There will be no drive through penalties. Race infractions will be handled according to Sharia Law. The requirement for drivers to use HANS devices will be relaxed to facilitate beheadings.

I just don't even get why they still have Monaco on the calendar. The promotors don't have money to continue, the drivers hate it, the fans mostly ignore it, and it has no prestige whatsoever....

Yeah, I think so.

I want to stick with the big cabinets of floorstanders. Where large scale orchestra and choral music is concerned I think it helps to bring out the big sound I want for that....

I don't find those prices surprising. If the S3.4LE really has the Esotar2, then that's a pretty good price when compared to the S5.4 or the Focus 380 (the other sub-Confidence speakers with...

That price for the S3.4LE makes complete sense to me. I don't know that I would compare to the C1 MK II. That's a different animal, IMHO.

When I got my S3.4 and added the Esotar2 to them, I could...

What will be over $7K? The S3.4LE? That makes sense to me since the current S3.4 retail for $6500. I could have gotten C1s instead of my S3.4s, but I had the S1.4 and was looking for a floorstander...

I did that on my own about two years ago. It was 15 minutes of work to install the Esotar2 into my S3.4s, but it sure took a long time to break them in.

I don't think Dynaudio has published...

The LE line will comprise only the S1.4 and S3.4. I have heard the S3.4 will have the Esotar2. I doubt that S1.4 will have them since those tweeters retail for half the S1.4 retail.

The S3.4 sound...

I think you are probably right. Every time I hear the C2s at my dealer I am amazed at how accurate they are. I like a good soundstage. It makes a difference for the classic jazz and orchestra/choral...

I think the C2 Mk II are probably the sweet spot in the Dynaudio lineup. I hope to have them someday, but can't swing it in the foreseeable future. As for the C4, even if I had the room for them I...

I think an interesting comparison might be between the S5.4 ā€“ a three-way system with a single Esotar2 ā€“ and the Confidence C2 ā€“ a two-way system with dual Esotar2. I assume the C2, with its DDS...

Yes, I installed a pair of Estoar2 tweeters (the E110s from the mobility line) in my S3.4s back in Fall '12 and after a very lengthy (400-500 hours) and chaotic break-in they sound awesome.

Thanks. All is well. I spent most of the last year getting back into bicycling and not as much on audio, although I did change out my phonostage (in March) and phono cartridge (this week).

If I got C2s and had a choice, I'd be tempted to get piano black to match my other gear (REL, Naim, Herron Audio...all black).
