The Roksan might be a good choice for a bright speaker. It is forgiving, a bit to laid back for my tastes. Seems to make everything too sweet even when things shouldn't be sweet. I didn't think it had the best detail either. I thought the Cary was hard to fault for the money. Of the three that I have listened to were on my Moms Joseph RM-25si MK11 and the Coincident Total Eclipse speakers. I have no idea what they may sound like on your speakers. All three that i have listened to had the same characteristics on both speakers. I felt the FMJ to be the most accurate of the three. I also felt it to be the best, but this is only my opinion. May not be to your likeing if you feel you have speakers that are a little bright. I think you could tame this with a good rack, PC, or ICs. Otherwise I would go for the Cary. Can't help you with the others you mentioned. Have not had them in a system that was familiar to me. Have heard good things about them. Not to familiar with others in this price range.
