Howdy !
Guess Ill just jump right in.
Im waiting on the arrival of a Yamaha RX V663. Its replacing a 10 yr old Yamaha.
The new receiver is getting paired up with some B&W 602's.
The speakers can be bi wired but Ive never done this.
The receiver can be bi amped as well.
Heres my question...do I bi amp the speakers and the receiver or does bi amping the receiver cover it ?
Im 5.1 and plan on staying 5.1 so I assume Ill be stealing power for the surrounds and giving it to the front mains ?
Does taking the power happen within the receiver internally or is it wired that way ?
Flufferfishen thanks you in advance.

This won't be a bi-amp setup. This is just bi-wire. Bi-amp would be two amps wired to one set of speakers. Each set of speaker outputs on your receiver is going to include a main pair and a bi-wire pair. You wire those to the bi-wire posts on the speakers according to the illustrations in the receiver manual. Power won't be taken from other speakers.

Biwiring is of questionable value, Biamping does have its benefits but you will need 2 identical amps, one going to each speaker.

Bi-Amping gives you more power...

Bi-Wiring gives you more speaker wire...

(well actually they both give you more wire, but one at least has a proven benefit)
