I'm about to purchase the DENON AVR-4311CI.
I'm thinking about using it to biamp my front speakers. I don't have a subwoofer, but my front speakers are VMPS Super a/R's. They have a 15" PR and a 15" and 12" woofer each. The woofers can accept a seperate input for biamping. I then have a center speaker and two rear speakers (normal directional).
1. Will biamping in this way be compatable with the varioius Audyssey technologies? In other words will using the extra amps normally meant for height or width channels fool any of the Audyssey technologies incorrectly?
2. What is the proper direction to mount the rear speakers. They are conventional small bookshelf speakers. We sit on a couch against the back wall of the room. The speakers will be mounted directly laterally and about 3-4 feet higher to our ears. Should they face forward, towards our ears, or upwards, or...? What do you suggest?
3. The center and rear speakers are high quality small bookshelf one's with an 8" woofer and 1" dome tweeter. Are these small speakers enough to handle movie soundtracks at a moderately loud level such as 90dB? I originally purchased them when Dolby ProLogic was the rage, believe it or not. I don't intend to play any music through the surrounds.
