    I'm trying to setup my home studio, so I'm thinking of Spendor S 3/5 as monitors (legendary predecessor LS 3/5 was used by BBC as nierfield monitors for 25 years, only the best reviews around) powered by NAD 352. I wonder if anyone has any experience with S 3/5 as monitors... anyway for now NAD 352 is only an option, but still I'm looking for oppinions for best amp for those little gems.

    ... as I noticed at the store, sound changed dramatically as amplifire was changed. At first I heard S 3/5 with Arcam A90 - the sound was muddy, with lack of highs, then it was changed to Roksan "Caspian(?)" and sound was quite opposite to what I've heard first - brilliant highs, clean, dynamic midrange, warm lows etc ... still both of these amps are for aprox. 1500$ which is too much for me right now. I was told to wait few days for NAD 352 which has to be best amp for 500$. Still I haven't heard it in the combination with S 3/5...

    Thanks in advance for your oppinion :)
