Since you are open to speakers it seems like I highly recommend the Fritz Carbon 7. Although the bass wont be as deep as your initial choices since bookshlves vs. towers, it sure will be better defined and natural and you wont miss the bottom end because the bass going down to 35hz is so damn good on the Fritz.
Also, the Evolution Acoustics Micro Ones are good. I heard these today with a darTzeeL set-up and man it was magic although the electonics played part of it. These speakers are special just like the Fritz. I have not heard ANY bookshlef speakers that have better bass than the Fritz and I have heard SHITLOAD of speakers.
If you can somehow get the MicroOnes at the orginal price of $2,000 delivered , they are a fantastic deal.
Just to give you an idea, overall, the Micro Ones are in a different league than the KEF LS-50's and the Fritz Carbon 7's are better than the Micro Ones. But, the Carbon's are $500.00 more than the Micro Ones. If you cant get it for $2,000, the Fritz are your best choice for under $2,500 speakers to date.Edited by NAIM101 - 10/15/13 at 3:30am
