Go and listen to as many different speakers as you can. Search for showrooms within driving distance. Sound preference is so very personal, and can only be determined by each individual. Kind of why there are so many different speaker designs and builds. If we like flat response, then there would be a small handful of choices. Go demo every kind and type of speaker you can. One or two that get your attention will rise to the top.
I don't know if you have ever heard Panel Speakers before, but they can very very wide open sounding and unlike most box speakers. I know Best Buy might have some Martin Logan Electrostatics (ESL-X's) on display and demo. Give them a try while you are there.
Good luck and enjoy the journey. The process of discovery can be a rewarding process.
You probably already know this, but I recommend you take along some of your known and favorite recordings for the Demos. It can be quite revealing in comparison to Demo Speaker sets using the same music content.
