"So far, I've seen Monitor RX8, Tannoy Saturn S10 and Revel Concerta F-12's on here that look interesting."
I had the RX8's and I thought they were a great, all around speaker. If you like the way they sound, they would be an excellent choice. I haven't heard the Tannoy, but I did audition the Revel. They were OK but I would still take the MA. Its a much more fun speaker to listen to. In this price range, my personal favourite is the Vandersteen Model 1. If you've never heard them, you may want to try and demo them as well.
The NAD D7050 is 50 wpc Class D into 8 ohms. But this digital amp provides more power than 50 watts Class A/B. IOW, you've got some power in your system, but due to the size of your room, try to find some efficient speakers. (even if your listening area is 15' x 20'). You'll need to take into account the impedance curve of the speaker, or to put it another way, are the speakers easy to drive and will your amp drive the bass well.
That is a BIG room ... personally I would look at something like a Klipsch Cornwall. They are dynamic enough to fill a room that size with sound and should not need a sub with proper/careful placement.
Not sure how they would sound with a digital amp like the NAD as they were designed in a period that preceded this type of amplifier
Good luck in your search!!
