No. Have heard the Ikon 2 (originals) and they sounded really impressive.

Could we more info: What amp, for instance...

Amp; CDP; Turntable; Tuner; Speakers

RE: Dali ikon 2, mk2?

I've never heard a bad Dali speaker.  Always supremely involving and musical.

I tried the original Ikon 1s briefly on loan and I loved their holographic imaging and beautifully open treble and upper midband.  They just lacked a touch of weight for some of the music I listen to but I would imagine the larger 2s would correct that issue.

Marantz is always a good partner for Dali.  However, I've also had success pairing Dali speakers with NAD and Rotel where the additional punch seems to really suit the speakers.

Pioneer PL12D II * Audio Technica AT95e * Denon DCD720ae * Denon PMA720ae * Mission MX2 * Beyer Dynamic DT770PRO (250 Ohm) * 'Billy Basic' cables - freebie interconnects and cheap copper multi-strand speaker cable *
