Default Audio Wire Connector Question/Opinion!?...

So I've got this old "Program One" stereo receiver & equalizer, and the RCA jacks are pretty crummy from sitting idle for 20+ years, so I've ordered new jacks to replace the old ones...upon inspection, I see that the backside of the jacks are actually wrapped (pics) with the their specific wires...no sort of connectors present. I am taking a short cut and attaching 22-20 guage pull to seat terminals to the wires, and then connecting to backside of the RCA jacks as the pics show. They are are very snug fit, and I also plan to add solder for reinforcement. Can anyone offer me their opinion on approaching this project in this way? Using this sort of connection rather than wrapping the wire as it was originally? Or is there a different kind of connector that would work better for this project? Please let me know! Would love some input on this!

I would just solder wires directly to the terminals of the RCA jack.

If the originals were not broken, why replace them with something that likely won't mount properly

I'd also vote for cleaning the originals if possible. You may not like the replacement, do the holes line up perfectly? Need to drill another hole in the case?

If the original was cracked or broken in some way, I'd agree and resort to just soldering to the pins which were designed for PCBs - quick disconnects won't hold onto those pins very well.

you would need a wrapping tool and also original style pins to wrap the wire onto . not worth the expense and trouble .just clean old ones if not broken .
