I auditioned the Forest in a similar-sized room with Sim electronics and thought they were a good match. With a 5080 you won't chip paint, but in a nearfield setup it will get the job done. Definitely not a warm, liquid or euphonic sound, but if you like resolution and transient snap you'll be on your way with that setup. I have read show reports where Totem and Sim are used together. Sim rooms have also featured Gershmann speakers, too, since we are talking about all Canadian systems here. And the Totems will love any later upgrades, as they are quite good and they do love power, as you say.
