Absolutely. For me, Simaudio just works. They are far from brittle or analytical. I find them incredibly neutral, powerful but with finesse.

I have only been able to afford the Moon stuff. Evolution is a dream. Maybe some day but always sounds great to me.

It might be fun to try something else someday but Simaudio has worked well with all speakers that have entered my space.

I just picked up three of these guys. It will be fun to hear the new speakers with my new amps. Not Evolution but as close as I can get for now with the new speaker costs.

Perhaps I'll go check out the Naim for fun and see what the hub bub is all about.

They sound fantastic and the drivers and crossover are perfect. They don't look terrible but there is some damage.

What do you think these are worth? $800?
Tom,

Sorry to hear about the damage, I had UPS do some thing similar but much worse on a pair of Contour 3.4s a years ago. Nice White KEF LS 50 sitting in the background. I have a black version of those.


Rick: Sim Audio is good gear, I however did not like the combo with Dynaudio, but did like the combination with KEF. My favorite was Threshold and Musical Fidelity with Dynaudio and that is what I have stuck with over the last couple of years.

Those are great amps. Heard them on the Revel Salon II if memory serves me correct. Side by side with a similar Bryston...
I preferred the Sim for the top end. The nod for the low end went to the Bryston slightly. Overall the Sim was the amp to have.

I must admit I am a bit of a Naim naysayer. They are huge money for minimal power. There is no denying how they worked with the C4 though. It was magnificent.

It is old Dynaudio Audience 122 and 42C.

I have accidentally bought them (5 speakers set: 122, 42С, 42W) for 500$ in perfect condition. Before them I used focal 716, and i was impressed witn dynaudio, the more I sold the two focal speakers for more than a bought this set))

Hello GTaudiophile... here's Holland calling...

I,ve Soundcare® SuperSpike standard models under the Focus 260

http://www.superspikes.com/products.htm

By the way, a hifi-rack of glass isn,t perfect for audioperformance (so people say )
I solved this, by putting wooden plate with rubber vibration damper for under the washingmachine,
under all my devices. (total cost less of 25 american dollar for amp, bluy-ray, cd-player and Dac together )

Thanks for replying. What is your current gear? Is it different from your old gear?

No, the set is practical the same, only the foto above, isn't with wooden plate with rubber vibration damper as mentioned before
under all my devices. Further you see in the photo a Project headphone box, this is yet already sold and now I,m using the
headphone-output of my CD-player.

My sqeeuzebox is connected with an optical link to the dac-function of my CD-player and with a S/PDIF to my
Music-Hall tube Dac as well. Both connections work very well and the difference is very little.
Over the Music Hall dac, the sound is a bit smoother and this especially an advantage by classic-music.

Special for the Audioholics an musiclovers at the other side of the ocean...
2 instrumental nummers from dutch popgroups

Divergence from the group Solution (one of my favourits) - this is the original


Same song but now a cover from the dutch band Focus and it,s called Tommy
(probably because the original is written by Tom Barlage, the saxofonist of Solution)

Hi all. I have a pair of Dynaudio Focus 220II's that I'm using in my home theater with an Anthem MRX510. They sound good but I'm thinking of moving them upstairs into a better sounding (smaller) dedicated listening area. I'm looking for a compact integrated amp and am wondering if the Wyred for sound mINT would be a good option? I obviously like the sound of the 220's otherwise I wouldn't have purchased them but I would prefer to match them with an amp that is warmer on top.

Nice accident.

I have a pair of 42Ws on the way which will replace the 1.3MKIIs I had as surrounds.....mind you the 42Ws just cost me the same as your 5 speakers.
