[quote user="slopmonster"]hi Clare I was wondering what is actually ment by terminating?
Is it when the cable has had banana plugs added by the shop you brought them from or just that it has plugs on the cable? [/quote]
Terminating is, as it suggests, simply an ending for the cable - whether plugs or spades
I put them on myself when I brought my QED silver anniversary 7 years ago, would they still deliver them same detail as when i first brought them.[/quote]
As we regularly suggest in our advice pages, you should spring-clean your cabling every now and then - plugging and unplugging them will ensure everything's connected as well as it can be. Not exactly a fun job, but something to do on those dull winter days....
Depending on what they're made from and how you've treated them (walking over them etc), cables can degrade over time, which can impair performance. Bit like any hi-fi kit, really (not that you tend to walk over CD players etc. Well, I hope not anyway!)
By the way the forum is a great tool on your site with Andrew, Andy and yourself being part of it all instead of us getting on with it. I have become a regular reader of the forums finding that new interest in hi-fi once again.[/quote]
