Budget? Room size? Type of music you prefer?

Try the speakers you already have available to you. They may meet your needs. If not, buy some new speakers. That way you have a reference to know if the new speakers were actually an upgrade over what you already had.
If you do decide to buy new speakers, check out the reviews by Zero Fidelity and Steve Guttenburg on YouTube. Both of them review several budget priced bookshelf speakers.
I'll offer one opinion, if you don't mind..... Buy speakers that are sealed enclosures, or have ports on the front (not the back), if you are limited in space and require the speaker to sit close to the wall behind them.
Your network amp puts out lower power so an easy to drive speaker like the Klipsch bookshelf speakers would serve you well. They are rear ported so would need to have some space between the wall for rear bass port to breath. But if your room is small and you don't listen very loud the Elacs are a good budget choice.
I'm checking out the Klipsch. Also by pure chance I have stumbled across an opportunity to grab these oberon 1 speakers by dali rather cheaply. How would these be? https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/dali-oberon-1
