bookshelf speakers that sound good on an enclosed bookshelf

To all of the Wilson Audio owners:
I think my room size and speaker position is fairly well proportioned for my Sophia‘s. The room is roughly 45 m² (about 500 ft²).  It comprises one open space that is a living room and dining room.  My speaker position has Just under a 1 m (about ... 
Subwoofer for Raidho XT-1 sadly buried in a console built in?
I had a wisdom scs suitcase sub with a pair of Rockport Technologies Mira Monitors some years back. It was a solid setup. The wisdom sub has the possibility of being installed in a wall, but it will need to be a rather thick wall. I had mine again...

I just picked up the mobile fidelity version of aretha’s gold.  I usually shy away from greatest hits albums,  but I made an exception for this one. Excellent track list.  I didn’t listen super critically, but my take away was that the vinyl  and ... 
Led Zeppelin II
I have a Japanese pressing and I like it quite a lot. Some say they are not as good as others, but they are super quiet. I certainly agree with the quiet part - the vinyl is quite silent. As for the sound quality otherwise, I think is very respect...

Converter for digital out to analog in to Integrated
Check out the Schiit Modi. This may be a high quality solution for $99. 
What components might I check into that have a small foot print?
