    Here's an example of why, with many AV receivers, bi-amping with just the receiver is pointless:

    A option outside the box, thanks. I'd consider it but the Adcom is sitting on my Dad's workbench with all the magic smoke released from the left channel. :(

    Not sure on the A1, I know the bigger RTi's with the 7" woofers are 80 hours use minimum to break in, 200 or so to complete break in. The A1 has just the 5.25" mid so I'd imagine the surrounds would...

    Problem is the money. I need to move someplace with a basement room that allows me to enjoy it, but that costs money too.

    Bought an Adcom GFA-5500, seems to do pretty well so far, even with "only" 200w continuous. But I don't listen at really high volume levels either.
