You can absolutely use banana plugs. Or spades. Or bare wire.

Banana plugs are fine, the ones on the wire page are just hooked together by a piece of plastic, but are still regular bananas.

On the other hand, there's no reason to use plugs, bare wire into the binding posts works perfectly well, and eliminates one connection (wire to posts, instead of wire to plugs to posts).

On the other hand, I'm a banana plugaholic. It sure is a lot easier to plug/unplug when moving around, cleaning, testing, etc.

I use either the Axiom ones, with 2 tied together, for back of speakers, or individuals where you can plug another into them, for back of receiver, or the little monster ones.

Lady Gaga's fans have their own banana plugs?

That's what Lady Gaga calls her fans.
Also, a bit off topic, but, I also use Monster banana plugs.

That receiver can use banana plugs for all 5 channels. Do be aware that bananas do increase the overall install depth of the receiver. So if you're using a closed-back stand of any sort, take that into account.

Also the spacing between posts is not standard. So while Axiom's clipped bananas may work nice with their speakers there's no reason to assume the same will fit the receiver (but you could get lucky).
