Was home today.. So i undertook a project i've been putting off for a while.
I had a Adcom 5400 (125wpc) bi wired to my front RT800i's.. I thought the sound was pretty good.
Today I changed it out for a NAD 2600A (150wpc). and did away with the bi wiring.
I could right away tell the difference in bass. The NAD pumps up the bass quite a bit more than the Adcom ever did. I listened to music and TV all day without the SVS even turned on. I know kinda weird. but I lived through it. The mids and highs did not seem to be affected... just the bass.
So two things.. did the change out in amps make the difference or was it going from a bi wire run to a single run make the difference? I'm hoping the NAD amp was the cause... and not the wires.
Either way.. i'm happy with the results. This is not meant to be scientific or anything. It's just that different brands of amps can have a postive (or negative) affect on your speakers too. Your results may vary.
*No speakers were harmed in this demo test. :p
