Apologies if this is a silly question, but is there any real advantage (or indeed, disadvantage) with the Speakon connector? If looking at the more professionally oriented speakers it seems that jack and/or XLR is the favoured connection but you still see Speakon connectors (I think Harbeth still use Speakon for their professional line). Is there any real advantage or disadvantage to any of these formats? I tend to like XLR as I find it gives a good secure connection but I see nothing wrong with jacks. I have some Speakon cables in my sound desk boxes but have never used them.
