    Hi.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on an A85 with 7.1 board and have a quick question.


    I will need to buy another power amp for a 4.1 setup. If I get an amp that is bigger and better than the Arcams built in 85w amp, can I some assign or configure the Arcams amp to drive the rear speakers and use the external amp for the fronts? (Source is Denon 2200 Universal)

    I'm imagining I could run the Denons Front L&R to the Arcams Rear In and then connect the external amp(therefore front speakers) to the Arcams rear out. This should work for multichannel no? and cd?

    Thanks,

    B.

    Hi,

    There is an arcam forum here on avforums. It's further down the list of forums, and under manufacturer specific forums. Maybe you should try asking in there?

    This should work fine although you need to make sure that you are using 7.1 channel input only. If you try using other stereo sources on other inputs then it will output the sound through your rears.
