I would suggest you listen to the KEF LS50s. Not quite electrostatic, but close, and an excellent speaker for a small room.

IMO the KEF LS50 speakers, while excellent for a small room, do not sound at all like any electrostatic speaker I have ever heard. But they are nice bookshelf units.
I recently purchased a pair of Larsen 6 speakers for my smallish listening room. They are small floor standers; designed to be placed right up against the wall. They are excellent and provide extraordinary sound that I would describe as a cross between a planar (wide soundstage) and dynamic box speakers (musical and bright). I like 'em.
Thank you for all the responses. Many of these I will have to look up and I do have to keep the price down.One of the reasons I moved into a smaller place is that money is tight. Also, I live at least a 3 to 4 hour drive from any decent stereo store and I do want to preview before I buy. I have an old pair of Sansui SP-3500's that I can use for the pinch until I find something.Please keep the references coming so when I do drive to the city I can set up a number of listening sessions. And ,yes, I know that what I hear in one place won't sound the same in another due to room dynamics, etc.
