Revel Concerta2 M16 or Dynaudio Excite X14

Hello I'm looking for a pair of stand speakers for desktop use.
I focused my choices on Revel Concerta2 M16 and Dynaudio Excite X14.
I would like to know if for desktop use the Revel represent some problem especially in the region of low frequencies and
in the correct reproduction of the soundstage, and finally how it compares with the Dynaudio Excite X14.
I will also add a subwoofer to create a more credible soundstage.

Thanks for the help and sorry for my bad english

If you were in the States, easy enough to compare them as Crutchfield sells both.

Bit is sounds like you are not in the US.

They are both excellent speakers but it would seem the much smaller Dynaudios might make more sense for Desktop use, especially with a subwoofer in play.

They both "claim" 50hz extension but the 6.5" main driver on the larger Revel would likely actually achieve that while the Dynaudio may not.

Have you considered powered speakers...such as JBL LS305? They are designed for near field listening and the wave guide for the tweeter works wonders with accurate wide dispersion...huge sweet spot. Also Adam and Yamaha has each.

I use the JBL’s...bought them at a local musical instrument store. I come,out of my computer to a little tube pre amp to the speakers. You can also just come straight from computer or any other line level source.

I found these pro audio studio monitors like the JBL’s sound better or as good than non powered home audio speakers costing 2-3x’s as much.
