tennisball
Price Range ??

Audio Physic Sparks come to mind
Wisdom Audio would be my choice.
Budget and any other constraints, such as size of speakers, can they be floorstanding, and size of room. B&W 303 are good if he needs a small speaker and the room isn't too big.
Somehow I've realized that there is no wisdom in Wisdom Audio. If money were not option I would still choose Tannoy D900 to bring a wisdom.
Since he's a doctor(=$$$...$) look into the top end Cabasse $4K to $13K (a french lab but drivers made in Georgia) as well as Ambience a Australian lab making a solid wood cabinet hybred Ribbon $6K call Darryl in Austin Tx. Digital Systems (he is listed as a Kora Dealer for his p#) You'll only hear of these from me.
If I were doctor on residential practice, I wouldn't buy any speakers since there would be no time to listen to them.
Becides there is no money there.
My friend gave me his vinyl collection for the period of his residencial practice since he doesn't have any time to listen to them.
If he realy needs speakers he has to go to the listening room and listen to different speakers with probably same electronics. Maybe he would just be OK with cheap and small monitors for the beginning.
I think Mr. Marakanetz sums it up quite nicely and considering the amp is a Sony
I would go with the 300 series B&Ws too or any speaker fairly forgiving of electronics. Am I correct in guessing that he is a fairly casual listener, HT type of guy? Paradigm Reference might also do well with off-axis and HT use.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR COMMENTS , WE WILL HAVE TO DO SOME UP GRADES .HE LIKES A SIMPLE EASY TO USE SYSTEM THAT WILL DO BOTH VIDEO AND AUDIO, HE IS NOT AN AUDIOPHILE.
Now Tennisball has given us some info--I think Bose or maybe Bang and Olufsen. They are the masters at simple and easy to use--and you don't have to worry about them being too Audiophile.
He could build a pretty respectable system with:
-Outlaw 1050 A/V receiver
-Axiom speakers(80s up front, M3s surround, center, sub)
-Pioneer DVD player(as transport into Outlaw)
-Apogee Wyde Eye digital cable
-ZuCable interconnects/cable
The entire system would cost around $2500 and be great for music or movies.

If he's got some spare cash:
-Linn CD12
-Ayre DVD player
-Boulder pre/pro
-Halcro amps
-5 or 7 Talon Khorus Xs w/ 2 Roc subs
-Nordost Valhalla cables all around
-Crestron remote to tie it all together and make it easy

Of course there are a few options in between. Best of luck.

Try the ATC Concept 2 system. It's 5 speakers and a sub. Each speaker is internally bi-amped. A B&K or Intergra Research Pre/Pro and great DVD player and you have an amazing, highly simple, and incredible sounding system for under $17K. www.atc.gb.net
