Speakers for my naim system

Recommended Posts

HI,

 

I have a Naim pre/power amp  (152/155) with a CDX2 player. What are good speakers to partner with this combination? I have had this set up for the last 5 years and have tried a number of different speakers it and have been disappointed with the sound. I have tried Tannoy Precision floor standers ( too harsh), Q Acoustics 3050's ( to undefined)  and Vienna Acoustics Haydn SE's ( great with vocals but become muddled with more complex music) .

Another member of stereonet has some Opera Grand Mezza speakers for sale and I am also considering  the KEF Q range. I would be very grateful for members advice and opinions. I have a max budget of $3k.

 

Thanks

See if you can find some PMC speakers. I used to have some PMC OB1s with a 140. They did sound a lot better with the 250.2. What size room do you have?

HI Pkay- my room is 5m by 4.3m. I am not familiar at all with PMC speakers?

 

HI Sanders- Thanks- but I have always wanted a Naim system, and changing it with so much choice out there would be very scary.

You could contact Audio Trends, Andrew Coles is the Naim man there, he might be able you give some suggestions.

Do you have the NACA5 Speaker cable?

I once tried Naim system (32.5 or 42.5 + 110 NAP)  with Orpheus Aurora  2 speakers and they sounded REALLY good. I think it will be a trial and error thing.

Another suggestion I would recommend that you try a hicap or Teddy Pardo power supply. My experience with Naim was that the hicap made a huge difference. The Teddy gets a lot of positive reviews and is much cheaper. 

 

The earlier comment on the NacA5 cable is important.

Yup, I can +1 for the PMC speakers. I've heard them with Naim and Creek integrated amps in a showrooms and friends' houses a few years ago. Was exceedingly impressed :)
