Salutations... and a cry for help!
Like some others in this area, I am new to the site and also new to the world of hi-fi (beyond the plugging in of an all-in-one system at least).
I am in the process of putting together my first hi fi, which currently consists of the following:
Denon CD player (DCD520AE)
Denon Amplifier (PMA720AE)
Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 speakers (2 of)
2 x 2.5mm multistrand 432 loudspeaker cable, 14 AWG
Further down the line, I will be adding a subwoofer (more than likely a Wharfedale Diamond 10MX), but due to the size of the room, I won't be adding another pair of speakers.
My knowledge of all things to do with sonics, wiring, ohms, impedence etc is limited, to put it VERY mildly, but I do need to put my mind at ease on the minefield that appears to be bi-amping.
I have read a little about bi-wiring and bi-amping, and due to the technical nature of the advice and the conflicting opinions on what each can achieve, I'm struggling. I currently have the speakers wired in to the amplifier using the bottom row of the amp (row A, as shown here: http://www.audiogamma.it/caricamenti/gallery_prodotti/PMA-720ae_01.jpg ) going to the bottom two connections on the speakers (shown here: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-PKmYMl2R69Q/TgchD07NDMI/AAAAAAAAAcc/FQZbIunSvD... ), red to red, black to black.
Knowing that I won't be using the top set of speaker-outs on the amp (row B) for a second pair of speakers, would I see a benfit to using that row to connect to the top pair of connections on the speakers? Is this bi-amping (as I understand from one source which suggests a second 'channel' used to one speaker is to 'bi-amp') or am I bi-wiring if I do this?
I have the speaker cable, so there is no additional cost as such, but I don't want to risk any damage to the equipment, not mess around for the sake of no difference.
Can anyone here please help me? Sorry this is long winded, I've just read so much on this and without the slightest bit of technical knowledge it's VERY hard to understand what I'm doing.
Thanks in advance,
