I use Wilson-Benesch ARCs with BAT. Great speakers that are easy to get into small spaces. Most of the WB line works in small spaces, not a small sound.

My room is small only 13 X 14. I do use a rel B2 which adds depth. The ARCs on their own are great. They are extremely coherent and work well at low and high volume. Great built and the least boxy sounding dynamic speaker I ever owned. Mono blocks would be nice but space and heat are a consideration. I use a 31 se with a vk-250 (bat pack) and vkp5 phono with six pack. Bat stuff is great. If you have a WB dealer definitely go listen.
The B2 integrates very well with my WB ARCs and I am sure anything else. I like the front firing woofer since it makes it easier to place the sub and it also has a smaller footprint. The thing that you are never prepared for with the rel is how much more depth there is. The soundstage opens up and you also get a greater sense of space.
I had a brief listening with a Storm. The B2 is definitely more powerful and has more speed. ( I believe due to the arm loading). My understanding when talking to people who know REL products better than me is that performance is shifted up in the Brit line over their respective ST series products (respective in terms of price Storm B3, Stadium B2 and Stentor B1)
