First of all...there is no
benefit to bi-amping bookshelf speakers. A complete waste of time/money.
well i understand that the subject is in a debate,my logic says that if the speaker manufactures make the option to bi amp it wont be for nothing,id say that if it was a consensus,it was well known by now or at least was less in a debate,but thats just my logic ,i have no comparison yet,i guess ill have to check it myself.
Second...you want a pre-amp or integrated amp that has a subout connection. Most do these days.
When I first started using subs ('79) the only choice was connecting with speaker wire...and of coarse you still can.
That requires using the sub's XO...but using a pre-amp's subout is even better, having the pre-amp doing the bass management.[/quote]
ok i googled sub out vs pre out,i understand the deference between a subout & pre out is that the subout has a filter before it,to eliminate the mid & highs, so will it be the same if i have a filter on the sub it self(which i think the rythmik d15se has)? or is it consider to be better to send the signal already filtered to the sub..?
i understand that i cant use the bass management on the pre for controling the sub-so again,can i just adjust the bass on the sub itself ..? and same thing with the volume...so if I'm adjusting all these PROPERLY,will the preout basically be like a subout ...?
im on a budget so i can't get a new or up to date gear,my compromises have to be one the power gear,iv also got a dealer demo kef cq20 cues couldn't get them new,so im just guessing that if i want to get an integrated amp with subout,it will cost me quite a bit,i prefer to get a bit old used arcam for 400-500$,tell me if im wrong doing that.
btw,YES! i am planing to have a cd player,i think ill get a refurbish nad ,or the arcam c192-older,but iv red great reviews on this unit.
cheers 4dhd,dont feel obligated to reply ,ill exhaust you
