Audio Note Silver or Eichmann Pods are very good. You will hear an improvement based on the better material (better signal transfer ability). Best you can buy for maximum signal transfer is WBT silver.

If it were mine, I would stay with the barrier strip. I know a lot of people don't care for them, but they are very good. They work very well with spade connectors. Not only that, Shindo isn't exactly budget gear. I can't see them using inferior parts. At the very least, give them a call and see what they recommend.
Thanks for the feedback. I've decided to try the change with Audio Note Silver Meishu terminals. They're very simple and have a relatively short post so I'm not adding a lot more metal.
If I don't like I'll go back to a barrier strip. I've found the downside of these is that the very small spade certainly limits cable use - and my Sablon's need something more substantial. Anyway in for a penny in for a pound as they say!
Will report back.
BTW - my Tech is removing the damaged strip and replacing with the AN's directly connected to the existing wiring so we're not changing any of the circuitry.
