The audience 52 of Dynaudio are really nice speakers I agree. I listened to them together with the 18 year old daughter Margreet (she attends the school of Music in Amsterdam) of my wife in a local hifi shop and compared them to the Quad 11L speakers and dynaudio audience 42 (also amazing). Well, the 52's were very convincing; no boom in the low frequency range, very articulate, very "spacious" (good sound stage) as Margreet kept saying with all the different music we tried: solo piano, chambre music with recorders, orchestra, orchestra with choir, female voices and pop music. There was no specific music for which the 52's sounded best; it was all good. I can't wait to have them in the house (they will be for Margreet) and hear the difference with my 18 year old highly appreciated (see audioreview.com) KEF's 104.2 speakers. I'm afraid I will want to upgrade to more modern and better speakers. We also listened that day to KEF's Q1 and B&W 302 speakers and others, but although not bad, they are no match for Dynaudio. I am happy to read in your review, dear Strngcheesefan, that placement is not a big problem!
