Scansonic mb3.5 vs mb5b
Thanks verdantaudio for the very informative reply. Based on everything you said it makes sense why the mb5b would be more costly than the mb 3.5b. As it is, cost wise the 3.5 would make more sense as I would just be experimenting with the scanson... 
Ok guys
Wow.. ok guys, from the sound of so many EXPERT opinions, do you think I should remove the top cover of my SACD and any/all my bluray players? From a few opinions, it sounds like if I let all my redbook CDs lie out in the open they should sound mo... 
Any cable delivers more bass than Cardas Golden Reference?
I dunno.. snake oil or not.. I think If u really want to believe something (in this case bass enhancing cables) enhances ur experience, by all means dive right In! The power of the human mind is quite extraordinary! 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
I haven't once, not ever heard of lack of bass complaint on the C4. But I agree, for me it would be too big and tall. I may have switched my focus to the upcoming confidence 30.. unless I get an absolute steal for a pair of c2.. and even those are...

Jmlm, would you care to delve into your thoughts on the kanta a bit more? Was it the kanta no. 2? I don't know much about focal other than they make use of beryllium tweeters since I've owned paradigm signature speakers with beryllium tweeters in ...

I'm sure the bolero supremes sound amazing, I just don't think I could ever get used to the looks of them. To each his own, as they say! 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
I dunno about the silverline audio bolero supremes.. they look awfully similar to some old school sony ss speakers that actually were legit, I just don't know about the looks anymore. These days, speaker manufacturers can make a loudspeaker functi... 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
I still haven't been able to directly compare both lines, but I had made an inquiry about a contour 30 and the seller did say the confidence platinum line is the better line.. and followed that up by offering to order/sell me a pair of new confide... 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
So recently I was able to sell off my paradigm signature s6 v3 and an svs sb13+ subwoofer for cold card cash. I want honest opinions and a no sales man approach. I still haven't heard a convincing argument of the confidence c2 vs contour 30. I alr... 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
So being that this thread has bloomed into something more than it's title, what suggestions would anyone have for a dedicated 2 channel preamp to go with dynaudio confidence or the newer contour series? I'm not about to announce a TKO for my maran... 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
@shingyOne of the main reasons I started this thread is because I have an opportunity to grab a pair of C2's mkII but would require me to trade my C1s and I'm just not sure I want to do that.. I love them too much! lolI have a pair of Paradigm S6 ...

Thanks for the great insight everybody, much appreciated!shingy, some day I hope to have a dedicated 2 channel pre amp, but that will have to wait. (money and space constraints are the guilty party) The av8802a has a very nice clean sound to it, b...

Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
Yup, been very impressed with the C1s in what they CAN do! As far as really deep, visceral bass that you can feel, I'll just turn on my subs :D (I just prefer not to)... I hear what you're saying on the Contour 60s likely giving me the bass I desi... 
Dynaudio Contour 30 vs Confidence C2 comparisons
I run dual paradigm sub 15s, but i prefer to listen to the C1s (for music) without any sub at all, believe it or not. The current room (I will likely be moving sometime this year) has enough bass response where its not really an issue GENERALLY sp...
