Hi there, I have had my Arcam Alpha 10 + DAVE, Arcam Alpha 10 P, and Arcam Alpha 10 P/3 and a Arcam DV88 for a few years now and I am starting to consider upgrading (not because I need to but just because I am one of those upgrade freaks!). The system works very well and I have no complaints apart from that it doesn't support some of the latest Dolby decoding standards. I currently have my system set-up with the Arcam Alpha 10 + DAVE and Alpha 10 P bi-amping my front stereo speakers. Then I have my surrounds and centres powered off the Alpha 10 P/3. I am thinking of upgrading to the FMJ AV8 + FMJ P8 along with the new FMJ DV29A. What I am want to know is can I still bi-amp my front stereo speakers and have the surrounds and centre too all power from the AV8/P7 ? I understand the P7 is like 7 separate amps in itself or am I wrong? Also I assume if I do this then I obviously can't make use of the Dolby 6 or 7 channel speaker decoding formats as I would still only be able to support 5 speakers. I am right or wrong here? And finally has anyone taken this upgrade route (from Alpha 10 -> AV8+P7)? Did you notice an improvement? Is it worth it? Many thanks, Gareth.
