I paired the Klipsch Forte I speakers with the Rega Mira3 in the large living/dining room area, because the music room was too small for them. The smooth musical nature of the Mira3 suites the Fortes quite well. So the Monitor Audio speakers are now in the dining room as the holding pen. After switching things around I'm satisfied w/ the musical balance in the systems.
After a month of having the Forte speakers in our small listening room I re-installed the Paragons back into music system. The Forte's are amazing speakers but are not well suited for a small room as they need more room to breath.
Thanks everyone. Much appreciated. I find it easier to relax with a clean look w/o clutter and I'm finding great pleasure in listening to them.
The Rega/ Monitor system sounds great w/ movies and audiophile music from YouTube.
The '80s NAD/ Klipsch is an excellent match both from the same era so classical FM sounds wonderful.
The Mystere tube amp does everything well with both modern speakers as well as vintage Klipsch. The Klipsch has so much dynamic drive that music is alive w/ the tube amp, alas the room is too small so the sound is in your face at only 8' away. A large room would be perfect. With the modern Paragon speakers it may more audiophile in a truer sense but the liveliness and PRaT of horns can't be discounted.
I moved Klipsch upstairs to use with tube amp. Sound is very dynamic but the speakers are ultimately too large for the small room. I had it this way before and will try it again for a longer period of time.
