Dynaudio Contour 1.8 MKII Floorstanding Speakers

 

Only one word can describe this speaker! WOW! I've had before B&W 601, then 602. After that I've changed to Dynaudio Audience 40, and after that 52se. No one of these speakers before haven't that wide sound stage, details, dynamics and powerfull and...

Dynaudio Contour 1.3 Bookshelf Speakers

 

Legendary speaker. Proud owner since 1993. Still in perfect shape. Throughout the years, I matched them with various components. They sounded always as good as the worst part of the audio chain supplied. Brilliant. Truly reference speakers. If you...

Dynaudio Contour 1.3 Bookshelf Speakers

 

Sorry to say that one reviewer thought these to have a "tubey" sound with non existent bass. I hope that others interested in these speakers did not stop investigating after that horrid review. (Maybe he tested them with a worn out Philco amp or...

Dynaudio Contour 1.8 MKII

 

It took 6 months and 30 stores searching for a set of speakers. I finally was able to trim it down to three brands. Dali, B&W, and Dynaudio. Out of the Dyn's I auditioned the Audience 80's, then the salesman hooked up the Contours 1.8 Mark IIs. They...

1. Dynamics ; 2. Imaging ; 3. Clarity ; 4. Bass ; 5. Mids and highs are true ; 6. The importance of playing your original CDs, the detail is so much better than any mp3/compressed format ; 7. You learn differences between a excellent produced CD, and a...

Others would say the lows are it's weakness, however it is by far not ; important to me. I have my speakers placed a little closer to the corners of the ; room, NOT by choice, because of rest of the objects in the room are fixed ; I have NO problems...

Dynaudio Contour 1.8 MKII Floorstanding Speakers

 

Upgraded to these from Audience 80's. These do not have the bottom end that Audience 80's have. Slightly better detail does not make up for chopped of bottom end.
