Linn Sara! They're simply incredible for their size! And you can get them CHEAP, too! If you run - I think you can find a pair on ebay right now - though their price's running a bit high last time I looked.
Hi, " Being an Ex-Linnie & Naim Nait owner (original/ Nait 2 & 3 versions) I've great results in matching My Naits with Linn Kans / Proac Tablettes / Vienna Acoustics Haydn & Harbeth Acoustics HL-P3's................, And, Consider this Last Year, I owned a Nait 2 w/ the Vienna Haydn's.........,And used them with Harmonic Technology Truth-Link (I/C) & Pro 11+ LSC. everyone whom had listened too this set up loved it. Of course, The Front End was a Well Tempered Classic W/ Black Arm & Platter Upgrades & Lyra Lydian -or- Roksan Corus Black Cartridges. " ( IT JUST CLICKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
A few years ago I was using Spendor S3/5s with a NAC 62 and NAP 90/3, which was very very close to a Nait 3. In an apartment living room of 10' x 10' it was wonderful. Moving into a house and a 20' x 25' living room with high ceilings it was (understandably) lacking in power. I made the mistake of upgrading the speakers to floorstanders, but instead I should have just upgraded the power amp instead.
I'd strongly recommend the Spendor bookshelf speakers, or any other BBC 3/5 variant.
I am using a pair of ProAc Response 1 SC speakers with excellent results with a Naim Nait 1 integrated amp. I have used these speakers with many amps mostly Naim amps (Nait 5, NAP140 and NAP135's - Naim's best amps). If you have a small to medium size room you can not beat these speakers.
PS: Well worth the cost.
After considerable auditioning, I ended up matching the Reference 3a Dulcets with my Naim gear; Nait 5i and CD5x. A very fine combo: well worth an audition of the Dulcets. They have all of the strengths typical of high quality small monitors; but something extra in the direct, open access to the music. Plus; a surprisingly big sound and stage, with real weight in the bass.
