Really not happy with my bookshelf speakers

I recently purchased a pair of Q-Accoustics 1010is to go in my office so I can listen in there, after finding an old Technics SU-VZ220 that still works at a friends house in storage. I connected the two together and expected great things after hearing how the unit sounded through the speakers I use in my main system, (I would buy those again but this room is simply too small) however after wiring them up, I get sound that sounds roughly similar to the crappy old pc speakers I am replacing! I have returned said Q-accoustic speakers, but am looking for something at a reasonable price, that will provide a more warm and thorough sound.

I have attached a rough copy of the listening room's design to help:

what's your budget? dynaudio dm 2/6s might be worth looking at, you can place them pretty close to a wall, and they sound great. they'd cost around £450ish..

I'd rather not go that high, but I can if I really need to

how far from your rear wall will the speakers be placed?

I bought an 2nd hand Technics amp for my father a couple of months or so ago & put it through my rear surround speakers to test the amp out. They are a pair of Dali Lektor 2's & it sounded great to my ears.

The Lektor 2's are front ported, mine are in the corner of the room, almost against the wall, on shelves & sound good to my ears. You can easily pick a pair up for under £200 now they were about £300 originally.

My father is currently running a pair of 1971 Rodgers floor Stander speakers off the Technics amp i bought him & he recons thats the best he's ever heard them.

Regards..

yea 2" is pretty close, atc scm 7's should be fine there, great speakers too, they cost £500 though..

the dm 2/6s may be ok too, but i'm not sure (have never had my speakers that close to the wall)..

The 2" thing is due to a lack of space in the room (see measurements on the diagram)
