    I’m considering running a H/K PA2000 (bridged) from my H/K 525 “Pre Out” for my mains. This will be my first experience with running separates and I had a few questions. Will this effect any of my setups for “Channel Adjust”, “Delay Adjust” and “Crossover” settings for TosLink, Video 1 or “8 Channel Direct” analog inputs used for my Denon 2900? For SACD/DVD-A playback I’m using “6/8 Channel Direct” mode on my 525. I don’t think those analog inputs will be effected but what about the other inputs?

    The process:

    1) Disconnect speakers from 525.

    2) Connect speakers to 2000, connect preout leads to 2000.

    3) Recalibrate channel levels for all inputs.

    That's it. Delay, crossover, none of that will change. The additional power will probably cause your main L/R levels to be slightly off, but once you calibrate those back in (or calibrate everything else to match), you'll be fine. Only the levels need to be adjusted. Globally.

    Drew is correct. Leave delay and crossover alone, recalibrate system for all input sources (channel adjust)

    Wayne thanks for the link. I guess you are referring to the higher THD issue when bridging an amp. Here are the specs on the PA 2000 from H/K:

    4 x 45 watts @ 8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz,

    "Should I be suspicious of the fact that the THD is listed the same whether the amp is bridged or not?"

    Anyone?
