Had this receiver for a while liao and having been clipping the speaker cables to the speaker posts behind.

Now trying to by proper banana plugs to terminate cables but find that the binding post's size is smaller than the std banana plugs.

Is there this kind of smaller-than-banana-plug connector?

Hi , you are like me , got my yammy amp and found that the hole too small went back to the shop and look for smaller banana plug and realise that need to get any flat head (test pen/screw driver) to open it.

You should be able to see something like this after you take out the plastic cover

Hiya KS,

Actually I have posted a solution for  this sometime back which by the way I learned from here.

For your benefit, here it is again...
first get a small screw, one of those for wood with a sharp point , then screw this in about 1/2 to one turn, then use a plier to pull the screw head out, if you do it right,  the plastic piece will come out together with the screw. Then repeat with the others...

When u said screw in 1/2-1 turn, u mean screwing into the clip itself or to the side of the plastic?

U have a pic to show me the back of the receive after this treatment?

Now im not sure if u guys mean removing just the round cap, or removing the whole unit of spring clip.

Even if i were able to take up the smaller round plastic, i dun think it will dun anywhere like those round binding posts

To start of with, the 430's clip is squarish.

ks, could it be that the RX-V430 is using spring clips for speaker terminals. in this case you cannot use banana plugs

(image here)

instead you can use bare wires, or pins like these

Dang.. we all think that it's a simple case of removing the plastic cap while in fact the terminal cannot accept banana plug at all..... ::)
