Adam A4V gets my vote from that list.

My concerns with the A4v is the almost 10 db port resonance at 1KHz. The A7V has one at 650Hz, but its not as narrow, and only like 3db.

Also, in those configurations, your distances also open up the option of Genelec as well;
Genelecs aren't for me aesthetically.


Finally, I'll throw in one additional element that would now be a critical part of my decision if I were to start over: what platform do I want to use for subwoofer steering and room correction. E.g., the MA1 from KH, GLM from Genelec, RME's ADI-2 Pro 2/4, etc.
Initially I'm going to go with a Topping D50 iii (assuming it measures well). Generally speaking I don't want to be locked into a manufactures system, I want to be able to replace components in my system as I see fit.
