Coincident total eclipse to balance the soft swet CJ.

I have not had the opportunity to hear the CA200 with a variety of speakers, but I like it a lot with Dali Helikon 400s, which are midsized speakers.
Since you like the c-j sound, which has been trending toward "neutral", you would probably like the Dalis. The CA and Dalis produce a sweet, warm (but not too warm) sound that I enjoy. If the music rocks or whatever this combo rocks or whatever.
The Mk II Dalis tighten up a little midbass bloom that some people didn't like in the originals. Michael Fremer reviewed them in Stereophile so check that out.
I can no longer tolerate harsh or grainy or hyperdetailed sound and I don't listen to hiphop or compressed, screeching, recent vintage rock. It's fine if you do, but I just wanted to let you know where my tastes lie.
I've owned a CA200 since early this year. I tried it with the Dali Helikon 400 and the Vienna Acoustic Beethoven Baby Grands. I thought that it worked best with the Baby Grands, giving richer, more detailed bass and smoother highs.
If you have a strong preference for the Dalis, it'll work with them, but the VAs were a better match for me.
