Best used amp for Nautilius 804's under $1,800?
Finally bought some 804's and need an amp that will do them justice. Have considered the classic B&W/Classe combination with a CA-200, but also hear some good things about Bryston 4BST with the 804's. Have even looked into some older Levinson gear, like the 23 (would 100/ch watts be sufficient?) or 27.5, but don't know that buying something that old is a good idea.
The system will be used for 2 channel and HT in a room that is about 18'x 18' with 8' ceilings. Music is jazz, classical, soft rock and some acoustical/voice (wide spectrum). Associated equipment currently includes B&K Reference 30 and a Denon DVD-3800. IC's are Audioquest Coral and speaker cable is Monster Z1 reference. Plan to add a dedicated CD as the primary 2-channel source, probably an Arcam FMJ 23. Don’t want to use a 5-channel HT amp since I’ll be doing 4.1 instead (one stereo amp for the fronts and another for the surrounds, let the 804’s fill in the middle) and want to focus on a quality 2-chanel amp for now.
Any thoughts or opinions you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
