Need Help Deciding

I am in the process of trying to decide on some speakers. I will use this system for basically 65% 2-Channel Audio and 35% Home Theater. For music I listen mainly to classic rock (Beatles, Zeppelin, etc) and like a "warm" "full" sound to my music. I tend to play at high volume.

I would like to do a 7.1 system. Locally I can listen to quite a few speaker companies, however a lot that peak my interest are not available (Monitor Audio, KEF, Wharfedale, etc) and I have to rely on online reviews.

I have a budget of around $2000-$2500 for my 2 mains and really need to stay in that ballpark. I would like recommendations from you all.

Here is a list of my contenders thus far:

Monitor RS8
Linn Majik 140
B&W 683
PSB Image T6
Magnepan MG12
Energy RC70
Dali Lektor 8
Wharfedale Diamond 9.6
Definitive Technology Mythos STS



Do you have a amp/preamp/receiver yet? If so, what will you be powering the speakers with?
Yes, I have two Emotiva XPA-5's and was thiniking of bi-amping the fronts. I have an Onkyo TX-NR1007 as my preamp.
I would definitely recommend VMPS 626R's with the FST and auricaps upgrades. You can get them on Agon for 1500.00 or so. Fantastic clarity, dynamics, and have the ability to adjust to different rooms. VMPS RM-2's are also about that cost with more bass but less clarity.
Go with the Definitive Tech Mythos, STS. You won't be sorry.
