After all of the talking Mantis has done on the Dynaudio, I had to demo some. Now I want some, But my budget says NO WAY, unless Russ is buying.
So While I was on a working road trip to Jacksonville, I decided to stop in on a local by appointment only Dynaudio dealer.
I Demoed 1 bookshelf and 3 floor models
1 bookshelf model that was listed as on sale for 2495.00. Nothing else in the store speaker wise has a tag, nor did any other items except sale items.
The bookshelf demo:
It was the dynaudio BM15a
sized between the rt35 and rt55. Very impressive Bookshelf, I have heard non better.
Incredibly transparent. Soundstage is very good.
The Fullrange models:
Now I know why MANTIS loves dynaudio.
DQ-10's or 20's dont even compare to these three models, Sorry Troy. These three models and polk shouldn't be in the same sentence.
This is Troy speaker's Talk about in the chest thumping Base but it is very tight and accurate. Incredibly transparent, Soundstage is Outstanding. Mids and high are unbelievable.
All I can say about this speaker is WOW! I was totally blown away by these.
These are the most incredible sounding speakers I have ever heard. Now these are my dream speakers.
Four Dynaudio 30W100 (12") bass drivers, Two Dynaudio 17W75XL Neodymium Low Mid (6.5"), One Dynaudio M560 Double Magnet Upper mid range dome (2") and One Dynaudio T330 Double Magnet tweeter (1"). Some specs 24hz to 22k crossed over at 250Hz, 2kHz, and 5.6 kHz. Typical Peak SPL -133dB SPL @ 2m, 2 cabs driven
A smaller version ot the M4's
The only thing I can compare them to is th M4. Not quite as dynamic.
I like the port plug option: +/- 3db range = 35Hz - 22kHz ported / port plug installed 28Hz - 22khz
Two Dynaudio 30W100 XL (12") bass drivers, Two Dynaudio 15W75 mid range (6" with 3" voice coils) ,One Dynaudio Esotar T330 tweeter
MA1: These were on sale. list $7950.00 sale 5499.00 each. I didnt ask the price on the other two.
The salesman did the demo in the wrong order, he started with the M4. so by the time you get to these, they just dont compare to the M4. Not that you could call it a bad speaker. Its a great It just seem like the difference was like comparing the rt10 to the rt55.
They are still great sounding speakers.
Two Dynaudio 24W100 (9.5") bass drivers, One Dynaudio D76 Neodymium 2.75" mid range dome, One Dynaudio Esotar T330 tweeter
with those port plugs, I lke that feature. Polk should copy that ideal.
These were rated at the =/- 2 db level. 32Hz - 22kHz ported, 24Hz - 22kHz infinite baffle
Now I know what mantis feels like when he go home.
Mantis do you carry any of these models or have heard them? You have never mention them on the forum.
