    1. AVR3805 w/ 2 REF2002s biamping the speakers

    or

    2. AVR3805 w, 2 REF2001s not biamping?

    I'm really not sure about this. The 2001 has a ton of current, but would the 2002s current be more than enough when biamping?

    please don't suggest 4 2001s... I don't even want to consider spending that much.

    Thanks

    I think option 1 would be better at least on paper.

    Robert, they are the better of the two classes of amps B&K sells. The REF2002 is a 2 x 200 watt amp while the REF2001 is a 200 watt monoblock. The thing is, the REF2001 (monoblock) has a great deal more current than the REF2002...
