stock MIJ Sony mods

Hey folks,

Due to my amps age, things have broken down. So I have to replace stock plastic spring clip speaker outputs as well as installing Jumpers on PCB for Preamp to power amp... taking the aluminium/steel/nickel? U Jumpers and rca jacks out of signal path.

So opinions I'd like some input on are solder to use for Jumpers and for binding post/PCB and lead wires. As well as Spades, internal speaker cab wire and Faston connectors.

In guitar work I prefer WBT.
Solder I have is:

*WBT w lead
*Mundorf AG/AU/CU
*Johnson w lead
*Cardas Quad Eutectic.

So which of those for Pre/power section Jumpers made from Morrow Audio IC wires?

Which solder for individual or entire signal path of tin wire tips, PCB joints and binding post contact joints?

Next is spades, under $100 for 4. These are my current options:

*XShadpw Reference (OFC Cu, heavy AG plate)

*Oyaide SPYT (Alpha Cu, Ag/paladium plated, cryo treated)

*Onix R (OFC Cu, Rhodium plated)

*Furutech FP-203, (Alpha pure Cu, Rhodium plate

Which plated type for each, tweeters, Mids and Woofer...

Faston: Oyaide:

Internal Speaker Cab Wire:

*Duelund WE16GA? 16 AWG tinned stranded Cu, oil/cotton jacket
*Oyaide Explorer V2 18 awg solid core Cu
*Kimber 4VS

Also, out of wires above and Furutech FS-303 Stranded Cu 16 AWG wire, which would you use for leads from PCB to speaker output Binding posts contacts?

General audio characteristics I'm after are: Musical, large 3D soundstage, warm/natural balance, imaging and then detail.

Thanks folks
