yes it can AFAIK, but check out the amp and receiver forum for more detailed info, if you wish...
Personally I'd get the EP35 and 805, but it's not up to me!! or save some money and get a EP30 instead to go with the 2700...
What will the EP35 give you over the EP30 if you get a 2700??
AT lest you would die with a good quality amp in your setup
So true... and that's a great amp for the money IMHO too
Just make sure the wife never sees the size of the box, or feels the weight of the 805 or you'll be a gonna get it hidden away in your rack, and wait till she comments on the improvements before you mention it
Your wife says she spends that kind of money on curtains!! and you believe her!!
Have you checked her wardrobe recently
She wants to spend it on part payment for this years hols for the family... I've just bought an ep35 and she did raise her eyebrows somewhat - another £700 will surely tip her over the edge
Anyway, just spent £45 on Mark grant cables for the 5.1 out into my pioneer 2011 so new amp will have to wait, unless there is a better price on the 805!
As a substitute of yam 2700, I don't see any such problem with 705 either. Top of that you can save another 100 quid, to make her less yell at you
IMHO, I wouldn't go for the 705 when the 805 is available at that price. For the OP here is a link to a comparison spec sheet between the Onkyo amps.
For the £100 difference the main differences are:
- The 805 weighs 23.3kg as opposed to the 705's 11.5kg
- The 805 is THX ULTRA2 Certified
- Better quality amplification
Agreed, and like wise the price AV sales have the 805 for, it seems harder to justify the 875 instead... the 805 at that price seems a steal! Albeit without the video features of the 875/reon
Does it make any difference in sound?The 805 weighs 23.3kg as opposed to the 705's 11.5kg
That really doesn't matter if your room environment is not THX certified, even if you have THX certified speakers.The 805 is THX ULTRA2 Certified
This is could be a good point but the question is how much good it is? I think 805 got a better processor, isn't it?Better quality amplification

I ask the same question about the processor in the 805 and the sound difference between the 705 ..that was from the people that know ...they had them setup so they can make comparisons i chose the former
