I like speakers I can live with for a long time - bought DCM Time Windows back in 1982 and still like them. But I have a "great" room (24X20, speakers on the 24' wall) in which I want bookshelf speakers, to be located literally in bookshelves. So either front ports or sealed is necessary. Height of speakers will be about 5' above floor, in 12" deep bookshelves and spaced about 12' apart. I like B&W 805 for their soundstage and presence, but to my ear they lack sufficient dynamics for rock and roll. Budget - less than $10k. Wide dispersion and good spl important, for this is a large room. Have sub and rear channel speakers already now need center and side channels as well. System will be used more for audio than HT.
