Default Mordaunt Short question

As a newby to the hi-fi game, I'm currently looking for some entry level loudspeakers. I've been looking at the Mordaunt Short 902is and my question has to do with the "properly matching" to an amplifier. I don't know what this entails. I'm currently running a Rega P1 and an NAD integrated c315bee along with the NAD PP2 phono amp. Would the 902's be a good choice? If not, why?
Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It just means if the speakers are 4 ohm you need an amp that can drive down to 4 ohms. If the speakers are 8 ohms then you have nothing to worry about.

I don't think this is the right forum for this. I think the whathifi dot co dot uk forum will have loads of people with more enthusiastic opinions.

Erm... I hope that was okay to post?

I don't think whathifi is really a competing forum per se...

It's probably accurate given that this is a DIY forum, & this particular section is primarily dedicated to full-range / wide-band drive units.

FWIW, the MS902 is a decent speaker for what it is & should match the NAD amp reasonaby well; you'd probably do well to look at the Acoustic Energy brand, Wharfedale or any of the other big box-shifters. They all do a reasonable job, or better.
