Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

RE: I don't know anyone vertical biamping but

I was thinking the Y connector was female RCA and you needed an additional RCA from IT to the amp.
If the Y had male outs, and was long enough (still not very) the connection number would than be 3.
Some would, at that point, begin objecting to whatever cable and connectors were used in its construction.
I'm not on that particular list.
But, for those who ARE concerned? I'd figure DIY should answer most objections.

The Parasound approach is simply Cleaner and entails no additional expense. My original plan with a pair of 'em in biamp mode was to eventually go to an active crossover. At that point? The MiniDSP would act as such and I'd be back to multiple longer cable runs, unless I were to run ONE crossover in back of each speaker and continue with a single run to each as now.

The least expensive Y connectors go 5$ or maybe 10$, you'll need 2. I don't know how much such a connnector would run if you went to all-Cardas material. A lot more, for sure. Some would probably NOT want the cheapest Y based on listening experience.

For more biamp stuff, look at my 'Noodle' thread with the block diagram of a proposed amp, using a pair of nCore400 modules and SMPS. The included MiniDSP makes it easy for to use a a biamp. All the splitting is 'internal' to the amp and it would be adjusted by connection to a computer. I've already spec'd internal balanced cable as Mogami.
Too much is never enough
