haha, yup maybe you can start the ball rolling by telling us about your HT setup. hows your dyna with the XPA-3? at 1 point i did wanna order the XPA-3 for my thiels too. but i am still abit concerned about driving dyna 4ohm spks direct with my Denon AVR. (even when Nicholas told me can...  :P) the Denons are only 6ohms to 16ohms recommended. 4ohms might run hot and shut down(this the manual did stated). Should extra power amps be needed?

Infact, I started by using the Pioneer AX4i to drive the Focus 110, 200c & 42sat. Indeed the receiver can drive them well without any stress on the amp. It can realy handle the 85dB/4ohms well and I set the receiver to run at 8 ohms instead of 6 giving it a little increased in power in 4 ohms load. Lots of my friends were very surprised that I'm using it with just a receiver. For the past 1 year, the amp didn't even clip even when I drive it at -13dB volume which is already very loud in my place :P

The Focus really filled my place without any fatigue either on HT or Stereo  :D :D Deep tight low rumbling bass from the SUB300 but it didn't sound like SVS :P which to me it's like it going to bring down the house :P :P Sorry I'm not familiar with SVS.

Lastly, heard from lots of our bros here that the Emotiva power amp are good value and can perform well. I didn't manage to audition it although some of our bros here already owned it, I took the courage and ordered a XPA3 for a try :P Well, indeed the power amp is good value for the money, smooth with fin detail without any edgyness at all. For sure it sound much better than using the receiver itself. Better bass grip, more focus midrange and the highs extensions is also not compromise. So bro out there, if your're still having doubts on whether to purchase the Emotiva amps or processor, I would say "Mai Tu Liao" ;D ;D

Hope I'm not so long winded, hope this helps with your faster decisions on the Excite. ;D

I believe any power amp will be better than most receivers.

Hi Bro

Just wonder where is all the Dynaudio fans? Seems no one interested to post or share their setup here. SAD.


Me using Exposure 2010 CDP > Exposure Super XX integrated amp > Dynaudio Contour 1.1 with Ocos cables.

haha yeah. saw you have 1007Be and partial dynas so hows you setting up now? HT? Stereo?

Now only left with Dyns for the HT LCR. My hall side and rear walls are too far away from my sofa to use the Dyns for surrounds so bo bian gotta find substitutes in the form of the Mirage sats on the ceiling :(. The Focals are for my stereo in a separate setup ;)

I've heard the Dyns driven by a Pioneer rx at the Dyn showroom and it has no prob driving them. I feel the current range of Dyns like the Focus and Excite are quite easy to drive compared to the older series, but of cos feeding them a poweramp will always give them a kick up the backside and improve the sound. ;D

Fully agreed with you domj :D

If the new Dyns are so hard to drive. I think they can packup and close the factory. So hard to drive who wants to buy them? ???

Nice setup, I can see your room has done proper treatment. Do you use any equipment to measure the Freq. Response?

Thank you for signing one. We need more Dynaudio fans to be active here and share.

Thank you

clitang, no, i didn't. Just based on my own listening test. Room treatment played a major role in setting up stereo & ht.

kuryakin, I've posted my whole room image except the ceiling is bare. ::)

Left from my sitting position


Right with subwoofer from my sitting position. Thinking of adding another svs sub to place on the left.

Totally agreed. I am having some treatment issue with my room. Still finding the best way to solve it.

May I ask where did you purchase those bass trap? Price? Can PM or post here if you don't mind.

Thank you

Sure you want to do it?

Just to share my experience, when I am in HK some months back. My friend invited me to his house to listen to his new system. The setup is C1, Jeff Rowland 500 Int Amp, Esoteric SA-50 CD/SACD player and connected with Siltech cables. Due to curiosity and itchy backside, I went to his house. After that I came out with tears rolling from my eyes. From that day onwards, I can't sleep well, thinking how to safe up and change my hifi gear.......

FYI, I used to own CS2.4 also.
