Try biamp the speaker. BW 801 really sings when biamped.

I have the Sound Anchor stands on order right now. I explored the Northcreeks a few weeks ago, but frankly, I was unsure about investing that much in these speakers. I wondered whether I should invest heavily in the 801's or look at putting that money in new speakers. That was part of the motivation for the post. Without a high end audio store around me, it's impossible for me to audition new components. Would you invest $2500 in the NorthCreek Xovers, and would I hear that much difference in the sound? Thanks for the responses and the advice.
B&W bought Classe to provide "companion" electronics for their speakers. Now, I mention that as a starting point. I suggest a slush fund to begin purchasing and listening to equipment that you can "turnover" without suffering to much of a loss until you find that something that meets your criteria. Let your ears decide. Just a thought. Good luck.
