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.

The Furutech FP-201G and FP-201R spade connectors are Furutech's answer to those who want a top-notch audiophile-quality spade connector. Manufactured from PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting), and uses a 4-step plating process of copper-silver-copper-gold or copper-silver-copper-rhodium. If there's a better spade connector out there for this price, I haven't heard it... Pricing is for a set of 4 connectors. Spade size is 5/16" and they accept up to 8 AWG wire. No soldering necessary- there are two set screws that clamp onto the wire, making these re-usable for DIY'er who wants to experiment with various cabling.

Furutech's new CF-201R spade connectors build upon the huge success of Furutech's FP-201 series, and requires no soldering. A single set screw allows you to terminate your wire directly to the connector (up to about 10 AWG). The Furutech CF-201 uses a pure (Alpha) copper conductor plated with Rhodium, a non-magnetic stainless steel body, and non-magnetic stainless steel housing that also utlizes carbon fiber. A specially designed copper alloy set screw ensures maximum stability and low contact resistance. Max O.D. cable (with jacket) accomodation is 5.5 mm. Dimensions of the CF-201R is 15.2mm dia X 70.0 mm length. Spades will fit 5/16" binding posts, as well as many 1/4" posts. Sold as a set of 4. If you want to purchase just two pieces, simply enter a quantity of ".5".

Furutech has also introduced a new line of low-mass spade connectors for speaker cables: the FT-211 series. The FT-211 speaker spade connectors offer a low-mass, pure copper conductor, as well as your choice of either gold or rhodium plating. The body uses Furutech's piezo ceramic material to help address resonance issues. A non-magnetic set screw allows easy termination, without soldering. Max O.D. cable (with jacket) accomodation is 7.8 mm. Maximum conductor diameter is 4.5 mm. Overall length is 57.5 mm. Spread is optimized for 5/16" binding posts.

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 pure 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.

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 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!
