    Does anyone know if banana plugs can be used with the pioneer vsx-d812.

    I want to bi-wire my speakers an I think banana plugs will make the the wiring of the amp much easier.

    Thanks

    Yes. you need to remove the plastic thingy so that the plugs can go thru.

    By "plastic thingy", I think overfloe means the bung in the middle of the speaker terminal - on my old 811, they came out easily with a small headed screwdriver.

    What has been your feelings towards the D812? I am considering one myself, but still undecided!

    I have been very impressed with the 812, it seems a great leap forward from my old yamaha 420. The sound is much crisper and just generally sounds better to my (untrained) ears. IMHO the movement of sounds between left and right, front and rear is fantastic.

    What speakers do you intend to run with it? I am using B&W 603's at the front, and LCR600 centre and Mk2 'Eggs' at the rear. Also have an REL quake.

    I have only just ordered my first DVD player, so really just planning ahead at the moment! As soon as funds permit I will be diving head first into the surround sound fest! I was planning to probably go for a set of Canton CD-1's, what do you think!

    I would not call myself a sound expert, so do not feel qualified to select a separte speaker set-up? Dilemna! (But a good one, I suppose!)
