Your favorite towers

What would your preferred tower speakers be, at around a ~$2500/pair budget (minus dual subs), if you are looking for a very clean, open, detailed, live orchestral sound with a very wide soundstage and that aren't too finicky about speaker placement?

Are the 206's very open? I heard they were rather directional. Do they fill the room w/music like the KEF's?

Definitive Technology BP7001sc's hit every one of your points except location. Those are very picky on where they are placed but have an incredibly wide soundstage (being bipolar) and can achieve deep mid bass with the built in powered woofers. Not subwoofer catagory but I have mine set to small with a 40Hz crossover and they are very tight and loud with the mid bass.
