It should take you a couple hours on one day to prep everything. A couple hours the next day to do the spraying.

I would look at your weather forecast and do the spraying on a fairly warm day so you can open a window.
Ya, I'll do it my cheese shop when I have some down time, customers will be wondering what's the new special I have in, and I'll just tell em it's la "nitrocellulose" from France, très fort est très bonne (but sold out).

Back in the early seventies while doing my degree in Fine Arts one of my studio majors was print making, intaglio/photo etching, besides the inks….. lacquer solvents and acids where “de rigour”, mind you we had no vents… masks ….so lived with the fumes.. I know… no comments.. but with the few brain cells I had left at the end of the day I’d crawl home and listen to my Dynaco 25s which of course inspired me years later to try out the Dynaudios. (keep in mind for a number of years both manufactures were thought to be one and the same, even though Dynaco originated in the US but their loudspeakers were manufactured in Denmark)

FYI. Interesting convo going on via the Dynaudio Facebook page...

Quote:
One of our Facebook friends Danny Tech, asked us this question:
"Can you give me a description of the sound between 2 Dynaudio speakers. The Contour s 3.4 and the Focus 380.
They are virtually the same size and same with price according to the data on the internet. I have much interest in the speakers from Dynaudio.
With mention, I work with the NAD Master series and as cables WireWorld."

Roland, our Product Manager has given him this answer:
(please give us your comments, if you have anything to add)

"Dear Danny

First of all we always recommend to listen to the loudspeakers at your nearest Dynaudio dealer, because no facts and numbers can ever explain the actual sound quality of any loudspeaker. Even with similar specs, speakers will sound differently. It's a bit like wine tasting vs. number of points in a wine list...

In general, the Focus 380 gives you larger woofers and bigger cabinet volume, for a deeper and more powerful bass. There's also a mid-driver for clearer, more open midrange. However, your rooms size and room acoustics should be capable to take a larger speaker and this amount of bass. Sometimes a slightly smaller loudspeaker can give you an equally deep yet tighter and more precise bass, and a better sound experience overall. If your room is up for it, the Focus 380 will be deeply impressive with all kinds of music and on higher volume levels.

The Contour S 3.4 has a slim yet deep cabinet and two smaller woofers, but despite slightly less bass depth it features higher-grade woofer and tweeters, higher-grade components on the crossover, and an advanced low-resonance front baffle. The Contour range also features a specific drive-unit arrangement on the front (see the tweeter below the woofers) for a certain time alignment and a certain sound radiation. All this means the Contour has a more refined, matured, smooth sound quality, with very vivid sound staging and imaging between the two speakers.

So in short, it depends a lot on what fits your room, and what sound qualities you are searching for - the answer lies at one of our Dynaudio dealers.

By the way, the NAD Masters M3 and M2 are excellent amplifiers and will drive both speakers well.

/Roland - Product Manager"

Yep, for the last ten years…long story as it was a 180 ° quantum leap from being a digital imaging/computer specialist/consultant, should have maybe opened a bike repair, audio shop or got into home renovations. But like 99% of the musician/artists ones got to make a living elsewhere…. maybe I should of followed my mom’s advice and got my degree in engineering instead of Fine Arts, but that was long long time ago....c'est la vie.

CD, thank you very much for your nice and detailed listening impressions of the two Pass amps. I have long been interested and perhaps one is in my future someday. I've definitely wondered about the sonic differences between the two lines and your observations have helped. Based on your listening it sounds like you'd recommend the 150.8 for Sapphires (and probably the XA for the Excite X12s-not gonna happen $$$...). Much appreciated!

Nothing wrong with making Cheese, I love it! In fact I am picking up some for a customer in a few minutes!

Cranberry Chardonnay Cheddar
Sharp Cheddar
Garlic Cheddar
Merlot Cheddar
Amber Beer Cheddar
Cherry Wine Cheddar
Basil Mozzarella
Blueberry Chardonnay
Jalapeno Pilsner Cheddar
Door County Cherry Cheddar
Olive Cheddar

See Cheese, beer and wine and then listening to your Dynaudio or speakers of choice! Maybe you should open up a Audio store and sell gear and cheese!
