Coincident Triumph. Single driver are all quite efficient.

WLM Diva Monitor (97db) are great with small tube amps and room-wise extremely flexible paired with the Diva Control unit.
Provided they are in your budget?
It'd probably result in more pertinent recommendations if you specified a
budget. The term "downgrading" has a vastly different meaning
depending on one's bank account.
BTW, you can pick up a used pair of Klipsch Forte II loudspeakers for around
$600, and these are full range (down to 32Hz), 99db. They are often available
in the midwest and can be found on Craigslist or EBay.
This is assuming you are changing to bookshelf speakers because you believe
this size is necessary to enable some cost savings. Not necessarily so.
What's the motivation for bookshelf speakers, lower cost or space savings?
I love triumphs but sorry Celtic66, they are 2 way speakers. I'm looking at mine right now. Originally, Coincident had played with a concentric/coax single driver way before the triumph. I also have Conquests and Mini Triumphs. If you don't need much bass, the mini's are amazing. (my theater is coincident).
My second choice would be PSB stratus mini's.
I too have about 25 watts to play with. I sure am thinking about the Green Mountain EOS but not as a down grade especially from a Yamaha ns10m (he he). Also the deCapo I are on my short list. I'm just not too intrested in an overnight success type company, but that's just me. You might just hit pay dirt.
Intresting hobby we have here. Spend lots, itt'l help the economy! Happy hunting!!!
