    Hi guys
    My current system is a Denon 3802 with Tannoy Revolution R3 fronts (rest is unimportant I guess).

    As well as making the move from 5.1 to 7.1 I'm also thinking about bi-amping the Tannoys.

    Was thinking about picking up an old Quad 303 off ebay. Would using the Denon and the Quad together produce better results than just using the quad on it's own? How would I go about setting this up?

    Or should I not waste my money at all?

    I'd be more concerned with trying to find a poweramp with the same gain attributes as the AVR-3802, rather than the benefits of biamping, which IMHO are plainly obvious once you hear the difference.

    Were I you I wouldn't get too excited about biamping. The Denon's a very good receiver.

    The sound character of the Quad 303 is very different from your Denon,as is the power output,and I'd expect a very unusual result!....Dimmy's suggestion is right...try to find something that matches your Denon both sonically,and in terms of gain and sensitivity before biamping,if that's what you want to do.
