Small Speakers for Small Room, Close to Back Wall?

Looking for a pair of speakers around the size of the Proac Tablette or similar that would do well very close up against the back wall as in a shelf type situation or, where width-of-sound-dispersion is less than stellar, mounting on some sort of adjustable device that would allow the speaker to be angled significantly downward (Height of placement will have to be 60" or higher from the floor at the bottom of the speaker.) Space between speakers will have to be slightly less than 4' unless I go to a shelf-bottom-height of 80" or greater from the floor (Working with 8' ceiling.). This is for a very crowded computer room, 9.5' x 12', where everything is fit together like a jigsaw puzzle and cannot be moved. Wide variety of listening tastes...lots of Rock/Pop, Jazz, and Blues and a dash of Classical. I don't need a lot of volume, just good musicality and I plan on powering these with something solid state in the 50 wpc range......the Blue Circle CS integrated has caught my eye of late. Sources will be a stock Music Hall MMF-5 turntable and an Apple iMac computer running through some as-yet-to-be-determined DAC in the sub $1000 range. I mentioned the Proac Tablettes because they're the right size. Someone else had suggested them in an earlier thread I'd started and I remembered auditioning a pair probably 25 years ago and being mightily impressed. A review I'd read of them from 1984 online this morning suggested placement of 3' from reflecting surfaces however. Anyone know if this is still the case with these speakers or if they'd be suitable to my application here? Any other suggestions?

Snell used to make speakers that worked well against the wall. Good inwalls with a sub is another good option.
I agree with the Linn Kan's. I am using a pair in my office not only against the wall, but on a bookshelf. I found these a few years ago used. They are an early pair....and well they do sound good.
Thanks for the suggestions, all. I'm leaning toward the Von Schweikert VR-1s and have pretty much zeroed in on a placement within the 9.5' x 12' crowded room -- They would reside on the 9.5' wall. The backs of them would have to be 22" from the wall. The bottoms of the speakers would have to be 37" off the floor. They would be 48" apart from each other on custom built extension "wings" vise clamped onto either side of a 48" Mayline drafting table and would be close but not equally distant from the side walls. "Critical" listening position would be approx 6.5' from the fronts of the speakers and "usual" listening position (working on a computer atop the Mayline table) would be practically between the things. My Turntable would sit approx. 23" diagonally to the lower/front side of the left speaker. Does this setup strike anyone as "good", "very good", or some degree of "bad"? (I know it's not perfect but am shooting for results pleasing enough to offset the fact that there's no room to place them in any other configuration within this space.) Thanks...
I really liked the Paradigm S2 V1's I had for a smaller speaker. They have a front port also.
