Of these five speakers, which might I like best?

They'll be used exclusively for music in a 13x19 room, wall-mounted, and driven by a 55 wp/c NAD amp. I have the option of coupling them with a passive subwoofer, so I care mostly about realism, clarity and detail above 100 hz. I listen mostly to rock and some jazz. Have heard good things about each speaker, and have eliminated several other choices in this price range, including offerings from NHT, B&W and Paradigm.

Anyone wish to chime in? Much obliged.

In order of MY preference.

Ascend CBM-170...superb imaging and clarity and I think a better performer than the Axiom or PSB.

Axiom M2/ slouch on staging and clarity but I prefer the M22. A matter of personal preference at this point.

PSB...nice set of speakers, specially when mated to the NAD, but, lacks body and detail when compared to the Ascends and Axiom.

you have a tough choice to make:-)
