The overall processing of the plug really makes a very good impression. The screw thread runs well. The screw terminals also permit large cross-sections. The cable gland has a membrane sleeve that retains moisture! Also the materials used look quite valuable.
But now it comes: The plugs wiggle in the socket! I have tried several of these plugs with several sockets (also Neutrik). Compared to a Neutrik plug you can move the SP-4-FN of Amphenol clearly back and forth! For me, this is a no-go for plug-in connections, through which partly higher currents flow than with an outlet. Apparently, the shaft diameter in the connector design was simply too small. This is perhaps half a millimeter, which makes this, otherwise great plug for me completely unusable.
Or does Neutrik make the jacks too big? Hardly likely. I mean, "Hey, werrr chat's found?"
Of course, I can not provide proof for a reduced current loadability, but alone to know that the thing does not sit half-tightly in the socket lets me rather have my old 2.5 mm "Speakon cable with Neutrik plugs back than the new Amphenol SP- 4-FN (even with 4mm² cable).
I'm actually a big Amphenol fan. (At least what jack plug is concerned.) But: dear Amphenol Designer- please repair here!
Supplement: I have measured times! Surprise!!! : The shafts are oval !! For Neutrik as well as for Amphenol. At Neutrik, the most narrow and widest point is 17.35 and 17.43 mm. With amphenol, it is only 17.28 and 17.32 mm. Sounds a little on - but seems to wobble! ;-)
