dear what hi fi team, you describe treble plus midrange as sounding weak - did you try different stands ? (heavy metal stands versus light wooden supports russ andrews torlyte), different amplifiers ? cables ? all can influence the sound you hear from a speaker.
I have heard these now, as well has having heard KEF's competing R300 and I have to say that if WhatHiFi felt the top end lacking as suggested in the review this may be down to partnering equiptment or insufficient run-in perhaps?
I found the top end to be expansive and airy with much more emotion than said Kef R300s.
I don't think many standmount speakers compete with the Kef R300s outright attack and bass extension but I'm firmly in the CM5 camp nevertheless.
One way I could describe it is these speakers portray and convey, where the KEF R300s shout and pontificate.

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
