I posted this in the speakers forum by accident I think it belongs in elcetronics....if anybody has some words of help that'd be great thanks...
I plan on going to listen to some amps at the store.
I have Lsi15's on the way but they don't have them at the stereo store I am going to. (I hope they don't get shipping damage by DHL from Frys).
Anyway I was hoping they would let me check out a Rotel 1075 and 1095 with my speakers at my house for a couple of hours but I seriously doubt it.
Question: For 2 channel, can I take the 1075 (120 wpc @ 8 ohms x 5) and take two channels and dedicate them to one speaker via biamping and get close to the performance of the 1095 (200 wpc @ 8 ohms x 5) ??
I will get a matching prepro for the amp and was hoping to save the $1000 diff in the 1075 and 1095 to go toward that. I understand from a previous post that the biamp on the LSi 15's only separates the tweeter. True?
I don't really know what bridging is but can you bridge a 5 ch amp to put more power to one channel?
I watch a movie at home once in a blue moon and when I do I could just reconnect for 5.1. A pain probably but I'm blamestorming to come up w/ ideas to save $$.
