I bought the NR1602 to use for home theater. I then received a set of B&W CM5's. Only use 2 channels and would like to get more performance out of the set. Considering adding a MM7025 2-channel amp or a 2-channel integrated PM8004 amp (same price). Sticking with Marantz - get wholesale discount. open to used if better value/performance.
I have ps3, apple tv and dvr connected. I also have a sub connected through the nr1602 pre-outs (which I'd use for the additional amp). What do you recommend to get best sound from CM5's? Pros? Cons? Should I also add a DAC between Apple TV and the nr1602?
I'm a noob so appreciate all advice.
