Magico A5 or Sonus faber SERAFINO TRADITION or Harbeth 40.3 XD
Let me know if you buy them.  I would be interested if you find them as great as I do....or you can hate me for the recommendation.

My room size is 16.5 ft. x 12 ft.  The ceiling slopes from 8 ft. to 10 ft.  The A5 are powered by PS Audio BHK 300 watt mono blocks.  For me, this seems to be more than enough power.  I have the MAC 122 av controller being used as my pre.  They ar...

I just bought the A5 about a month ago.  Best speaker I ever owned.  Coming off the PSB T3.  Are they pretty.  Not really, but they are physically unobtrusive and sonically spectacular.  
Audioquest Niagara 7000 hum/buzz
I had a Niagara 5000.  It also buzzed very loudly.  I talked to Audioquest regional rep.several times.  He chalked it up to the very bad quality of the AC coming into my house.  He stated that he had the same problem. He said he would send me a ne... 
Putting your components inbetween your speakers.
According to Jim Smith , the author of the book, Get Better Sound, he states that you should not place your gear between your speakers.  It will have a negative affect on imagining.  FYI.

Speaker recommendation for mc452 and C2600
I have the 425 driving PSB T-3.  I love it.  Unfortunately the T-3 are ported.  They are approximately 27 inches from the back wall.  
Getting an outlet to grip better..
Replace it with an Audioquest Edison outlet and you will need a wrench to get the cord out.

The honest answer is ........no. I would not perceive a major difference.  Subtle. 
Need advice about upgrading speakers ( it might be the last one i own).
About a year ago I purchased the PSB T-3.  I just love them.  Very smooth, non-fatiguing, detailed.  I could listen to them all day.

Well, I bought the 5000 and hooked it up on Friday.  It has improved my system.  Bass is more authoritative.  Vocals more distinct and forward.  Never thought that I would say this, but there is more "air" around the instruments.  Noticeable audio...

I live in a suburb of Chicago.  When I am at the manufacturer's website I am lead to believe, that regardless of the ac noise, these to units would impart a sonic improvement to my equipment.  I read a favorable review in a print mag about 2-3 mon... 
Top PSB speakers .
I have a pair and I find them to be just so smooth.  I can listen to them all day.  Not fatiguing one bit. Detailed, maybe a bit on the warm side. Extremelytight bass. Highly recommended.  The best speakers I have ever owned.  These replaced Revel...
