Considering Harbeth C 7ES-3
I would suggest speakers that are built to represent the recorded material truthfully before you enter into the more coloured world. ATC 11, 19, 20, PMC Result 6 (active) and Quested H108 are fine and affordable examples (all english). Also easy t... 
Considering Harbeth C 7ES-3
My experience of smaller Harbeths is that they lack treble. A lot. If you mostly listen to voices and acoustic wood instruments they might be fine for you. They will not give you any listening fatigue. 
KEF-LS50 with REL T-Zero? Anyone?
T-Zero are nice and capable desk top subs down to 35 Hz. I run them with a PW AMP that uses the ARC room eq system. Removes the lowest bass from the monitors and as you say cleans up mid-bass. Indeed very good results. LS50/50W has in my opinion l...

Add a simple Schiit Loki to your non-expensive dac. Very useable.

Speaker Volume

Schitt Yggdrasil Vs. Bluenode 2i (Shock!)
Not surprised at all. If you’d like to change the sound hearable in a simple way - buy a Schiit Loki. Very useable to tame "too hot" recordings. And there's a lot of them...
