What is your actual budget? You listened to speakers from $130 to $3000. The KEF Q300s are excellent for music and HT. I think they sound great with rock music. The Klipsch are really quite good for HT but you need to be a fan of the horn tweeter. I´m not a big fan (at least for music) but that´s just me. Have you considered the internet direct brands? Ascend Acoustics is one example. The CMT-340SEs (mini-towers) are excellent for HT (or the CBM-170SEs, book shelf) and have a very resolving tweeter especially for vocals. I have the CBM-170SEs in my HT and one of the many things that stood out for me was the clarity of vocals.
