    N802's N805's, HTM1. Opinions on what would work best.

    The first options is get the CAV-180 5 ch amp.

    The second option is the CAV-75 for the center and surrounds (bridged for 150W each) and then something like CA-201 or 301 for the mains.

    Then I need to decide which pre/pro.

    The second option is get the 49TX and then get the CA-201 or 301 for the mains. This would ofcourse leave the center and surrounds with the 49TX.

    I can't imagine running Nautilus speakers with anything but premium power. For the N802s, the more (quality) power, the better. CAV-75 with the CA-301 for the mains would bring you the best performance, albeit a hefty bite out of your wallet.

    I am running Nautilus 804/805/HTM2 with CAV150. The sound is excellent, and the Classe mates very well with the B&Ws taming some of the highs that can turn tinny with bad recordings. Your plan for the CAV-75 bridged and the CA-201/301 sounds to be the most ideal of those listed. Have you considered a CAV-500 instead as a one piece solution? The CAV-180 alone would also probably be a very good choice, but a CAV500 would probably be more ideal for 802s.
