ghettob170, I'll also piggyback onto what Jon and Ousooner said.
With the A5's, you will come to the realization that some recordings simply ARE sibilant because they are poor recordings. So, while decreasing your toe-in is solid advice, there are some recordings where the A5s will reveal the flaws to a degree that other loudspeakers do not.
This would be akin to having somebody wipe the residue off of one's eyeglasses and causing one to realize that their girlfriend wasn't quite as attractive as they originally thought. I have had this happen with many recordings.
