    Get the Dyn stand6. You won't use the top plate (I don't think). Well that's how it was with the Stand4 (out of production). They are the proper height and with the spikes they will sound the best.

    Yeah the Dyn C1's is the only speaker I ever heard where they sound great out of the box the go to $hit and get better again. If you aren't aware the internal wiring was also upgraded with the MKII/Sig/Platinum to the next level of Van Den Hul. But the internal wiring doesn't like speaker/power or interconnect wires.

    Dyn's Esotar2 tweeter is phenomenal. 2nd best I've ever heard and for the 5 yrs I owned them there was never a fatiguing sound.

    The stand6 looks like a common stand and I think a plinth is provided to mount the C1. Visually I think the stand4 looks more sturdy and visually pleasing...preference I guess. Not sure if it sound any different.

    Re: Finally got my C1!

    When I asked Mike M from Dynaudio why they dropped the stand4 for the stand6 he stated the 4 had a ring to it. I had both standard all black and later the black/chrome stands and never heard the ring he was talking about. I never got the stand6 because I liked the look of the stand4 better.

    welll for my taste the C1 is the best "monitor" available.....the D1 is a good speaker but the C1 is better......no way!

    I think a monitor has its benefits and limitations. Physically with only two drivers it's delivering a lot unless you have a big space. At this price range there plenty of options too but I still like to have a small package versus a floor stander for practical reasons.

    End of the day so long you enjoy the music that's all it matters

    Re: Finally got my C1!

    Very nice. I absolutely love my C1 Platinums. I bought a pair of dealer demos so I did not experience the "out of box" or break in experience. They are on the Stand6 that I have filled with ultra fine sand with spikes on the bottom plinth that rest on stainless steal "cups" to protect a hardwood floor. They have a floor stander like sound presence in a compact monitor. I could not be more pleased.
