But 510 rupees for one bloody spade
That will work out to be 4040.00 only for the spades.....
Does anyone know who sells these in bangalore ? I am looking for the kimber pm33 kit or something like that.
I used banana plugs from Designer Audio in Mumbai but they were fairly expensive too. Maybe half this cost but still I am not happy with their fit. They stay a bit loose instead of fitting snugly and making full-on contact. Am on the lookout for good cheap spades myself, along with cable. I checked blue jeans and anti-cable but both work out rather expensive, esp with shipping.
@dinyaar: which spades should one look at while buying abroad?
There are tons of good cables available now. Demo some supra s. Good sounding/well made/reasonable cables. I guess Boomerang will offer u chord/straight wire but IMO a supra is as good and much cheaper.Transparent is super but expensive even in the US and the kimbers that are good are overpriced here.
Do you have any details on these plugs - photos, etc. Do they have a heatshrink cover or other option to bind better with the cable. Thanks
I can surely take photos but I dont have any other details except that they are about 0.5 grams each is a sleeve-shaped copper alloy that is rolled and hardened. It is also gold plated. There is no heatshrink supplied with it, but one can use any locally available one. You can crimp or solder or both
In general, bananas offer superior termination over spades as the fit is much more snug as opposed to a spade. This is more the case if your speakers/amp have a binding post that can be adjusted such that it tightens the banana inlet.
