Cable wise your not going to go wrong with any of Marks cables - though I see they are out if stock!

You would need to explain a bit more about your planned connectivity before folk can understand your question about saving channels on your AVR.

Sorry I was a little vague. I am going to use a Marantz SR7007 as a pre/processor and an Audiolab 8000x7 as a power amp. To bi amp with the marantz it requires you to sacrifice the surround back channels so I could only use 5 instead of 7. Theres an option on the Audiolab to bridge the channels which means I could use the full 7 on the Marantz if I got an extra 2 channel power amp or use the internal amp on the Marantz for the last 2 channels, but I have read that bridging alters the sound and not for the better. Someone mentioned that using a y splitter is possible if you wanted to bi amp to one pre out which means I could still use the full 7 channels but then I seen these bi amp cables which look alot more solid than those cheap splitters. Bridging gives an extra 50 watt. I assume bi amping with a splitter or bi amp cable would give 200 watt which is double the power of 1 channel. Would this be the best way of bi amping or is it best to use 2 different pre outs and sacrifice the other channels. Also looking to know if anyone is using these cables for bi amping and what their results are.

Thanks
Jeff
