    I currently use a pair of PMC FB1's with my CD82 and A85, and they sound stunning.
    I managed to pick them up ex-demo (they are the pre "+" version) for £900.
    A great chice if you can shop around a bit and find some.

    Agree with Crustyloafer, Monitor Audio GR10s sound great with my CD72T, A80/90P.

    I picked up a pair of B&W Nautilus 805's for £900 to use with my A90/P90.

    Works extremely well in my opinion. Bass is not quite as powerful as I would like however.

    Whilst they do take a while to settle down (50 hrs) I would suggest the Monitor Audio S6's.

    I demo'd these next to the GR10's & whilst I'd have to say that I prefered the GR10's they didn't quite have the same degree of bass. They're also £699 + supports so your looking at approx £800 Vs the S6's @ £500.

    You maybe be able to find a set of GR20's for £850ish on ebay or GR10's for approx £400 but you never know with 2nd hand speakers.

    If you have a grand, then maybe the GR10's - they are about to be replaced though?

    They are not about to be replaced, but MA are bringing out a higher end ranger above the gold series, the standmounters should retail at about 2K.

    As it's a couple of months since the last reply, you've maybe bought speakers already. However, I just got a pair of Audio Physic Yara Evolution speakers (German) for my A90. In Norway they're sold for NOK 9000 which is around £ 750. They sound very open and you can really place the musicians and vocalists in the sound picture. They're a downscaled (and priced) version of another model just called Yara.

    I am very happy with Linn Ninka and my arcam set.

    Perhaps a bit unusual (dont really see the Ninka's alot round here) and never came across Ninka's combined with Arcam but they sound great according to me. Must add though that it really started to sound great when I paired up with the P25.
