The reason to start this thread is like to know watz the most popular source, preamp and power do the 802/802D owner use to drive this amazing speaker.


I love this speaker. This is my main speaker for my home theater and stereo purpose.


My 802 driven by 2 tubes monoblocks of ManleyLabs 250W. Using Lexicon MC12 as the pre amp and Marantz S7MKII SACD/CD player.


The vocal and music produce by MANLEYLABS is AMAZING!!!!

Most popular is probably Classe all around but I wouldn't scoff at your Manleys!

Krell 400cx powers my 802D's. You really need a class-A design (as opposed to Classe) amp to drive B&W 800 series speakers to their full potential or their "magic" point.

Thank you all for the comments.... seems like Classe power is the most popular combination for B&W800 series....
