Bridge or Single ch to bi-amp Center channel B&W HTM3S
Does the Adcom amp youve chosen have gain controls on each pair of channels ? Or do you have the ability to adjust each channels gain via your pre pro or straight preamp ? If not you will most likely end up with a bloated sound at 1 extreme which ...
