I had B&W 802 III with the 300i and 250cd and it was great. If you are looking at the latest B&W's, I would consider the CDM-9NT or 805N with possibly a sub later.

I was using an the 300i on a pair of 805 matrix's for awhile and it was wonderful. Then I purchsed a pair of 802 III's and the little Krell just didn't have enough guts. The 802 matrix's are really power hungry. It was replaced by a Proceed HPA and its a real sweet combination. The 300i for now powers my 805 surrounds for home theatre
Hello, Good job picking out the proper cable for the krell gear. I would say you should buy a pair of N805 there is a pair on agon now for 1,400 or best offer and then you would have 600 to buy a used sub of some sort. Thats the way I would go. The new series b&w sound better with the krell than the old 800 series. I still love the old 800 series. I had all but the 801s. I have N803s and they are superb. Remeber n805s with a sub sound much better than a pair of n804s. Good Luck
don't waste your money on the N805's, unless all you care abut is HT. If you're into the music, you need at least the N804's, which are superb. the 805's are really just monitors, not "full range". to step up in anything better is going to cost much more. the bw9nt is ok, but not as good as the 804.
