At the $2200-2400 price point for USED speakers, you may be able to find a pair of Vandersteen 3A Signatures, which is a terrific speaker at its retail cost, and almost unbeatable at the used price. I am using a Bryston 4B-ST amp to drive my 3A Sig's (and a Bryston 5B-ST for the center channel and surrounds), and am very pleased with the combination.
Your room width is a bit narrow, but the length is more than sufficient for you to place the 3A Sig's at least 2.5 feet away from the rear wall.
I owned a pair of PSB Stratus Gold I's retail ~$2800, but you can find them for ~1200 used. I highly recommend these, as they are wonderful speakers and an exceptional value. The speakers are well suited for your large room and will provide ample bass. Some of the speakers listed above, while quite nice, would have trouble with a room the size of yours. The PSBs are wonderful for stereo in all areas (imaging, soundstage, etc.) and are very, very nice for HT.
