    Hi Folks ,

    I have a Nad C162 preamplifier with a Nad c270 power amp at the present , would I need to get an identical nad c270 to bi amp the system or would I be able to use the new nad c272 ? I notice the nad c270 is 125 wpc where the nad 272 is 150 wpc. Does anyone know is this is likely to work?

    All advice is much appreciated.

    Both the C270 & C272 have the same gain.

    Convention would suggest using the more powerful amp for your bass drivers.

    What speakers are you using?
    If they are a "two way", I wouldn't advise bi-amping as you may fry your tweeters.

    In my experience, its only worth (passive bi-amping) three way loudspeakers of the big floorstander variety where the mid & HF are on one set of terminals and the bass drivers crossover section on the other.
