I have listened to the Dyn 25 and own the ARC. The ARC very uncolored due to its design, materials, and contruction. Golden Ears is right on with placement flexibility, ease to drive, and even tonal balance at low volumes. I will add that they are very dynamic and can be played at very loud volumes. The ARC is one of the best speakers I have listened to at any price (or size). At 3600 (std finish w/stands) they are a great value.
