    I currently have a humble ( but very musical) A65+ integrated and would like to consider my upgrade options. Can anyone offer some pointers? I was thinking of adding a P80 to bi-amp, but can I use the A65+ as just a preamp or does it have to be used to drive the tweeters when connected to a P80.

    Is it possible for me to use a P90 with the A65+ ?

    Appreciate any advice you can offer.

    Cheers.

    Ajaz.

    I really need to hang onto the A65+ for the time being, but may change it at a later date. Just would like to know if the A65 can be used as just a pre with say a P80 driving everything and would it be feasible to add say a P90 instead to my integrated.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Ajaz.

    Thanks for that. Now I just need to find out if I can bi-amp the A65 using a single P90?

    Yes the P90 will work very well in this set up - use it to drive the woofers and the A65 the tweeters and go for it :) Don't forget to remove the links on the back of the speakers before doing this though.

    Many thanks to everyone for your help. I think a P90 is the way forward for me.
