Currently have RTi150s powered by NAD370 (120 wpc). Has anybody tried bi-amping with the NAD 270? Any sound quality benefits??

    First, welcome to the Club.

    There are tons of threads here about the 150's and the power they need to sing. Many have added external 2 ch amps to bi-amp in parallel with AVR's. Most have reported much fuller sound with added power.

    Originally, I had a low-end Sony SDR695 AVR to drive the RTi150s. Not being much of an audiophile, I thought the Polks sounded pretty good and unlike many, never had a problem with the Sony going into protection mode. However, after reading all the threads regarding the power hungry RTi150's, I purchased the NADC370 for stereo listening. I expected I would get some improvement in sound quality and power over the Sony, but let me tell you, the difference was amazing. Sound stage and detail better than I have ever heard before. And power, a quarter turn on the NAD volume dial can shake the house. So I quess I'm not looking for more power but rather, more quality. I may just try bi-amping - plus I love the look of those NAD components stacked 4 feet high.

    The lower end Sony compared to NAD is definetly night and day. I really like the warmth and honest, dynamic power that NAD offers, it's a great brand.

    Glad you are enjoying your new gear :)
