The other day i looked at,watched some youtube videos of the Dynaudio DM 2/6 & DM 2/7, other then the size, weight,price,4 vs 6 ohm and a crossover that's not more different then the size of woofer, there isn't much difference. The power handling,sensitivity, frequency respons is the same, some times a speaker reviewed by whathifi like the B&W 686,685,684 sounds a bit different, they get 3,4 and 5 stars starting from the smal one,the dynaudio's both get 5 stars and there seems to be nothing that's different about the sound, as there often could be if you compare 2 speakers from the same brand and series like the B&W 686/685 (started to look at them when i so an add where a store was selling the DM 2/7 with discount, for the same price as the DM 2/6) 

Even the DM2/6 i have heard have a boomy bas (lots of bass) so it's not like the DM 2/6 don't have enough bass for most people,which for me is a good thing, beacuse then i wouldn't need a subwoofer if i bought a pair of DM 2/6

 

I am not at the moment gonna upgrade to the dynaudio's, mabye in 6 month, from my zensor 1 and jamo sub 200 that adds some bass the zensors is missing,  unless you have a mic to messaure the frequency response, it could be difficult to adjust a subwoofer, especially in my case where my zensors are playing full frequency (not cut of in the bass, only have a reciver with no electronic crossover for the dalis) and the dalis might not be so powerfull in the mid bass (100-200hz)

Hi

Maybe you need to demo a set of Dynaudio X12, will provide you with a rich and a fast bass response! Keep in mind that the Dyns X12 are a detailed speaker and a smoth and silky mid range. 

Listening right now to Alchemy Romeo and Juliet (vinyl) and you can ear over the music  al the small noises of the crowd... 

Really, a special set of speakers!

I demoed the 2/7s against the X12s and agree completely with Mr Outlaw.

 I have the Dyn 2/7's and i can say the rock! they are an amazing speaker. I have heard very good things regarding the x12's so bear them in mind too, i would audition all. The tweeters on my 2/7's are incredible, as is the other driver. So fast, and have a beautiful sound.I am sure mine sound better than the ones i listened to in the shop too as mine have finally warn in. they took over a month i think to stop being so boomy and now the ranges all blend in together to my ears perfectly. basically when i was buying these speakers, i heard the 2/6's and then the 2/7's and wanted more base, so went with the 2/7's. I have a small room, and i do not find them too basy at all. just right for me. and they keep getting better. love them.

  hi radiorog, slightly off

 

hi radiorog,

slightly off topic, may i know the size of your room approx. and how you have placed the speakers, distance from wall, between them and listening position and on which stands etc.

Actually i have the same speakers in a small room and having problems with it, Dynaudio on their website mentions 2/7 is for medium size rooms ..

RE: hi radiorog,slightly off

 Hi Opium, how's it going.

 Well, yesterday i purchased a new amp, my rega brio-r, and this morning i did actually notice a little more boom than my old amp, that clearly had less bass weight. so on more bassy cd's i am placing the bungs in the rear ports, but only just in, not all the way. just enough to hold them in place as i am suspicious that the SQ will be effected otherwise. With the bungs in place, the excessive boom had comletely gone. So thats good....for now! lol.

 My room is about 4x5m. I have one speaker on a chest of drawers...22cm away from rear wall. chest o.d is about 1 m high. the other speaker is on top of a wardrobe, about 180cm tall.this one is more in the corner, but again 22cm away from rear wall and about 30cm away from side wall. they are 130cm away from each other (centre of mid-driver to mid-driver). 

 I am currently playing around with bungs in and out to see how it effects SQ.  the effects seem to be not a lot if anything...might even be positive  effect i guess, as without the boom you can sometimes hear other frequecies that might have been "boomed over".

 I highly expect i will keep these speakers instead of downsizing and just use the bungs, and hopefully move into a larger room one day! 

 Other than that, they sound awesome.

I would experiment with isolating the speakers from the furniture. You could try Granite Worktop Savers sitting on rubber feet (speakers on Blu-tac) or Auralex Speakerdudes (check size).

RE: hi radiorog,slightly off

 Thanks for advice Cno.,

 what do you think would sound best, blue tac, speaker dudes, or granite? do spike isolaters work?

 Thanks. The bungs have to stay i think for now, def a bit boomy without.

I was afraid you'd ask me that.

If you get the Granite from somewhere like Argos (around £10), you can return it for a refund.

So you might try this as the cheaper solution. ie. Small blobs of Blu-tac between speaker and Granite, and rubber (or Sorbothane) feet under Granite (you can use big blobs of Blu-tac if you're not worried about  it (possibly) leaving a stain on the furniture.

I think the Auralex might be better, but it's worth trying the above first. It should make a good difference

RE: What is the difference between the Dynaudio DM 2/6 & DM 2/7

 Hifi outlaw, how far away do you have to place the x12's to stop them from being boomy? My DM 2/7's are boomy at 22cm. would the x12's be boomy this far from a wall do you think?

 Thanks.
