    Probably an easy one this.

    I have an Audiolab 8000SX with BFA speaker connections. I have been looking at an 8000S but it uses banana connections. Not a huge issue but it does mean that I can't easily switch between the bi-wiring and bi-amping quickly to check out the diffferences in sound.

    Does anyone know which is the later (and/or better) connection. Should I hold out for a BFA equipped 8000S.

    Thanks

    The 8000SX you have is one sold as old stock when Tag took over. They re fitted them with BFA connections. These are the only Audiolab amps that have them.

    I've got the same problem incidently, though I think if you terminate everything with spade connections you can get around this.

    You're right I did buy it from TAG. I guess I'll just have to get good at fitting the connectors to speaker wires to work aout which suits my speakers best

    Thanks

    I can't really imagine any reason that bi-wiring should sound better than bi-amping to be honest. The latter has good technical reasons for potentially sounding better, the former is rather more tenuous.
