New to the Dynaudio club!

I have been wanting a pair of Dynaudios for years now and about a month ago I scored a great deal on a pair of S3.4's and love them. They match really well with my current gear, Yamaha 5100 and Wyred4Sound amp, 500W modules in 8ohm. Then about a week ago a pair of used S5.4's went up on Audiogon and I scooped them up. I got them for about $1K less than my S3.4's. I was so excited to get them but when I finally got them hooked up, I was completely let down. They are so flat and not engaging at low to moderate volumes but as you turn them up they blossom into the beasts I expected. The problem is that I don't listen to music that loud. By the time the tweeter opens up the bass it completely pressurizing my 13x15 foot room, even with the bass port plugs installed.

Please let me know if this is a characteristic of the S5.4's or is it a problem with my Wyred not driving them properly. I would really appreciate any input from you. Thanks

I don't know where you've gotten this information - but it's wrong!

M.v.h.

we did tell you XS would be fine. But you wouldn't believe.

anyway 202/200 will be fine for a Focus 340. Agree with Callas and No quarter.

the Nap 200 can power speakers that even 250.2 struggles with, as it is not a regulated design.

This information comes directly from the manufacturer. Perhaps something got lost in translation. I will verify but I am sure Otto can clarify.

Overall it is typically not power that destroys speakers. It is more likely a lack of power that has killed many a driver.

I do know that if a company manufactures OEM for cars the quality control is extremely high.

I know it sounds great and looks great.....but can we communicate with it? If not it is useless:)

Um what ?


the manufacture pushes 1000-Watts into their speakers before they leave the factory ? ( i don't think that's correct )

Actually I verified that this is accurate. 1000 W millisecond burst in addition to following

Actual measurements of a frequency response include one for the tweeter dome (just the dome), one for each complete driver (including the tweeter again), and then for each complete speaker. This means a tweeter dome is actually tested three times. This can be compared to many competitors only spot testing.

This is currently true for ALL home speakers, from Emit to Evidence. The other various checks vary from line to line, for instance there are many more visual checks of a Confidence cabinet than for an Emit cabinet.

Another fact that often impress people is that a driver can be scrapped even if it measures fine. Some kinds of buzz and rattle don't show up on a frequency sweep, but will still cause a driver to be scrapped by the tester. This is why a frequency sweep counts as more than one "check"...

I know it sounds great and looks great.....but can we communicate with it? If not it is useless:)

Yeah, I was told too that Moon was the perfect match for the Dyn's, yet it failed miserably as it wasn't much better than the cheap Arcam to my ears.

All I can say is - he needs to audition that combo before buying and believe his ears. Perhaps it will be great for him, perhaps not.
