A pair if Def Tec's with a built in sub would probably be a good choice. It will keep the cost of a new amp down, as well.

Yes, a Class D amp will work well; fast, loud and to quote Mapman "articulate."
"Since the majority of modern era electronic is well recorded...a neutral, detail based speaker with an exceptional, fast,transparent tweeter would be my choice...dynaudio, revel, b & w, etc...."
Agree, but it would be wise to audition some speakers. Depending on your front end, some of the current crop of speakers with metal tweeters will be very fatiguing and have bright sounding highs with techno/electronic. Just have to find the right synergy between components.
Thanks for the responses, everyone. Most of the responses seemed oriented around reproducing a club. I think I'm looking for speakers with a wide soundstage since the majority of my electronic music is subtle ambient/space.
Also, what if we changed the third criteria to bookshelf speakers hooked up to a Marantz SR5007 or similar?
