Compact Bedroom System...?

This is a slightly different post from me, as I'm typically asking about larger speakers...

I'm looking for a relatively small / compact bedroom system, as I've finally got around to mounting a TV in there. I had been using some Logitech Z5500 speakers in there up until now, but since they would be a bit odd to use with a receiver (logitech system is self-powered and needs an optical feed for surround), I'd prefer to use a system that can be plugged directly into my smaller Yamaha HDMI receiver, which has been unused as of late.

Is there any good recommendations within the Energy -- or non-Energy -- lines that might be recommended? From what

I've read on here, the take classic 5.1 set sounds decent for the cost, and there's the spinoff Monoprice version of it (I'd need a link to that though, to know which it is)...but beyond that, I don't really know what to look for. I'm not looking to spend a fortune, but would like it to sound at least decently good. Built-in wall mounting capabilities would be the main requirement I can really think of. I know a budget would be helpful, but I don't know how much to expect from a given price range for speakers of that sort.

Thankfully the Logitech Z5500's seem to have somewhat of a cult-following in the PC-user world these days, so I may be able to sell them via Craigslist or (less preferably) eBay for a decent price & make back most (or surpass) my costs.

Suggestions very welcome!

While I haven't heard them myself, that's very true -- not something I've ever really read described in regard to the RC-70's on here. I will say though, that the 2.2i's are very, very smooth in not fatiguing my ears...whereas all the other (decently good) Energy speakers I've owned over time (5.1e's, C-8's, APS 5+2's) did start to fatigue me over time. I think if you split the difference between those and the 2.2i's, perhaps that'd be somewhere where the RC-70's would fall tweeter-wise (though I'd guess closer to the 2.2i's than the C-8's, etc).

So perhaps there is a bit of a difference, but something we'd only be able to really notice from someone who has owned both?

Pure speculation on my part...
