I am looking for a speaker upgrade with a speaker in the €4000,- - €5000,- range.
I already have listened quickly to a pair of Dali Epicon 2 on NAD separates and I want to further listen them on my own equipment but what I've already heard was lovely. Also love the looks of them.
Speakers I want to audition besides the Epicons are: Dynaudio Contour 20, Audiovector SR1 Avantgarde Arrete and Monitor Audio PL100 II.
What I am looking for is a sparkling (but not fatiguing) high end, a lovely mid-end and a bold, fundamental low end. Not sure if I am expressing myself right, but those are the words that I think of if I want to express my feelings about a certain speaker.
My Excites are already lovely but I've heard the difference in SQ when I've heard the Epicons, very entertaining.
Are there any owners of above speakers (and system) who can enlighten me about their sound, maybe you've also heard other speakers which you've disliked?
