I prefer metal stands that can be filled.  Sanus sf22 are pretty decent for the $ but they are pretty time consuming to fill up.Snag some iso acoustic iso pucks to put between the speakers and speaker stands.My opinion and best results come from a... 
I nominate this company as building best speakers!
Have you heard MBL?  Alsyvoxx?   
Bookshelf speakers for small room
Oh, and the NAD M33 seems to be well received.  The agon member that I bought my Belles from moved on to a luxman then the nad m33.I can also recommend Monitor Audio Golds.  I’d have to agree with “Another Bob”.  He’s got a nice little rig too!See... 
Bookshelf speakers for small room
I think Harbeth is a good choice.  When you mentioned near field, a coaxial speaker also came to mind.  And last, I have the Fritz Carrera BE’s and they sound really good at low volumes.  I have them paired to a Belles Aria and Schiit Gungir.  I d...

Kerr Acoustics speaker
2 nice looking speakers that I’ve never heard about...Pricing looks high... Since you asked that we don’t recommend any other speakers I won’t mention Salk, Joseph Audio or ATC... 
Critical subwoofer tip
Fun little story...  I was helping my brother set up and dial in his 2 Sumiko S9 subwoofers. I played around with them for a few hours and just couldn’t get them to sound right. Turned out that I had one of the subs 180 degrees out of phase and it...

Upgrading from Thiel 2.7 to Sonus Faber or Focal???
+1 Cal3713.I wish I had started measuring my in room response much earlier.  I just started about 2 months ago.  You have no idea what you are dealing with until you get some measurements.  The difference I have achieved in my bass response, the o... 
Economical full-range floor-standing speaker options?
+1 on the ATC SCM40v2.  Another member just bought a pair of those based on my recommendation.  ATC is awesome!  Possibly the most overbuilt drivers in hifi 
Shopping for new speakers-need ideas... Selling old DQ-10's...
Thats a tough one.  The 2ce is a great speaker.  In my oppinion, the 2CE will sound larger and have a fuller sound.  The 2ce will probably fill that space better.  The price difference between the Carbon 7SE at TMR and the 2CE is substantial thoug... 
Economical full-range floor-standing speaker options?
“Salk speakers are interesting. Their response curves are cut off at 200 Hz. Nothing bellow. Disturbing”Huh?  Are you saying that Salks don’t produce sound under 200hz? 
Economical full-range floor-standing speaker options?
Yes, Salk’s are awesome!  Salks finishes are really cool.  They tend to look even better in person too.  Long wait times though.  I haven’t heard the song 3’s but with those drivers and cabinet size I’m sure they sound damn good.  My speakers use ...

Those look like awesome speakers too nsm.  I was looking at the turbo s about a year ago too. Im sitting here listening to music this morning and even after almost a year, these Carrera BE’s are so juicy.  They just sound really nice.George, I wou...
