Man these guys must be quite bizarre, maybe they did not hear the right pairing with your speaker as the C1 and C2 are absolutely

It was just one person. They bought the DM2/6 cause it had more warmth. I have not heard the DM2/6, but the 3/7s were a much more forward sound then any of the Excites and Contours.

So are you still working?

What the hell I did not feel that with the 3/7 vs the X32 maybe the pairing boraudio vs T&A not sure if tha makes any sense but true it was not side by side comparaison but I thought they were close tonally speaking.

The Excites use a variation of the Contour S1.4s D280 tweeter that I spoke about yeasterday, the D28Titan. So the tone and performance of the Excites tweeter is pretty similar. Of course the Contour tweeter produces better detail and a larger soundstage, but the Excites tone and the 1.4s are close. I got to hear the DM 3/7s and S1.4s in the same room at the same time. Both on T+A gear, the KT88 blu-ray receiver. At the same volume level the 3/7s were louder then the Contours. Know IDK if that has to do with the sensitivity, 86(3/7s) v 85(s1.4), but that 1 db shouldn't make that much of a difference. Even Sunny's helper was surprised at the sound level difference between the 2. The lower trebble, IMO, is a little tipped up.

What's going on?

How is your day going? Have the little "angels" brought the house down yet?

Don't let what one guy says about your speakers get you down. I bet dollars to donuts, he's never even heard them in person. There's always a few people over at AVS that like to get a bit uppity.

Oh, Im not worried. thanks Wabo. What I found funny is that guy bought Dynaudio's lowest entry level speaker.... maybe he doesn't like detail, soundstage, imaging and bass; all things you get as you move up the ladder more and more.

It sounds like this guy is trying to rationalize purchasing the entry level line by dissing the high end models. water off a ducks back, amigo.

thats hillarious... you know, she might be the kingpin to a whole club known as "the wifes of bd.com members", and they'll all lurk and see the kinds of things we discuss... then one day you'll come home and she'll say, "So, I see you have been discussing get a new Subwoofer. What is wrong with the other 2 you have?"

More then likely it's something simple, but how did you make Callas01 from callahan or change s01/han.

Silly me was thinking your first name was Callas...

****EDIT****

I was going to tell my wife about this, but I just decided not to give her any ideas... lol

when I was in college we got email addresses when email and internet was still in its infancy, 1994. they did it buy using your first 5 letters of your last name Callahan (CALLA) the 1 letter of your first name Steve(S), and then the number was the designation of if you were the first(01), second(02), tenth(10), fifty-second(52). So since UCR had just introduced email that year, I was the first CALLAS... therefore I got the 01 number... CALLAS01.

I used it for my hotmail account when email became more prominent... and its just stayed with me since.

So then, is your first name Hamp?

lol... I was typing fast and my wife was calling me, and I wasn't thinking. After I sent the posting and after answering my wife question, everything you explained already had popped into my head. I was typing so fast, I type 'first name' instead of 'last name'. We were running late, I couldn't edit my post.

HAMP, has always been a nick and short for Hampton. Most of the time, I'm called HAMP by someone before they learn my screen name.
