A new thread because I didn't want to redirect Steve's thread.
Any suggestions when limited space is an added requirement? Because of very restrictive space requirements I need desk-top speakers in a terribly unsymmetrical acoustical space - less than a foot away from a wall on one side. (This is obviously a very near-field environment so I'm hoping the nearness of the wall won't matter too much.) I'm willing to go up to a couple hundred dollars per speaker - more if that's the only way to get good sound (but I won't be happy about it).
