    That is not bi-amping as that requires separate amps among other things. What you are purposing would be bi-wiring. You could do the same by running two pairs of speaker cables off the A binding posts. Netting the same basic results as what you purpose is to simply replace the stock jumper plates with high quality speaker cable.

    Understandable....with Monitor 30's anyway. Thing with receivers....they have one power supply, a cheap one at that, and that power can be dished out all on speaker A or speaker A+B, but it's the same amount of power. Same with a HT receiver, same power, dished out over 2 channels or up to 7 channels.

    Is there something in the sound your wanting to improve on ?
