Frankly that's where the Raidho shine, as being more of a Nearfield speaker, they still had one of the better sounding rooms at the show, which is easier to do in a hotel room that's for sure.. But Lars knows how to setup a room along with Tyler and was evident this year as well.
C60's They did sound good.

do any of y'all know where to get these tweeter protection things online? I am going to set up my "old" stereo in our spare bedroom since I have upgraded everything in the last 2 years and kept every thing. The speakers will be my old contour 1.8IIs. I have 3 small kids so I need some protection for the tweeters.

I guess I havent shown yall the getto tweeter protection screens I fabricobled for my c4s. I'll snap a pic later so y'all can make fun of me.

I got them for my 260s from Mike M at Dynaudio NA. I just e-mailed him and that was it. Great service.

IMO Dynaudio should include them with purchase. Can't cost nearly anything to make.

GT: I just noticed your HK Receiver, do you still have it and or use it? I have the exact same one at our Lake House but I am replacing it with a Zone Amplifier and some Sonos/Dac instead. Going to give this receiver a go in my office, with my Emit 20's. Still debating getting a Special 40's.

Dynaudio,Magnepan,Hegel, Musical Fidelity,Belles and KEF, etc...... New Belles Aria Pre/Amp on the way! New Amp as far as equipment goes and for speakers the: Contour's 20's or Raidho next...

Yep, I didn't sell it. It's worth more to me than its current used market price. Besides, I have read that subsequent HK models aren't as nice. That said, I have no idea what I will do with it! I would be curious how it drives the M20s. My guess you would want something more for S40. Dyns love their power!

GT: If I get a pair of the S40 they will be in my Listening/Home Theater room and be used with my Belles Gear, so they are in good hands at 400wpc into 4ohms of clean power! My main system stays pretty constant once I make my decision on a speaker and or equipment. It might seem like I switch gear a lot but I have 4 systems here and 2 up at my Lake House. The other systems are not expensive and usually nice used gear, Arcam Soloist running my office, HK 3490 running my zones at my Lake House with a Denon in the basement doing HT duties. I think the M20 are fine with just about anything and the HK3490 is one of the better Stereo Receivers HK has put out in some time.
