I've owned the Exoticas and SS8s, they might be a bit overkill for your listening room. My vote is always for a 3 way design, and I don't think you could go wrong with any of the Song 3 models. The Tang Band mid driver in the base Song 3 model measures very flat, and it is very well reviewed. The Accuton in the Song 3A is well-known, and a lot of people love its clarity (I am not in the Accuton camp, however). The magnesium Eton midrange in the Song 3E is an interesting new midrange that I'm contemplating in a new design.
I really don't think you could go wrong with any of those choices. If budget is a concern, then the Song 3 is undoubtedly the biggest bang for the buck. If performance is the ultimate goal, I'd vote the Song 3A or Song 3E.
