A new pair of Vandersteen 2CE Sig III's would be a great choice fitting both your stated preference to avoid hyper detail and would be driven easily by your tube amp.  I drove a pair of earlier 2CE Sigs easily with the Music Reference RM-10. Were it me I would ignore the constant naysayers who seem to have a lot of opinions but no suggestions or options.  As for "vintage speakers", the best of the bunch are well over priced in todays market and wouldn't be a match for your gear anyway.

Oops, Ok so I ended up with the Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Baby Grand. Very good speaker that is NOT IN YOUR FACE. Its laid back easy listening. Allows me to work stress free on my own speakers.

  Then I found the Scanspeak  D2905-9500 and it changed my life... for a while  :D

Yup - a great tweeter 20 years ago. Can certainly still hold its own. I had the 9300 in a pair of speakers and loved the sound from it.
