So if i may ask..what album keeps turning back on your TT, cd player, jriver playlist or tidal and makes your Dyn's worth it all?

Amen to that! Back in the day that's all I wanted was Klipsch, that is until I listened to them for more than 20 minutes...

I picked up the Lim Ultimate 3 disc set at AXPONA, quite impressive!

My experience with the Focus 160s is that if you toe them in so you're listening on the tweeter axis, the treble is a little hot. If I point them straight ahead, the top end rolls off naturally. Perhaps the same is true with the S40. I have them toed-in a little bit to widen the sweet spot.
Dyn's have a very wide dispersion area in the highs. It's why most prefer them with no toe-in. And I'll say if toed in they have the potential of sounding a bit edgy.

I didn't last half that with my cousin's Klipsch R24-F speakers. Nails on a chalkboard are smoother and more pleasing to my ears.

Point taken. And we can be sure there were a great many mentions of the K brand before that, with few if any at all heaping any praise.

FWIW, I can point my C2s right at me and they don't sound bright or edgy. If I do that with the Focus 160s, they do sound a little bright although I hesitate to say edgy.

All else being equal, I would prefer to toe-in the speakers because it creates a wider sweet spot, but it's more important to get the top end balance right. Also, I've had some speakers in the past (not Dynaudio) that needed to be pointed straight ahead or close to it in order to break the soundstage free of the speakers.

HT: Dynaudio C2, Contour S CX, 2x BM14S, Aperion surrounds, Simaudio Titan, Marantz AV8801, Oppo 103, Linn Majik DS, and a Pioneer Kuro
Stereo: Dynaudio Focus 160, Simaudio W-5 LE or Luxman M-600A, Linn Akurate DSM, 2x Rythmik F12G
Other interests: motorcycling, skiing, being active
