    Sunbyrne - agree that the SUT isn't a solution for him and his current equipment. Just answering his question as to what it does.

    By the way, you're correct in that the TT already has a preamp (you can either use the TT preamp or flip a switch to use an outboard preamp).

    I think it’s possible to have 2 sets of binding posts on the Sierra Towers. Try asking Dave to see if he’d be able to include 2 sets.
    Current Setup:

    Ascend Acoustics Sierra-2 Front LR
    Emotiva DC-1 XLR DAC
    Emotiva 2 PA-1 XLR Mono Block Amplifiers
    PS Audio P3 Power Plant AC Regenerator


    Future Upgrades:

    Ascend Acoustics Sierra Horizon NrT Front LR vertically oriented
    PS Audio Stellar GainCell XLR DAC

    I believe this would require changes to the crossover, not exactly sure what those changes are, but it's definitely more complicated than just including an additional set of binding posts.

    Dave may or may not have already considered this. Either way, true bi-amping has to be implemented correctly or it can make things worse.

    Yes, while we don't advertise it - we can assemble the speakers to have bi-wire inputs. There are additional fees to this and we have done this for about a dozen customers over the years.
