    Default Bookshelf speakers - For the missus sysem, any recommendations....... PLEASE!!

    Wanted - Your suggestions for a small pair of bookshelf speakers, they will be linked to a NAD3020b integrated, mainly playing CD's. The system belongs to the missus (so I dont need to spend too much ). Thanks lads.

    Great little speakers. A real classic and amazingly punchy.

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    With that amp perhaps a second-hand pair of Amphion Argons, or Heliums at more of a budget.

    These are good, cheap & cheerful (actually better than the modern version)

    The 731i are also very musical speakers.
