  1. @Darren69!!! Just because... Looks superb! And probably sound excellent even though I have not heard one before. GLWTS to OP.
  2. This is from Otto of Dynaudio and I quote, "The Confidence 20 does use a dedicated stand, not the Stand 20. The Confidence stand does have room for cable, what's meant by the stand being part of the port does not mean the port goes through the stand - it means the top plate of the stand is shaped to function as part of the port, shaped to reduce turbulence (port noise)." See pic in close up of Contour 20, it will be very similar to this I reckon.
  3. Here you are C20 unboxing, looks good to me.
  4. Nice looking pair of speakers, congrats. I assumed they are ported design? Have you tried positioning them away from the wall?
  5. Ensure TV HDMI (with ARC labeled) to HDMI 1 (also with ARC labled) on AVR. From memory the minimal standard for HDMI with ARC 1.4. Not sure which TV model you have, mine (LG) I set it to HDMI with ARC.
  6. @JulianR the Contour 3.4Le is rated 86db. Actual measurement rated them at 85.5db. Which means they are not very efficient or loud. To get the best out of them you need an amp with power and current. Preferably a solid state with bipolar (BJT) design. I know...currently listening to them in my living room. 😁
  7. The second half of my reply to Clive is was implying another amp...
  8. @evil c I didn't see anyone mentioned the pre power from Elektra. Valve pre and 300 Watt/Ch, comes with HT Bypass. Should be within reach at 7K budget. Seen it mentioned here on SNA it drove a pair of Maggies without any problems. If that is true, 2ohm dip might not be an issue with the Elektra. If you want try a high current unit with oodle of power, refine sounding and rated to drive down to 2ohm. Let me know, happy to bring it over. Am sure it will cuddle the Astors like babies.
  9. So you're still chasing? If the boss has given you the blessing. I am sure money won't be an issue as you get older and you have an empty nest.
  10. So, I am sure this has been raised before here on SNA. What is your current state in terms of satisfaction level of your hifi (two channels) journey? 1. Still chasing the rainbow, or forever chasing (see below). 2. You are almost there, but still chasing. 3.. You have attainted enlightenment ...the end of the rainbow. Next set of questions, a. Do you enjoy the chase? You're a serial dater, a hi fi polygamist? b. Or you wished you have gone straight to the end rather than wasting money, time and effort (if given the right advise)? c. You have stopped chasing because? Eg.You've have reached the end of your pocket, the Mrs is in the way Me personally I am on 2 and b. The next level is insane money, it can be reached but no desire to spend that much. Just one one piece of the jigsaw and that is. I do enjoy the auditioning process. Buying and the consequence reselling is not my cup of tea. So, straight to the top of what I can afford. Over to you. SMB
  11. Yes, LCR plus sub. Not sure what your budget is. Sonically I would go with one brand across the front three. The surround channels are only for sound effects, not super critical. Try Krix for surround and in ceiling speakers, they do professional cinema sound setup/installations. So, they know their stuff and Aussie made. https://www.krix.com.au/in-ceiling/ https://www.krix.com.au/surround-x/ For sub, if you have the coins, try dual subs. Bang for bucks, visit the classified section. Try the ported SVS subs. Eg. SVS PB2000. Can be had for around 800 bucks or so.
  12. Pair this with the right amp and they truly sing for you. Great speakers for the asking price. GLWTS.
