Just wondering. When you hook up an external amp to a Denon receiver does this disable the amps on the Denon?

I've not tried hooking up an external to my Denon, but isn't that what the pre-outs do? once you hook a speaker up to the pre-out, you have bypassed the amp for that particular channel while leaving the amp working on the other channels?

Unless its got some little loops in the back like Ive seen on old Yamaha amps then the receivers amp will still be running, but given that its got no load its not going to contribute much noise or load to the rest of the system. Don't worry about it.

So then in theory one could bi amp a set of M80's then. If you took your AVR and pre outed the two mains and then used the second amp as well....no?

Would bi amping be better than one dedicated 300-350W @ 4 ohms stable be?

You can't bi-amp the same signal. As soon as you use the preout for a particular speaker on the receiver you can't hook up the same speaker to the receiver output for that speaker. I guess I should let Let John K answer this.

you could bi-amp if you had bi-wiring and bi-speakers.... but theres not much point... not that theres ever been much point to bi-wiring.

A bi speaker is one that can switch one of its outputs to an input, right?


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

I thought that was a herma speaker.
