All speakers sound best a couple feet out from the wall. I resolve this using cheap wood dollys from Harbor Freight. Move them in/out. Helps a ton with finding best placement in the room.
Go to Underwood HiFi and see his specials LSA 10 Signature, review pair $2500 discounted to $1299. Look for quality stands. EP should have stands so ask
The LSA-10 Statement monitor uses a custom LSA 1” copper beryllium dome tweeter with a compact neodymium XBL2 magnet structure and a shallow waveguide to better integrate with the woofer, a single custom LSA black anodized aluminum 6.5” XBL2 woofer, and a single rear mounted 5” x 7” sub bass radiator. Other upgrades include a far more sophisticated 8th order linear phase acoustic crossover topology with state of the art crossover components and upgraded internal cable. The LSA-10 Statement has an in-room response from 32 Hz to 30 kHz +/-3dB, and a 10 ohm impedance for easy drivability. The LSA-10 Statement has a high gloss Chocolate Rosewood veneer with a magnetically attached grille.
Size: 13.5" H x 14.25" D x 8.0" (baffle). Widest W dimension is 9.5"

Audio Bacon 2019 Product of the Year. They say:
"Now I don’t say this lightly: I’m positive the LSA-10 Statement or LSA-10 Signature may be an end-game bookshelf speaker for many. It epitomizes what we as audiophiles are constantly seeking. A speaker that is dynamic, has fine tonal quality – and is faithful to the nuances and harmonics of the art. The word “truth” was recurring in my notes."
Also check GR Research. He was offering a fantastic deal on some speakers. He is highly respected designer
i have not heard lsa’s except at a couple high end shows years back, in standard issue lousy sounding hotel rooms
there are a couple evidently experienced, frequent posters who recommend them...
i always wonder though... when folks say ’this speaker is stunningly dynamic’ then i see it is 83 db/w/m efficiency ... i guess we are talking near field listening? or we are typically running them with a run of the mill 1000 w amps for peaks?
I am late to the party here - and so many great recommendations on wonderful sounding speakers.
You could also look into powered monitors . A great choice for the room size you have are a pair of EVE Sc207 , https://www.eve-audio.de/index.php?page=SC207 . They would include the power you need and more money spent on a DAC/Pre for your Digital streaming experience. They are best with XLR’s so make sure the DAC has XLR outs. You will keep clutter to a minimum , maybe have a little extra for cabling and power filtration. Add a few cool room treatments for the sound and you will be ahead of the game.
My son has a pair in our recording room. He has worked in several well known recording studios and several engineers have bought them for their home studios. They are far from fatiguing and the AMT tweeters are not too full with a very clean clear and open sound. They look cool IMO without the odd shapes many Genelec’s have.
Having the choice of AMT’s , BE and soft dome tweeters as well as horns in my house I am surprised at the tweeter’s sound reproduction. The only negative may be the desire to have them 24 inches from the wall . You could adjust the EQ if they are closer or have a sound board behind. Sound boards can be a nice piece of art if done correctly.
