I'm new to the world of being a high end speaker owner. I'd like to know a little more about bi-wiring. First, does it make that much of an audible difference, or do the jumpers provide basically the same sound? Second, how does one go about bi-wiring? I've seen diagrams that indicate one should hook up two separate sets of speaker wire into one speaker jack on the receiver, which the receiver manual always says not to do. I looked into buying some bi-wire cable, but the only thing I could find (at Tweeter, Good Guys and Circuit City don't even carry it) was a huge cable by Monster (so big it had its own plastic case for two cables) for $300. It's not worth that much to me right now.
I've heard that bi-wiring can really open up the mids, and I've seen some complaints about the RTi 10's lacking in the mids, although I haven't found that to be the case at all. Should I bi-wire, or not? I currently wire with Monster 12 guage, standard stuff.
