Perhaps I can help. Until very recently, I owned a pair of the new Kharma Midi Exquisites. Also until very recently, I had them paired with the Tenor 300 hybrids. That matchup proved extremely good for most styles of music, but I found that the Kharmas couldn't quite handle rock dynamics as well as I'd like. They did everything else fantastically well, but, dynamically speaking, they never truly convinced me--which, at their cost, and considering that I primarily listen to rock, was pretty disheartening. I wound up trading "down" (cost-wise) to the Von Schweikert VR-9, which, with its 15" powered woofers, should solve the dynamics issue. The Tenors are a great match with rock music--particularly the 300s--but, given my experience with the Kharmas, I'd probably try to steer you into a different line of speaker. Just my opinion, of course.
