Any Larsen speaker users out there?

My listening space is on the cosy side, about 4m x 3.5m, a back bedroom that I also use as my study / workspace. I need some speakers that won't mind being placed right up against the back wall. From what I've read, Larsen speakers seem to fit the bill. My current amp is an Arcam FMJ A19 but that can be upgraded if necessary. Any Larsen users out there, what are your thoughts on your speakers?

They are going to be rare.
You might like to look at the Neat Iota Alpha and Xplorer models
Thanks. Yet to audition those. Of what I have listened to so far I liked the PMC Twenty5.21s best, might need to upgrade the amp for those, I'm just exploring before I commit.

Thanks for the suggestion. Not familiar with Revel but just looked them up. The review says they need to be placed well away from the wall, which would rule them out for my needs.

I wasn't implying Larsen are no good but they can be expensive and are difficult to audition, I can only find one UK dealer, haven't heard any myself.
