Well, he got a reply which, to me, displays nothing but world-class douche-baggery by Dynaudio.
The Sub 6 and 18S have DSP profiles built-in to match them with other Dyns. However, apparently the Sub 6 has profiles only for consumer models, and the 18S has profiles for the professional ones.
I feel that this limitation does nothing but to alienate owners, such as myself, who own speakers from both lines.
It allows them to charge a higher price from home audio customers than pro audio customers for the same product, which is pretty lame IMO. At least in the case of Sub 600 vs. BM-14S, the Sub 600 had nicer finishes to justify its higher price. The BM-14S also had XLR inputs while the Sub 600 did not, which is why I went with the BM-14S even though it required a special order and two month wait. But in this case, it seems like the two subs are damn near identical so Dynaudio has handicapped them with an arbitrary limitation to prevent cross-shopping.

In my mind, the jury is still out regarding whether Dynaudio's DSP speaker matching profiles are useful. In the frequency range where the sub operates, the room is dominant.

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

For NAS/Tidal/Spotify/Youtube etc I would use Chromecast to TV and sound from same optical or coax to irDac II. Or get rPlay, or AirDac for streaming (but I like Chromecast Ultra since I can stream videos). Also, you can connect BD/CD players too and use Arcams DAC for higher quality sound.
Thanks Frank79. Heard nothing but good things about the irDac II! Didnt realize its utility. I have a Chromecast already, so just taking the audio out to irDac should be enough for me.

From the two, i like the A39. Dont have a dealer near where i live, but will try for an audition soon. These are very helpful inputs. Thanks again!
