Best speakers for about $2000 a pair
Heard a pair of VMPS 626's. About $1200. Tremendous imaging. Easy to drive and would be terrific with a decent tubed amp.

I just heard some terrific speakers that might be suitable. They are bigger than monitors and smaller than floor standers. VMPS 626. Check out the reviews. 
Van Halen or Van Hagar

Amp to power Triangle Luna speaker
I have a similar Triangle and use a Unico Secondo which can be had for perhaps just under $2K. Tubed preamp section and a 140 watt solid state amp section -- lovely sound.
