I'm sorry I can't give you any experienced advice on the T1's but I can say this: if the T5's are even an outside possibility - get them. I recently got mine and I'm sure that they're markedly better than the T1's. They're awesome.
If you're gonna upgrade your speakers, it's wise to get the absolute best speakers you can afford
. That is the greatest bang for the buck in terms of improving your sound (room treatments go a long way,too, and some argue that they are even greater bang for the buck).
In addition, I've found speaker upgrades to be the most challenging from a budget-discussion-with-the-wife perspective, too. Once you get this new pair, whichever pair you get, it'll be a tough campaign to upgrade them again anytime soon. You'll probably be stuck with whatever you get for a loooong time.
Get the T5's, even if you have to wait a bit. You'll be glad you did.
Plus you know that if you didn't, you'd always be wondering...
