I just bought a pair of Paradigm Studio 20's and I've been impressed with now they handle rock and jazz, most of what I listen to.

PMC (Professional Monitor Company), Sonus Faber Electa Amators (s/hand), could buy any Celestion you wanted, Totem Acoustics, B&W Silver Signature (be careful with equipment and cable matching here)...all second hand you should be able to find something in the bookshelf world here. good luck and pls keep us posted!
Check out the two models offered by Soundsmith. I heard them both at AXPONA in Atlanta and was floored by how well and deep (pun intended) they sounded. Were I in the market for bookshelves these would be at the top of my list. (At the show I heard them play jazz and Stevie Ray Vaughan - very nice!)
The Vapor Audio Breeze should be considered in that price range. Granted I'm the guy who builds them, but I hope the price point will encourage more people to hear what the RAAL has to offer. I just spent the better part of tonight listening to a pair with 2 audiophile friends and they were both blown away. One said they make his Sonus Cremona Auditor M's sound boring!
