I saw these the other day while looking for a friend - almost bought them myself
Tannoy Eyris CD3 speakers
Tannoy Eyris CD1 speakers
Granted - they are a little older than you might want, but they are excellent speakers and employ the Tannoy "Super Tweater" and provide exceptional performance. They are a good match for your amp
Tannoy’s last a lifetime - I’ve had my Mercury Fusion speakers for around 10 years - no problems and great sounding - but the Eyris are a couple of models above the fusion - so much better imaging, deeper bass and smoother extended upper frequencies
BTW - those are Canadian Dollars :-)

Dont (initially) worry about matching to the Peachtree - rather match to your likes/dislikes and to your room, then filter by those that will work well with the Peachtree. In general, i would work the problem in reverse. Speakers, in addition to "good, better, maybe bad", have a lot of personal preference and room interaction built in.
I am only a little further down the same road. But, at least in my limited experience, I would also not worry as much about matching to the Peachtree. I would get the speakers I want, at least for now, If you are like most us afflicted with audiophilia, you will upgrade or change components sooner than you expect right now. But, having long-term speakers makes doing that both easier and cheaper. Before I could afford much else, I bought some B&W 804s speakers, and I have been through two amp set-ups since, and the speakers just keep sounding better as the components improve.
Thanks for the feedback thus far. I don't have the exact specs for my room so I will have to get those, but it is a medium sized seating room (to be very vague until I can get actual numbers). As for listening tendencies, I plan to use it for everything from Led Zeppelin to Bach, with a tendency towards more frequent listening to rock at moderate volumes (but I do live in a house, not an apartment, so it will get turned up every so often). As for location, I'm in Milwaukee, WI!
