I've recently bought a second hand Arcam AV50 amplifier and would like advice on how to combine it with my existing Arcam P85 and A85 power and integrated amps in a 3.1 arrangement.
I have a pair of B&W 685 stereo speakers and a B&W CMC centre, so was hoping to have the centre speaker connected to the AV amp and the 685s speakers bi-amped with the P85 (to woofers) and A85 (to tweeters). This would mean that my 685s can be used for music.
It doesn't seem to be so straighforward to do this. Do I have to setup my A85 to be a power amp? This means that I will have to flick a switch at the back when I want to change from movies to music.
