Hi lads,
I decided to buy a Classé CA-D200 for my B&W 804 Matrix speakers, finally I got 'trigger' to work, but it is tricky..

Once I got it working, it disabled center and surround speakers, that sure wasnt my intention... I just tried watching a movie now, and thats a killer... :(

Hope you lads can help me out how to configurate, sure would be ashame if I need to get a 5ch amp and not just use the Marantz for the surround speakers...

Esp. since I am going to get another 2 speakers (7.1 instead of current 5.1)

Hope someone out there know :-/

I'd rather not buy more stuff at this point.

Problem solved...
If anyone in future reads this... Front channel A has to be active/enabled otherwise it disables all speakers.
