RaceTripper/Yonson: Some oldies but good ones! My vary first system was LR120 X 5 for HT.... I had Confidence 3/5 etc.. way too long to list, but pretty easy to go through a ton of Dynaudio's when you work at a store, and they were are number #1 brand... I think I might have had 30-40 different pairs over the years.
I think the Audience 52SE is a classic and a great sounding speaker. I have no desire to replace it for my home office system. With a small sub they would really be great.

If I look back on how many pairs I had there are 2 speakers I might have kept... The Special 25s and the Confidence 3s..... the Confidence Platinum C2s are my sweet spot..

either really. I do believe that an honest 120wpc with decent dynamic headroom and decent power supply is plenty for your excites. cheaper AVR ratings are more optimistic than a decent power amp or integrated I would think. A fun experiment is using an amp with VU meters and reallize your peak program power is usually under 10 watts and probably 1/2 watt true RMS.

Anecdote the first: old NAD 2030 was purchased for 60$ rated at 30wpc, probably more like 40-50 IRL, can drive my old contour 1.8 to surprisingly high levels even with loudness contour turned on which adds alot of wattage in the bass where the speakers can handle it

Anecdote B: Bryston 100 wpc rated integrated (~200 @4ohm s) Can drive my C4s to insane volumes even in a big room, quite sure it could fry some smaller excites before become stressed

Anecdote the 3rd:tried to drive my buddies contour 5.4s with an old 100wpc receiver. Something cheap I forgot which model, but old enough to have a linear powersupply and class AB. It shut itself down at low volumes. Didnt like the 4ohm nominal load I guess.


Anyways, dont get so caught up on rated power Id say. Using a decent 2 channel amp or int is highly preferred but the joy of this sort of thing is you can upgrade over months, years, decades. There are alot of decent amps that arnt all that expensive. Like The Schitt yonson recommends. A decent integrated with HT bypass seems like the hot ticket to me. Not being a home theater kinda guy I personally would be tempted to skimp on the HT components and focus quality on the stereo components. A low level AVR can drive some pretty inexpensive and efficient klipsh or JBL horn loaded speakers to high volumes.

No, I just have one of their racks for my current rotation of records. Prather makes great stuff, but they are too expensive for larger collections. I use Ikea Kallax for my general record shelving.

Thanks RT, we have an IKEA store here in Windsor, so I will look into something like this for $70.00 rather than the Prathermade one I like for $682.00 Damn it, I just noticed the Windsor store closed down.

I paid less than $600 for the shelves housing my wall of vinyl. I have more of those shelves elsewhere in the house to house more vinyl. I have well over 60 linear feet of records, so the Ikea Kallax is great since the fit is just right and they aren't costly.

Yes Ontario, but I can’t imagine it will be cheap. I really need to buy some albums first. I might look for IKEA stores on my way to the Toronto area, where I will be heading to pick up my Nagra....kill two birds with one stone.

RaceTripper: Impressive Wall of Albums, when I was working at a Record Store in College CDs just hit... I sold my Linn LP12 and 120 albums and never looked back... over 6000 CD most of them sold and burned to hard drives way too much of a pain in the ass for me to go back. I still think I might have 1000-2000 CDs most burned now.. Still like physical stuff as you own it and are not renting it, per say.... The C2s look very good with that Album wall..

Yeah, the room and Ikea Kallax worked out pretty well. I even get some benefit of the vinyl behind the speakers as a sort of room treatment. Now the problem is I'm running out of storage space for records, and have started standing up some Ikea shelves for them in the back of the room and in another room.

Hi , I'm new to this forum and and not sure how things work . I was told that Dynaudio still makes the Evidence line . I heard the new Confidence speakers and prefer the sound of the older speakers . Can I still order Evidence speakers or only used ?

Thank you

The Evidence line is discontinued, and the new Confidence are top of range now. You can check with dealers to see if the distributor has any left, or if dealers have any demos for sale. I know my dealer hasn't had their pair for a very long time now (years). I see them come up for sale on Audiogon now and then.

Kallax works quite well for LPs. I think I will put some backing on mine.

It is a standardish cube size though, Costco and Amazon sell very similar cube shelves that work just check the opening dimensions, something around 13" or so I'd guess. Wayfair has some cool MCM reproduction type record shelves but at least 10x the price of the cube things.

I fix some stops on the back and use strips of floor base moulding to stop the records so they stand about 1/2" from the front edge.

I think Dynaudio still makes the M5P Evidence. It's still on the web site anyway. It's in the pro line. I think it's based on the Evidence Master and has plainer (black or white) cosmetics.

HT: Dynaudio C2, Contour S CX, 2x BM14S, Aperion surrounds, Simaudio Titan, Marantz AV8801, Oppo 103, Linn Majik DS, and a Pioneer Kuro
Stereo: Dynaudio Focus 160, Simaudio W-5 LE or Luxman M-600A, Linn Akurate DSM, 2x Rythmik F12G
Other interests: motorcycling, skiing, being active

cool, will try that method. Can probably get moulding that matches pretty close at the hopeless despot (home depot) as well

I don't even worry about matching. They sit at the bottom of the back of the shelves, and when loaded with records aren't visible. I just used gorilla glue to attach those supports at the shelf intersections.

And Kallax are really not very expensive, even for larger collections.

What do you guys think of Sonus Faber? I've never heard any of their speakers I'll admit but they sure look like quality products. The materials and craftsmanship seem second to none. I am digging the Guarneri Tradition monitor...https://www.sonusfaber.com/en/produc...eri-tradition/

Also Nova I about the price of Contour 20...https://www.sonusfaber.com/en/products/olympica-nova-i/

Lots of bling for sure, but I have never heard any Sonus Faber speakers. From what I have read they are more of a pipe and slippers speaker, not something you want for Rock and Metal. Better suited for Jazz and classical maybe...

I got my Atom today, and installed in the office, running Roon and playing through my Dynaudio Audience 52SE wall-mounted speakers. It sounds too good for work.

I don’️t have any woodworking tools in my apartment, so my plan is to buy one of the Kallax racks that RT uses. I have found an IKEA store near where I am going tomorrow to pick up my Nagra integrated, so hopefully they have one in stock. I might add those stops like RT did, will see when I get it assembled...if they have one.

No desire to do that. I'd rather spend that time enjoying my music. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
And Kallax are really not very expensive, even for larger collections.
I’m not a fan of looking at the spines of albums. A sheet of plywood is inexpensive even higher quality pieces. That said to each their own. Kind of like the gear we use. Here’s a pic of one I’ll be picking up once it’s completed. Should hold 500-600.

That's all fine for smaller[ish] collections, but I have to store 4000 LPs and growing. Spine out like books is most efficient and makes it easier to locate things quickly.
