Linn and Naim speakers like the wall.

I'm also interested because I have one workable location, On a 7X10 shelf mounted to a wall. I've auditioned RBH MC-6C, Meadowlark Swallow, System Audio SA-205 and am considering NSM, Von Schwiekert VR-1, Soliloquy SAT-5, Ageis AE-1, Sonus Faber Concertino. The main problem is that I'm rural and don't live within a few hundred miles of any major city so auditions are difficult. I have a Linn LP12 and Parasound separates.
If (non-thin) full-range sound from a petite speaker is the goal, I have to second the Carolina Audio recomendation- really must be heard to be believed. The Konus Essense is a similar (but more expensive) design that has been well reviewed. They are less picky about electronics or placement than any speaker I have owned.
Spendor S3/5s also sound pretty robust for their size. Totem speakers might also work.
