    I am a proud owner of an ARCAM A85 integrated (excellent amplifier).
    I have recently had a chance to have another one for a bargain price.
    Now I would like to use one of them as a power amplifier and biamping
    my Triangle Celius speakers. Is it possible to do this? Is there any difference
    between using A85 as a power amplifier and P85 power amplifier?
    And which method is better ; vertical or horizontal biamping?
    Regards.

    I believe one of the inputs can be used as an AV bypass input and thus allows you to use the A85 as a power amp. If you read the instruction manual i'm sure you'll find out how to do this.

    I actually managed how to connect two A85s. There is a switch at rear side
    to separate pre/power section of A85. What I wonder is that if there is a performance difference between this combo and A85/P85 combo.
