    Im on the lookout for a suitable power amp, to bi-amp my Kef Q35.2's along with my 8r.

    Should I be looking at a 7, 8 or 9P for best compatibility?

    Thanks all. :thumbsup:

    Well I have used an 8R & 8P to biamp my B&W 603's in the past and the sound was excellent IMO.
    The 8P is obviously the matched power amp to the 8R integrated so should be the best match.

    Mark.

    I agree with the above. I have the 8R and have the 8P connected to it and it sounds great.

    Hi Bonzodogdick

    I have Alpha 8R and 8P which I used with my Monitor Audio Silver 5i's and found that adding the 8P brought a subtle but worthwhile inprovement to the bass performance. Not sure how much diffrence using another manufacuturer's power amp would make - I didn't try that but I bought the 8P as the obvious choice.

    I have since replaced my amps with an AVR300 used in biamped mode so am about to sell the alphas. (Would be looking for £150 + postage for the 8P if you're interested).
