I am thinking of upgrading my system. Room size is 15 x 15 x 8. Home theater for 60% and music 40%. Plan to use B&W 805d as LCR and CCM 818 in ceiling as surrounds. Considering Marantz Av 8801 as preamp.

Need recommendation for 7 channel amp.

Possibilities include:

McIntosh MC207 for $6000 for 7 channel amp

Halo A3.1 for LCR at $3000 and a5.2 for surround channels for $2000.

Alternatively I could go Marantz MM 8077 at a cost of $2400 for 7 channels.

Other mfgrs such as Emotiva, Wyred 4 sound, and Outlaw are other lower priced possibilities.

When listening at loud levels will I notice a difference in these brands.
