Default New Confidence line

The new Confidence line has my attention. I really like the aesthetics and form factor. The new line is not only a replacement for the existing Confidence line but it will also replace the current Evidence line up. A Dynaudio rep at Munich has publicly stated that the Confidence 60 is EASILY the best speaker Dynaudio has ever created. That’s a mouthful!

I agree. Older confidence line looks much better than current new ones.

I agree the previous design is good looking too but it’s also a bit weird at same time. I like how new design still has the unique front baffle but doesn’t stick out so far as the old design with respect to the cabinet. Also, the black side “wings” from the over-sized baffle onto the otherwise gorgeous finishes was always a black eye on an otherwise beautiful design. So glad they dropped that look. The rounded cabinet contour is also a welcome change.

The new design is also reduced height compared with the C4, another good thing IMO.

I agree on older confidence height issue. Sometimes i felt C4 is too tall. I loved both older and current contour design.

So will Bob Katz get rid of his M5P and buy the Confidence 60?

Looks like Dynaudio has learned from Revel. Cabinet looks similar to Salon2. Wave guide for single tweeter, check.

Need to see measurement data.

They look good. Looking forward to auditioning the Confidence 20, the long awaited Evidence level bookshelf.
