Beyond price, what amp and source do you intend to be using with the speakers. Also, what attributes are you looking for in a speaker. In addition, where do you intend to place these speakers (shelf, stands, near a wall, away from wall???). Listening levels? Basically, need info to start narrowing things down.
Earthquake for $2k you could easily get floor standers if desired? if you really want bookshelves that budget will really buy you some nice ones. I had some thoughts but I notice that you want them by the wall so my ideas blow. Looks like front ported quality bookshelves? I would not worry too much about the sight unseen aspect. Good stuff my not sound exactly as you want on some material but be perfect on others, even within the same genre.
