I can recommend the line source speakers from Grandinote Italy.
http://www.grandinote.it/mach9 - en.html

During my last visit there I had the chance to listen to the Mach9, which is a real 98db line source speaker,
working well for all the SET friends in WBF :)

Will get the Grandinote Genesi Pre and Demone Monoamps soon :)

If you listen to the speakers, you should try the actual versions in alloy cabinet, I saw some old versions in wood.

I really like Arion Apolllo speakers with 105 db/W high efficiency.

But I am not willing to give up Lansche 4.1 speaker with pristine treble out of plasma tweeter.

I do not have enough room to place two speakers side by side at my listening space on the third floor.

I asked for my wife's permission to set up second listening space at living room on the second floor.

But she is hesitant to give it go.

Thus I can not move on.

But if you are serious SET Audiophile, I recommend you to audition this excellent speaker yourself.

As beautiful as your third floor is, it is NOT suited for a Dipole Speaker.
Unless you have another room to set up a Dipole System, I would give up the thought of Dipole Speakers, because they would seriously underperform on your third floor.

I had tried to set up WE big horn speakers on second floor if I get it.

You may be right in that I need more space.

But I used to use Apogee Signature in a space similar to my third floor.

The problem is that if two speakers are close to each other, it could be harmful to imaging of both speakers.
