Integrated amp recommendations for harbeth 30.2 XD
I don't have experience with the Monitor 30's only the 40's and the SHL5 series. The best integrated amps I have heard with the Harbeth's are the Aesthetix Mimas and the Ayre EX-8. The Mimas was what I chose but I liked the EX-8 almost as much. Th...

No, John doesn't advertise it but he likes it for his Proac customers. For everything else he likes AQ.

Speaker pairing for Naim Nait 5i
Look at the Vandersteen VLR Wood. It should be a great match to the Naim and can be found (occasionally) in your price range. New they are $1650. Here is a review:https://www.vandersteen.com/media/files/Tone%20Audio%20VLR%20Review%202015.pdf 
Moving up the Harbeth line
Agree that the TON TRAGER stands are the best for Harbeth’s but if you cannot spend the $1500 for them the Something Solid XF stands are really good.https://www.hificorner.co.uk/something-solid-xf-speaker-stand.htmlThe bass issue will be fixed wit...

Are there any speakers for nearfield listening that sound GREAT at low volumes?
The Harbeth P3ESR Loudspeakers play well at low volumes. One of Harbeth's strengths. 
Looking for a DAC under 2k
The Ayre Codex is a worthy option. A Colorado based company that offers excellent support and service if needed. For under $2K it's a great DAC.https://www.ayre.com/products/digital/codex/

Vandersteen Treo CT’s would be a good choice-https://www.vandersteen.com/products/treo-ct 
Re-terminate speaker cables
Audioquest does not solder the terminations on their speaker cables.
