    I think the S3 MkIIs I have in a 15 x 18 room would work perfectly. These have a small footprint. Not being ported speakers, I doubt these or the A5s would overload your room nor would they be fussy to place. I wouldn't do the S1 MkII - not...

    If you're prepared to spend this much on electronics, why not a little more on speakers (even if you need to cut back elsewhere) - at least an A5? Speakers will have the biggest impact on sound quality.
