I highly recommend this at home if you got the room before you make and decisions, I did this with my S40's and Contour 20's before I sold my S40's, both great speakers but the Contour won me over for my current monitor of choice. I have no doubt the Confidence line will be a stellar one, but for me I can't see selling my C2 Platinums off and money having marginal improvements, based on their changes. The Confidence 20's should have been just under the 10K mark, especially with cabinets being made in China, it would be nice for a chance to pass along some of that cost savings to the customer, which rarely happens!

I don't work for a pharma company, medical side of the fence... Also it's called Generic Drugs, they are cheap.. Plus they actually practice Scientific based medicine to prove one medication is effective over another and spend billions to prove it, unlike the Audio industry when it comes to cables and interconnects etc.. its all fluff! LOL On another note if people actually listened to their doctors they wouldn't have to be on half the crap they are talking. Example, I dropped 40lbs back down to my College weight and I am off of BP meds and Cholesterol meds, more money for music! When they start making drugs in China, I am going to be very scared.... Look what they have already done to dog food! https://truthaboutpetfood.com/deadly...-treats-again/ <<<<< FDA doesn't have the man power or money to regulate this, which is unfortunate..

Yeah, the other Naim for this Forum has been re-naimed! lol All kidding aside, with Dynaudio Naim would sound the best out of that grouping. Although the "A" series and the M6i via MF I would choose over Naim just based on my experience..

Thanks Rick but I need more details...hit reply where? In AVS or in photos? Actually I only see reply as an option to quote somebody “quick reply”... is that what you mean? Hit the paper clip in this window, or in photos? I don’t see an upload option in photos? Close window button where, in photos?...like I said, I need step by step, more details, I have never done this....thanks anyway.

The reply far left under the last person who posts.

Click on Paper clip then it launches into a pop up window.
Then I get a select picture menu. Click Choose file and find picture to upload. Select it. Click upload. Then click close window. Then click post like you normally would. If you don’t click upload won’t work.

Can you see these? I took pictures with my iPhone and sent to iPad.

Thanks for your help, I think Naim will be a great combination with the Excite X14 Dynaudio, but it would be interesting to compare the Naim Nait 5si and Uniti Atom, most likely the Nait 5si could give me better results by adding a separate dac, but also because it has more power than the Naim Uniti Atom

Dont know the rest of your system, but the Atom gives more than just a dac, also streaming included, very nice all in one amp.
And the latest amp development good be of more important to soundquality then those 20 watts.
Also, an Atom can be paired later on with a power amp.

Congrats on your health progress! That is terrific. And you should already be scared about generics coming from India. Their efficacy can be wildly different from the name brand. I believe up to 20% less potent is allowable by the FDA!

I've been a fan of the MF A series Dynaudio match up for many years.
Dynaudio Audience 52SE and MF A3.2 integrated then Dynaudio s1.4 then MF A3.2CR Pre/Power then Dynaudio C1 Plat. and if I can get my hands on an A308CR stack...

Spot on, the products made in India are scary, the product being made they're do not have the same strict and life savings regulations as we do, and China is even worse in this category. Using cheaper labor is one thing but using cheaper ineffective materials in the process of making these products can cause life threatening issues for some.

no quarter: Cool looking ride![/QUOTE]

Thanks Garman, I know it is not the manliest vehicle in the world, but I am extremely happy with it. It is a 2.1 litre twin turbo Diesel, the fuel economy is outstanding, tHe stereo is Harmon Kardon, not too shabby sounding really, 6 disc CD/DVD changer, Nav, cameras all around, power tailgate, moon roofs, this thing is entry level Mercedes, but has more options than I have ever had in a North American made vehicle. 200 HP/369 FT lbs of torque is surprisingly quick, given its small size.

Confidence centre, XD 600's,Excite 12’s,Chord,Naim,Cary Audio.

I looked at one of those before I bought my Subaru, but it had too many miles on it for me to use it for Company car, we use a company called Motus that manages and pays for our cars, the cool thing is I own it, they just reimburse me, but they have stipulations on how old and how many miles can be on it, so people don't use the system for making money.

The BMW X3 is a project car for me/kid and so far it's turning out nicely as with most vehicle that are used, you just never know how well their were cared for. (Thankfully this one was). I just put a touch screen in that matches the new X series computers, simple install with one problem. The AUX input on the X3 and many older BMW's needs to be programmed, in order for the unit to feed audio from computer to car. LOL Lucky I found a computer tech college student that BMW recommended, that will do it for $40 bucks, unlike the dealership that will charge $167 dollars an hour... LOL The cool thing is the touch screen works amazingly fast.. HT/Audio and Stereo, zero issues, but when it comes to car audio, I am in the weeds on this! LOL I have no issues installing Dynaudio speakers and Amps in cars..

Torque wins over horsepower everyday. My new Toyota Avalon is 301 HP/267 Ft LBS torque. But the Avalon is so much fun to drive. Not too impressed with the audio although it has 14 JBL speakers with 1200W of power

The 308 pre/power makes a perfect combination with the Contour 20, assume they will do the same with and for the C1.

I was at my dealer today. I didn't have time to talk to them much, but I did a quick check of their Confidence 20 and Confidence 30. Both pair have printed "Made In Denmark" on the back at the cable binding posts. Not "assembled" and not "designed." I do not believe they can claim that if the cabinets are made elsewhere and assembled in Denmark.
