Not sure which post you were talking about.
I always used the pre wired end to do my connections.
They were always female.
The Receiver female sockets were exactly the diameter of the 4 conductor telephone cable I used. I took that photo so I know what wires I used for what color LED string.
Soldering the LED ribbon I selected is a bear due to the molded plastic covering. It has a tendency to peel up the printed circuit when you cut it free. They make a connector you just snap on; but I think it is for the other type (not waterproof) of ribbon.
