Bi-wiring question

Hello there,

I just got my very humble Cambridge Audio Topaz SR10 Stereo Receiver and a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 230. Both have bi-wiring capabilities.

Reading various opinion, most of people seem to suggest that some systems can benefit from bi-wiring.

The speaker cable I use is a cheap Monoprice 102820 Access Series 14 Gauge AWG CL2 Rated.

Can someone tell me if my current setup will benefit from bi-wiring?

Thanks!

It is doubtful that it will

It is doubtful that it will make any difference but, for the price of the wire, you can resolve the question conclusively.

Thank you. It isn't so much

Thank you. It isn't so much the price of the wire, more the pain of feeding it behind my furniture....

An update on bi-wiring:

An update on bi-wiring:
The sound on my most humble of imaginable systems was good- but only most of the time. Occasionally, it would simply turn awful. For the longest time I couldn't figure out why- then I realized that the culprit was the damn awful metal strapping that connected bi-wiring terminals at the back of my speakers. There was simply no good way of keeping them from shifting.

I bi-wired and now I have the sound I wanted to have from my very modest setup.

Alas, I will never be able to tell whether or not the sound was improved due to bi-wiring or just due to getting rid of those dreadful metal straps.
