    Bet they do! This was totally unexpected, felt in love right at the moment the audition started!

    Hi Joao Miguel, I really liked them the first time I heard them, but don’t seem to get myself to replace the Harbeths. I’m still undecided.

    But I hope you enjoy your Boenickes.

    I dumped the Reference 3a last Fall for the Falcon LS3/5a (my 4th pair of /5as!). much better, like an old pair of shoes - in the best sense!

    I know the felling, had Dynaudio for the last 15 years, Special 25, X12, Focus 160. Recently demo the Special 40 and the New Contour 20, and believe me, it wasn’t easy to turn by back on Dynaudio for the first time ever.... That shows how impressed I was with this puppies when I listen to them for the first time... Like Sven Boenicke say: “Swiss Happiness in a Box”

    Heard the W5’s at AXPONA and was very impressed. They give the Trenner & Friedl Art’s a run for their money. Check out this shootout between the two:

    I must concur with that statement. The Arts sound a bit lean in comparison.

    I already have read the W5 review but didn’t see this one. Nice reading, thanks for sharing.
