I would suggest you to get Triangle Zephyr $800 new floor-standers 3'H,3/4'W,1'D 91dB efficient and good for another amplifier upgrade

A pair of B&W CDM-1 NT would do the trick ($800 used). Or even better, the original CDM-1 if they are in good shape ($600 used). (I am not as crazy about the CDM-1 SE, but they're OK.) Sticking with B&W; the DM602-S2 are pretty good for $400 and even the DM302 for $175 (Stereophile even likes the 302).
Jonathans, I also have a 4330 in one of my systems. It is an absolutely wonderful little integrated amp. It will allow you to enjoy even the most demanding monitor if you have, as you describe, a small room. You should spend as much as you can to get the most accurate speakers within your budget. They are the most important component in your system. I presently use the Harbeth Compact 7ES monitors with the big brother Creek 5350SE. In a small room the 4330 will drive them. My present room is small as well, and they are very close to the wall and sound wonderful. You cannot hardly go wrong with most any of the "BBC" monitors that have a heritage of use in studios for sound mixing. They include Harbeth, Spendor, Rogers, B&W, etc... They all make very small to large monitors. If these are beyond your budget look at the PSB line, I have had good luck with them as well. And please, please look in the future to taking advantage of the pre-out on the 4330 and add a good powered subwoofer. You can make a really good move here, my friend. Good luck. Charlie
