For pushing $100K it has to be phenomenal!

But somewhere I can hear Jaxwired salivating

I wonder if he's tempted to move the Fact.12s out of the way for a Raidho audition.

And for $30K, the U300 is up there with his Devialet unit. Would love a Aavik vs. Devialet shootout!

I believe Rhett has had one and he's getting the Aavik.

Speaking of Jax, he was in Chicago and he did post some pix on AudioShark.........

Yeah that U-300 will make the Dynaudio sing as well. Thats why my KW-500 hasn't been upgraded, I have tried much more expensive rivals and the combo of Musical Fidelity and Dynaudio just works well, I saw the combo many years ago at the CES show and I haven't looked back. The Aavik combo Int. Amp and Dac is sure a killer combo. I have heard the Devialet as well, hard to compare unless they are in the same room.

Jax has already stated on another forum the Ho's just don't do it for him. And that was with the D3's.

Rhett currently has the Devialet on loan (not sure which model) but he told me he loves and hates it. He said some songs are fantastic and others far from it. He never mentioned if the clarity is so much better that he is hearing a low quality recording.

+1. If anything gets him out of his 12s...it'll be KEFRef

CD: I really liked the KEF Reference series, they looked great and sounded great and it was one of the better rooms at the show!

The C1 is one of the ugliest speakers around. What were they thinking when they designed this speaker?

I've always wanted a pair. My dad thinks they're ugly, but I don't know, they're cool to me! Haha

The boring box is fine art compared to that abomination.

lulimet - I have to agree the C1 is not the prettiest design. I've always said it and I think we are in the minority. But the looks didn't stop me from buying a pair then later the C1 sig's.
lulimet and amatuerholic like this.

The C1s have a distinct presence about them; they make a statement in your living room without being too avant-garde. They are unique and I like them as a contrast to the boxes you typically find.

Man. I have never seen 3x pair of 260s on Audiogon before...maybe they are all buying MB-2.5s... :P

Black Ash for $2995!

Rosewood for $3200

Walnut for $3750

(Feel sorry for that last guy who put his on first!)

I too value function over form but damn, for $7k we deserve a better looking speaker.

Well I would snag a pair at those prices! I think the 260 are more of a full body speaker than the 2.5 which I like, plus I like the workmanship of the Dynaudio better on the Focus line verses the Scansonics. Now the Raidho line the workmanship is dead equal as far as looks fit and finish. Plus I am sure you can talk those people down a few hundred as well.
