Would I be blown away? Would be driving them with an Anthem MCA 325 and Integra 70.4
Should I do it? anyone have an info advice on what I should do? Is that a fair price? condition 7/10. Plus i have to drive 3 hours to get them.
Any comments advice is greatly appreciated in advanced!
Yes they are 17 years old but that is a decent price. I would not sell mine for that price. I have the 802's HTM1 and 805"s (4) and I LOVE them. Not as good as 802D3's of course but I don't want to spend $40K upgrading all the speakers.
I have gone to Magnolia and listened to the 700 series and they are real nice but for me I love the warm sound of the 802 Nautalis.
Hope mine last another 10 years. Driving mine with a Mackintosh amp and Marantz 8802a.
