Hi All!

 

What a dilemma! Which pair would you advice me to get? I will be using a Marantz AV 8801 in my living room (25 square meters). Any thoughts, pros, cons?

The AV8801 is just a pre-amp/processor. You're going to need an amplifier as well...

You're right. That would be my old Marantz 3300 pre.

Color me confused, but isn't this also a pre-amp??

I am running a pair of hand made speakers (12"bass + 8" mid + super tweeter) directly from the Marantz 3300 so I thought I could run these new speakers though the AV8801...as you can see, I am a bit of a fresher on this, so any advice for amplifiers is also welcome.

From what I have read the Marantz doesn't have any power
Amps, I could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time.

Where are you located....makes a difference as to what is available
To you.

Are you going to use just two speakers or are you going to add more??

I am partial to Paradigm speakers...I owned a pair of the Monitor 11v5
Great speakers.

If you go with a Marantz amplifier, they have the MM8077 which is 150x7, the MM7055 which is 140x5, and the MM7025 a 2-channel amp. Are you going with a full speaker set up of either the Focal or the Paradigm?
