    I am looking at the marantz 9000, the parasound 2803 , anthem mca 3 or 5 and the adcom 5503. They are all in the 700-850 price range, will be paired with denon 3803 and driving B&W matrix 803 speakers in home theater set up. Does anyonehave any opinions especially what would work well with B&W's. Thanks

    I'm a big fan of Adcom amps. I have an Adcom GFA-555 II and Adcom GFA-2535. Their quality on a dollar per watt basis they is hard to beat. Even more so, if you can pick them up on ebay or audiogon.

    The GFA-555 II drives my left and right, and GFA-2535 powers my center and surrounds.

    I've had the GFA-555 II since 1990, it's been used every day, and even survived my college party days driving tower speakers.
