Might be a bit tall but otherwise the new DCM Time Windows are crazy good for the cash!

Since you say you have the money and quality is object 1 with music listening in the majority (slightly), I would have to recommend the Paradigm "Signature S2 system". It's sound is absolutely staggering, and when compared with it's diminutive size; it makes it all the more mind blowing...expensive? Absolutely; and worth every single penny! Go here http://www.paradigm.com/en/reference...-2-17.paradigm for a look. If you don't care for that, then my second would be the Usher BE-718, or as it's known: "The Tiny Dancer".
Cheers and good luck,

Might get some synergy with the Paradigms since they and Anthem are from the same company.

I'm curious about the height, especially for music. IME, 44" - 48" is much better because this will (most designs) get the tweeter at about ear level when seated. Of course you'd need to take into account your height and seating arrangements.

You've gotten some great suggestions so far, here is mine (even though they are a couple inches taller);
2 RBH 1044-SE, great music speakers
1 RBH 441-SE, center
2 RBH 44-SE, surrounds
and an SVS SB12-Plus

This set-up would be very nice for your room. Plus you can get the speakers in one of 30 hardwood veneers and they'll blend in nicely with your decor and should please the wife. The quality of RBH speakers is exceptional. Your anthem gear should be a very good match, and the SVS sub should give you the lows without being too obtrusive.

Am I asking too much of these small speakers to fill a room with really good sound supported by a very good sub?
Not at all. Im using bookshelf speakers with a 6-1/2 woofer in a room that, including other areas open to it, totals 9000 cu. ft.

Re: small speaker advise needed, limited space

I fully agree the SVS package is a great system.
ALso have a look at the B&W 600 series, Great bang for buck. The 684 Theater package Looks good and the towers are just one inch taller than your size restrictions.

C'mon Jack... show him some speakers. Remember he owns Anthem gear.

Sonnie,
Are the bookshelf ML's supported by a competent sub a reasonable choice?
Actually ML does not have bookshelf speakers. IMO, I would not try to use any of their smaller speakers, which are more suited for wall mounting or to be used at a center or surrounds.

If you do not want to get into using stands, I would say the MTS-01 5.0 Full size speaker system would fit you nicely. Here's the Rosenut version...



I like the piano black myself.

With your size limits, you have plenty to choose from... do you have a spending limit or are you looking for whatever it takes?

Something less than 36 inches high, 12 inches wide, depth doesn't matter.
