I recently put in a pair of the Polk RTS 100 ceiling in a fourth system in my house (living room). The electronics are tubed SET, DAC, and sonos, all hidden in a cabinet. I absolutely love the sound of this system and the Polk speakers( I have not demo'ed any other in ceilings.) I think the Polks are hard to find since they are no longer made. However, a friend found a pair after her my system.
Hope this helps.
I helped a friend of mine with very high ceilings do his system and we used Linn Sekrets. They weren't inexpensive but coupled with a subwoofer and some time and setting the subwoofer to match the correct crossover point, it produced a very open, non-directional, full bodied sound stage.We had looked at Klipsh, Def.Tech and Paradigm before deciding on the Linn. Another brand you may want to include in your evaluation are the Revel Speakers. One abstacle that you encounter in this process is placement and wall cavitey prepartion. If this is a new home and the walls haven't been drywalled yet try to determine location and make appropiate modifications to the space now and your rewards will be clearly evident.
I've got the Linn Custom 104C in-ceiling speakers for my surround speakers in my HT system. They are a step-up from the Sekrits, I believe, and they sound great. However, I can't say I did a lot of shopping around. I already had Linn speakers in front and saw these on an open-box special on A'gon classifieds. However, they have the same 2k array drivers as the Linn Majik speakers (i.e., they are a 3-way speaker design).
That all being said, there are tons of good options available out there.
