    Re: Dynaudio Contour 60

    Here’s a link to a dynaudio page stating 30 hours of break in: https://www.dynaudio.com/dynaudio-academy/2017/august/how-to-set-up-your-speakers

    David Rossmann, My guess is that no one at...

    Re: Dynaudio Contour 60

    I've purchased the following Dynaudios brand new: Excite X16, Contour S1.4, Focus 340, Confidence C1, Special 25, Excite 34.

    I agree that many Dynaudio owners believe in long break in. But I...

    Better than the alternative, sitting there thinking my ears are infallible and buying snake oil left and right. Besides, I’m not saying I know everything about acoustic science, I‘m merely saying...

    Re: Dynaudio Contour 60

    While I agree that speakers are mechanical and that they could potentially change when they are very first put into use, I think it’s likely that that change would occur quickly and over a short...

    Re: Dynaudio Contour 60

    Given your description I’d say they were broken. Your experience contradicts many professional reviews not to mention a substantial number of contour owners.

    Re: New!!! Klipsch Cornwall IV .....

    Well said! I own Cornwall IIIs and love them. I tried several amps with them including a Rogers tube IA but ultimately I found a musical fidelity m5si was a superb match. These speakers seem...

    Re: Dynaudio Contour 60

    Understood and I can respect that you are genuinely describing what you experienced. It just seems very odd to me that a speaker can go from a 4 to a 10 in sound quality due to break in. Ultimately...

    Re: Dynaudio Contour 60

    Wow, interesting thread. Going to throw my 2 cents out there since it's somewhat out of line with the general consensus. I personally put zero stock in long periods of speaker "break in". While I...

    Re: What is Really Important...

    Hmmm...well, I don't think it can be distilled in such black and white terms. I think speaker placement, listener position, and room acoustics play a role, but for me, as long as those things are...

    Re: The best money I ever spent in audio is....

    Thanks for the shout out. Well, I will say that the Aavik U300 is cool as Sh't! That is one sweet looking piece of technology. I'll also say that if I were going down the raidho route, the 2.1s...

    Without a doubt devialet. Dac, pre, amp all in one. Simplifies everything, eliminates many cables, sounds world class, is gorgeous, and costs less than anything it competes with.

    Re: Devialet Upgrade Processing Available

    Looks like it was just a group of people listening blind and scoring the sound. Not what I would call a scientific test. If your ran the same test 10 times does anyone think they'd get the same...

    AND I'm even MORE skeptical of a blind test. I have not read this report but if it was a group of people picking which sounds better, that is laughable. That proves absolutely nothing unless they...

    Re: Devialet Upgrade Processing Available

    Personally I take those reports with a huge grain of salt. How much better can it really sound. The signal to noise ratio on the last gen is already vanishingly small. And by most reviewer accounts...

    I agree with you guys, but it's not as much a no brainer for me. I've heard some incredible headphone systems and they crush a similarly priced bookshelf rig in terms of absolute sound quality. ...

    I replaced the strap. It came on a very nice black gator strap, but I did not feel black did the watch justice.

    Re: Devialet Phantom in the house

    I've thought from day one this product would fail in the market. I might be way wrong, but I still don't think anyone but audiophiles and the very wealthy will spend more than $1000 on a music...
