    As I work from home, I listen to a lot of background music from my PC but I'd like to take the sound beyond what I currently get from my 4:1 PC Creative 4400 speakers.

    I've found my old trusty NAD302 amplifier and want to use that to drive better sound but I need a decent pair of budget speakers - or good speakers at a budget price on ebay - to sit on my desk.

    Any suggestions as to what would sound good with a NAD302 amp and can handle everything from classics through dance to rock music ?!!!

    Buy a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 speakers... Superb sound quality and ridiculous value for money... Magnetically shielded too... Diminutive at: W x H x D (mm): 145 x 236 x 165 , they'll fit anywhere and your Nad amp will drive them no problem mate. I've had a pair for over a year and am still amazed by the sound... :smashin:

    Shop around on the Internet and you can blag a pair for £89... :)

    if you can get hold of a pair on celestion 3 mk2`s (ebay £40) sound extremely clear, i had them on the rotle 820ax which is only 25w and they sounded great, i then upgraded to the mordaunt short 902i`s and never looked back! even on the old amp (£100 new on offer at nottingham audio visual on the net i think, £150 in richer sounds)

    Well worth a listen.
