Hegel H70 + Dynaudio X12 (on Dynaudio Stand 1 stands) with Supra 2.5mm speakers wires.

All my music goes into the amp from a computer, through the USB connection and the amp's internal DAC (16 bits/48KHz). The sound that comes out of this simple set up is truly amazing!

The system is in a room that's 13x6 metres. The punch and the bass these little speakers provide (without ever losing control) is unbelievable.

HTH.

Hi.

No. Sorry. The H100 was not available. It would have been beyond my budget anyway, so I didn't bother asking for a test box.

I auditioned the following:

- Marantz PM7004 (with SA7003 SACD player)

- Creek Evolution 2 (with Evolution 2 CD player)

- Revox Joy S119 (with my PC via wired Ethernet)

- Electrocompaniet ECI3 (with ECC1 CD player)

- Dynaudio XEO3 wireless active speakers (with XEO3 DAC/transmitter hooked to my PC)

All very different beasts. All very good in their own way, except the Creek, which turned the Dynaudios to absolute dull boxes. It was a total let down (it was better with easier speakers, though).

As for speakers, we used some Dalis, Dynaudio DM 2/6, DM 2/7, Excite X12, XEO3 and Focus 16, KEF R500, Anthony Gallo Reference 3.5.

Hi there! I promise I'll post some as soon as the apartment is all finished with furniture and all. It'll take some time, but I promise I'll post back for you to see how it looks like, alright? Cheers, mate  Wink

Well, Any update on this? You went for the Hegel H70 + Dynaudio X12 combo? Are you satisfied by the Hegel?

Anyone had the chance to listen to H100?
