I have the 801 III with the North Creek's and I feel it will get you as close to the Nautilus without breaking the bank. Before the Nautilus it was the only way to get past the weakest link. It was fairly simple to install and will take a couple hundred hours to break in. The bass was not quite as deep at first for me, but the mids and treble really open up and are more musical. I still like my Matrix III's w/North Creek's compared to the Nautilus. The crossover was their weak link considering it weighs less than a pound and has sand cast resistiors, etc. The north Creek's are a quality component and essential in getting the most out Matrix series and knowing it's potential. If you go for them, I would bet you won't go back. As you already know they will require great front end components.
