Krell amps have plenty of juice and seem to like bi-wiring. When I bi-wired my B&W's and used both sets of binding posts, it seemed like the amp took better control of the speakers. Of course, B&W recommends bi-wiring, so your mileage may vary. I would definitely experiment if I were you. You won't hurt the amp.
Yes - the dual sets of output terminals are connected in
parallel to the SAME output transistors in the amp.
The dual sets of output terminals are for ease in bi-wiring.
Krell has made the bi-wiring easier for you. Not every
speaker cable is available as a bi-wire set with a single
pair of connectors at the amp end and a dual pair at the
If your favorite cables are not available in biwire - it's
often tricky trying to get two spade lugs on a single amp
terminal. Krell gives you a terminal for each spade.
You also have the flexibility to use different cable runs
for high and low frequency if you so desire.
Krell gives you a lot of flexibility for the cost of an
extra set of amp terminals.
