I have owned there's for a while ( 2015 I think) buying them off MarkT who bought them new.
They are one of the best sounding speakers IVe heard either at MarkT or at my place. Recently I purchased the Falcon Audio Studio 30's which I am very happy with. Actually could live with either the dyn's or the Falcons which set me back $6500 from Andy at Audiofix. Hence this EOI. Any further questions feel to ask. Cheers dave
From MarkT original advert.
I bought these Dynaudio Confidence 5 brand new on 5/9/2002 from
Frank Prowse Hi-Fi here in Perth.
They are one of the last C5 manufactured , serial numbers 757249 and 757250.
RRP was $16,000 aud.
They are more efficient than the earlier C5 with these having an efficiency of 86db and 4 ohm load.
Dynaudio state an amp of 120wpc in a medium sized room and 240watt in a large room is sufficient.
Frequency response is stated as 40hz - 21khz +/- 3db .
Dynaudio don't BS on their specs like some others by stating an in room response , what you get "in room" with the Confidence 5 is flat to 30hz and a 25hz test tone is clearly audible from the listening position.
Low frequencies are incredibly tight and clean , the C5 is a sealed box loudspeaker , compound loaded with an internal 7 inch woofer complimenting the external 8 inch bass driver.
They are far more tolerant of room positioning and room size than bass reflex designs .
I auditioned a pair of C2 at home for a fortnight and I can say without doubt that the Confidence 5 is clearly superior .
The Confidence 5 also feature the top of the line Dynaudio Esotar T330D silk dome tweeter and top of the range M560D soft dome midrange driver.
The C5 is by far and away the best passive speaker I have yet heard and many Dynaudio fans regard it as better than anything they have done since , with the exception of the Temptation and Master Evidence series.
I am replacing the C5 with active atc scm100asl , had them side by side for 2 years now and I am still not sure which gives the best sound , the atc or the Dynaudio / Plinius SA250MK4 combo , but it has come time to make a decision , as it's just impractical to run two high end setups in the one room .
Condition is excellent with only a small mark on one of the speakers plinths from careless ex wifes vacuum cleaner , it is hardly noticable though and if anyone needs to see a close up pic I can send one.
I have the Manuals , spikes and original Dynaudio Double boxes for safe shipping.......boxed weight is around 65KG each.
