Yea I could have done that too I guess, but am too lazy to do that every couple of years. Once setup, I'd rather just leave everything alone. Until I have to upgrade.
I purchased monster banana (screw on) clips with the wires and they are the best inventions IMO. So easy to connect/disconnect and all gold plated so hopefully no oxidation and 'properly terminated'.
