I recently demoed the B&W 802D's powered by 2 Mcintosh 501 monoblocks. I loved the sound they gave but then when I demoed the 802D's in a theater environment powered by rotel monoblock amps I wasn't nearly as impressed. I'm wondering if maybe I was just really taken in with the Mcintosh amps and if anyone here has a full mcintosh set-up (speakers and amps) that might comment on which speakers other then Mac they considered. I was considering 7 of the XLS320 maybe with 3 MC501's across the front and 1 MC205 for the sides and rears since I need to mount the speakers under my screen and I can't accommodate floor standing speakers. And if anyone knows of any wall mountable speakers that go well with mac amps please feel free to comment.
