I used it with Focus 160s as well and I still feel for vocal clarity it was one of the best Ive heard. It could punch decently but no so much that voices were lost during big action scenes.

Came to life after that and became completely balanced, transparent, accurate and glorious. New Dynaudio drivers (in the 60, at least) take a while to loosen-up and move as they're meant to - and, therefore, to sound as they should. Undeniable.

lol...that's quite the price jump from the stuff he's looking at. At around $20K I would be looking into Vitus Audio like the RI-101.

no quarter: Heard from several people that there was quality control issues with the line, as I am sure this has popped up before with other companies moving some of the manufacturing off shore for cheaper labor. I am not waiting around any longer, hence I bought the Contour 20's as they are pretty darn good and I can't see the Confidence 20's costing over double in price and being worth the extra cost. Plus I got more important things to spend my money on, like going to live concerts and trips to Italy and kids going off to college! lol For me the Confidence line took a wrong turn and I now have a IDC attitude towards it, especially after then announced the delays and where the cabinets are being made and no cost reduction passed onto the consumer. Just my opinion!

My dealer has had the 20s and 30s since the week before Munich. They started demoing to customers after they returned from the show. I think they said they are getting a pair of 50s as well.

Yes, I have been there several times. I have heard them playing as they break them in and what I heard informally sounded great. They look beautiful too. I have not taken anything in to play for a sit down serious demo, and I probably won't anytime soon.

When they had the traveling demo pair of 60s in last fall I did get a chance to listen to them with some records I took in. Those sounded fantastic, but they were also hooked up to a very high end $600K Boulder system.

I see a lot of folks are really diving into the new Contour line. They are great speakers. I didn't know if you all have seen this posted before but I found a great Dynaudio Magazine covering the intro of the new Contour and thought others here would enjoy it. Sorry if this is a repost.

Hello have any of you made a demo of the combination Musical Fidelity M2si and Dynaudio Excite X14? How was your musical experience with this setup?


Thank you and Good Sunday

I have heard the M3i and both X16 and Focus 260s. I very much enjoyed the mid-range and highs but I felt the bass lacked weight, overall the sound lacked fullness as a result and I ended up buying the Naim Nait 5i. I feel the 5i lacks a little mid range timbre, but overall I felt it was more musically satisfying. The Naim XS or XS2 added the tube like mids, if you can find one used would be a great bargain.

I would agree with callas01 assessments, I would look for a good price on a Musical Fidelity A series, a A5 or A3.5 as they have much more power and detail then some of the newer MF gear... To Me MF gear in the "M" series doesn't sound as good till you get up in the "6" but felt the 5 series had more detail and power and no lack of bass. I have owned both, and still enjoy the A series stuff, loved the sound of it combined with Dynaudio and enjoyed the industrial looking design as well.

Dynaudio Owner's Thread

I now have a little over 200 hours on my Contour 60s. They sound really, really good. Tons of current behind them, each driven by McIntosh MC601 600 watt monoblock amplifiers. With all the talk about break in, I feel compelled to give my experience. My Contour 30 speakers, driven by the exact same pair of 601 amps, sounded really bad out of the box when I got them 2 years ago. It was around 70 hours when the 30s started to sound like the Contours I auditioned at my dealer’s place. So I expected the 60s to be the same. Much to my surprise, the 60s have sounded wonderful from day 1, straight out of the box, without much, if any, change over the last 211 hours of play. I am also running in simultaneously a pair of Dynaudio Sub 6’s.

I love the combination of the "A" series with Dynaudio. I have been running the A3.2CR separates with s1.4's and now C1 Platinun's and they pair very well. Personally I prefer the older A range that are manufactured in the UK over the newer Taiwanese built units. Build quality seems to be better. HOWEVER if you can find and pick up a Musical Fidelity AMS35i pure class A integrated, that is a killer piece.

UCrazyKid: Dynaudio typically makes sure it is paired at shows with good equipment, they have used MF gear way back when and then Octave, NAD Master Series, Sim Audio, Naim etc.. The best Integrated I had from (MF) that I still miss was the KW-500, their higher end series stuff those were built like tanks. You can pick those still up in the used market for around 2K, if you get one that was well cared for that would be a great find. I agree with you on the AMS35i, but usually the used price of those is still pretty high..

Since nobody is posting here...DrewTT you mentioned liking B&w speakers a while ago, they sound awfully good in this video. Oh wait, it might be the Mscaler /TT2 driving them...Trent Reznor helps too.😍 Still looking for Confidence 20 videos like this...

I'm going to take the NUC I built for running Roon ROCK to my dealer to give them a Roon demo and talk about what it takes to set one up. That will give me a good chance to really hear the Confidence 30 with my digital music library. That might be dangerous. Every time I go over there they sound better and better.

Meanwhile, I am auditioning a Nordost Heimdall II RCA IC for my NDX2. I had a Red Dawn but it sounded pretty much the same as my stock Naim lavender DIN IC. So far the Heimdall is a nice improvement: not huge, but more noticeable and desirable. The music flows better: moire air, better dynamics, smoother top end. However, I'm not so sure I can justify the cost ($767). I might spring for a used HiLine IC on eBay (about $500) and see how that is.

I sold my old Esotar2 110 tweeters on A'gon this morning. I used part of that money to buy a Super Wiremold Cryo AC outlet from AV Options.

I have four Heimdall 2 cables, two digital and two analog for my 600’s...but right now I am using the analog cables out of my NDS to my Cary Cinema 12. Really happy with mine, but I did not do any extensive comparisons with other cables. I also have a Heimdall 2 speaker cable on my Confidence Center. They definitely are not cheap, but Nordost makes crazy expensive ones that I would never consider buying. (Odin).

Naim Super Lumina is bad enough (and well out of my price range).

If I got the Heimdall it would be just one .6m RCA IC. And that's what costs $767. However, I do have a $1600 Transparent cable on my phonostage, but that's different. It's for my record collection.

The Superlumina is probably around 2 k would be my guess. I have a 2 meter, and 4 meter digital...also two 3 meter analogs, so yeah, I spent a few bucks. kind of need these though with XD’s, and no amps to buy, so I just went for it.

Yeah, SL 1.5m IC DIN5-DIN5 is $3300. HiLine is $1300. Used HiLines are going for about $500. I might get the latter.

Woah, that is more than I expected, the SL din to xlr was about 2200 Canadian I think, when I bought mine...but my SL speaker cables were around 4K,ouch!

I need 7m speaker cables. That would be about $8K for SL. I'll stick with my NACA5.

SL DIN to XLR for my 250DR is $2700 US

Those sound like list price, generally I get new gear at 90 %, new cables at 80 % taxes included, then there is used, which can get you down around 50%.

I'd rather find a used SuperCap or a used XPS-DR for $3k or so (or both). Those would give my system a bigger lift.

The B&W 803D3 and up towers are really impressive. Sounded really good last time I heard them with the Mac monos. The mids are incredibly lifelike. I also like the diamond tweeter but have to be careful with the partnering gear.
