George, this is being disingenuous of you. After pushing the Raidwhore D1s at $27K, both the Contour 20 and the S40 would kick the D1's a$$
For the money I agree. I never said the Ho's are cheap. BUT IMO I like the sound of the Ho's a lot more. To me they sound like a highly refined Dyn. They may lack some low end but the lows they do are a lot cleaner. Also to me the mids and highs are also more refined. BTW you do know I don't have the D1's anymore. They were replaced with D2's and now D2.1's. I have no plans of going up the ladder anymore. Larger speakers in my room have a much taller sound stage which I don't like.

As far as the grey they would be my choice regardless of the wood used.

I have two new products to market: Snake Oil and Fairy Dust.

You all know I've been on this price/pound kick, but these new products are so expensive that I have to price them at fluid ounces for the Snake Oil and dry ounces for the Fairy Dust. In keeping with the high-end cable market, I only put a 10,000% markup on these products. They work; trust me, believe me.

Everything is based on Quantum Mechanics. I have an advanced degree in Applied Physics. They work; trust me, believe me

How to use these new audiophile products?

Let's address the Snake Oil first:
Put a dab of Snake Oil on a soft cloth and lightly rub your speaker drivers and your chassis of electronic equipment. Also you can rub a little on your speaker body; it will add protection to the finish plus the other glorious benefits. Put a dab on the end of all your interconnects and speaker cables. Turn those $200 cables into high-end $40K MIT or Transparent Audio cables. Win, win. They work; trust me, believe me.

Your cloth will still have some residue left, so when no one i.s looking, dab the end of your member...instant hardness and gratification.They work; trust me, believe me.
It also works as a vaginal lubricant. They work; trust me, believe me.

Now for the Fairy Dust:
This product is a little bit more difficult to implement because it is so light and airy.
Take a 1/4 teaspoon and place it on an index card. Place it front of your component and lightly blow. This works for speakers and cables also. You will get a light coating on your electronics, cables, and speakers. Gently leave the room and close the door. Wait for at least 12 hours as the Fairy Dust has to burn into the substrate. Those $1000 components will now sound like $30,000. Those $3,000 speakers will now sound like $75,000 speakers.
They work; trust me, believe me.

Not only does the Fairy Dust and the Snake Oil dramatically increase the performance of your system (including your personal hardness and performance), the two products also create an aura around you stereo system that makes it look much more expensive than it really is. They work; trust me, believe me.

Disclaimer*
We did countless hours of both qualitative and subjective analysis. We threw out the qualitative because it just didn't measure up to our subjective analysis.

I forgot Price: We are offering an introductory price of only $5,000 per fluid ounce for the Snake Oil and only $6,000 per ounce of the Fairy Dust.

This is an incredible bargain at these prices

I have to do a new LLC. Currently, I'm selling these products through my ocean-front real estate company based in Utah.

Sorry Frank, that's copyrighted, trademarked, and patented.

Along with my Ocean-front real estate businesses in Utah, NM, Arizona, and Colorado. I'lll be opening some Eastern branches in Kentucky and West Virginia soon.

Business has been really slow, so I'm hoping my Snake Oil and Fairy Dust will compensate.

I think you'd do well opening a storefront in the mountains of Oklahoma and Kansas, and the broad farmlands in the Boston-Providence corridor!

That's the ticket. If I can't sell oceanfront property, maybe I can sell mountain property in Oklahoma and Kansas. Let's hope for the next geological upheaval.

Hey George, you want to invest? It's a sure bet. They work; trust me, believe me

Possible SQ upgrade...Xeo 3
Most of my listening is done from laptop (USB to transmitter) and iphone (3.5mm to transmitter) playing all types of files (from youtube videos to mp3 and hi-res files).
As Xeo 3 has a dac of it's own, would I really hear an upgrade in SQ if I put Dragonfly red into the mix? Does it even make any sense?

Unfortunately no. You would be doing D/A to transmitter, then A/D from transmitter to XEO3, and then D/A in XEO 3 again. During these conversions, SQ degrades.

Best option is to keep it digital all the way, and do D/A only at the XEO3, i.e. use digital inputs in the transmitter.

do you hear a difference b/w usb to transmitter and 3.5 iphone to transmitter?

I finally got to briefly listen to the S40's today powered by a Rega integrated and regular cables. According to the guy at the shop they were well broken in. They presented like a MUCH larger speaker than they are, I was quite impressed with how wide the soundstage was with them. I can see why people are liking them so much!

I also listened to a pair of X18's that were being run by a Simaudio Moon integrated with Valhalla 2 wiring and a Qkore, they sounded quite nice, but not as nice as the S40's in spite of being run with big dollar equipment.

Thanks for your reply.
Laptop (usb) gives noticeably better SQ than iphone 8 (3.5mm).
PS: Now I ordered Audioquest Jitterbug. Maybe it'll improve the signal a bit...

It wont since D/A is happening in XEO3, not the transmiter. And also Audioquest is a sneak oil company. TTB.
