Presently I have B&K AV5000 5x105 WPC into 8ohms amp (5.1 configuratiuon). The FL and FR are bi-amped and powered by B&K. The centre is hooked up to the remaining channel on the B&K amp. Surrounds are powered by Denon 3806 pre/pro.
I have Parasound HCA 1500A amp 2x205 WPC into 8ohms coming soon. Bought this amp to drive my fronts. My question is, how to connect the B&K to the rest of my system:
1. Would you bi-amp the surrounds and use the spare channel to power the centre?
2. Would you bi-amp the centre channel and power the surrounds with rest of the B&K channels (1 channel would be unused)?
3. Would you not bi-amp at all and connect centre and surround straight into the B&K amp (2 channels would be unused)?
Note: I can't use 6.1 configuration as there is a wall behind my listening area.
Any suggestions appreciated.
