The NAD C326 is very interesting integrated amplifier. It sounds the best with the Zu Audio Wylde short Pre/Amp interconnect cables. The Rega Brio R will hardly smoke C326 with the Zu Audio interconnects.

I've had a NAD in my office system. It has that characteristic NAD "signature: sound: aon the dark side with a rolled off top-end. Careful speakaer matching is required. PSB speakers are one such choice.
I sold the NAD and I moved up to quality British electronics (REGA and ARCAM) ... a whole step up in audio performance from the NAD; especially with my REGA speakers .
With your UK speaker upgrade plan choices, the REGA BRIO-R will smoke the NAD in my experiences ....easy choice IMO.
