Dynaudio C1 and Pass amp
I have that exact combo in my den. It's great at lower levels but when you turn it up you can some of the dynamic range go away imho. Then again I have tinnitus so what do I know, lol 
How to introduce computer audio to my system?
Great question/answers! I run sonos feeding a wyred4sound dac2 listening to mog. It's okay but honestly not great. Looking to hook up my mini mac using high res files and was suprised to hear mog streams that high a rate. Maybe I won't be hooking ...

Amp to drive Dynaudio C-1
I'm listening to them right now with a 30.5 pass amp. It sounds okay, but it's a somewhat lean compared to tubes IMHO. I'd say it has juice to play up to moderate/loud fine. Reno hifi iirc will let you try them out if you pay shipping, no affiliat...

Review: Cable shootout Nordost, Purist, Synergistic, MIT Speaker cable
I agree that Venustas are quite detailed yet not edgy or bright. The TG Audio cables are quite good also. Venustas is pretty much in the sweet spot on the price/performance curve IMO, maybe a bit beyond it.May own Dominus one day, but need to upgr... 
Best overall Speakers for $2,500.00 or less, New?
Ellery911, hehe.If you really want a special speaker at a low price point check the quad esl-63.Some $$$$ later get some jc-1's fed direct by a cdp and you have a system better than what lots of high end shops demo ime.
