During my first quick audition, I felt C2 has a little bit more clarity or tranparency, or maybe more details but its bass is not strong(dealer called cleaner bass) , C60 is thicker, warmer and sometimes even with wider soundstage and I think it is more balanced.
Above is just based on my short audition, and I am not an experienced Hi-Fier, though I have owned a pair of Audicence 52 for 10 years
I would like to hear what you guys think about these two models
. (New confidence series will be too expensive for me and they are hard to find for an audition now. )
BTW, the room is about 25m2.
How far away from the speakers will you sit? And how far away from the wall will you place them? In my experience with the C2s, the listening position should be 3m or more away, and the speakers should be at least a meter out from the wall, ideally 1.5m. I believe the same will be true of the Contour 60, but don't have first hand experience with them. If room constraints dictate a closer listening position or placing speakers closer to the wall, then I think you would be better off with one of the stand mounted models.
