    Currently have this amp for sale in the classified section. However, in the event it doesn't sell can anybody suggest a possible use for it to enhance the sound from my AVC-1SR and bi-wireable speakers?

    Either use it to Bi-Amp your front speakers or use it power the front speakers alone and let the A1SR handle the rest of the setup.

    Thanks for the feedback Jase.

    Do you honestly think there will be a benefit to the sound if I choose to let the power amp drive the front speakers. If the answer is yes then that is what I will do.

    I think the biggest improvement will come from bi-amping the mains. To be honest, I would try both options and go with what sounds best. :)

    I agree - biamping the front speakers is most likely to bring the biggest improvements.

    I don't fully understand why you'd power the front speakers with a POA-T10 alone to free up the poweramps. What would you use the spare poweramps for (haven't you got enough already :D?)?

    Thanks Jase/Dimmy,

    Bi-amping the front speakers it is then.

    It can work well as it reduces the work the main unit has to do. The transformer then only has to supply power to five channels rather than seven.:) Bi-Amping would still be my choice in this particular case though (use all the amps! :D )

    HI all. :)

    Sorry if it's a bit off-topic. ;)

    sunlink, how would you say your 1SR sounds in terms of 2ch and 5ch playback compared to your 10SE?
    Was there a dramatic improvement when playing CDs for example?

    Thanks in advance.

    DDlooping,

    I wouldn't say the difference has been dramatic but in fairness I have only set it up temporarily as I will be moving my kit into the new lounge when completed. I will also be bi-amping and bi-wiring which should lead to improvements.
    Of course this all may have something to do with the quality of my AVC-10SE, which in my opinion is one of the most underated pieces of AV kit to hit the shelves.

    Steve ;)

    I would say that if movies is the priority in using the Denon then bi-amp the center - if possible.
