Thanks, very much, according to all of you i will spend my time and money on speakers first !
at the list above i was wonder how much better it will be than my MA Bronze B4 ?
Only you can be the judge of that. Just for the record, imo it's all about the synergy, and I think every link in the chain is as important as the other, so if you decide on a particular pair of speakers, remember what the partnering equipment was. From reading around, the Nad is let down by an average preamp section, even if the power amp section is pretty good. Imo the amp and source are as important as the speakers.

Monitor audio B4 is around 10 years old, last gen silver 100 can be had for around 600 euros, that is a good price, stands if you need a pair can be had for 100 euros and up

Monitor Audio, Kef and Dali all go very well with the Nad C320BEE in my experience. Also the Marantz PM6000 series amps are not an upgrade for your Nad which in my opinion is the best cheap integrated money can buy

Thanks for your remarks, i will look for decent speakers, personally i prefer floor speakers but will listen to shelf too (like deep bass). So i narrow my list to KEF Q550, Dali Obreon 5 and maybe monitor audio silver

The highs on the Oberon can be to much at high levels, concept,zensor has all have a bright sound that easily can give fatigue, but not dali spektor 1 if the spektor 6 is as good or better in the highs as spektor 1 i can also recommend you to listen to it

Monitor audio silver has a new generation but some places it's possible to get the old silver, try both
