why would you give such a suggestion? have you experienced losses on these particular plugs or do you have an overall opposition to plugs in general?
I'm sure a lot of people on slickdeals, spend money on high end stuff, but still want to get the best buck out of their money. Slickdeals!=cheap.
One can make the argument that you want as little between you amp and speaker as possible. If you're buying these for an improvement in sound quality you're looking in the wrong place. I think it's safe to argue that if they somehow degrade the sound quality that 98% of users would not notice without very high level (read: expensive) equipment and well trained ears.

I have these and they work fine. They're very convenient for whenever you need to unplug things and move stuff around.

I do not use the particular ones posted on this deal. But I use similar ones I purchased from ebay. Makes life a lot easier when trying to fiddle behind the receiver and cleaning up under the speakers. No need to unscrew the speakers binding posts either on the speakers or behind the receiver.
Make sure you have enough room behind the speakers, to fit these if the speakers are wall mounted. I use spade connectors on my wall mounted speakers and banana connectors behind the receiver and floor standing speakers.
It pays for itself when you disconnect everything from behind the receiver to clean dust under it.

PS: make sure your receiver has receptacles for these before purchasing. Most new cheaper receivers dont have 5 way binding posts except for the front two channels.

good call on the "room behind the speakers" advice. Most people don't thin about that one. I can't use them on one of my external amps because there isn't enough clearance behind the amp.

I use these on a $10k HT speaker system and they work just fine. Highly recommended. You can pay much more for connectors and you will not be able to tell the diff. Use them on both my Denon AVR and my towers.

Shouldn't the external portion be made out of plastic or something non-conductive?
