    :hiya: Hello,

    I recently bought a DENON 2805, I am very happy with sound and features but I am trying to have it in 5.1 bi-wired front. speakers, I do not seem to work it out.
    Do I have to connect them in (Speakers A) and (Surround back or Zone2 speakers) or Speakers A + B this way it won't be a real biwired can you please advice please :confused:

    Thanks for helping me.

    Sounds to me like your getting mixed up between bi-wiring and bi-amping.

    Bi-wiring: you run the speakers from two speaker outs (+ve and -ve) on the amp to the four speaker connections on the speaker using a four wire cable in a 2 to 4 configuration.

    B-amping, you use two separate sources (different speaker outs on the same unit or different amplifiers) to run the high and low level inputs on the speakers.

    Bi-wiring is therefore pretty simple (once you have the right cable) but I'm not sure how bi-amping will work with your Denon.

    Hope this clarifies.

    The Denon manual does not give details on how to bi-amp as whilst it is possible Denon do not officially support it.

    If you do a search on bi-amping/ bi-wiring you will find many debates on if biwiring is worth it and if bi-amping using a single amp is even worth it.

    Best thing to do is to try it for yourself and if you can hear an improvement then great, if not then you have spent only a small amount on some extra speaker cable
