I had a chance to listen to the Osprey's driven by Aragon Pre-Pro and 5 channel amp, but the system and the room was not optimal for a two channel setup.
I came from the British type of sound and the Osprey sound a little bit different that was not to my taste. The mid was a little edgy and incisive for my taste. The treble is not as sweet and smooth as my Spendor. But it could the amp as I was told the Osprey's are very revealing and it sounds much better with tube amp. Maybe tube will help to soften them up a little bit. I remember seeing an add here for the Osprey and the owner comments that they are a little forward for his taste. I guess I had the same feeling.
On the plus side, the soundstage is very good to excelent.
i'm not sure how much power your amp has, but i would recommend you listen to the totem mani 2's. i preferred the mani's over the vr series (even the vr-4's) and the triangle's. i have not heard the osprey speakers. if you don't have a powerful amp or you don't intend to purchase one in the future, then i would not look at the mani's.
I agree with Ljgj. I also have the Avantgarde RX 20's though in a larger room. Your description of what sound you are looking describes what I hear from these speakers. I've owned Triangle Titus and while very musical, they are not on the warm side. I've heard the VRs and the Osprey and would say the Osprey would be closer to what you're looking for than the VRs, particularly with the close placement as Rgairns noted.
