How do you like GIK stuff so far? My local dealer advised against them as fabric quality is poor in his opinion.

Honestly, I got upgraded fabric on my first order and 3 art panels. Everything was good. My current order is mostly upgraded fabric as well, with standard fabric on the 2 that will cover the windows and be hidden behind the shade. I could comment better when those arrive. They kind of hint standard fabric isn't the greatest, but it offers different price points. I would not get the standard fabric on anything visible.

Thanks, I agree. I’m super pleased with them and I own much more expensive speakers as well as auditioning a ton of other bookshelves. I could say they’re great for the price but they’re just great in general.

In my opinion Dynaudio speakers offer some of the highest performance vs. cost ratio in high end audio. Few can bring near full range sound from this size speaker or price point.

Well stated, I 100% agree with everything you just said! I also liked the 805d3 a lot, but the fullness and scale of these won me over, and they were cheaper. They also look incredible.
