I am, and have always been for most of my life, a headphone listener, due to the excellent privacy that i get from it. (no disturbing the neighbours/family) However recently i am finding headphones quite fatiguing and hard on the ears, and i'm now looking into a audio set up to complement my headphones. I have a really small room, so i am going for a pair of bookshelf speakers, and maybe consider a subwoofer.
I would really appreciate any advice for some components that i can look at for this system. My budget is below 1000 (soft) and 1300 (hard). I mostly enjoy rock, jazz, pop and orchestral pieces in digital format, out of my ipod touch and computer
