Default why no Aleph 2 DIY w/ bi-wire?

A simple question: Commerical Aleph 2 is bi-wired. Why no DIY has made it into bi-wire version? (at least I haven't seen one!)

Thomas,

I suppose you mean it has two pairs of output connectors? This is not really what I would call biwired as they are just connected to each other inside the case and help people who have speakers that can be biwired.

If your speakers donīt have this facility thereīs no need to put two pairs of output connectors on the back of your amp.


William

P.S. some speakers can be tri-wired........

most speakers can be bi-amped/bi-wired.

using two different cables, one for highs, one for lows, can help out. its benefitial, but if you bi-amp with two amps, you cant really bi-wire.

some speakers are actually quad-ampable

Is is like this? (in the photo)

Does this make the sound better, if I have a bi-wired speaker?

Thanks,

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

yes like that, although - is normally connected directly to the caps (if the amp is not bridged)

I donīt think there will be a difference if you connect your (biwired) speaker to four or two outputs.

Biwiring does make a difference although Iīm happy that my speakers donīt offer this facility
