    I was thinking about adding another NAD 320BEE or the C270 to my existing 320BEE to bi-amp

    What are peoples views on bi-amping.. ie is it better to do this as aposed to buying a better intergrated amp?!

    bi amping certainly works but it might not be cost effective, depends how much you value you old kit. I would take the opertunity to bi amp with a better amp rather than another 320

    With your two options, I don't think adding another 320BEE would be very cost effective.

    The C270 would add a lot more ... but a better option might be to replace the 320 with the C370, or a competing amp such as the Rotel RA-02 or Arcam A75+.

    Bi amping is ok,but in my opinion,a better option is a better amp,rather than 2 similarly specc'd but relatively low powered amps.....better to wait and buy one really good one!...I know having bought a few duffers over the years.
