Since you will be listening in a near-field environment I would be inclined to go with book shelf monitors. I think the Philharmonitor would be a decent fit although the speaker is a bit on the large side. The B&W 685s and the KEF Q300s are great speakers but probably not the best for near-field use. Have you considered the Pioneer BS22 book shelf speaker instead of the FS52 tower?
