i want to try this instead
in addition to my setup above
i want to add a very good monoblock to the centre speaker to enhance it greatly
i will be using my marantz as main amp
then i will use the music fidelity m3i and crown 102
for the high and low frequncies then to the marantz
to my dali speakers
will connect my blue node2 to the amplifier
my question is i have enhanced my two front speakers but i want to enhance my centre speakers as
well the dali zenor vokal centre
what do you recommend as a monoblock for the centre
same as youve got
or something else you would recommend
i am using dali instead of the kefs you use to take into consideration
also i want to enhance the audio quality of the sony ux800 4k player
by using a arcam ir dac to enhance the 2 channel music of the sony ux800
can all this all be wired up to the marantz amp

|I have an NAD C275BEE (used in stereo mode). Very nice moderate power amp. Not sure what wattage you need.|

if you want CHEAP... get a used parasound Z amp and bridge it for 90w. they can be had for as little as $100 on ebay, or you could buy a new one for $300. don't ask me how fools are trying to sell them for $420.

|Particularly if the said 4 ohm nominal hit 3 or 2 ohms in places.|

His speaker is nominally 6Ω but since it features twin woofers they could be 8Ω in parallel with a 6 or 8Ω tweeter.
Without seeing the actual impedance curve I'd advise against a bridged amp.
Even if it is just to be on the safe side.

|I use a Crown XLS amp for center and passive sub. I have had excellent results. Bridgeable if necessary. Cost effective. Powerful. Good detail. Low noise floor. Non-fatiguing. Professionals use them.|
