    tested a few, but the new Denon D-F100mC is amazing. I set it next to my Harman Kardon (105 watts/channel) and Paradigm Mk 9 series II . At anything less than wall shaking volume, the Denon and Mission speakers blow the much larger and more $$ system away. Sterio imaging is incredible. Off axis response seems to be >90 % on axis response. The speakers almost seem to be 360 degree sources.
    These small Mission 771 speakers produce more clean, tight bass than I thought possible. When placed not too near a wall, they do not pump or boom. The instruments sounds like instruments. Violin sounds like violin, piano sounds like piano, trumpet sounds like trumpet.

    Perhaps the HK and Paradigm aren't a good match? Also it's likely your room is better suited to the Denon setup unfortunately.

    More money doesn't always mean better sound. :lesson:

    hk + paradigm is 5.1 home theater AV system, very good for DVD movie. However, the entry level stereo (denon + mission 771) beats this high end AV Home theater on music.

    you may be being fooled by acoustics. That said, the denon with mission is no mug..... i wouldnt doubt that it would be quite capable. Are you by any chance feeling that the HK paradigm system sounds bloated and disorganised? This is what i have on occasion realised about my own systems..... playing with crossovers and speaker size settings normally can bring large improvements
