Will the monitors be on stands, away from the wall, or will they be on a shelf/furniture close to the wall behind them? Will make a difference as some bookshelf/monitor speakers are better suited to near wall placement.

Regardless of the brand you pick, I highly encourage you to consider only 3-way designs. There have been some very good 2-way speakers created, but the design is fundamentally compromised.
If you are considering changing to tube electronics at some future date, pay very close attention to the impedance curve of the speaker you choose. The majority of speakers today have an impedance curve favoring solid state electronics.
Of course, you could skip the amp / speaker matching nonsense and consider active speakers.
