Thank you. I experimentally ordered three CFL bulbs with CRI=93. I'll see how they'll perform, and if they do well, I'll replace everything in my house.

One thing I don't like about CFLs is that after a month or so they are very slow to reach full brightness (taking 5 minutes or so) and as they age, their maximum brightness goes down noticeably.
