Eucalyptus is such an elegant color too. Very easy on the eyes, they don’t scream out “look at me” like some other speakers. They just elegantly blend in with the decor. At some point you should consider the TonTrager stands. Magic. That should be the icing on the cake and a cherry on top.

Stephen, congrats! I have never heard Harbeths but they seem to receive almost universal praise.

Stephen,

Congratulations! A friend has the 40.1s and I heard the 40.2s in Munich and I believe those were driven with Magnum Dynalab electronics.

Both models are amazing speakers, very happy to hear your news on this new purchase!

Many thanks, gents, for all the kind regards....

Now, I just have to source stands and "hold out" 'til Monday.

Ah well, I have Wimbledon to distract me. Vamos Rafa!

Any reason you decided to part with Dynaudio?
