This brand has always been one of my favorites and I even bought a 250W amp in case I venture back into this some time soon.

A look at their new Excite speaker line:

Excite Range

Two names, two promises: Dynaudio Excite. The new Excite loudspeaker models combine high end audio performance and pure musical fun.
Dynaudio Excite is instant and non-stop dynamics – sheer entertainment with any music, with any amp, at any volume.

There is now a high end loudspeaker that does not require the highest grade amplifier in order to sound convincing. This is because the Excite models make the most of any amplifier's or receiver's power, quickly and precisely following the music signal, efficiently converting every Watt into nothing but exceptional sound quality.

Dynaudio took advantage of their vast knowledge of loudspeaker technology to develop a unique and unrivaled loudspeaker series that would achieve this elevated level of performance. The Excite comprises legendary Dynaudio innovations such as Magnesium Silicate Polymer (MSP) membranes, die-cast aluminium frame baskets, lightweight aluminium voice coils, and specially coated soft dome tweeters - all united in a new driver design.
Improved magnet structures, enhanced voice coils, optimized first-order (6 dB per octave) crossover networks and further refinement of all relevant technical parameters highlight this exacting high performance loudspeaker series: Life-like dynamics, the utmost musical enjoyment, and the highest level of quality and performance ever achieved from systems in this price class.

The Dynaudio Excite models allow the musical capabilities of every audio system and any source will be fully experienced - with any style of music.

Hey man, I'm running my Focus 110 with a mere Densen integrated. I must say that the Densen can drive and control the pair of bookshelves well in my 5x4m room. And I do listen to my Dyns loud. ;D

Good luck in your hunt!

Excite line is supposed to be more amp friendly too though specs for all models hover ard 87db and 4ohms. Anyway, will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the Contour and Focus range.

According to Dynaudio, they claim that the impedance of the excite range should be closer to 6 ohms rather than 4, and hence easier to drive. The price seems to have increased wrt to the Audience range though. Quite a bummer. Also, the new mid/bass driver without the cone/dome takes away the iconic look that is so of typical of Dyns.

That driver actually reminds me of the old Contour 1.1.

Excite X 12

Note this is based on a MSRP of USD 1200, which is not what we pay for it here.

Conclusion

In some ways, Dynaudio’s Excite X12 won’t seem too, um, exciting, at least for its price. It’s very well built and nicely finished -- but at $1200/pair, it should be. It has a fairly neutral tonal balance and is very well extended in the highs, but its size limits its bass extension. The X12 is fairly easy to drive and should work well with a wide variety of amps, but it will play only so loud, and is better suited to a small- or mid-sized room than to a large one. In that way, it’s kind of ho-hum.

But any ho-hum quality is overcome by the Excite X12’s tremendous strengths. The X12s do the best "disappearing" act of any small speaker I know of at or near its price. Voices and instruments exit the cabinets leaving no hint of where they came from. The X12s also create a sense of spaciousness that make them sound like much larger speakers, and lay out a soundstage with first-rate precision. The midband is marvelously detailed and beautifully fleshed out -- voices sound natural, real, and alive, and the way they leap from these little boxes is impressive to hear. Last but not least, the X12’s highs extend freely, cleanly, and sweetly. These are traits that beg comparison with speakers considerably higher in price.

Every loudspeaker is a balance of compromises. You can’t get everything out of a pair of small boxes -- there will always be deficiencies. But it’s the Dynaudio Excite X12’s considerable strengths that make it special, even unique -- I don’t know of another small speaker that plays quite like this one. The Excite X12 is now one of my favorite small speakers, and certainly is something to get excited about.

I think you actually need high current amp instead of high power amp to drive these speakers, just like the Thiels.

Hope that it’s not too high-end. Not those expensive spk than can only be admired but can’t afford to buy.
It will be great if it’s a new version of Contour or range below.
