Either Coincident Total Eclipses or Legacy Focus 20/20. Both are considerably less than $5k and have big dynamic sound.

Thanks Jeffga, Jb8312, & Roxy54. I found a local dealer who carries DeVore and I'll be checking out the Nines next week. Also, I thought the Coincident Total Eclipses were designed for tube amps... Either way, I remember reading several positive reviews a few years back. Any other recommendations out there?
Good suggestion with the Coincident speakers.
You can get a new pair of Audiokinesis Jazz Modules for $4500.
Looking at speakers with high sensitivity ratings, and nominal impedances of 8 ohms with flat impedance curves will afford you the opportunity to easily switch to almost any tube amp in the future if you so choose.
In the meantime, speakers that fit this profile will be easy for the Plinius to drive.
I once owned the Plinius 8200 MKII, which mated nicely with Dynaudio 1.3SE's. Being a long time fan of Dynaudio, and given your mention of finding the Dynaudio house sound appealing, I would agree with Missioncoonery on choosing the S5.4 (or the S3.4).
The other suggestions of DeVore & Coincident are also very fine choices, and give you added flexibility down the road if you'd want to switch to a medium powered tube amp.
