    Good day gentlemen,
    The boss(wife) and I spent April and May going to different stove shops to see as many different brands of stoves running as possible and decided on a XXV. We decided on the XXV for the fact it seemed to get good reviews on line and it was quiet running. Paid for the stove May 24th and have had the install date changed 3 times so far. The dealer still can not give me a firm date on the XXV but he called today and offered me a Lopi Leyden enamel that just came in. The Leyden is one stove we never witnessed running so my question is it a fairly quiet running stove? There does not appear to be many reviews on line of the Leyden pellet stove.
    At this point I am beginning to think one in the hand is worth two in the bush.
    Thanks for any input,
    Mike-In-ME

    Hello & welcome to this great site . That being said, i bought a Lopi Leyden in Skowhegan this past winter & am very satisfied . Never thought it would reach my upstairs but it did running no higher than medium . As far as noise, well there are trade-offs on everything in life. I have mine between my office<easy chair> :) & my TV . The noise is comparable with an air conditioner . Good luck & should you have anymore ?'s don't hesitate to ask. Muss

    Mike,

    I was in same situation. Decided on the XXV but I couldn't get one so went with 2nd choice Lyden. It's a nice looking stove and the dealer talked highly of it. It won't be installed until 9/30 so I can't offer any other info at this time.

    Thanks for the input,
    Went out to look at the stove today and decided to go with the Leyden. The wife liked the looks and the dealer has been selling Lopi longer than Harman and spoke very highly of them. Have an install date of 9/2 for a stove in stock instead of a floating whenever.
