I pair Mark Levinson No. 436s using Transparent cable with my 800-861 Meridian rig.
AVRev.com mamanging editor, Andrew Robinson uses G-Series Meridian with the Levinson 3 channel amp and Meridian in-walls (among other speakers)
AVRev.com senior editor, Bryan Southard uses G series meridian with Levinson 436 amps.
Reviewer Dr. Ken Taraszka uses an 800-861 with Levinson amps.
I think the reviewers have spoken with their wallets.
