I currently own a ref 20 plus processor and an 5000i amplifier from B&K. I realize the amplifier isn't the perfect amp but I could live with it if it actually worked. I sent it into B&K and the fixed the two channels that were out. Well actually they did not do that. Only one channel was fixed for right out of the box a channel was out. We will now be without home theater again. I am unimpressed with the reliability of this unit. I have had many amplifiers in my life but none that were as unreliable as this. What is the reliability of the above pieces and the sonic comparisons. I am thinking of buying a new amplifier and then eventually a processor. I have heard the rotel duo sound excellent with B&K 805's and NHT 1.4"s. We have paradigm reference speakers in our theater. Is one really a better match for them than the other?
