Chiming in here (new to the forums).
I’ve had the 8Cs for about a month now, and continue to be blown away.
They’ve effectively unseated 3 other systems active in my home, and about 25 years of experimenting in this hobby.
Systems mentioned, include a pair of Kef LS50 Wireless, which might be on par with the Dutch in terms of perceived speed and coherence, but offer nowhere near the sense of scale and output, a full range, high sensitivity Oris/AER horn rig, sitting on a double stack of Lyngdorf W210 corner subs (the bass on the Dutch 8Cs simply outclasses the Lyngdorfs in every way, and the Lyngdorfs are quite good), and lastly, full range electrostatics, supported by a quad of 18s. The stats, given their dipole nature, play better depth of field tricks, but that again, are no where near as enjoyable to listen to as the Dutch and Dutch.
The 8Cs seem to defy physics, and provide a performance that outsizes my horn rig, in a package slightly larger than the Kef Ls50.
Game changing in my humble opinion.
If anyone is interested, I added some virtual system pics earlier today.
