Summary: I had been looking for new speakers for almost 2 years. I was waiting on a move and on saving some money. I listened to everything I could find from Dynaudio 42/52 to vienna Acoustics Hayden. I never found the right sound at the right price. I am limited to a bookshelf speaker due to space constraints. After hearing these locally(1.5 hour drive), I decided to give them a shot but ended up buying online cause the store would not come down nearly enough.
