Thanks again for the input. I've stayed away from replying here the past few days as I feel a need to make my choice my own. I've had some great listening with the misos and their musicality cannot be denied on anything I've played. The misos bass can get big in my room; however at low volume they work well, contrary to the Sttafs which like some watts to get energized in the room. At this point in my life I think that lower volume listening is the best for my ears in the long term.
I've arranged with the dealer to return the misos and demo Majik 140s with the upgraded aluminum plinth. Hopefully the 140s will capture the same musicality of their big brother and have bass that will work better in my room.
I should add that I removed the LP rack from between the speakers. No worthy difference in the sound, maybe a bit more depth to the soundstage, though I'm inclined to say that the bass might be slightly tighter with the rack in place.
