I agree with the above poster. Bi-amping serves no purpose whatsoever. But to answer your question, no you cannot with the unit you are considering. It a 2 channel amp only and has no unused internal amps to use like an AVR. Even with an AVR, bi-amping by using the unused channels brings no benefit.

Just hook up your B&W's to the Marantz normally and enjoy the music!

Parasound 5125, Parasound 2100, Pro-ject RM 5.1SE, Dynavector 10x5, Pro-ject Phono Box S, Pro-ject Speed Box II, Arcam FMJ CD17, Pioneer Elite VSX-52, Pioneer Elite BDP-52FD, Vienna Acoustics Bach Grands, Vienna Acoustics Theatro Grand, Wharfedale Diamond 9.2s, REL T-1 & Panasonic TC-P54S1

OP- do you also have a theater setup? If not, I would recommend buying a nice home theater receiver or pre/pro with
room correction as I believe that something like the Denon AVR-3312 or AVR-4311 would equal the Marantz that you are currently looking at, plus it would provide the opportunity to purchase an HTM1D or an HTM2D to go along with those 805D's. That would give you a hella nice theater and 2 channel setup all in one!
