It's actually a fairly large bedroom, but the problem is there's no parallel walls, that corner is the only 90 degree angle in the room, so I can put speakers against one of the long wall, but theres no place to listen from if you get my drift.

Does anyone know how much the new XD 200/400/600 is going to retail for? I saw speculation in a few threads here suggesting $13-14k range, but I was told ~$20k today, which seems quite ridiculous.

http://www.whathifi.com/news/dynaudi...dspeaker-range

What HiFi had the prices in pounds and if you do the conversion it is like this!

200XD = $7200

400XD = $11500

600XD = $14300

Roughly if that pricing is accurate. They been getting fantastic reviews so far.....


Guys some good information here, I guess AudioShark is the place to be.

Jumping Bean, I recently auditioned the X34, 260, and 340 myself. I fell in love with the 340, it had a really full-bodied sound, but they might need more power to realize full potential than you have on-hand. I didn't care all that much for the X34. It just sounded like a small speaker that didn't stand out significantly against other similar sized but cheaper floorstanders out there, if that makes sense. The 260 sounded great, nice tonal balance, and would probably do well in your listening room and available power. I think the 260 would be a great compromise if you don't want to swing for the 340's.

Ok thanks. I'm intrigued by the feature set on these, and I'm sure they'll be great, but I still think that pricing seems way out of line.

What do you guys think of the finish on these guys? Was doing more net search. The monitor looks pretty substantial. I hope I can get it against the C1 to compare.


Looks alone I am really digging these. Good pictures. That finish is awesome. This is where I will be auditioning Saturday. New location.

Rick,

I would throw the KEF Reference into the mix, they make a very nice speaker these days. One of the big 3 in England that got bought from the Chinese as well, I just wish they would start making more of their own stuff instead of buying up everything. lol Looks like a cool place.

I have done my best to support Dynaudio. Their sound is second to none. But after all of this and many years I am back to C1 as a contender again. After these years there has been not one new introduction Contour and above in new lines. I have had the C1s. In piano black. I want a new look in my super model. Does that make sense? And maybe an Esotar 3 (which might leave all wonder aside).


I don't think there is anything wrong in my logic. C1 MKII is on tap Saturday. Maybe I will return. I think my thoughts are valid and just sharing. I love the look but been there done that. If they blow the others away so be it. I will buy them.


Rick
Rick the differences I found from upgrading from the original C1's to the MKII/Signature was the new ones sounded clearer at lower levels but didn't go quite as loud. With the originals the louder you played them the better they sounded. As far as the C1 Platinum I understand that was purely a cosmetic change. For me the upgrade to the Signatures fit my personal taste more because I prefer to listen at lower levels.

The "focus" XD sure do look like they're based on the excite line.

Why can't we list equipment in our signature? How odd...

What's funny is that the dealer was powering the 340's with a 30~ wpc line magnetic tube amp and they sounded very full and dynamic. Is there some huge factor I'm missing that would allow the 340 to play nice with a 30wpc tube amp and not a 150wpc solid state amp? I know tube's don't have clipping but still...

Guys, forgive me for my ignorance but I see there is a plethora, 100s if not 1000s of Youtube videos on folk’s audio systems, from speakers, amps turntables etc….and the viewers commenting on how fabulous they sound.
Question…when auditioning audio equipment on line should I just rely on my computer speakers or a good set of headphones before making a purchasing decision?
Also is it best to play the youtube video in the designated room that will host the new equipment?

Obviously I’m being sarcastic here, but seriously I don’t get it. Yes some “look” great, but how do they sound......... as there are a lot of comments following the videos.... “ great sounding system”.. “amazing mid-range” ,“that bass is to die for” ???…I’m still scratching my head.
Maybe I need another coffee?

No sound meter but used the volume control level.

Tubes do clip - just differently. It has more to do with the even and odd harmonics.
