Hey guys,

Just wandering if anyone can recommend a pair of floorstanding speakers to suit this set up: naim 5i, naim cd5x. My budget is <£1,250 and so far i've tried out some PMC GB1's, which seemed to complement the system quite well but want to know if anyone out there has any other suggestions? I listen to a range of music from ambient electronica to metal via johnny cash.

What do you reckon? What are people with a similar set-up running?

Nice rig.

I think a host of British speakers would go well with those highly regarded components. The Naim 5 is not a behemoth of an integrated so for full dynamic range, I would look at something that has relatively high sensitivity (92+dB).

You don't need high sensitivity, the Nait5i is more powerful than many would credit. Apart from the PMCs, here's a few floorstanders in that price range that suit the combination well (I've tried them all bar the EPOS):

Totem Arro - almost made to measure
Dynaudio Audience 62
Dynaudio Audience 72 (just)
EPOS M22.2 (just, also difficult to drive)
Naim Arivas (bang on the top of your budget)

Naim gear is GREAT. I hear the Shahinian Starter is a really good partner to the Naim Nait gear.
