Trapezium binding posts
08/30/11 at 02:53:33
 
I just received my Trapeziums. Good build and good looks. They feel larger in person, but I have a relatively small desktop (29.5" D x 48" W).

I was not expecting these binding posts, and I did not read about them in the literature. I was almost of out luck for listening tonight. I do not have any bare speaker wire around. My aftermarket locking bananas on my Zen Styx did not fit. Spades are not compatible. Fortunately, I did have another set of Zen Styx with the standard silver bananas. They did fit, but it is tight.

They sound good out of the box. They are better than my Tivoli Model 10, but that is to be expected. Right now, I running them with my NAD 314 int amp. I have an SE84C+, but I will not try it on them until after several hundred hours.

I, too, found that the standard bananas on my existing speaker wire fit in the binding posts tight, but allright.

On another speaker project, I had a similar problem. But the binding posts were made in China. They had a smaller hole that I couldn't fit regular sized bananas in. Is this what you are talking about? I have also seen these on Chinese T amps.

The binding post is a "spring loaded" push in type. You push down on the top and the holes line up so that you can push in the banana plug or bare wire.  I was hoping for a binding post that would accept bare wire, bananas, and spades. I do not know where they are made, and it worked out in the end because I had a spare set of Decware's speaker cable.

I think it has been several hundred hours with my new speakers, and these little wonders will be staying with me for the long haul.

They are performing very well. I am using them now with my SE84C+.  I have also taken this opportunity to simplify my system as well.

I am using a Sony XA5400ES for CDs. I am using the headphone out socket of my TV for over the air digital TV and DVD (hdmi from DVD to TV). I also get my favorite local jazz from the TV as well. The amp, DVD, and CD player are running through a PS Audio P500 power plant.

Again...great speakers. I am very satisfied.
