    There is no reason why they shouldn't work well together. The Denon is a highly rated amp and the same goes for the MA speakers.

    I like the speakers but you should have a listen just to make sure that they are to your taste preferably comparing them to something else at a comparative price.

    i tried loads of different speakers , and i do mean loads, with my 3802.

    i had been using the MA baby package with their sub and a sony 940 amp.

    when i upgraded i had a budget of £2k for amp and speakers maybe a little more if necessary ;)

    any way i tried everything KEF, B&W, MISSION, CASTLE, MIRAGE to name a few.

    but none of them seemed as easy to listen to as my MA's were on the 3802,i had them all over xmas while i was trying to upgrade, i tried the silver florstanders with 3i's on the rear and silver centre.
    and really liked it.

    then i tried the 3i's on the front and actually prefered this combination.

    at the momement i have silvers across the front and 2 pairs of the baby MA's for the rear channels.

    with the view that i will put their dipoles on the rear soon.

    obviously it is personal taste and you may not like what you hear, so still demo them, but i havent been diapointed.

    the only others that i would have bought was the M&K package but this was out of my price range.

    I guess I should give my opinion!!

    As you can see below I have this set up. At the beginning I found it very good with movies ( I don't have a sub) and OK with music. I have been playing with various inter connects and speaker cable to improve the music side and am now happy with it but it took a while. What I can't say is whether that was due to the source I use or the amp/speaker set up.

    I would recommend the package but you have to pay attention to make sure that all the parts work well together.


    Hope this helps.

    yeah i have to say that i changed my cable to audioquest.
    solid core rather than a stranded cable.

    alot smoother, this is somthing to bear in mind budget wise.
