    Hi,

    I really like the sound of the Naim CD player and Amp together, but can anyone suggest compatible stand-mounnt speakers to demo with. I've heard it with Ela Rega floorstanders, but would ideally prefer stand-mounts. The room is approx. 18' x 14'. Thanks.

    Hi Sim01,

    I would take a look at the ProAc Response 1SC or the Tablette Reference 8 Signatures, both are very sweet sounding speakers and would be a great listen connected to the Naim Kit... :)

    Linn Katans should be on the list as should PMC TB2. There's also another make which I heard once and almost convinced me to buy Naim....Shahinian. They are a bit different and some people hate them others (like me) love them. They do in my opinion sound stunning with Naim.
    Just something a little different to consider....

    Great - thanks. I'll try to find out where I can demo them - hopefully somewhere in SW London!

    Thanks for the ideas. I thought the Linn Katans should work well, and I'll start to investigate the others. I'll let you know how I get on.

    I bought Naim Nait 5i / Nait CD5i last year and have tested some speakers, among them Rega, PMC GB1 and FB1, Spendor S3 and S8.

    PMC were very good, but I've fallen in love with Spendors. My room is 35m2 and S3 were not big enough. So I took S8. It cost me a little fortune, but haven't regret it for a second.

    I suggest: don't give money away before you hear that.
