I believe BA VR-3's are actually quite bright. I have VR-2's, which use the same tweeter and midrange as the VR-3's, and it took a while to get used to it. The VR-2's replaced JBL E-50's that are on the warm side, so I was not comfortable with the relatively bright sound of VR-2's at the beginning. However, it was nice to have the details I couldn't hear before. So, I added a stereo equalizer (Sansui SE-7) only for the front mains (VR-2's) and tweaked the sound a little bit, and it was better. Then guess what? As I listen to more CD, SACD, and DVD-A discs, I ended up bypassing the equalizer more and more. There are two reasons behind this change, I believe.
First, speakers do need break-in. I hear a noticeable difference between the VR-2's right after I set them up, and now. It opened up a little bit and do sound more natural. The change is specifically from bright to natural because the tweeter starts out a little harsh, and the woofer doesn't push enough air at the beginning. As the woofer starts to push enough air and the tweeter settles in, the whole sounds starts to blend in nicely.
Second, I now know that there are just badly recorded sources (CD, SACD, DVD-A). I still have the equalizer hooked up because discs such as Emerson, Lake, and Parlmer Live (DVD-A) album still need some taming on the high frequency. I didn't notice it before with the old JBL speakers, but now it is so clear. The recording is just bad, period. So, try different CDs etc. and see if you feel the VR-3's are bright for all or just some. If only some sound bright, the chances are the recording is the one to blame, not your speakers.
One more side note. It sounds strange, but here is what I had to do to make the VR-2's sound right. I originally had them right next to the TV, so they were about 5-ft apart with my listening position about 11-ft away. It sounded really strange in a very fatiguing way. When I leaned forward about a foot, suddenly the sound opened up and sounded a lot better. Staging was day and night difference and the highs were buried nicely in the whole sound as they should. So, I placed them a little more apart (~7-ft), and now I don't hear the difference no matter where I am. I guess it was either my room or simply the lack of separation between the speakers that caused the problem. One thing for sure is that the placement makes a huge difference. I don't know your speaker locations, but play with it a little bit and see if it makes any difference. I think it is worth a try.
I have no doubt that VR-3's are way better than Klipsch RF-7's. I demoed Klipsch RF series a while ago, and there was no way I was going to hook them up with my bright Yamaha HTR-5760 receiver. VR-2's are on the bright side as well, but get along with my bright receiver nicely.
My 2 cents...
I learned everything I know about HT from this forum...
