Connections Conundrum

I spoke in my last post about needing to find connectors to link the wires between the amp PCB and the outputs.  I just spent the whole day looking at the web sites of RS Components, Farnell, Maplin and eBay.  Although there are literally tens of thousands of different types, I am unable to find anything that fits all my needs: silver plated contacts, not expensive, not large, 5A+ rating.  Most connectors are either gold plate or zinc/tin plated.  They are also expensive, the cheapest costing around £16 for a full set.  I have even considered cutting up a multipole connector but it is still not right.

I hadn’t expected this being a problem, I’ll have to go and have a good ‘thinking sideways’ session to see where to go from here.
