As a pro musician, I am very fussy, but don't wish to put a lot of money into home speakers - yet I need accuracy and a musical image without a hyped top end.
Orb Audio is very good and teeny: http://www.orbaudio.com/
I also recommend Monitor Audio speakers: http://www.monitoraudiousa.com/range.php?range=4
I have monitor audio two R90s and one R180 with an Orb sub for the front and two Orbs in the back on tiny stands. Very musical and lovely sound. but you can't go wrong with either of these companies' products -
