Just get some rca plugs and link the centre pins with some wire. 
 

You don’t need to connect the outer barrels because they are connected internally, but you can if you want.

WTF not take a pic and post it - just to make things perfectly clear for the punters here, who are trying to help you?  :(

 

 

If you really do need 5 pairs ... it would seem they are not the "Solid RCA jumpers , needed to connect the preamp to power amp section of the amp " that @DEANO23 mentioned?

 

So you have me totally confused.  A pic of the back panel of your amp would be nice - with your current 500mm cables in place.

Bit harsh there don’t you think Andy , poor bugger was just asking for help.

You get up on the wrong side of the bed. 😉

 

Admittedly a pic would of helped. 👍

Just Andy's abrasive way, he does it all the time.  A bit confronting for newbies though.

I'm a big boy and have given my share of sharp and over aggressive comments in forums over the years. In the newsgroup days I would hit back at comments like Andy's and start a never ending fight. So this is the mature me. in my 50's now :)

A reply from a forum member above showed the Altronics part number and price. 

 

Although I have found in the days when I was using vintage gear that there was not standard sizes they seem to differ from one amp manufacturer to another.

Sure he was, Pops (asking for help).  But - like so many people - he didn't understand that the more info you give, when you ask for help ... the more helpful people can be.  :)

I’ve never understood why these connectors aren’t shielded or insulated from shorting, any idea?

They are short and run close to the metalwork of the case, so don't need shielding.  The chance of shorting is minimal  as they a fixed and small.

I had a Lenco amp and replaced the bent metal jumpers with RCA plugs with really short good quality interconnect cables. Difference was HUGE. 

 

I'd guess you might or will be disappointed with the degradation in sound quality.

Absolutely!  :thumb:

 

If steel sounded good - we'd all be using cables with steel wire inside - not copper!

 

Mfrs do it for 2 reasons, I suggest:

  1. cost
  2. robustness.

wow what a rollercoaster of a thread. First I thought it was jumpers, then I thought it was short RCA cables, but it ended up being jumper... not cardigans.

 

A true thriller that'll have you hooked till the end ;)

If you follow the thread you’ll discover it was about jumpers all along. Don’t let anyone pull the wool over your eyes

They were solidly in place,  that's for sure, but I have never touched them  as the Pioneer VSX-DS1  is an absolute beast of an amplifier I only used in stereo mode:

 

"The receiver's well-ventilated top cover became fairly hot during its preconditioning period and subsequent tests. With both front main channels driving 8-ohm loads at 1,000 Hz, the outputs clipped at 157 watts per channel. With 4-ohm loads the output at clipping increased to 210 watts per channel. The respective dynamic power outputs were 189 and 253 watts. We also measured dynamic power into 2 ohms, for a reading of 324 watts. We did not attempt 2-ohm operation in the continuous-power tests in view of the VSX-D1S's very high power rating and the risk of blowing fuses or even damaging the receiver. "

But that's exactly what you are supposed to do with jumpers.
