Hi. I have no experience with your speakers, but I heard your amp and cd player. It did sound a bit rought to me (a bit bright), so Wharfedale Diamond 220 should pair it just nicely, and they work good close to a wall. If you like a brighter presentation and can give them some room, you could audition Dali Zensor 3. I recently auditioned the 220 and Zensor 1, and I prefered the Wharfedales with both Nad C326 and Marantz PM6005. But to your ears, something else might sound better, so you audition if you can (preferably in your home; if not, take your amp with you, but keep in mind that the room you're in matters as much as a component itself).
