I can't speak for the Salon 2 but biamping and biwiring did increase the resolution and my enjoyment of the first Salons.

I just purchased a pair of Studio 2's. With my speaker wire if I use the upper, "HF", binding posts I cannot get the door to shut and lock. The door has a lip on the inside. With the lip, there simply isn't enough room for the wires to fit inside the depression, below the lower binding posts, allowing the door to shut.
I took the doors off which appears to be one solution. The other is to cut off the center portion of lip that interferes with the wires. With this design using banana plugs would appear impossible, as would bi-wiring unless one used very thin wire.
I was wondering what you other owners are doing?
I agree, using banana plugs with the door closed seems impossible with these speakers. That was very annoying, because my preferred connector is a locking banana. It sounds like your problem with the upper binding posts is that you are using a thick or inflexible speaker cable. If you want the door to close and you want to biwire you must use a very flexible wire, like zipcord (which I use). If you must use a high-end speaker cable you must open/remove the door, or just use a single wire.
