Bi-amping Avantgarde Duo's

Has anyone tried bi-amping Avantgarde Duo's ? My gut feeling is it probably wouldn't be worthwhile but you never know? How about mixing solid state for bass and tube for the mid/tweeter horns?

Additionally, what are the audible differences with feeding a line level signal to the bass speaker unit compared to using the amplified output which I guess most of us use?

Whart is essentially correct.

Avantgardes have been criticized for the bass not blending well with the mid horn. Some of us know that can be pretty much a non-issue with careful voicing.

Using the line level input makes it all that much more difficult to get a satisfactory blend.
