I would see if you can find a pair of Fidelio Parsifal Ovations. You can reverse the lower cabinet so that they're front or rear firing depending on your distance from wall (and personal preference). They may be small in footprint, but in terms of resolution, soundstaging, and most other things, they're great. They're not going to nail symphonic stuff like a much larger (and we're talking over 2x the size) would, but they're not slouches. Plus, they look great, IMO.
Consider Zu Cable Definitions. They only need to be an inch from the rear wall. They are 101 db efficiency so you can get rid of about 395 watts if you want to. They are vivid, lively and accurate. They will play the incredible bandwidth of 16 hz to 20khz at 130 db and they cost $9000 brand new. It's a factory direct deal so you're really buying wholesale. And they only occupy a 12 inch square on your floor. I'm going to buy them ASAP.
