for my cambridge AZUR 540A.

I had that amp on demo for a while and was using it with a pair of Mission speakers and they went together very well, certainly not fatigueing in any way. I see though they are quite hard to find in the states but if you can source them I would also add them to your shortlist. There are others of course....

valeem thanks for the reply
i actually went and demo'ed the following
1.psb b25
2.kef q1
3.jmlab 706
i chose the psb thought they had the warmest sound of the three punchy bass.
close second were the kef's
jm labs to bright for my taste.

I've heard PSB speakers although with NAD seperates and liked them allot and I can see them going well with Cambridge as neither stray too far forward or have excessive warmth to be uncomfortable. You demo'd and picked the ones you liked and that's all that really matters in this game. Enjoy!

I agree with ollyb. The new Wharfedales are a force to be taken seriously.
