I own a VSX-33 since 3 or 4 years and I just bought a pair of Polk Audio RTI-A9 speakers to use as my front L & R speakers. I'm planning to bi-amp these speakers and I'd like to know if I do so, can I still connect my two surround back speakers to keep my 7.1 surround setup? Since the Bi-amp would use the surround back terminals, can I still plug my surround back speakers? I guess I would use banana plugs to achieve this?
I don't think it will work as the bi-amping uses the amp that would drive the rear back surround. I have my fronts bi-amped now and they have been since new. Another thread mentions that there may be now noticeable difference with the front speakers bi-amped so try them without first.
Hey people, I have re-uploaded the firmware update for everyone to mediafire since the original link expired. The zip contains the firmware update and instructions for updating the VSX-1120-K, VSX-33, and VSX-1325-K. Again, make sure your thumb drive is formatted FAT32 before copying the firmware to it. Thanks, and enjoy !!!!
