Thanks for your reply, it’s a 3 bed Victorian house front room approximately 4m x 3.5m and I’m looking to buy new.
 
Many thanks
any Richersounds or other dealers around you to get to?
just bear in mind that with the lowish output of your amp you need to look at the most efficient speakers you can find so perhaps the Mission LX5 might be worth a listen to.
Basically audition whatever you can and, if possible, in your own room with your amp.

Kef q350s would be within budget ((£380) & the kef q300 you can pick up s/h for around £200. They will also both be worthy of a more powerful amp should you up grade in the future. The older q300s are front ported which makes them a little more forgiving if you have to place them closer to a rear wall.........i used to own the q300s & used them with an old 30 watt rotel amp & they were great to my ears😁

Thanks everyone for your comments, I’m going to listen to a pair of AE-109’s tomorrow any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, I understand their 4ohms , I’m attracted to the price £430 and the fact they’re compact for floorstanders, obviously my ears will decide but advice is welcome

it would appear they are 6 ohm and 89dB, if they are the latest edition, so reasonably easy to drive, they have certainly been very well reviewed.

Unfortunately they are the old edition end of line from audio t, I usually go with what hifi 5 star gear, as it’s never let me down yet, but can’t find anything regarding the ae-109, and not the ae-109 2

I listen to music lying on the sofa, but all sorted, I went for Dali Oberon 5’s as they’re small, & lucked out as I exchanged my io for a brand new brio (grade b) only for a few quid more so I’m a happy camper, however I would really appreciate advice on any potential upgrade for my turntable, which is currently an AT-LP120XBTUSB, would a Rega p3 make a significant difference?
Any opinions are more than welcome, thanks

This question shows my ignorance, but when they say a turntable “needs care in positioning” what does this mean?

For 605 euros or 526 pound you can get a pair of Mission LX 6 MK II in Denmark, if the amp can handle down to 3 ohm i will say a pair of those speakers. The mission LX 5 MK II can be bought for 499 pounds in uk

If to crazy a pair of mission LX 3 mk II + stands

If you wanna play loud look at klipsch
