Is there a perfect speaker?
The question is a philosophical one, so I have a philosophocal answer: The perfect speaker is the one God listens to when God isn't listening to trees falling in the forest when no one is around. (h/t Bishop Berkeley)

I haven't switched from one to the other, but I auditioned both brands when I was last in the market for speakers. After listening to Dynas, both some Focus models and the Contour 3.4, for several hours at a dealer's, I thought they sounded very g...
