If I recall correctly the C1 Platinums were $9500 and the stand6 were $650. My C1 Sigs were $8500 and the black/chrome stand4's were $850 (standard stand4 were $450)

They're in the same price range as the KEF Reference 1 with their stands, more expensive than KEF without. I'd love to know about any comparisons. Fit & finish appears to be at equal levels.

System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB1000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck, AudioTechnica LP260 turntable. The last 3 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.

I've owned both and both at the top of their game. It is totally down to listener choice and what you hear and desire in a world class monitor.

I felt KEF was better at lower listening levels despite the fact the latest version of C1 was supposed to resolve this. I heard no real world difference although others might disagree. Dynaudio needs juice to feel engaged to me. But KEF is a harder load. I am feeding massive loads of current with mono block amps and it seems they want even more at times. I would call this a negative to KEF but I'm covered here.

I have owned soft dome for years and wanted something different this time. KEF is not bright but to me more engaging. Again a new acquired taste over the past year as C1 is still incredible.

I give fit and finish both transducer and stand to KEF. Again personal taste but when up close and personal to both you can see the designers path to a hand built speaker. KEF in wood is second to none except Sonus Faber. Dynaudio approach is around lacquers and might add other wood options to their next high end replacements.

All personal choices. Both spectacular. I think KEF has done it all with this line.

Pick your poison and be happy.

Rick

Looks like they compensated for the Euro. It was $9500 when they came out.
Thanks for the update Steve

My c1 mk11's in white were 8500 Canadian dollars,and the white is considered a Premium finish.The Canadian dollar has taken a big nose dive since then,so you would be paying much more now(with exchange rate),i believe the stand 4 was 500 and stand 6 was 600 Canadian dollars...i have owned the stand 3,4 and 6,only the stand 3 remains,on my excite 12's.
A little follow up to an earlier post i had...i spoke to my dealer this week,he is keeping the Focal sopra 1's at home,and brought his c1 platinum's back to the store,they are now for sale.
i am not trying to bash the c1's,just telling you what he told me...he said the mid's and tweeter's were more detailed on the Sopra's,and the bottom end was about equal between the two.Turns out he is using a Cyrus 70 watt amp to drive them,and a Simaudio Dac.He said he was going to try something with a bit more power...but the Sopra's sounded really good with only 70 watts.I have still not heard the Sopra's myself,but i would say Dynaudio needs to up their game/make changes with their Confidence line...or they may start losing some loyal customers to the likes of Focal and Kef(Mr Softdome)...i hope they do,the confidence series has been around forever it seems,with only cosmetic changes and minor tweeks to the
crossover's and tweeter coating...Yawn.

7.2-Cary audio cinema 12 , focus xd 600, confidence centre, excite12, neat iota, Cary 500.1 monoblock, anthem mca-50, 2 Jl-audio fathom 112s, 65 inch Panasonic 3d plasma, marantz-blueray
