OK, so maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm premature, maybe I'm just being silly, but I found a used (matched) pair of Klipsch Heresy II speakers on eBay and decided I had to have them.
The sound is transparent, and I'm not noticing any harshness in the reproduction. One thing I do notice, however, is that the transparency allows me to hear not only stuff that I didn't hear before, but also stuff that I can't quite make out.
For instance, in the last movement of Vaughn-Williams' fifth symphony (just about my favorite, by the way), there's lots of massed first and second violin stuff going on, with inner voices moving around. With the previous speakers (Camber 3.5ti), I just heard the strings and the harmonic effects; but now I'm hearing that inner stuff...but can't quite make out the exact notes.
Well, I suppose that gives me a goal to shoot for in my next speaker purchase.
