I just got sucked in by that extra feature Marantz offers, and all those extra binding posts!
Regarding the getting sucked in part...
As you can pretty much derive fro rdgrimes comments, the bi-amping feature that most modern AVRs offer,
is more of a marketing gimmick to sell equipment than it is an actual feature that you get for your money.
Of course anyone who isn't familiar with how true bi-amping works wouldn't know the difference,
but once you find out, then you're better off knowing.
Of course that also doesn't mean that any given AVR that has the bi-amping option isn't a good piece of equipment,
especially a Marantz model which are usually quite good.
Again it's just a way to make the product appear to have more features for the money paid, or more features than a cheaper AVR.
