Ok guys,phase 2 of my demo is complete,and first off i would like to say THANK YOU to DYNAUDIO for giving me this window into music that i have never experienced before.The MAGIC i was experiencing with the n 272 and xd 600's is still here with the excite 12's and now the Naim N 272 and xp5 xs (PS)with the Nap 250 dr. I had thought it was just the xd 600's
that were so good,that the pairing with the N 272 just jelled in a special way,but i REALLY think it is this pre amp/streamer that is doing this,and the 250 dr is just effortlessly powering it now,instead of the xd power.Just this morning i was listening to Radio Paradise,and not only was my foot tapping,my head was swaying back and forth (ala Stevie Wonder) and i was swinging side to side in my swivel recliner...and this was listening to Riders on the storm(The DOORS),unbelievable.The same feeling that the musician is in the room with me,i was getting with the xd's is still here with the excite's...music just flows effortlessly,and i don't feel the need to turn it up all the time,EVERY song is soooo enjoyable now,hell...i don't even feel the need to listen to anything other than Naim radio,but i have.Unfortunately,there are limits to the Excite 12's,and you just can't get the bass response i get with the xd 600's...a few occasions i pushed them a bit too far,and started to hear the woofer flutter around like it should't,didn't get that annoying POPPING though.Next i am going to try my Neat Iota's and Paradigm 90 p's...maybe nobody cares what the results are with them speakers,but i will post a quick summary of my findings.It is looking like i will be making a change from my current Supernait 2,Unitiqute 2 streamer...this is just too good to give back,lol. Octadyn,i wish you would grab a pair of Dynaudio's from Tyler for a home demo with your Aavik amp just to see if all that "raidho" magic you hear might have a lot to do with the fantastic amp/cables and power you are using,it sure might be eye opening for you what Dyn's are capable of with a world class front end...like i am hearing now
