Thank you for the review and the pictures Marvey! Luckily Hegel is cheaper here in Norway. I've heard the H80 on a pair of Canton Chrono SL floorstanders. Alu/manganese tweeter, alu woofers. No thin or particularly bright sound there. I think it's more down to speakers being all over the place frequency response wise and synergy like you said. (I've read a shitload of anechoic measurements of speakers out of interest and looking for neutral pairs for mixing). Midrange Klipsch speakers are very popular here btw.
