Run mine with Cyrus amplification and Audioquest cables, amazing detail and soundstaging from these little Dinkys! if you're looking for small standmounts of the highest quality, these are them!
I have just bought a pair of these and am using a Unison Reasearch S6 to power them. The sound is incredible from such small boxes. They do not need hundreds of watts to drive them but they do appreciate quality amplification.They are sitting on Attacams Nexus stands which seem to suit them. Next step is upgrading the speaker cable, anyone got any ideas?
I have a pair of these hooked up to my Micromega CD, Unison Research Unico and have Transparent cables and interconnects - I can thoroughly recommend the Transparents. The system sounds fabulous across all types of music. DB1i speakers are sitting on Partington Super Dreadnoughts which give them a bit of extra heft.
Try Chord Silverscreen bi-wire (assuming your amp can do bi-wire). The cable takes a little time to settle in, but for the money it makes my DB1i's sing
Which amp did you use? I have a Cyrus 8vs2 with 70 watts per channel.. would that be enough?
I bought these recently to use with my Arcam A28 amp & CD 37 player, through Chord Silverscreen bi-wire cable. It is worth being patient as they just keep getting better & better. Bass is deep for such small speakers, but even that seems to be improving with time and the detail it will make you smile. Next step are new speaker stands & a power amp, can't wait as my DB1i's will sound even better
Excellent litle speakers, great sound and poise on all counts. My only criticism is that the bass could be a little more defined, but then taking their size into account you can't expect too much.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
