I'm not familiar with the P6, but B&W generally need lots of power. Despite the power rating on the Marantz, I don't think you can drive them to their full potential. There are some very good full-range speakers listed on Audiogon - in your pr... 
How to amplify four 'front- speakers
I think you need a multi-channel (4?) amp. There's no way that Sony is driving the B&Ws properly. Ignore the supposed wattage specs of the receiver. The Adcom speaker switch box is OK, but I'm not big on Adcom amps.

Has the Oppo carried the AV industry?
I agree with KR4. I'm not a videophile, but I hear the 105 delivers first-class sound as a dvd/cd player AND as a DAC. For $1200.Is it perfect? No. Is it worth $1200 for what it does? I'll find out. It's sitting in a box in my office, having been ... 
Is Anyone Using The Oppo 105 As A Preamp?

looking for solution...maybe simple question???
Without getting into the math, you need to double the watts to get any appreciable increase in volume. That said, all amps - at a given wattage - are not the same.So a 65 wpc amp and an 80 wpc amp will give you the same volume.

It couldn't be easier with dBpoweramp Music Converter. You create a new folder, then batch-convert a whole folder to .mp3 (or whatever) in the new folder, while still keeping the original lossless files. Do it overnight, and then direct itunes to ...

Music Hall CD 25.2 Issues?
I have the cd-25 (not 25.2). I haven't noticed a click, but haven't listened for it. I think all Music Hall players suffer from the track starting a split-second late. It only happens under certain circumstances - I think forwarding to the track a...
