    Has anyone compared the three bookshelves head to head? How do they sound with respect to:

    1) Soundstaging (depth and width)

    2) Imaging

    3) Tonality (warm/bright/neutral)

    4) Bass extension

    Thanks.

    The Vienna Acoustic Bach is a floorstanding speaker. The Haydn is their bookshelf unit.

    I own the Haydns and I like them enough to spend the money on the higher end Mozarts.

    Imaging and tonality are excellent.

    I compared the Haydn to the Concerto[the larger one],and I thought that the VA was better in every way except looks.
    Never heard of the Titus.

    Actually I had meant the Haydn not Bach. Thanks for correcting me Dave.

    You should add the Tetra Bullit, Amphion argon2, and the
    Von Schweikert VR-1 to your list. They are excellent bookshelf speakers also.

    I owned Concertos for several years. A fine speaker. I've also heard the VAs and like them quite a bit though they have a different character. I replaced my Concertos with ACI Sapphire III LE. Head to head, the Sapphires are superior to the Concertos in a number of areas. Transparency, detail, dynamics. You can probably get a used set of LEs for around $900 on Audiogon if you keep your eyes open. Or, a brand new set of their 25th anniversary Sapphires for around $1300. Everyone says the new ones are a big step better yet. If you do give the new Sapphires a listen, let us know how it turns out!
