With your other speakers, I would probably stick with the nautilus line. I have mixed the N805 and S805 in my HT and there is a timbre change between the two.

Thanks guys! I think I will choose N804s in accord with your suggestions. Krell1, how did you disperse low frequency sounds between your N802s and SW? Does all low frequency sound go to SW or have you divided them between your N802s and SW? What sounds the best to you when listening to multichannel music?
I crossover the ASW800's at 40Hz and run both from the RCA outputs of my Krell AVS. I can do this because I use all 7 balanced outputs to the amps. I don't want to confuse things and it may sound crazy but I also run a center ASW800 with my HTM1 and you wouldn't beleive what low frequencies comes from the center channel. I select the center full range setting on the AVS and it's as close as I can get to identical front speakers. The ultimate is 5 identical speakers such as the Skywalker studio with 5 N802's and is how films are mixed. I use a front and rear Bag End Infra subs as the LFE channel. Don't forget the basic room treatments though because they are just as important. Everything in my size rooom sounds very real for either two or multi channel listening and my family begs for movies all the time.
