Like to hear from more experienced people in electronics and reading measurements, what would be audible better then the Behringer A800.
Powering Harbeth 30.2, mostly singer song writer, reasonable loudness, 40 square meter rectangular, speakers on long side 2 meters apart 3 meters to listening position. Money no object.
thx in advance for the replies.

Nothing would. The A800 is audibly transparent, so provided it has sufficient power, and it does for anyone sane, especially using Harbeth loudspeakers, there is no benefit whatsoever in another amplifier.

Of course if what you want is an excuse to buy something more expensive, then by all means. If you want something that isn't transparent, that has a sound of its own, then there are lots of options, but none of them 'better' than the A800, just different.

I'm using a Crown XLS1502 with LS50's. It's probably the same thing as the A800 with more power and a built in highpass filter for bass management. I suspect it's of more robust construction. I don't see anything wrong with your setup. It's a big room, but if it plays loud enough that's good.

I know your speakers are front ported but do you leave them up against the wall as in the pic on the Benchmark thread?
Might experiment with placement? Free tweak
