    i just purchased b&w nautilus 804's and an htm-1. i've read that many people have found classe to mate well with the nautilus line. what is everyone's opinion regarding using three ca-100 amps bridged for the front three channels. i don't have the cash right now for three cam-350's. is this setup going to do as well vs monoblocks vs using 2 ca-300's? thanks

    The 2 ca-300's are in a totally different class than using 3 ca-100's. If the price is the same go with the ca-300's. Also bridging can introduce noise/hum and other issues if the amp is not properly designed and also reduces the ability to drive low impedance loads.

    I'm not sure about the 804 but I know the 803 has a relatively difficult impedance curve, so I would not recommend using a bridged amp for the 803.
