How about a used pair of Piega P-10's? They do it all and can be bought used for ~ $4500.00. Ribbon tweeters (front and rear) and they go down to 22Hz. It's a steal and I love mine.

That's a gigantic room that will make all speakers except those with prodigious bass sound tinny/hollow. Each of the speakers you mention is a very good speaker, but they all lack horsepower for a room of that size.
I rarely suggest this, but assuming you have two Levinson 332's, look at the B&W Nautilus 801. The Vienna Acoustics Mahler is another possibility. Both can be had used for $5k or less. If you can go up to $7k-$8k for a used pair of the original Revel Salons, that should also work.
If you want to be able to listen to all of your CD's you cannot get super detailed speakers.
I have B&W S800's and they sound wonderful with well recorded music, but other music can sound very thin or compressed.
I also have a pair of 20 year old B&W DM 3000's. I cleaned them up an dreplaced all of the capacitors with Claritycaps. These are unbelieveable speakers. When drived with my main system the do not get that very last bit of detail that the S800's have, but they have a warm tone (kind of like tubes) and just sound great with so much more music. They image very well, 3D and deep.
I have not heard them, but Sonus Faber may be what you are looking for. They are known to have a warm sound (which will make most of your recordings sound good). My only problem with their speakers is that capacitors need to be replaced about every 20 years. If you buy a 10 year old pair you have 10 years and time flys. They encase their crossovers in a hard plasticlike substance. You will have to replace the whole thing instead of just soldering in some caps.
