    Vertical bi-amping,
    sounds absolutely great
    but I can't think how to set it up (setting up connections I mean)

    I bet in two years. You won't be bi or tri amping or even bi wiring. But have fun giving it a go!

    I've never tried bi-amping myself, but a friend of mine uses (passive) horizontal bi-amping with some Spendor speakers (I forget the model) which have provision for bi-wiring, and he is convinced of the advantage. Since I haven't heard his speakers fed by a single amp, I can't comment.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Pretty simple. Buy some phono Y splitters and plug them into the phono outs of your source. Take the (now twin) L feed from each source to the relevant input of one amp. Take the R to the other. The speaker outputs on each amp are now used for each side's woofer and tweeter. You will then have a left and right volume control. A few amps and preamps come this way anyway and it a neat way to set balance if you need it, because you are controlling L and R volume separately. If you want the same level on each channel, just set the volume of each to the same point.

    monoblocks, or amps you can monoblock are probably a better idea

    I first bi-amped using a high quality vintage Onkyo Integra 624 combined power-amp/crossover.



    Wasn't too keen, tried other combos since, still not keen.

    You can always make up your own 2-4 phono cables or have them made up. Y splitters are a very cheap and easy way to try it in the first place and I doubt it would offer any serious limitations. I've used the Mayware/Russ Andrews Din-phono adapters with Naim CD players many times and had no complaints. A Y splitter is just another adapter.
