RE: Help With Amplifier Selection

Lots of good advice here. I have not heard that exact amp/speaker pairing but I have hear the speakers and amps in different systems. The Cary 805 is interesting because in many ways they do not sound like an 845 amp, rather they sound like a 300B on steroids (rich, big midrange, little sluggish sounding) IMHO. I say this because I think that could be complementary to the Virgoes which I think are a bit clinical sounding. I don't know what size room you have, what volume levels you use and what music you enjoy but I recall the 805 having both 4 and 8 ohm tap selector switch?
