem.

    Michael.

    Will do, but they appear to have a distributor in the UK too:

    Audio Solutions
    PO Box 10205
    Bearwood, Smethwick
    West Mids B67 5JU
    United Kingdom
    email: info@audio-solutions.com
    http://www.audio-solutions.com
    Tel.: +44 (0)121 - 4 29 78 13

    Website is out of action though but might be worth a call.

    Michael.

    Add the Gamut D200 to that list too. :MILD:

    These really are great binding posts from a userability point of view, amongst the easiest to use with bare wire and spades (providing that the wire guage or spade isn't too big but they've worked with everything that I've tried). You can easily undo/insert/do-up with just one hand which isn't something I could say about any other binding posts I've used. Like the encapsulating plastic shrouding idea too.

    Bugger :mad: I knew they had them but I just couldn't find them.

    I got some high quality (but non-WBT) RCA sockets and my Neturik XLR chassis mount input sockets and a load of wire all in my order with the ZAP pulse stuff (which arrived today).

    Still - they only have the 0735's in the "joined together" version whereas I really wanted them individually so I could space the terminals a bit further apart.

    No hurry as I haven't even got a case yet. Everything else has turned up though :) Case is going to be harder than I thought because the LC Audio PSU is so bloody big :eek: !

    I've asked the guys at iagaudio.com if they make cases to order otherwise I'll have to look a bit harder.

    Michael.

    Yes it's a bit bad that you only get to see the wbt's, etc .... if you look at the Danish pages.

    How big is the PSU ?
