If you are looking for a warmer, fuller sound the Abbys would be great for your Sophia Baby. The Omega Super 3 are incredibly fast and detailed, but do not offer a warm and full sound at all. A good inbetween alternative might be the Horn Shoppe Horns: They sound fuller than the Omegas, but are about as quick. I just listened to them with a First Watt F1 and was quite impressed. It gave a full quick sound with good bass. With your Sophia they might need some corner loading and I am not a 100% shure about the match but is would be worth a try. The Horns can be ordered on trial for 30 days and are just a little more than you aimed for. My favorite is still the Abbys, but the Horns were quite impressive.
Jalapeno, the Sophia Baby uses 6P1T tubes not EL34 tubes and has only 10 W of output power. While this might be just enough to drive the Triangle or Europa, a little more overhead might be desirable. I heard the GMA Callisto (slightly more efficient than the GMA Europa) on 18 SET Watt and was quite impressed though.
