    so these are the speaker that im looking for
    Jamo: D590, C607, C605, C805, C807, C809
    B&W: 602s3, 603s3, 704, 703... up to 805
    JMlap: chorus 807V, 816V, 826V, 836V
    Dynaudio: audiance 52, 122 and focus 110, 140
    Kef: iq7, iq9

    Noo Joisey. Youse got a problem wit dat?

    Speakers are a preference, not a good/bad, issue and no easy answer can be offered.

    One good thing is that the NAD is a fairly hefty unit and can easily drive many speakers. Another good thing is that it's your speaker that determines 99.5% of the sound you hear. The amp's contribution is negligible, assuming it has the requisite clean power to drive the speaker.

    If you did your listening using a power amp of similar power to your NAD, you got a fairly decent representation of what the speaker will sound like with your amp. If not, you should have.

    The only variable, which nobody can really answer, is how they will sound in your home. I'd say go listen to the speakers, narrow down your choices to one or two per line, and finally work out some home trials with your local dealers and use that for your final decision. A tile floor will boost the mids/highs, though.

    thx for your reply Markw, the Nad sys seems to be so good with term of power as well as power handling, that why i looking for the long term speaker as well, i have been demo some speaker over few days, Kef, jamo and dyn are quite good for my taste, but they were played with other amp, may be i have to ask for take those speaker home and demo with my Nad.

    well the B&W's 604's are good speakers, their 700 series are a tad to bright for me.
    the focals (jmlab) chorus 836 is a really good speaker, and it plays very good with nad gear, I like them more than the B&W 604's
    dynaudio's are really good speakers too, completely different than the B&W's and Focals.

    It's your choice, they're your ears, and your speakers, not mine. You should audition them, and more if you find them. then choose the one you like the best.

    Good luck,

    but any guy here can tell me about Kef and Jamo. Basite saying true about chorus 836, but how its compare to Jamo D590, C809 and Kef IQ9.
    so my decision will narrow down to these Chorus, Kef and Jamo

    PSB and Focal (JMlabs) go well with NAD IMO, Dynaudio should be good as well.

    Dude, no offense, but we can't do all the work for you on this. You are the one who has to like how it sounds as you will be the one listening to it and not us. Therefore, your best bet is to audition, audition, and audition speakers until you find something you like. Pair things together with NAD and see what happens. PSB and NAD are a very common pair and are likely to get satisfactory results as others have mentioned. There are many other good combinations to go with, but the bottom line is that it needs to be what YOU want, not us. There is nothing wrong with asking for advice, suggestions, opinions, but make sure that you don't just take our word for it.
