I do not have the Sonata III's. A very attractive speaker though. You say "On some of my CD's......" Perhaps you are now hearing your software (or hardware) as it really is. Your complaint is not unusual for someone who has finally acquired really revealing speakers - most people tend to blame the speakers for hardware and software problems. For something you can do now, for free, play with speaker toe in. If you are listening on or near axis that could be your problem. Point them straight ahead and/or cross the axis in front of you. If the latter helps you probably have reflection problems from your side walls to deal with. Another area to consider is whether or not your silver cables are now becomeing additive - many folks feel that silver cables have a tendency to sound brighter than copper cables (everything else being equal).
