Eichmann Cable Pod Binding posts are one of the most significant advances in binding post technology that I can remember. Eichmann Technologies has eliminated most of the mass of conventional binding posts, threw away the steel nuts and hardware in the signal path, and has created arguably the most sonically transparent binding post ever made, IMHO. Will fit panel thickness range of 1mm to 11 mm. Each box contains 2 cable pods (4 posts). Each pod may be easily split for non-standard binding post widths.

NEW ITEM! WBT NextGen, and Topline Binding Posts



Enter Quantity --->>

    View your shopping cart

WBT-0703 and WBT-0708 NextGen binding posts are brand-spanking new, and arguably the best quality-to-price ratio of any binding post on the market. Its low mass design, pure gold-plated copper OR pure silver conductor material, and clever vibration-dampening locking nut means there's no reason to settle for those cheesy, high-mass, nickel-plated blocks of caca used by many speaker and amp manufacturers to keep costs down. Here's an afforable alternative!

The core of the new WBT-0703 and WBT-0708 binding posts is similar in construction to WBT's top-of-the-line WBT-0710 NextGen series, described in the next section below. The outer materials have been economized to reduce the "bling" factor a bit- but without degrading the sonic performace. The primary differece between the WBT-0703 and WBT-0708 is the size of the locking knob: the WBT-0703 is larger than the WBT-0708. Supply is limited, so scoop them up while you can... Sold as EACH piece.

WBT-0710 NextGen Signature Series are the new "king of the hill" of binding posts. WBT Nextgen stands for a new generation of connectors in which the strict separation of signal transmission and mechanical stability has permitted the use of the most ideal materials. Pure copper and/or fine silver are the best known electrical conductors for signal transmission. However, due to their mechanical limitations their use has only now been made possible through their ingenious combination with high performance plastics. The core of the new WBT-0710 binding post is not only made from pure copper or fine silver but it is also designed from one piece so that all unnecessary transition resistance is omitted. The signal conductor is embedded in a matrix of glass fibre and mineral strengthened plastic and strain relief is achieved by means of a non-magnetic stainless steel strut. The clever angular alignment of the signal conductor allows the secure fitting of spades, banana plugs and crimped cable ends. A damping ring made from elastomer prevents vibration at the contact level. On this basis, the construction is electrically insulated from the start. Design elements out of brass give the WBT-0710 binding post the expected appearance and feel of WBT products, without impairing the electrical safety. In this way, the WBT-0710 nextgen conforms to all current norms and safety regulations. With a 30 amp continuous and a 500 amp power impulse current capability all concerns are satisfied. The WBT-0710 Nextgen provides the theoretically maximum possible conductivity with the mechanical quality to be expected from WBT. Supply is limited, so scoop them up while you can... Sold as each piece.

WBT-0730.11 Topline Signature Series binding post kit includes 2 double-pole terminals (4 posts) that will handle 200A continuous current. The patented clamping mechanism ensures a high compression connection of spade connectors and crimped wire with ends up to 10awg. Accepts 4mm banana. Color code: red & white. Kit also includes 2 spacer blocks and 1 torx key. termination is solderless!

NEW ITEM! WBT-0661 / WBT-0681 NEXTGEN Spade connectors



Enter Quantity --->>

    View your shopping cart

The new WBT-0661 (1/4") and WBT-0681 (5/16") Nextgen Spades have arrived! These new NextGen Topline spades are made from pure copper, and have reduced metal mass even further.

The key to the superb quality of the WBT-0661 and WBT-0681 spades is a patented Sandwich design of its contact fork: Elastomer oscillation dampers eliminate airborne noise and mechanical vibrations as well as magnetostrictions, ensuring almost total suppression of contact microphonics, and providing improved fracture resistance of the connection. The WBT-0661 and WBT-0681 sandwiches the contact forks with an elastomer insert in a steel cap resulting in uniform contact pressure, while minimizing transition resistance. Three punched contact points on the bottom of the fork ensure precise contact, further improving the quality of signal transmission. The surface of the copper conductor is protected against oxidation by direct nickel-free 24 carat gold plating.

Easy fit for wire sizes up to 10mm2 (7AWG). Available in two sizes to fit almost any binding post: WBT-0661 = 1/4", WBT-0681 = 5/16". Color code: red or white. Sold and priced by EACH piece. Yeah, they're expensive, but they are VERY GOOD. For best results use the WBT crimper and crimp sleeves (see below).

Crimper purchase is refundable when purchased with set of 4 or more connectors.

* Late fee will be assessed at $3 per day 3 weeks after ORDER DATE.

NEW ITEM! Furutech CF-202 R Banana connectors

Furutech's new CF-202 R Banana connectors are Furutech's all-out assualt on the rest of the banana connector marketplace. While I have not been overly impressed with many of the banana offerings throughout the years, the newest generation of pure copper connectors by WBT and Furutech (or Silver by ETI) mean you don't need to compromise with inferior sounding brass/bronze alloys any more. The Furutech CF-202R Banana uses a pure copper (Alpha), rhodium plated center conductor for signal transmission, and utilizes a specially designed set screw for terminating your wire (up to about 10 AWG), which means this connector is reusable! A non-magnetic stainless steel body and housing was chosen for the CF-202 Banana, and carbon fiber is also used to dampen resonances. A strain relief resonance dampening ring is icing on the cake and puts this banana at the top of the heap with the WBT NextGen, IMHO. Will also work very well with smaller diameter wires, and will accomodate an O.D. cable (with jacket) of 5.5mm. Dimensions- 15.2mm dia X 64.2mm length. Sold as a set of 4 pieces, but may be ordered in pairs by simply entering a qty of ".5" when adding to your shopping cart.
