Default New Confidence line

A friend/long time industry guy sent me a video of the Conf20 playing, he thought they sounded fantastic. Sounded that way to me too via video. Look forward to hearing them myself someday. They said the pair at Axpona was only the 2nd pair in the country. Talk about a long roll out. Announced new Confidence last May at Munich.

Hello folks,
I listened to the Confidence 20 speakers a few weeks ago at my Paris dealer. To say that they impressed me a lot is an understatement.
I just cannot remove them from my brains and I feel like I «*need*» to get a pair.

Any new Confidence owners out there? I heard a pair of the 20’s at a local dealer...nice sound, but a little light on the bottom for my tastes. Thinking the 30’s might be a better fit.

I listened to a pair of Confidence 20. My impression of the new Confidence 20 is that it has more warmth and more resolution compared to the previous generation Confidence C1.

Personally, I wouldn't draw any definitive conclusions about Dyns heard at a dealer unless they've been verifiably documented to have been run in with >300 hours of run-time.

Is anyone running these meanwhile? I’m almost sold on some SF homage tradition but consider these as alternatives... im probably not the only one with this chain of thought, or am I?
