I had a chance to demo the Dynaudio Excite X14 and in a word: amazing. These speakers replace the Excite X12. The audio store had these powered by the Rega Brio-R integrated amp. I found these small monitors incredible. I have have been listening to some of the most popular monitors including the B&W CM5, and Kef LS-50. I think the Dynaudio were significantly better. They had more detail and a tight bass.
Just like some other forum users, I found the KEF LS-50 were somewhat underwhelming. I though they were great but compared to the other speakers I've listened to were, they did not live up to their reviews. Although setup may have something to do with it.
Does anyone have thoughts on the Excite X14?
