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.

The Caterthun has strengths but we expect a more rounded product at this price
The Panasonic TX-P42GT60B TV shows that reports of plasma’s demise have been greatly exaggerated
