Hi, I currently have a build going on of a BiAmping box and need a little help. It's basically four separate power amps in one conventional-size enclosure with nice big heat-sinks. It also has: - Separate regulated power supplies for L & R - Speaker DC offset protection for both tweeter and woofers - Soft start - no speaker thump Each power amp is about 100w and is of my own design, but is based on tried and tested long-tail-pair / three-stage architecture, solid-state drivers and is perfectly stable and not prone to oscillation. Very good damping factor etc. DC offset is tuneable down to a few millivolts. I would love to buddy up with someone who owns or has built a speaker setup with an active crossover in it; two-way prefereably, but I wouldn't rule out trying a tri-amping setup at some stage. I would like to bring this to Kegworth either this or next year, so if this sounds up anyone's street or you know anyone who would like to get involved with something like this, then let me know. I'm based in North-Surrey / South-London, if that helps. Thanks all, NAP.
Hi folks I’m looking for some advice with my second system, it presently is: Linn Sneaky DS > Linn Silver > Linn LK85 > Chord Odyssey 2 (factory cable using Russ Andrews Bananna to BFA adaptors and Chord Signature Jumpers) > Mordaunt Short MS812’s I’m presently running this system with the power amp of the Sneaky DS disabled and the LK85 doing all the amplification. I’ve gained a suitable length of Linn K400, now suitably terminated 4:4, and have the option to either bi-wire from the LK85’s multiple outputs OR Bi-Amp with the Sneaky DS and the LK85. Likely with the Sneaky DS doing the tweeters and the LK85 doing the woofers. Either way the K400 will significantly reduce the number of connections. I preferred K400 to the Cord Oddyssey when I swapped it out of my main system some years ago. I later passive bi-amped my main system on my route to Activ and liked the results with this also Access is limited to the rear of the second system, so A/B testing would be difficult. So, a few questions: is bi-amping with a Sneaky DS and LK85 possible? Correct gains? any likely issues with the power miss-match? if bi-amping, how would you assign amps. I assumed the less powerful amp to the tweeters. Though the room is relatively small and it is only used at low to moderate volumes. So, clarity is more important than presence Thank you for your thoughts. Richard
