Best speakers for max. $3000?

  I would like to upgrade to some new speakers and I might have a maximum of $3000 to spend if all goes well.
I don't care if they are new or used but my real world experience is limited so I am asking the experts!   I know it is subjective.
  I have Mirage OM-7s now with a HSU sub.  My amp is a Bryston 100B SST.  
Also, I have a chance to buy a set of Thiel CS 2.4s. I plan to try them.   Thanks for any advice!
Thanks for the replies! My room is about 20 feet long. Half of it is 20 feet wide and the other part is 14 feet wide. Sort of an L shape.
As for music I listen to everything from jazz to Meshuggah and everything in between. Allman Bros to Yes. Not much classical.
I use a VPI Scoutmaster II table and a Cambridge Audio cd transport that's relatively inexpensive. The DAC is a Bryston BDA-1.
Currently I keep the Mirages around 3 or 4  feet from the back wall and around 4 feet from the sides.
The room has some soft stuff on the front and rear wall to try and help the sound a bit. It seems like a fairly good room as long as you stay out of the corners!
And I listen at moderate volumes because I find things get a bit harsh if it gets too loud. I'm not sure if the harshness is the speakers or the room.
    I'd play it louder if it stayed smoother.   Thanks all!
I just upgraded from the Mirage OM-10's to the Focal 936.
All I can say is I love em.  Go audition them someplace.  I thought the OM 10's sounded good.  Well, their just isn't any comparison what so ever.
Couldn’t hurt to check out either Tekton Pendragons (aprox $2,000) or the Double Impacts ($3,000), and that includes shipping within the US. I listened to a pair of Thiel spkrs (among many others) also before going with a pair of Pendragons. .
Choosing the right speaker isn’t easy. 
Best of luck to you!
