  1. I'm thinking used prices for a good pair would be around 17-18k?
  2. Going back a while Cambridge audio used to display their products with a clear lid. They looks fantastic and sounded okay but, reliability was terrible and when it did fail no tech would want to look at them. Never again for me.

  4. Between 8 and 10 o'clock seems normal to me? 10 would be my limit. I have a Plinius pre also but, it's the same on all my other pre-amps with the exception being my AVR.
  5. Contour 20 has a think heavy Ali plate on the front of it and a bigger box. I'm thinking that's where to extra weight is?
  6. Nice one! We will expect a full run down with pictures.
  7. The old 1.4 is very laid back compared to most other Dyn models. I feel the C1's are a tad treble shy although they do everything well across all frequencies and are completely balanced. I personally would take a used pair of C1's over the 1.4LE. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Contour s1.4LE is now discontinued. Have you tried the new Contour 20? Dynaudio use a slightly different tweeter in their upper models (Esotar 2) which is excellent . I believe the new Contours have this tweeter.
  9. Looks a lot like my settings when I had my 802 Diamonds though mine was a tad steeper around the 2-3k range. I have a set of 800's myself but looking at your EQ are you tying to make them sound like the 650's?
  10. Just going over my old cd's and I can't find any mention. 1978, 1979 and 1980 was the years. Was Brothers in Arms the first DDD cd ever released??
  11. They were all analogue, Brothers in arms was the first "DDD" Dire Straits album. But I completely agree with your comments. I have the box set and it's a pile of crap.

  13. Be sure to ignore What HiFi then
  14. Newer models are not always better mate!
  15. Correct.
