    Hello,

    I was just reading on a seperate forum, where somebody said they can bi-amp from their 45-47-49TX line reciever, and it is also available on the 47 series.

    I've heard of bi-wiring them, but never of bi-amping them from the reciever alone. (says he can use the stereo channels from the mains, and two channels from the secondary "other room" section. A and B, if you will)

    Is that possible, or just a mixup? It has me quite curious now.

    Thanks for any insight you can provide [​IMG]

    If the secondary section has discreet channels, and if they can be on-line at the same time as the mains, then yes you can bi-amp.

    However, many receivers with the capability to directly power secondary speakers (i.e., with on-board amps) do so by routing the rear channel amps to the secondary send. In other words, you can’t run the rear channels and the secondary at the same time. Check your manual and see what it says.
