    Default Anyone have any experience bi amping Denon 4810ci?

    I have a Denon 4810ci and want to bi amp via an external amp. The manual really only covers bi amping with the AVR's internal amp so it doesn't say what pre out I would use for bi amping and the pre outs aren't labelled for bi amping.
    Anyone know what pre outs to use for bi amping off this receiver to an external amp? Thnx.

    The reality is you're not bi-amping without using two separate amps and using active crossovers. Anyway, this external amp you have, how many channels does it have?

    The external is a Rotel 1075. This is just something I want to try and see if I notice any difference.

    Connect the right front pre out from the AVR using a Y splitter to the amp right front and right surround, then do the same for the left. Next, connect speaker cables from the amp's right front and right surround to the right speaker running one set of cables to the top binding posts, the other to the bottom making sure you remove the jumpers first. Do the same for the left side. This is called passive bi-amping. Will you notice an improvement? Of course, you are now using an external amp, so you would notice an improvement regardless of the passive bi-amp connections.

    A better idea would be to use the external amp to power all 5 speakers in your HT rig.

    Guess I should have mentioned I am already using the Rotel (just 2 channels of it) to power my front pair, just wanted to use more of the Rotel if I could. Didn't realize I would have to use a Y splitter. Thanks for the info F1

    Just in case I get asked this question, the reason I am only using 2 channels of the 1075 is because I used to have seperates and this is the amp I used with that setup. So just looking to use more of it if I can because I prefer the way it sounds.

    I see. In that case I still say the better idea would be to use the external amp to power all 5 speakers in your HT rig. At least do the front 3 off the amp.
