    Hello,

    I have 4 BW Nautlus 803 and 1 HTM1, in a traditionnal passive biamp (I keep the speakers 'crossover)) can I get a better solution than an high end multichannel amp (classe, EAD, THeta) for a similar budget (let's say up to 1000 $ more) ?

    For example if I take 5 Rotel RB1080 will it be better than a single CAV-180...I don't think so and you ? Other amplifiers ?

    My problem :


    5 * Quality_Stereo_amp > =Quality_High_end_multichannel_amp

    5 * Price_Stereo_amp

    Although you might not think of CineNova as a "high end" amp it is the equivalent of any SS amp out there and many times better than most.
    .003% distortion that goes "down" as the power goes UP!
    A friend and I just bought a 3 and a 5 channel (he loves his 3) I can't fit the 5 into my space (it is well over 100 pounds)
    Brand new still sealed - see Hardware link below

    you might wanna check into some of the older aragon line of amps. they can be had at incredible savings...many less than half their original msrp. check out audiogon and the occasional ubid auctions. good luck. btw...4 b&w 803's!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
