Sensitive modern floorstanders in the price range you’re looking for with a highish sensitivity and a non-agressive sound seem to be somewhat rare. I was going to recommend one of Polk’s new Reserve series (R600 or R700), but they only seem to run around 88dB sensitive. Might be ok at moderate listening levels with 1 Aegir. I believe Crutchfield sells them and has free returns (minus shipping). Might be worth looking into. Check out the recent YouTube reviews for the R500 and R600. I’ll keep looking around a bit and let you know if I find anything else.
