    Dynaudio Audience vs DM ranges Speakers

    Correct, the excite series sits above the emit series.At the moment the hierarchy in general is: Emit Excite Contour Confidence Dynaudio do have very hi end after the confidence series and the focus series which they no longer make. There is some suggestion that the new evoke range have replaced the focus series. Hope this helps.

    Anti Magpie Mods

    Our cycling group noticed that our local winged terror only swooped when by yourself and shyed away from the group! But at end of the day I just find a different route and return when mating season is over.
  5. Hi All....I know this thread is a bit old now but just cant resist adding my thoughts. Like the OP, I also went on a merry journey to listen to the S40 and the 1.4Le. Low and behold the le's are now in my music room at home. Since my purchase I have had a few audio nut friends around who all say the same thing....you could sit here and listen to them forever, and yes many a day has been taken up with all day listening sessions. So i also preferred the contour le over the s40...but as everyone says that choice is very subjective. Ps mine are in high gloss piano black and the contrasting faceplate looks beautiful.

    Best passive studio monitors for under 1k

    I would second the Dynaudio m20. I have a set and they are great for the price especially if you likea bit more in the low frequency end. They are also very good for 2 channel listening.
  7. Did you end up getting an integrated amp? If you can keep both ie integrated for music and the sony for movies. Because anyone here if they are being honest will tell you that your receiver is a crap choice for music especially if thats what youre after 70% of the time. MF or CA would be fine and a huge improvement on that Sony.

    Hello from Perth!

    Welcome crane ..........from another Perthie
  10. I had one of these a couple of years ago and sold it locally. I always regretted selling it. Probably one the best amps you could buy at that price! Im sure this will go quick.

    What is the 'Cambridge Audio' sound?

    My first integrated was the azur 851a great amp and should have kept it for my second system. House sound is kind of a myth. The 851a had a different sound when played with B&W , different again with the big Ushers and yep different with my dynaudios. Subjective

    Why have Multiple Cartridges?

    Yep...what all of the above said. As audio enthusiasts we are on the eternal quest for the perfect sound. Shibata, microline styli , mm/mc they all sound different.

    FS: Musical Fidelity M6 500i

    This is a fantastic integrated amp and at that price someone would be getting a real bargain. I have compared my m6500i to reference amps double and almost triple the price and it compared equally if not better probably due to the power on tap. This would be an end game amp for many GLWTS.
