Vinyl Stereo setup: Paradigm Mini Montor v2. old speakers ?

I am setting up  a small Turntable system for a friend, 
Onkyo Receiver
Technics TT

I have a pair of 25 year old Paradigm Mini Monitor v2, been in closet for 20 years.. 
perfect condition.

Has the technology changed such that a  small mid-priced bookshelf speaker will blow these of of the water?

She is musician, and listens to lots of acoustic symphonic genre.


Given the rest of the system those speakers sound like a good match. You will get a lot of answers to the question have speakers gotten better through technology, my answer is not always.
