I got a chance to audition the Dynaudio Contour C1.4 & Confidence C1 this past weekend and man was I impressed(so was the wife), I can't believe the sound those bookshelves produced.


What can I look at that will give me as close to the quality sound of Dyn's without breaking the bank?

Look no further then Totem. They make incredible sounding speakers for under Dynaudio prices. Not all models hold this true but for the most part it is.


I owned and have Installed just about every single Dynaudio model made. Totem is a company I feel comes close to that level of sonic reproduction.


I think you will be impressed.

To the OP, how much is not breaking the bank? I know the MSRP on the C1.4s is almost $5000. If you only want to spend $1000 that would probably help. Everyones idea of expensive is different.

Don't know about the Contours per se, but you read fairly frequently where Ascend Sierra's are being compared to Dynaudio bookshelf speakers.


Google Dynaudio Ascend Sierra for examples.

A dealer quoted me $3400 for the c1.4 & $7000 for the Confidence C1.


I guess I would be willing to spend up to $2000, but less is better.

I can't remember where I read the review but in a review of the Aperion 632 LR's (now 6B's), the sound was compared to Dynaudio 140's. I have never heard Dynaudios but I just bought a pair of lightly used 632's, and they are amazing for their size and price point.
