Question What to choose? JBL HLS820 vs Energy C5 vs PSB T65 vs Tannoy v4

Hello everyone!

First off let me start by thanking you guys for the information and discussions posted here - I'd go even more crazy w/out it than I'm(with it ) now.

Story: so I recently moved to a new apartment with 14ft ceilings and decided to use one white wall as a screen for HT. After spending long hours reading reviews and discussions the following items were bought: Benq w1070 as a projector and Pioneer VSX-1127(which apparently is identical to VSX-1123) as a receiver.

Nevertheless the system will most probably be used: 60% music(80s, deep house, french electro), 35% movies, 5% maybe games.

Now with regards to speakers it's much harder for me to make a decision so here I am asking for some advice/opinion.

The budget is about 500$(600$ in case of something exceptional). Here's the "furniture" I considering so far:
- JBL HLS820 $200.00
- Energy Connoisseur C5 300$ with center channel
- ENERGY 5.1e 200$
- PSB Image T65 500$
- TANNOY Mercury V4 550$

Assuming they all are available how would you order them with respect to my priorities? Feel free to recommend something else in the same budget which you think I should consider(any Klipsch? )

Thanks!

Looks like the name of my thread isn't SEO-catchy enough - probably should've called it "18yo girl needs some help with her 34D speakers pls xoxo"

Have you listened to any of these speakers? Speakers are a very individual preference especially for music - the JBL is probably going to quite bright, the Energy speakers on the "warm" side, and the PSB probably in the middle - accurate and slightly bright. What type of speakers do you typically like or have liked in the past? That might help.

I would probably go listen to the PSB towers - I would bet those are very nice.

2-Ch (HT L/R): Oppo BDP-105 BD, Adcom GFP-750 pre, Bryston 10B Sub Xover, Bryston 4BSST2 / Paradigm Signature S4 v.2 (L/R), (2) SVS SB12-NSD (Subs)
Home Theater: Bryston 4BSST2 amp / Paradigm CC-590 (C), Outlaw 7700 amp / (4) Def Tech UIW-RSSII (LS/RS/LB/RB), Samsung 46” 3D LCD

The JBL HLS series speakers are smooth and Not bright to me - they did a nice job with that series.
