My 805 is still going strong. I was able to find one at a steal of a price when they changed over to the 806. I have Klipsch KLF-30 main speaker, a Klipsch KLF-C7 center channel, and Klipsch KS-525-TX surrounds.
The 805 drives them flawlessly. I recently upgraded to a Vizio P65-C1 TV, and I'm still working out the bugs when trying to watch Amazon Video through my 805 via a Sony Blu-Ray with Amazon Video built-in.
Getting the video up and running isn't a problem other than additional steps and remotes involved. But, any time I pause a video, or go to the next episode, I loss sound. I have to press the setup button on the receiver, and then exit setup, and the sound returns. Very weird anomaly.
Otherwise, the 805 has been solid in all respects. Added twin, thermostatically controlled fans to my cabinet (CoolerGuys). Never had a problem with heat buildup.
