Upgradeitis has struck. Nurse Temptation has told me to bend over and has administered a full dose of "I want that!!" serum. Today was my first ever experience of hearing M&K speakers. Fatal mistake. I think I'm in love. Enough preamble. To cut a long story short: I'm swaying between the LCR-750 Mk2s and the 850s for front duties Yes, I'd prefer the 150s (who wouldn't), but they're more money than I can afford. For surrounds... I'm going to go for the K4 Tripoles: S150 again is a dream I can't finance, and even the S-55s are a little too much cash than can be scraped together... even then though, I thought the K4s were lovely. For here though... driving the M&Ks in demo was, yes, you guessed it, the monsterous AVC-A1. That too though is WAY beyond my price range, and I'm equally kidding myself/heading for poverty if I start considering separate processor/power-amp combos. However, knowing the M&K reputation for "give me power... MORE power", there's no way my current HK can handle it. As such, I'm looking for recommendations as to suitabile amps for around a grand (or less if possible?) that could handle the M&Ks' requirements. Shortlist so far: Onkyo TX-NR801E Yamaha RX-V2400 Denon AVR-3805 Are any/all of these up to the task? I was also looking at the "next one down" Denon, the 2805 - not quite as much beef, but again, a little less cash. Could the 2805 handle it? In comparing 2805 vs 3805, other than the power issue, the incremental features of the 3805 aren't that important to me. Help a lovesick fool out please Would particularly appreciate comments from any existing M&K owners. PS: OK, not an amp question, but same topic - the M&K Sub Prices just about made me have a heart attack. Any recommendations for a slightly more economical match?
