Default Re: Looking for on-wall speaker ideas

Was thinking of looking into some on-wall or bookshelf speakers to place on either side of TV (prefer to have on-wall). I have been using the Paradigm monitor series speakers, but would possibly like to upgrade some either with Paradigm or something else.
I'am currently using a Integra DTR 7.7 (100wpc) for power, so I wanted to stay with something that would work with this. Any speaker recommendations you could give would be great! My budget is $1000-$1500. I have looked at the Paradigm Studio Esprit, but dealer did not have any to audition. (my room is 12ft x 22ft)
Both Paradigm and Definitive Technology make exceptional on wall speakers. Be sure to check them out.
Anthem, Conrad Johnson, Dish Network/JVC, Dynaudio, Infinity, Integra, JL Audio, Klipsch, Magnepan, Marantz, Martin Logan, Onkyo, Oppo, Outlaw Audio, Panasonic, Paradigm, REL, Sumiko, SVSound, and Toshiba are the brands equipment I currently use. I have owned/used and tested equipment made by just about any manufacturer you can name.
