The B&W 685s are decent speakers but I would recommend going out and listening to speakers to get a feel for what you like. Your listening space is on the larger side so it might make more sense to go with towers up front. Also, keep in mind you will need a decent subwoofer or maybe two depending on the room. There are some decent internet direct retailers out there worth looking at as well such as Ascend Acoustics and HSU research. Many of these online retailers offer a 30-day trial period but you would need to pay return shipping if not satisfied.
