    I want to upgrade my pioneer cinema system as i'm not happy with the sats and amp(30 wpc) for music dvds.The problem my wife has is big front speakers in addition to my hi-fi speaker(just a sony all in one hi-fi) could I get bi-wireable spakers and hook up my hi-fi to them as well as my cinema amp? thus removing two speakers from the room and getting some nice floorstanders.:D

    What you could do is just pass the hi-fi output into the amp, and have one set of floorstanders conected to the amp/receiver...

    Then all you have to do is switch sources on the amp depending on what you want to listen too, hi-fi or DVD etc...

    Do I understand you correctly, you are buying some speakers and a new amp?

    You are confusing Bi - wiring with Bi - amping also. Bi-Wiring uses one amp/receiver to send the treble and bass signals seperately to your speaker, helping increase seperation and clarity/resolution of the sound...

    Bi-Amping is similar to the above, except you use seperate amps to send the treble/bass seperately...

    You need to check the outputs on the back of your (all-in-one?) hi-fi...

    At least it should have left and right analog (phono) out, if your lucky you might have optical. What is your hi-fi, and is it a recent model?

    you will need to connect the line out from the all-in1 it will probably be labled "line out" or "record out" to a line in on the amp (aux is the most prefered choice)
    dont use the speaker out (hifi) to line in (amp) as i heard this can cause some damage to the receiver
