Everyone thanks. To Jeff Delman, thank you for your comments, you are correct, that is what one has to risk when buying used. But hey, I would never have bought the cable new at $5,000. They are Transparent Reference/XL. Now you know how expensive they are. The lugs are too thick to do any thing with. Quite frankly theyre also too nice to be played with. Knowing me, I would probably would want to upgrade it to the full XL version in the future, just to match the level of my interconnects. So I dont want to do anything that makes it difficult to sell them when I am ready to spend more money. What I ended-up doing was inserting one leg of the spade into the hole of the binding post and tightened over it with the nut. I know that this not the optimum contact, but it is better than not using the cables at all. I will continue to do so until I find some kind of spade lug-spade lug adaptor. I dont want to use the banana because the way the connection is made on the Genesis 350 is the banana would have to be inserted vertically from the top over the woofers (if you can imagine what I mean), which means that over time, due to the heavy weight of the cable, I am sure that will have an effect on the structure of it.
Once again thank you for your help.
