DynAudios feature a "sweet, smooth top end and superb retrieval of fine detail." But what made the DynAudios so special "is their capacity for sounding huge." The imaging has a "deliriously wide sound stage and better than average depth." The Contour T2.5 reminded our reviewer of Read More

The Sonus Faber Cremona "delivers sublime performance while acknowledging that people have to look at/live with the equipment." It delivers "bass which belies its size" and will "disappoint only the brain-damaged." These speakers "never wavered when faced with bombastic material, or when asked on occasion to play louder than my norm..." Read More

The replacement for the Wamm and now in the X-2 model these are the top dog of stereo speakers. If you have the room and are willing to treat the room and feed these big boys from the finest electronics they are undoubtedly one of the best speakers ever made. Click here for a full review. Read More
