I like the clarity and soundstage most. Miss the deepest bass (though it should go down to 31Hz) but then, it just might not be in the recording at all.... some electronic music albums (when engineering was still an art) go down quite deep. So I’m like where did that came from?
Allright, in case anybody is interested: I have found a free iOS app that works with the Dynaudio Connect DLNA player. That will be the Nero Streaming player.

In addition, if you want to switch between streaming, USB and Bluetooth a lot, please use the remote control app. The regular remote only has a button “usb” that handles all that, and when switching sources it does not always detect the new audio source.

Still, perfect for my needs they are not, especially in the rock department. But the politeness of these speakers make it way more suitable for lower volume playback in contrary of my previous JBL setup which kind of demands you to listen.

Offtopic: Don’t care for cars. I drive a Nissan Leaf 2. Nuff said.

I'd pass on both and just buy a slightly used Special 40. You can regularly find them in the $2k range. It's a much better speaker that will also hold its value much better for whenever you plan to sell and upgrade again.

Yeah... a speaker is as much a piece of furniture as it is a soundbox... real wood if you can afford it..

I haven't heard the 10's, I have heard the 20's they are like an unrefined, teenage S40... Basically they are ready to party at any time and I do plan on grabbing a set...

My opinion would be always go for the largest speaker that will work for your room and that you can afford.

Personally I’d go blonde wood. I think it would be more versatile then walnut, but I’d say it also depends what color your walls are, so you want something that pops or something that blends in? Never really been a walnut fan anyways.
I went white because in my room I wanted it to pop out! However in my other room which is a blue/green color I use rosewood to give contrast and a more vibrant color. I’d really like the red S40s for that room one day, then it would pop more then the rosewood.

It was a sad day yesterday giving up my Sopra 1’s to fund my Chord Hugo TT2, but it was time to face reality, I had too many speakers for one room. Just plopped it on my TV rack for now, to get it up and running, initial impressions are very good, right up there with what I heard when I demoed the Dave. Currently using it as a Dac/Pre to the Anthem and excite 12’s. Many configurations I want to try, but right now just want to get a few hours on it.

Looks nice, but I would have liked Silver if it were I lol!

Crazy to trade in $8k speakers for a $5700 dac/pre tho

Very spiffy... white speakers plus white stands.. now that's what I called a conversation starter..

If they made the S40 with a Ferrari Red stand, I'll be first in line for one..
I painted an old Atacama stand red to match my limited edition Usher S520 and it looked nice..

Maybe I'll do the same for the new stands for my S40

Thank you! That’s the room people walk into and I really wanted it to make a statement visually with both the paint colors and the speakers.

Simpler is better. I think I said it before but if I were you I would rather just have a kickass 2 channel system in an apartment then trying to do the whole multi-channel thing. Maybe a good time to trade those current Dyns on for some Confidence 20s, once they are available

How is the headphone stage on the TT2?

My front end is far from simple now, but better definitely...after listening for several hours now, I am stunned at how much music was inside these little excite 12’s. It is like they doubled in size, but most importantly, the music just envelops you, draws you in, you don’t hear the gear, speakers, just great music. I would love to simplify further, trade in the XD’s on Confidence 20’s, but finding a dealer to do that might be hard.

Callas, all my gear is black, no way I want one silver component mixed in...and who said I paid 8k for my Sopra’s? Anyway, for now I will live with these excites, who knows what the future will bring. Don’t underestimate putting most of your money in the source (NDS) and DAC (TT2) low volume listening is through the roof good now.
Drew, honestly I have not tried my headphones yet, I will get to that later tonight, but if it is twice as good as the Hugo 2, as most users say, oh my, awesome...will chime back once i try them later.

One more thing, one of my goals was to get the best sound I could out of internet radio, because I don’t rent music (Tidal) and I succeeded with this, Linn Jazz sounds fantastic, any station I try really, so happy now.

This finish is gorgeous. Getting close for a listen and comparison to the S40s.

Can you send an analog signal into the XDs? Or do they convert everything to digital anyway?

I'd think the TT2 connected directly to powered speakers should be pretty damn nice sounding.

Yes you can send an analog signal to the XD’s, but it converts to digital right away, then back to analog at the drivers. I use analog to the XD’s when watching movies, that way I can use the Cary Cinema 12’s volume control instead of the XD remote...sounds really good too. I really have not listened to the headphone side of the TT2 yet, just listened for maybe a song, just to verify it was working ok. I need a longer headphone cable, or move the TT somewhere more accessible.

How would an upstream DAC improve sound with the added conversion taking place?

I am not sure it would, Dyn have always said that a direct digital connection is best. I will try it eventually, but I doubt it will beat digital input. Speakers like ATC SCM 40A’s would work better I would think, with their XLR Analog connection. When I had the original Hugo 1 I tried connecting it to my XD’s, and found no benefit, it actually gave me some weird crackles and pops sounds.

When I was at the dealer which I picked up my TT2 at, I asked him what was new in his audio world. He brought me in a room with the all new Yamaha products, the C-5000 Pre and the m -5000 amp, along with Yamaha speakers. I only listened for a minute, but was quite impressed, he said they are the top of the line from Yamaha, somewhere around 12-13k for each piece I believe. Good to see a company from the past still marching on. This little video shows the components I heard, wonder how they would sound with Dyn?

It's ~7k € for each in Europe, so it's probably 12-13k for both in US.

That's pretty cool. Technics does something similar with their Reference R1 system and they include their own speakers. Always wanted to hear this system.

When I say 12-13k, I was talking Canadian funds, so about 9-10 k US funds. Seeing them instantly transported me back to my late teens, early twenties. A friend had a really nice Yamaha integrated, or receiver, not sure what it even was, but it was 150 Watts per channel, which was a lot at the time. He had a pair of pioneer HPM 150’s with it, and it rocked, I will never forget him playing the album Rust never sleeps, frigging awesome...on his turntable.

I went white because in my room I wanted it to pop out! However in my other room which is a blue/green color I use rosewood to give contrast and a more vibrant color. I’d really like the red S40s for that room one day, then it would pop more then the rosewood.
Just curious how far to the right can you go in that picture? It would be cool if you could get the system more centered in the room, but hard to tell the size of your room and what you have to the right... I had to make adjustments because of duct work(new room), but was able to get system finally centered for better listening and viewing pleasure. Old house we had a sunken in family room with a walk through to the left.

The dining table. We had another dining table but length pushed the chair right into the right speaker, so we had to go out and buy a round table. Where everything is setup is technically the center of the room. Used my trusty tape measure

Currently using it as a Dac/Pre to the Anthem and excite 12’s. Many configurations I want to try, but right now just want to get a few hours on it.
Hopefully they were adopted by a good home...
Congrats

Thanks, but the Sopra’s are still at the dealer I got the TT2 from. I really wanted to keep them, but with the slowdown we are experiencing at work, this was my only option right now.
