banana connector

A high-quality plug and socket for speaker cable. The banana plug is pushed into the socket, and the spring-like protrusions on the prong make a snug fit (see cutout on illustration). Five-way binding posts are widely used on high-end audio equipment that can accommodate banana plugs as well as pins, spade lugs and bare wire.
