I just got back from JS
Audio where Joe threw a post-renovation party this evening. Where he use to have four smaller rooms, he now has two larger ones. He also busted out the ceilings to create a far more airy and inviting environment. Congrats to him.
But I have to say the focus tonight was on Wilson Audio, Boulder, dCS, D'Agostino, and Nordost products. His larger of the rooms had about $600K of equipment in it, including a pair of Wilson Alexandria XLF speakers. Anyway...insane equipment and insane prices. I was talking to the dCS guy from London and he was talking about he views NAIM as mid-fi. The Vivaldi dCS DAC starts at around $35K!
In regards to Dynaudio, they are Joe's "lowest-end" models. He had a pair of Confidence C2 Platinum speakers and he sells them at around $17K/pair as Wilson doesn't have anything that inexpensive. He also had a pair of Confidence C1 Platinum speakers. The rest of his Dynaudio stock will be returned to the store as all renovations are completed.
