    Just a quickee, would it be possible (or indeed worthwhile) to use 2 integrated amplifiers to bi-amp off a DV88? The DV88 has 2 analogue outs, and my current amp is a Marantz PM7200, which has no pre-outs.

    I don't think this would work to well as you would have to be careful to keep the volume on the two amps set to the same level. If you did not do this you would find the tone would not be correct.

    Bad idea, get a matching power amp to the integrated amp you plan to keep and get rid of the other one.
