    What/Is there any benefit in bi-wiring your speakes to the A&B binding posts - or both to the A binding posts?

    My dealer sauid that there was no benefit gained by connecting to both A+B speaker terminals, when I was considering this question. It is easier just to common the ends in to two banana plugs and just use the A terminal

    The benefit is obviously that you don't need to squezze two pair of speaker cables into one plug.<br />The audiophile would of course argue that using the B terminals could affect the sound, but that's as unprooven as the benefits of bi-wring itself.

    Isn't it funny that in the search for 'near perfect' home cinema sound we follow blindly advice given, usually at our own cost!! Rgb vs S-video, Coax' vs Optical

    I cannot honestly say that I noticed any difference by bi wiring - people say that there is tightr bass etc, but I haven't got dog ears! my hearing is only so sensitive!

    <br />Lets just watch the film!

    If you wire 2 speakers together, their combined resistance will drop to from 8 ohms each to 4 ohms.. and this does affect the amp!

    You need to be carful about over heating your amp.
