Hi, was just wondering what kind of bass I can expect with the 800. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I listen to a lot of "bassy" music (reggae, house, hiphop, rnb) so I like my bass "tight". I know for HT you want to have more of a rumble, but quite frankly, I listen to music more than I watch movies. So should the 800 be able to deliver tight thumps when listening to Bob (that would be Marley, of course)? I'm getting it anyhow, but just wondering.

I'm also wondering if I should invest in a 2-channel amp as well. I just picked up the Denon 3808, but I just read a post in a another thread where the guy was REALLY impressed with his Emotiva? amp. Would this be overkill for me, or money well spent?

I'll be making my final payment today, and the 800 ships out on monday so I'll let you know how it goes.

being a sealed sub, it should work well for those selections, however, a lot depends on your room layout.

The amp is your decision, wait to see if the Denon works for you, if you think you want more then go ahead and get a seperate amp to drive the M80s, no harm in getting more power, whether or not you will use the extra power is up to you.

Jason I suspect that if the EP-800 was going to ship out on (Monday!) someone who had preordered in November would have received a message something similar like................................your order has been shipped
