I used the following banana plugs:
Please note that only about 30% of the plugs I received were a good fit.
The rest I had to modify.
I had to remove the barrel shaped contact spring and compress it carefully
to open it up to make good contact with the sockets.
I also soldered the barrel shaped contact spring onto the plug body. It is
a lot of work to make the patch cables with plugs which don't quite fit,
but with the modification the result is now neat and usable.
I couldn't find anything else with a better fit. The original 0.1" taper
pins are "unobtainium".
