I love the sound of the Dynaudio C4. They have this really nice open soundstage and the bass is fast and tight.

With most standmounts...you need the speaker at the right height, for best tweeter performance; but with the Uni-Q...the wrong height, also effects the mid-driver!

So...the dealer I work with, and I; commissioned a custom stand, from Sound Anchor! I'm not sure I can share the pics of the proto-type yet; but it's being fabricated as we speak...and it's bad-a$$

What little I did hear; might not be unlike Special 25s As for the PMCs; I never tried a 3-way, or even floorstanding Dyn...so hard to make a comparison there. But the Twenty line, is more tipped-up than my previous PMC models; so I'd say the Focus 340 is its closest likely counterpart.
Hey cd thanks for the reply,do you at least have the speakers broken in or are you just waiting for the stands?i find as long as you don't have any rocking motion,the temporary stand you use should work fairly well,but those kefs sure look big for a stand mount.i asked my dealer about those speakers,he said he heard they were hard to drive, is that what you find?i was actually born in England, moved here to Canada at age 10 so I am looking at British speakers to go with my naim setup,thinking about kef,pmc's,neat as options.i will have the dynaudios down in the basement.i actually traded in my focus 160s too(towards the xd600)so right now all I'm left with is the excite 12.

Nooo; they've barely got any hours on them at all

Like I said...without the right stand, things didn't sound right; and it just didn't make sense to try and push a bad position. So I put them on the sidelines...and bought the Twenty 26s

Thought about just putting them in another room facing each other with one wired out of phase playing on an endless loop for a while? You could just run them for a few weeks and see if they've gotten better. Just a thought...

I have a pair of C2 Platinums in Mocca right now and them, I had the originals for 10 years before I traded them in for these. Doesn't matter what Speaker I try I always come back to these because "My" ears loves the sound they put out! Many people have tried to convince me differently but you like what you like!


CD: What you using for a Dac these days? Glad to see you back.......

Garman...I am really, really pleased with the Ayre QB-9 DSD. It's gonna stay...so that means I need to purge the following DACs:

Auralic Vega
SOtM sDP-1000
Sonore exD
Marantz HD-DAC1

(and I have a Wyred DAC-2 DSDse, brand new in a box).

How about you?

PM me as I am looking for a better stand alone Dac, although I have been liking the Sabre Dac I heard good things about the Vega. I know BorderDog has the Ayre Dac and likes it a lot, I just saw one on Audiogon for 2K, but I want more inputs and outputs.

Yeah callas , I find the white has a real modern look to it but it's not for everyone.Are the 16s now 8 ohm too?
The 12 are a great little speaker...but they don' quite have the sparkle that my 160's had... Or the bass.

The X16s are discontinued. They had better bass then the X12s but not quite as much as the 160s I also owned for a bit. They were 6 ohm from the reviews but labeled as 4 ohm. They had the tone and sparkle of the level of the X12s, but bass was better. X14s are supposed to have more sparkle then the older X12s and tighter bass.

If any of you guys have your stand mounts on a carpeted floor with wood underneath, like the pic of my x 12s shows,tell you what I did. I made a Bristol board template of the spikes under the stands. Then I screwed a simple 1.5 inch long flathead wood screw into the floor...through the template locations.Screw them untill they are flush with the carpet.Then the stand spike sits right in the head of the screw,you have to tweak it a bit with a level but afterwards it is rock solid.Of course you have to optimize the position before doing any of this but it's a cheap fix to swaying stands.

White certainly does have a different 'look' about it. I have a pair of Excite X12s in Rosewood (bought used) and a pair of Sapphires in Bordeaux (bought as demos). And while I'd normally take a nice wood finish, when I bought the Scansonic 2.5s in April I asked for white. They look GREAT. And sound great. The Excites in white look very nice as well and I can sure understand Callas wanting a pair.

I thought about getting a pair of xeo's 4s at some point down the road...after I get the xd 600s,to give the multi room option a try.
Anyone here using this option?...just wonder how well it would work for a party...or,say out on a patio.
