Here is an article that dispels all the b.s...amonst many others. It addresses active and passive bi amping as well as bi wiring.
i wasnt talking bi wiring, but bi amping. bi wiring i would say is mostly a gimmick because you are only dedicating one amp to each speaker and splitting the cable at speaker end so that wouldn't really make a difference. in bi amping , two amps are dedicated to a speaker, and that is where there is a bump in performance.You will find articles on the net that go both way regarding bi amping, i've read them all since ive been bi amping fronts for many years. I could pull out as many articles on the net that would conclude saying that bi amping makes a difference as opposed to those that say it does not do anything. All those opinions are fine and well, what matters is practical experience and based on that i can say on my paradigms, bi amp makes an audible difference to me. this may not be true with all speaker brands/setups and listening environments but works for me with my setup.

Anyway, this is the MA owners thread, the general discussion on bi amping may do well in a separate thread, i wont deviate further in this thread.
