B&W nautilus 804

Hi I have an old but much loved pair of Nautilus 804 speakers. I’m looking to upgrade my underpowered old system based around a Nac 150 with the naim uniti nova. Will this be powerful enough and is the Nac 250 amp at the same 80 WPC the same power if I take that route instead.
Many thanks
Iain

The NAP250 may be similar in power but it’s a superior power amp to the one in the Nova. Obviously it requires a pre-amp and source at a similar level, but it’s likely the better partner for the 804s. With the NAP250 you’d need at least a pre-amp on the level fo a NAC82 or 282 with a Hicap of course as the NAP250 cannot power a pre-amp.
