I am getting a onkyo tx-nr5007. At a 145w per channel at 8ohms, can I bi-amp my m80s?

ok cool. Theoretically what would the advantage be? I'm not going to be using all 9 channels, so I figured it wouldn't hurt.

Well we know it's not because having two kids leaves one with little to do all day. Which begs the question... how HAVE you racked up 13815 posts exactly???

Alex, you said you didn't see "too much" of a difference, what difference could you tell?

Well theoretically speaking, some advantages I can think of are :

A. You will have the peace of mind in knowing there aren't any more wires that you could be running to your M80's.

B. In case a tornado rips your house apart, your M80's will be better secured to your reciever than those of us who do not have our M80's bi-amped.

C. You can remove those gold connectors between the 4 posts on the back of your M80's and use them as ear rings. smile
