I don't know for sure that it is a Dynaudio speaker but I suspect it is because it is presented in the same way on that retailer's website as other clearly Dynaudio speakers. As far as the price, I suspect that is for a single passive unit and without a crossover. By way of comparison, the 5-driver Dynaudio M3 lists for about $4500 each in a passive crossover-less version. So $11,300 for a 10-driver M5 doesn't seem out of line to me, if passive and without crossover.

Just an example of how the pro gear often presents good value as compared to consumer gear, despite what certain consumer dealers (namely, Alimentall) might claim.

Syswei is correct, bot only are these without crossover but without the required amplification.

Andy Munro makes the larger Dynaudio on steroids units.

These are ideal loudspeakers for a Tact/Boz megachannel extravaganza.

What I would need is a rearengement in D'appolito fashion, some under the screen center channels with the tweeters up top and shallow cabinet surrongs also d'appolito.

I imagine they could do it. Also listed is an "M6" custom main monitor, no details given, http://www.proaudiodesign.com/search...ro&advsearch=1 ...$13k each so possibly the same driver complement as the M5.

To borrow the expression...



All of the channels have now been upgraded to diamond midranges and tweeters which puts Kharma on top of any audiophile home theater speaker contender list.

I am requesting full 3D Cad drawings for the whole set from the owner who was very gracious to extending me an invite to the factory to be able to incorporate them into some serious 3d renders for theater coordination drawings.

I just signed up an excellent renderer which in one day did this ( early work in process rough layout):

Time to bump this thread for high spl home theater applications.

They ditched the ceramic composites across the board, and replaced with a more robust omega 7, their entire exquisite series should have 5-7 decibels more at maximum rating.

I am sketching a neox + system with these.

Cinermax...have you ever given a thought about the Procella P860? It seems to be a perfect fit for large projects requiring ultra high spl.

Given the correct space I will always use a Torus, having experimented with room torus acoustics I need the main left right to be VERY TALL d'appolitos with huge soundstage, having all the musicality available also helps.

I did not attend cedia, where I read this was shown, don't care for a Line array solution as it neglects the particular needs of the center channel over/under trinov remmaped as well as the height channels. The Torus room is a particular animal not suitable for line arrays in the surround as some must be voice of god, etc.

I feel that with the manufacturer's cooperation a TEMPTATION CENTRE LIKE can be made out of the EXQUISITE MIDI GRANDs:
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Without the gold cable (silver 12 gauge is fine) , and with the diamond tweeters reoriented 90 degrees, also the new omega 7 maybe with larger magnets etc, I give you my goal for a center channel Midi Grand Exquisite.



Except that I don't care about the looks as this is going on a TORUS PERIpheric SHADOW BOX a la Prometheus. So nextel black space alcantara like paint for that toxic for weeks stealth finish.




Also rather than the labb gruppen, some big ass krell monoblocks.;-)


What? Too extravagant for home cinema? I LOVE DIAMOND TWEETERS, If it is the best acoustical solution for the TORUS job (on which I am by default the only subject matter expert), that would be relative; certainly not in the most progressive booming city of the future where new standards for civilization appear to be set every 2 hours.:-D

I would love to learn more about these speakers.

My build thread

My 8 x RE XXX 18" Subwoofers, IB build
Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?
