I was reading up on this receiver today as Costco had them on sale... long story short, I came across some people who run the receiver in 5.1 instead of 7.1 (various reasons)

They wrote that you can bi-amp the front channels and use the unused amps from the 7.1

Meaning you can hook up the highs to the front left and right and hook up the mids/bass to the unused rear surrond (changing the input/output somehow)

Has anyone heard of this or tried it? From what they wrote you would have your 120watt/channel doubled for the front.

No. This has been discussed several times on the board. The maximum power that would be available to each section of the speaker is still 120 watts, not 240 watts. The one power supply section is simply sending its power through two output transistor sets, rather than one, so no increase in power(or any other significant advantage)results, and the effort isn't worthwhile.
