Klipsch are highly efficient speakers. Almost any AVR will power them without a problem unless you listen at absurd levels. So find an AVR with as many bells and whistles that you want in your price range. For $400 you will have no problem, $200 will require a little more searching and maybe some features sacrificed. Some guys will probably post links to help you out. I have only had Harman Kardon AVR's, and I wouldn't recommend them at your price point unless you bought a refurbished one.

I personally would choose a receiver like the Denon X1000 or Denon X1100. The difference is the X1000 is the 2013 model and the X1100 is the 2014 model.

The amount of power you need is more so related to how far your MLP (main listening position) is, rather, how far away is your TV/Entertainment Console/Center Channel from the position in which you are watching movies or listening to music.

Sensitivity is relevant, but to better give receiver recommendations, it's better to know more about the MLP.

In an average sized room, the Denon X1000 should be more than suitable to power your bookshelves if crossed over at 80hz. That is what I would recommend. But I do not know what features you are looking for either. If it's just to get power to your speakers and have basic features and flexibility, that receiver should do a fine job.
