    I am not sure which stands but it's black for ease of maintenance. I use a tube line stage and solid state amp to have sufficient juice on tap. Love it thus far and even in any volume I can listen more with less fatigue.

    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.

    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.

    I would love to hear your notes comparing the C1 to the D1.

    Re: Finally got my C1!

    I too thought the Dyn C1 monitor was the best for many years (about 5) especially for the money. And for the money I still do but I have yet to hear the new cf20 (which is basically a evidence level monitor). That said one day my local dealer invited me over to hear a new monitor he picked up. I spent about 2 hrs listening to my C1 sig's before going over (about a 15 min ride). When I got there he had these Raidho D1's. I listened to them with the same music I had played at home. What I heard was much clearer mids - smoother highs and a much tighter/faster lows. Now the D1's didn't dig as deep but for what they could do they do was much more accurate to my ears. The sound stage and imaging was like nothing I had ever heard. I'll also go as far to say the Dyns' had better dynamics. So after about an hour he said let's go for a ride to a clients house. When I asked where and why were going there he said it was to hear Raidho's current flagship - the original D3. We picked up a mutual friend who was a Dyn C4 sig owner and when we got there and listened neither of us could believe what we heard. It was like music was just coming out of the walls. The imaging and depth was unreal. His room was new construction with no treatments and minimal furniture. After asking what they cost I was in shock. The D1's in Walnut burl retailed for 29.5K with stands and the D3's retailed for 66K in black. Unfortunately they were so far from my budget I wanted to forget about them. But I couldn't for months. That sound I couldn't get out of my head. I knew the lows didn't dig as deep but since I already had a Rel B3 I thought I could get the lows the C1's had. I did get them but after almost 2 years I just couldn't get the sub to blend in to what I wanted. The lows bled to much into the mids. When a deal came up with the D2's I got them and that satisfied my want for deeper lows. From there I went to the D2.1's and later to the D3.1's with each having more layers of resolution.

    To this day I think the Dyn Confidence is a great value for the money. But for my tastes I want a more natural/organic sound. Some say the Raidho's are too analytical and sterile sounding but I disagree. IMO They are just as musical with great prat but with many more layers of resolution. Today I have the Borresen 03's and they have even more clarity and speed with greater dynamics than Raidho's.
