upgrade path from my current speakers? (Dynaudio Special Forty)


have gone through a rotation in the last couple of years, LS50's, Sonus Faber Lumina V's, Heresys, Fortes, Harbeth 30.2's and Habeth Super 5's

none of these sounded good to me

recently landed on Dynaudio Special Forty, loved them, upgraded to Heritage Special, really liked them also but went back to the Special Forty

this is the sound for me by far, nothing else has come close to pleasing me

I'd like to get to a tower that provides more bass and dynamics maintaining this sound profile

Contour and Confidence are on my short list

what else should I be looking at?




I had the sp40 as well. Then moved to Dynaudio Evoke 50.

The bass and dynamics are massive on the evokes. I am still shocked at the difference . The Soundstage is much taller

Heritage Special with the right cables and electronics are quite a bit better than the 40’s . But the 40’s are more tolerant of less expensive gear.

All hail Revival Audio Atalante 3. I've been blown away by the sound of these. Game changer.

If you are still looking to upgrade, Dynaudio Confidence 20s are very special to my ears. I also owned the Evoke 20s and the Evoke 50s. Currently I also own the Revival Audio Atalante 3s in another system, and agree with comments above they sound great too. But the Confidence 20s are at another level IMO.
