Just replaced my 602 S3s with 805 Nautilus and HTM2. Couldn't be happier. Next up Blue Heaven and a better amp.

Anyone recommend a suitable amp. Will be running 602 S3s as my surrounds.

Nice!

I just replaced my 600 S3 with CM9 S2. Would like 805s, but it took a lot of work to get wife to agree on the CMs.

Messing around with the AV and stereo and surprisingly I found the 602's to be better balanced with the Arcams. Looks like I'm going to need an upgrade in the AV and cable front.



Also have this new stand on its way which will help tidy the display up.

I use a Parasound A52..5 channel amp from a couple of years ago..rated at 125 time 5.Highly rated and can be found used on Audiogon .My 805 signatures sound beautiful and now I am messing with some Harbeth P3ESR's. The A52 brings out the best of these speakers.The new A51 is very costly at over 4G's and puts out 250 per channel.

I am thinking of going back to a two channel since I rarely use my HT anymore so I might be selling mine. It's 4 years old in silver and I have all the boxes. Bought it from Audio Advisor. It Has balanced xlr inputs also.

The A52 is strictly a power amp. It has no pre-amp and it's not an AVR.

Thanks for the feedback. Had not considered the whole power amp/pre amp set up as always ran integrated. Maybe that is the solution. On a positive note I have just purchased some Blue Heaven.

Wait, so the onkyo 605 powers your 805N speakers and then the arcam integrated powers your 602s?

That's interesting cause I would think the 805s would be more musical and also I would think that they'd require a better receiver then the 605 to push them.

That is the current set up. The 605 was previously powering the 602s. The plan is now to replace the 605. I now use the spare 602s for music as they are better balanced with the Arcam.

So what are you plans to power the 805Ns with?

I liked the 804S with the NAD787 AVR. I actually like it better then the 802D with McIntosh separates. If you can believe that.

Something similar to the NAD would be Marantz, maybe the 7009... Or whatever the current unit is.

Still investigating but the Marantz pre/power combo is certainly an option. My mate thinks the 805s are wasted on surround and should be used for stereo.

I think id agree with your buddy that the 805Ns would be better for stereo. I heard the PM1s which I was told was pretty close to the 805s. I thought they were pretty good in stereo.

Give us pics of what you decide to do. We love pics!
