Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on this.
The marantz is supposed to handle a 6 ohm load. If i biamp my m-60's will it be able to handle the load?

And in turn if i do buy a seperate power amp will it work in all the normal modes (eg dts, neo, dd, ect?)

In order to bi-amp, you need 2 amps. I don't know if the Marantz is set up like the Denons where you can set the 6th and 7th channel amps to do biamping of the fronts, but if it's not, you're not biamping. And you probably will damage the receiver. It's also debatable whether biamping will add anything without using an external crossover.

A separate amp will work with all the modes.

No, no, links are fine.

Certain people (names shall not be named to protect...well, me, since I can't remember who does it) like to fix links for new posters (or old and lazy posters) so that they are clickable. That's all that happened...

kcarlie

yes i was thinking about adding a seperate amp.

The b zone of the marantz will only support a 12-16 ohm load when A and B zones are being driven.

My question is if the marantz will be able to handle the load of the M60's when the shorting bar is removed at the binding posts.
