What is the best way to terminate speaker cable: bare wire, spade or banana?

Bananas are easy to connect/disconnect, spades are good because you can screw them down (mind the size of the binding post for spades), bare seems to oxidise the copper. I use bananas and they are fine:)

Using the same speaker cables, I terminated both bananas and spades but just could NOT hear any differences. Since I play around alot with my gear, bananas work better (more convenience) for me.
