They're pleased that Sony have used what looks like proprietary connections for speakers?! (with the comment of "sign of the Sony's superiority over cheaper all-in-one systems")

What are trustedreviews smoking?

I my experience you can't beat the clamping type of connector, for ease and reliability.

The trouble with any kind of enclosed connector, e.g. Jacks, is that you can't see any loose connections, and fixing loose/broken connections means having a new connector and soldering iron, to hand.

A hard to find proprietary connector just creates even more problems.

The ones I don't like are the spring loaded clip style ones, ie. you pull the clip back and then the spring pressures it onto the wire, and the flip down ones, where you lock it in place.

The ones I like on my Denon unit and Magnat speakers are the type where you screw the plastic sheath off to expose a hole in the middle of the shaft, then thread the wire through, then screw the sheath down over the hole to clamp it in place.

Those things never break or get loose no matter how much they get used.
