Last time I investigated audio connections I was somewhat distracted by a
long discussion of Speakon vs Jack Plug.
Looking back, I realise that I was thinking of banana plugs - the ones
that fit into the back of speaker binding posts.
If we accept that the banana plug option on binding posts is acceptable
for audio connections then presumably banana plug patch cables should work
So this suggests that if I run the audio cables under the floor then I
could terminate them in banana plug sockets.
These would be set directly in the floor to give minimal disruption (I
Apart from mounting them in a custom made metal plate screwed to the
floor, are there any other mounting methods which spring to mind?
Wall mounting is probably not an option because we have just had the walls
Skirting board mounting might be an option but I'm not sure there is
enough depth, and this also sounds a bit fiddly.
I am assuming at the moment I will run wires directly from the floor
sockets to the binding posts on the AV amplifier, although a patch panel
at the back of the audio stack is another option.
At some point I might split out the two main speakers and amplify them
from a separate audio amp so I can have a stereo set-up independent of the
AV amp, in which case patch cables sounds quite attractive.
Anyway, product suggestions welcome :-)
