Hi everyone!
I have (maybe a dumb) question.
Is it possible to bridge a RA-970Bx integrated amplifier with a RB-970Bx amp and have them power a stereo setup.
I have been thinking about using the Bluesound N130 as a preamp/streamer.
And if possible - how do I wire it?

The speakers are gonna have the option to be bi-wired if that is important.

I think you have the option to use the 970BX as a preamp (as it has IIRC pre-outs). You can wire the Rotel power amp up to the speakers as normal (biwiring is a waste of time IMO) and thereafter link to the 970BX through normal interconnects.

Do I wire it through the record of in one of the integrated amps rca connections? So the not the "in" but the "record" rca connection.
