Hi everyone. Just plugged in my new Dynaudio Special 40 today. After about four hours they are quite something. Anyone else have these? Please share your thoughts on them. :D

They resemble Totem (no doubt because Totem has often used Dynaudio drivers in their speakers).

Here's a good review:

I'm betting they sound stellar. Enjoy!

Not anymore. Dynaudio stopped OEM supply years ago. Totem uses HiVi drivers on some of their models – at a quick glance they look almost identical to Dynaudio

True. But oddly enough Totem's haven't been the same without Dynaudio drivers lol.

They rule!

I have been listening to them almost exclusively since they came out.

Bass is hard to reproduce with such a small woofer. Needs a big amp to even start doing bass well. That little 6 can do wonders.

small Dynaudio speakers were always my choice for great monitor speaker. I even auditioned the new Contour series when I was looking for the best speakers for my Zanden 6000 amplifier....
