so my dynaudios have allegedly bedded in now and they still sound harsh, mostly above -15db. i have some really nice kit now (i think) but they have always sounded harsh to my ears even when i didnt have the 505s driving them or the 561. in fact, in some ways the upgraded kit has accentuated the problem. its possible its just amps running out of steam, but i cant afford to throw keep throwing money at this problem and really the 505s ought to have plenty of power for the sensitivity of the speakers and the size of room they are in. so its bringing me to the conclusion that i just need speakers with a different sound and probably slightly more sensitivity. your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to help me choose which speakers i should put on my audition list. check my sig for the kit list, key differences at the moment are the 3803 is NOT in play, i have a meridian 561 on dem doing processing. all interconnects are gold plated RCAs with OFC copper cable with silver soldering. my room is about 5m long x 3m wide x 2.5m high. my old B&W DM620s are much less fatiguing to listen to, but they don't image and do anything else right, but perhaps B&W is a good first entry on the list... any others? I would be looking to sell my dynaudios and I guess I would have about £800 from the sale of them to spend on the three replacement front speakers.
