I have Polk RTi150 mains, monitor 10b for surrounds, csi40 center, and an old yamaha for rear center. I am using a Denon 2802 for pre/HT processor and am driving the center and rear center with the Denon internal amps.


Currently I am driving the mains bi-wired with a Carver [email protected] amp and the surrounds with an old Carver receiver 130 [email protected] 8 ohms amp section. I am wondering if I would get better results if I bi-amp using the bigger amp for the low end of the mains only and the lesser powered Carver's amp for the mids/highs. This would mean moving the surrounds back to the Denons surround channel amps. I enjoy movies alot and don't want to shortchange the surround speakers of available power/headroom, but I listen much more to 2 channel music than movies and I thought the biamp setup I've described might yield better sound/ performance than simply bi-wiring. Do you think the Denon's 90wpc would still be enough for the surrounds without clipping on movies and possibly damaging the monitor 10s?


I have just purchased a parasound pld 1100 preamp and will be feeding the analog out from my Toshiba 9200 dvd player to the parasound and then ont the amp/amps and speakers and just want to get the best out of what I have. I know the proof is in the trying but I just wondered if anyone had any input up front for me. Thanks for any opinions. It's always interesting reading!

Any thoughts on this for me? I know this subject has been discussed here but I'd still be interested in some fresh input. Thanks in advance for any response.

Sorry Steve, we just couldn't get the trained bi-amp monkeys to perform their routine this time. Re-read all the other threads on the topic.
