It's good to see twin binding posts to cater for us bi ampers but im not sold on the styling. sound quality aside, they look too close to the wharfedale diamond 12 standmounts but with a different tweeter plate shape and without the ridges on the cone.
It's interesting that there was no score on these speakers. Ed did explain by saying 'to prevent them being inadvertently discovered by people/crawlers'. Not quite sure what that means but I'm sure there is a good reason.
Secondly is the issue for all AV Forums speaker reviews, that of running in speakers. I'm currently up to around 70 hours on my Special 40's and have noticed a massive change in sound characteristics during this period. At one stage they sounded simply awful, wooly bass dominating everything which has now thankfully improved but after speaking to Dynaudio Customer support they still think I need at least another thirty more hours. How can a new speaker review be accurate when they probably have not been fully run in, or do Manufacturer's only send out fully run in speakers for review ?
