just found this thread and it's interesting to read the listing impressions included excess treble.  I felt the same way...out of the box there was a lot of treble coming from this device.  Over say 5 hours this softened and now, about a three or ... 
anybody upgrade from Dynaudio Special 40 to Heritage Special?
soundstage is enormous on the HS...if you find that lacking in your 40s, it could be worth the upgrade on this factor alone. Note: I think the market may have softened a bit on the HS, meaning if you can find one it may not come at the same premi...

New Dynaudio Heritage Special..?..!
@tom6897 -- sounds good I'll let you know how the CODA integrated pairs with the HS speakers.  It's great to know you have been really happy with your CODA setup and that's it's been in place for so many years.  I'm hoping this will be an endgame ...
