    Default So I couldn't leave well enough alone..........

    I added some Cardas CCRR Rhodium plated binding posts to my BAT VK-200 amp. Yes, I know the original binding posts were made by Cardas and were gold plated but I love the neutral sound of the Rhodium plated ones. Plus, the BAT amp is easily warm enough as it is and a little neutrality will be nice. The CCRR posts a slightly beefier than the originals in the and lightly longer in length. I have not had the chance to listen since the install, but I will give a listen tonight. Can't wait! Some pictures (from my iphone, so they are not great pictures) are below.

    Looking great! Those Cardas CCRR posts are the best! Your amp is a very good one for doing this, because of the placement of those posts. So many amps are a real PITA to change them out.

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah, hence the title Jake. The originals are nice, but I love the Rhodium sound the posts give. Sort of clean, clear and detailed.
