If you want something really small, the Paradigm MilleniaOne is probably the highest performing satellite speakers money can buy. They sound pretty much exactly like the rest of Paradigm's Reference speakers minus the bass. IMO, ignoring the bass (because I would never run any bookshelf speaker without a sub), I'm not aware of any speaker for the price of the MilleniaOne's that sound better.

This is what Home Theater has to say

Imaging was extraordinary: These speakers could produce a seamless soundfield in 5.1 channels and, the harder trick, a convincing soundstage in 2.1 channels. Off-axis listening gave up only a little of this seemingly miraculous mastery. These speakers could depict objects in space better off axis than most speakers can on axis. Midrange was on the revealing side, though it was richly detailed and voluptuous, not merely thin or hard. And the top end was up there with the best—not just the best satellites, but the best speakers, period.

Sound and Vision shared the same view

After an hour, I was convinced that the Paradigm MilleniaOne/MilleniaSub combo is one of the best lifestyle systems I’ve reviewed. And after 4 hours, I was convinced it’s one of the best speaker systems I’ve reviewed.

Home Theater Sound compared the MilleniaOne system to a $16194 Paradigm Signature system
Quote:
The clarity of the Millenia system’s midrange and treble were close to those of the Signatures, but the high frequencies weren’t as silky smooth. For example, though cymbals weren’t splashy with the Millenias, they lacked that sparkling quality exhibited by the Signatures’ wonderful beryllium tweeters. The acoustic guitar on Nils Lofgren’s "Keith Don’t Go" was powerful and dynamic through the Millenias, but the metallic sound of the strings lacked that last touch of refinement and detail that the Signatures deliver.

The OP asked for price no object speakers. And frankly, even though it seems ridiculous to pay that much for tiny speakers, the MilleniaOnes are a steal for their price if you consider its sound quality. Replace the $1400 Paradigm sub in that package with a $650 SVS SB12, and it becomes a fantastic sounding $2000 system that few can outperform within the price range.
