What is this speaker cable connection?



I was given these speaker cable and told these were really expensive. But when look at the connection, it doesn't make any sense to me. I have used banana plugs before. But I have no idea how to connect these with my amplifier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, as erik said, the connectors are standard spades. Because the speaker terminals on the Parasound 23 are quite close to the bottom of the case the length of the barrel of those connectors might not give you enough room to bend the cable away from the amp. It might be necessary to raise the amp, connect the cables from the top of the terminals rather than from the bottom or connect them from the bottom at an angle.
