    Look at the back.
    2 pairs of posts means biwire.
    Better? Thats for you to decide...Lots of controversy on that one

    two sets of posts could mean it's setup for bi-amping also. bi-wiring to me doesn't make any difference. i could never here it if there was but some people say it helps.

    I am assuming that you have two pairs of binding post at the back of your speakers. I bi-wire my speakers, and have done so for about ten years. I found that there in fact was a benefit. The treble region became cleaner and more detailed; while the bass also had more detail. So I recommend you give it a try and trust your ears. It does not have to be an expensive proposition. I find trying things like this out to be fun.
    Remember, different isn't always better, but it is different.
    Keep things as simple as possible, but not too simple.
    Let your ears decide for you!

    Benefit? There is no evidence to support that there is any except to the economy by selling more wire.
    Lots of claims don't make it a fact.
