    Hello, sorry if this is a silly question but I am new to the hifi world and still finding my feet. I have read about bi amplifying using two amplifiers to connect to a set of speakers. On the back my amp I can connect 2 sets of speakers at the same time. So my question is can I use this in the same way to bi amplify my speakers.

    Harman kardon hk 3370
    Mission m32

    Thank you

    Short answer - no.

    To bi-amp you need two separate amplifiers, usually an integrated amp & a power amp. All you would achieve by using the second speaker terminals on your HK is what's called bi-wiring. Some say it has merit & others not. If you have sufficient spare speaker cable you can give it a try for yourself.
