8 AWG silver ring/spade connector source needed

Hi folks,

I'm looking for 8 gauge silver-plated ring or spade connectors for my DM945/MiniTorii setup, any suggestions ? Also, what size are the binding posts ?

Thanks in advance,

Mike in CT

I'd be interested too if anyone knows of a source.  I did find a source for banana plugs that will take 8 awg if you are interested.  Reasonable price too.

I've had my eye on, but never bought from http://homegrownaudio.com.  their spades take up to 4mm cables.  

my fave lookup and calculator tool says 8 gauge is 3.264 mm.

never seen anything this powerful before. (no, I don't work for them. I just think it's cool and very useful)

B58Fury,

I recall Steve D telling me that the binding posts require a 5/16" spade lug (measured inside to inside of the lug). The binding posts also have flat ridges on each side which permit a smaller spade.
