High End 2011

Expect these terminals, WBT’s all-new Nextgen speaker binding posts, to be seen on the best-dressed mid-priced audiophile amps over the next few years. The larger WBT-0703 and the smaller WBT-0708 are "dignified offshoots" of the WBT-0705 and WBT-0710. But, by dropping the gold plating on the decorative covering rings and adjusting caps, WBT has been able to reduce costs "by as much as 50%." Nextgen hybrid construction of "functional materials" is said to endow the connectors with no eddy-current distortion and freedom from mass storage effects.
