Updating my own thread for anyone who finds this:
heard the new Contours at AudioVision in SF. They're dealers of and always pair Dynaudio with Simaudio
and Nordost cable/wiring. So the Contour 30's on demo were plugged into top of the line Simaudio everything, as well as Nordost top of the line. (i.e. probably not what a person would do at home since even the speaker wire probably retails at the price of the speakers themselves, let alone the Sim 870A amp--$24k?.)
The Contour 30s certainly voice differently than the Focus 340s I can compare them against. Better imaging, better vocals. Typical Dyn glare-less fatigue-free listening. Low end didn't seem as robust, which makes sense, being "2.5 way" versus full 3-way speaker. Though the cabinet sizes are right about the same.
I could definitely see upgrading from Focus to the new Contour. Though even in this demo (with reps from Dyn and Sim present) there were mumbles of how beloved the Confidence C1 is. Seems that's still a high-water mark for the company.
