A thin and elegant system?
If you want something stylish and different, without the box, I suggest you check out the Spatial Audio speakers. They can't be placed against the wall, but they sound as good as anything out there, and look much "lighter" and hip than your typica... 
Looking to buy floor standing speakers in $1000 per speaker range.
You owe it to yourself to check out the Spatial Audio M3 Turbos. I spent a full year auditioning speakers, and listened to pretty much everything in your price range -- Teckton, Zu, B&W, NHT, Magnepan, Def Tek, KEF, and many more. For me it ca... 
Speakers with warm treble and good bass
Give your Spatial Audio M3 Turbos a chance to break in and see what you think. I have the M3s (non-turbo) and have not had any listener fatigue whatsoever. I sold my Klipschorns after 17 years because of treble harshness that was causing fatigue, ... 
Tekton Pendragons
I've only heard the Pendragons once, at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest last fall. The entire time, the owner was complaining about how the phono cartridge wasn't broken in yet, blah, blah. I wasn't very impressed with them. I've listened to almost ... 
Searching for the ideal vintage bookshelf speakers.
If you can find a pair, it's hard to beat the Rogers LS3/5as. They are one of the most honest sounding speakers I have ever heard. Don't expect heavy bass -- and they may be pushing their limits in a 30 foot long room (unless you sit closer to the...

I recently sold my Klipchorns after 17 years of pure enjoyment. I’m moving and downsizing, and the new digs don’t have the corners I need. Prior to selling, I went on a six month odyssey (a very enjoyable one, I might add) of listening to every de... 
Speakers to hang on to for LIFE
I have owned my Klipschorns for 17 years and never looked back. I could easily keep them for life. They are an amazing and often overlooked speaker. I'm now forced to downsize and sell my K-horns. I've been diligently seeking a smaller replacement... 
Shopping for speakers at $1500-$2000 is a chore.
I spent the past 6 months diligently searching for a the best speaker I could find under $3,000. I've listed to almost all the speakers mentioned in this string. I even made a 9 hour drive to the Denver RMAF to be able to compare most of the final... 
Speaker decision $3000-3500...help
I've spent the past 6 months searching for just the kind of speakers you're describing. The search culminated with a visit to RMAF last month to compare the finalists in one place. My final choice may surprise you, but it's worth checking into. Fo...
