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.
