    Hi

    Can anyone confirm to me whether this amp (as sold in the UK) has the same "shutdown" problems as the US version TX45 ?

    Also is 100W x 7 not a bit weak for an amp of this stature ? Or has it ample power to drive any speaker you can throw at it ?

    Can you bi-wire your fronts with this amp. I can see only two sets of binding posts at the back (i.e. 4 ) for the front speakers, should there not be 8 in total for bi-wiring ? Or do one use two cables on each post ?

    Sorry for all the Questions !

    Cheers

    No problems, its seems Pioneer sorted it out before releasing it here.

    It should be fine for most 8 ohm speakers but be careful with 4 ohm ones, (not recommended by all accounts)

    Use two cables on each post if you need to biwire, (much easdier with bannana plugs)

    Pioneer gives you an option to bi-wire the front speakers by using the back surround channels of the amp.
    Of course by doing this you can only get 5.1 surround instead 7.1.
    Something I considered doing myself, but I decided I'd rather have full surround capabilities rather than bi-wired fronts.

    Cheers

    This is actually a bi-amp option - you would be driving each speaker with two amps rather than a single amp if the two cables were attached to the same posts.
