I listened to the Haydn's last Fall and I think they are a very good sounding speaker. I am using a pair of Paradigm Studio 40 v.3's with Musical Fidelity a3.2 integrated amp and a3.2 cd player. I was thinking to replace the Paradigm's with the Haydn's. Due to my room arrangement I need to stay with a standmount speaker. I was just not sure the Haydn's 6.5 in. mid-bass driver can fill my room (18x13x8) with the sound that the Paradigm's 7 in. mid-bass along with a 7 in. bass driver can. For my listening tastes- jazz, classical, acoustic guitar, some rock- the Haydn's have a better sound than the Paradigm's. BTW I listened to the Haydn's with Musical Fidelity's A3.5 integrated amp and a3.5 cd player to give me a realistic idea of what the Haydn's would sound like with my current electronics. The jury is still out.
