Don't sell yourself short... there is no foolproof method in amp/speaker synergy! IMO the 803D is probably the best $$$/performance B&W model, although I have not heard the CM10. The Luxman 505ux IMO would fall short in power/current and resolution with the 803D. A great bargain amp to try would be a Proceed HPA-2. $1500 should be enough to find one in top condition. Even when mated with a very modest preamp this combo would easily better the entry level Luxman.
