    Does anyone have any of these speakers and if so what are your opinions of them? I currently have P4's L,R and rears and am looking to upgrade. Any opinions are greatly welcomed prior to demo'ing them.

    What amps do you have? The N802 need good amplification ... without it they'll sound flat and generally horrible.

    Oh and space too ... lots of space infact.

    I decided on Nautilus 805s after a lot of listening and thought on the subject,and would agree with both ReTro and vikki.....beautiful speakers,wonderful sound with a very extended bass,but they do need not only a very load tolerant and powerful amp(I use Krells) and they will also need a large room,with suitable freedom from resonances....audition very carefully in your own home and with the amps you intend to use.

    Make sure you give the N805 Sig a demo if you can at the same time.

    I'm using a Roxan Caspian 5 amp with a Merdian 568 processor, but I'm unsure if the outlay for the new speakers will be justified when compared to the P4's I'm currently using.
