802d for a 10x13 room, 8ft ceiling - am I nuts?
My room dimensions are similar to yours (10x12). I'mcurrently running a pair of B&W Sig 805's and theyprovided enough of a challenge to sort out. I reallythink you'll be much happier with either the new 804Dor even the 805D with a sub. Good luck 
McCormack DNA 500 vs DNA 225 upgraded
It was my understanding that all the mods that wentinto the DNA 225 Mods are standard in the DNA 500. Giventhe price difference between the two stock amps that's notsurprising. I would email Steve McCormack andask his advice.I did own a DNA 500 fo...

Subwoofer reccomendations for B&W 805S?
I think the responses here are all good suggestions. I'musing a Velodyne DD-10 with my Signature 805's. They workpretty well together in my 10x12 room. For what its worthmy friend has a DD-12 which I think would be too muchfor a room of my size. T...

CD player recommendations under $2K used
Another option to consider is the Modwright Sony 999ES Platinum version. I would make sure it has the tube rectified power supply though. It makes a huge difference. Theirs one for sale on here for for ~$1500. Good luck 
B&W 803S Speakers
I currently have the Signature 805s' in room with similardimensions. I'm sure the 803's are fine speakers but they could be too much for your room. I'm using a VelodyneDD-10 with my Sig 805's and they work well together. The805's have decent bass ...

When I had my DNA500 I tried a bunch of different cords.The one that I preferred the most was the Purist AudioDominus (Ferox). It seemed to be nice compromise betweena Shunyata Python Alpha and my Elrod EPS Signature 3.Another cord I would suggest...

Best Subwoofer for B&W 805s Speakers
I've been using a Velodyne DD-10 with my 805's fora couple of years now. I'm pretty happy with it and the built in room correction software is nice to have. I think the 805's have great bass. Very tight and definedbut they lack depth. A quality su... 
McCormack DNA-500
I'm not sure I would call the DNA 500 warm sounding butits not cold or clinical sounding either. I really enjoyedmine. It had great control and still sounded musical. Ifound the 500 to be very responsive to power cords. Everycord I tried made a di... 
Nautilus 805 and signature 805 tweeter
The Sig 805 is quite a bit different than the N805. It usesnew drivers as well as a different crossover. I thinkthe enclosure was changed as well. I can't comment on theN805 but I currently own the Signature 805's. They arepretty revealing of down...
