No. Have heard the Ikon 2 (originals) and they sounded really impressive.
Could we more info: What amp, for instance...
If the shoes don't fit, change the horse.
Well, just wanted to hear some thoughts from someone who has heard them, and also which would fit with them..
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 * Rotel RCD-965BX * Pioneer A-400 or Denon PMA720ae (mood dependent) * Rega RS1 * Beyer Dynamic DT770PRO (250 Ohm) * All cables by Atlas *
A system of hi-fi classics!
