After my divorce approx. 1 yr. ago (hooray!), I got back into stereo stuff. I purchased a used pr. of Klipsch Chorus's. They are good rock and roll speakers, but that is about it. The only decent sound I've heard from any Klipsch speaker is one that uses the big K-horn midrange; it is much mellower. Otherwise, the Klipsch midrange and esp. tweeters just don't have the detail and really sizzle, i.e., listening for more than 20-30 minutes at a time will fr your brains. I heard a pr. of old ADS L1530 studio monitors at the same store I bought my Chorus's from about 4-5 months after buying the Chorus's. At first, the sound was so different that I didn't like the ADS's, but the reality of the situation was that, because I was used to the glare and sizzle of the Chorus's, the neutrality of the ADS's didn't sound exciting initially. After another 1-2 hours of listening to the ADS's, I was convinced the Chorus's had to go. Now, don't get me wrong; the L1530's are not God's gift either. In fact, I'm selling them to have a pr. of custom speak's made with all Focal drivers. BUT, the moral of the story is, go listen to as many diferent models of speakers as possible. If you want something that you will want to listen to for extended sessions and not grow bored with r/t lack of detail (and because your ears are fried), go with a more neutral sounding, detailed speaker. This is esp. true if your musical tastes are wide ranging. If you listen to jazz or classical, avoid the Klispch stuff; they just don't make it. If you want a volume rock and roll set-up, then maybe the Klipsch are OK. If you do go with the Klipsch, skip the 20's and make a big step up to the KLF 30's. You will need to match your electronics with the Klipsch (as with any system) to try to neutralize some overly harsh, strident sound made b the horns. I've never heard tubes on Klipsch speakers, but this might be worth a listen. Actually, for awhile, I was running an ARC SP6C1 tube preamp and D52B solid state amp on the Chorus's; this was a MUCH better match than the NAD power envelope equip. I initially had on them. Good luck.
