Compared to the original price of S1.4, the LE version is also cheaper where I live. I think the S1.4 LE has a lot of competition so the price is lowered to match. Anyway you've had the 1.4 LE for some days now, how are they doing?

I think that the Naim N272/250dr has a lot to do with what you were hearing.

well compared to original version,LE is a bit more refined in bass,more punch,imaging and sounstage,stereo and instrument separation is better,floating in the air.High frequencies sound a bit different than on s1.4 maybe of new coating.I would say all this makes it sounds more musical

Advice: The DALI Zensor 1's have recently come to my attention, and I'm curious if anyone has compared these to the Emit/ DM/ Excites speakers and how do they compare. Are they more/less forward sounding than the Dyn's, and how are their soft dome tweeters in comparison? I cannot audition the DALI's, no dealers near me, so relying on advise here. Thanks guys!
I have and the Zensor 1 & 3, both excellent speakers for the money, that being said I have heard great things about the Emits M10 and from what I hear they are great bank for the buck from Dynaudio. Great reviews as well, frankly I should have went for a pair of those in my office verses the Xeo2.. The Xeo 2 where superb for what they do without having to buy associated equipment to use with them, but more likely for some thing to go wrong that is for sure.

Dynaudio,Magnepan,Musical Fidelity,KEF, etc...... Maybe New Contour's or Raidho next...

Dyn audiophiles...need some help. I'm moving into a townhome with a living room size of 17x16. The challenge is that it's not a "rectangle" shape to get my HT setup the way it is currently. So the idea is to move my HT to the basement AND go for Xeo 2 or Xeo 4 for the living room. So the help I need is suggestions/recommendations/comments on which is better considering I currently have Focus 260/210.


Will Xeo 2 or Xeo 4 give enough output and bass for EDM & Rock music coz for movies I will use 260/210? I understand it's not going to be as good as Focus XD and I'm fine with it. Idea of having Xeo is that I can have them on stands and they won't need a lot of space. Lastly, what about the placement of Xeo...is it similar to Focus and have to be atleast 8feet apart for optimal performance?

The Xeo 4s will hit higher SPLs. They also have a better-built cabinet and higher-quality drivers. If you're planning to wall mount, the Xeo 2 DSP is supposed to handle that well, and it also bumps up the bass at lower SPLs to make the speaker sound fuller. That being said, the Xeo 2s got quite loud during my demo. If possible, you should try to find a pair to listen to. If you add a Connect+Link or Hub+Link, you could add a sub which I'm sure would help fill out the lower octave.

If you plan to stand-mount them, you might also want to consider the Xeo 6 since it effectively takes up the same amount of room as the Xeo 4 on a stand.

I like the idea of having xeo 2 wall mounted. It takes care of the space problem.

That's my plan once kids enter the picture; just gotta keep in mind you'll have power cords running down the wall to wherever. If you don't spend the additional cash for a connect/hub, you'll also have some sort of cable running to the speaker as well.

I have a 2 1/2 year old son and YES he runs all over the place. :-) Will definitely go for a hub (worth the investment)...I read about it and it says that hub can be placed anywhere and the speakers will connect. Don't know if anyone in this group has a xeo 2 setup and can share experience with range and any challenges with the output.

Are you sure the Xeo 4's will hit higher spl's?I thought the Xeo 2 has 65 watts/driver versus 50/driver on the Xeo 4's.

Yeah. I thought the Xeo 2s would be louder as well, but it's due to the driver design and cabinet volume. The larger cabinet of the Xeo 4s allow for it to perform more efficiently.

Ok,that makes sense...i always wondered if the Xeo 2's were kind of undercutting the sales of the 4's,given the cheaper price and more power,myself i much prefer the looks of the Xeo 4.

Yeah. I'll probably be picking up a pair of the Xeo 2s since I have no interest in drilling into a pair of $2400 speakers. I know they make clamping mounts, but I think I'd like something a bit more secure. Saving $800 also sounds good to me.

The wall mounts of Xeo 2 are pretty sturdy...aluminum made. It has options of adjusting speaker on top of them...placement wise.

Oops, I meant to say that I'm going with the Xeo 2s over the Xeo 4s so I don't have to drill into speakers that cost $800 more. I'd use clamping mounts with the Xeo 4s if I ended up getting those.

I haven't heard XEO 2 but I'm very happy with my XEO 3. I'm sure the XEO 4 are nice but the XEO 2 seem to be more in line with the XD range as far as function. I would like to compare them to my XEO 3 in my room.

I think Xeo 2 will make more sense given their price point vs. performance value in the space I will have. I will have my Focus 260/210 combo in basement to take care of movies. Probably will add a sub later.
