to control floorstanders i think i would not go to the yamaha or the marantz.rotel might be nice or even CA 650A , pioneer might also make an interesting sound but do not expect deep bass with the pioneer or the CA
Thanks! The lack of deep bass is not acceptable, so guess the Pioneer falls out of my list. Why do you think Yamaha couldn`t be able to feed/control the floorstanders? I`ve read only good reviews about A-S500.
I use marantz 6002 amp with jamo C405. well i find that they gel well, only bass could be deeper ( not to say it isn't deep enough) if one could use a higher watts amplifier than what a 6002 could afford ( 45wpc) - For C407 i would definitely recommend marantz but with a little more power to shake the woofer. I am advised by a forum member that marantz scores over S-500 for musical nature so therefore recommend marantz over a yamaha.
