Dynaudio Confidence C2 Floorstanding Speakers

5/5 (4 Reviews) MSRP : $16500.00


Product Description

With its slim, graceful profile, and its 62 inch height, the Confidence C2 makes a bold statement as the entry into this new product line. The smallest model in the Confidence range particularly captivates through its extremely elegant proportions. In typical Danish fashion, Dynaudio pays meticulous attention to high quality craftsmanship. Every Confidence model is built in Denmark, completely in-house, through a combination of advanced computer-aided production engineering and exhaustive hand craftsmanship. The cabinets are built by skilled craftsmen who finely sand and hand polish each loudspeaker in a lavish process. The result is a high quality cabinet that will endure for decades while always maintaining the magnificent beauty of its appearance.

The baffle rests a bit in front of the cabinet enclosure, forming a gently curved tail on its moulded proportions. The audible benefit is that a wonderfully precise imaging is achieved, as is a soundstage with authentic dimensions, while vocals are rendered with an unbelievably natural precision. These performance attributes are also related to the Confidence models' balanced impedance technology, which results in the speaker not having to demand unreasonably high current from the connected amplifier. Low frequencies are now effortlessly reproduced without consequence, and it is possible to effectively utilize even inefficient power amplifiers due to the ease of drive achieved through the balanced impedance.

Bottom Line:   
The C2's to me do everything right, to my ears. You can find them used for a much better deal. The workmanship is some of the best I have seen in the industry and there drivers are very detailed and not bright. This speaker sounds good with just about every type of music you can imagine, the C2 sounds good in a small room and even better in a bigger one, so no limitations on size of the room except for very low ceilings since these stand tall. Matching a good Int. Amp and or Amp is makes these speakers, sing even better. Musical Fidelity seems to mate very well with them.

Other speakers to listen to: C1, C4 and Joseph Audio comes to mind.

I originally wanted to purchase C4's but I feel the C2's sounded better. Enough bass, great midrange and treble.

Bottom Line:   
I had about 9000 Euro to spend on a good speaker. Finally I had to choose between the Dynaudio confidence C2 and the B&W Nautilus 802.
Both are very good speakers but differ a lot. The B&W has deeper bass and clearer bass. The Dynaudio outshined the B&W in the midrange and higher frequencies.
(personally I think the B&W midrange is a little bit aggressive causing fatique, but then again a life violin for example is not always sounding 'sweet'. Anyway listening to the C2 made it clear that I would
be able to listen longer at home and that is what I want to do. The high and midrange frequencies are excellent and the soundstage is very realistic. Bass is less than the 802 but this is no problem. The C2 has firm and controlled bass.
You should stick to the 802 however if you want to listen to church organs. The C2 has enough bass for all other music and just enough.
But the 802 is a marvellous speaker so why did I choose for the C2? Budget, yes! Well they are nearly the same price but you can only make the B&W sound good with very strong amps, which are mostly costly. The C2 can be driven with less power, however they sound best with a big amp, aswell,
but they are less sensitive to the amps power than B&W. Do buy the B&W 802 is you could find two second hand SUMO 9 plus amplifiers to bi-amp the 802. It will sound great. If not you will have to pay a lot of money to drive the B&W. Or buy the C2 and I am sure you will be pleased, like I am with excellent sound,
where you can spend money on a less expensive amp. I know use a LUXMAN 505s integrated wich is not the best amplifier for the speaker. I' ve listend to a Plinius Class A amp that made the C2 sound great. Shpinx Project 12 mono blocks as well. But they work well with a relatively cheap pre/power amp of Primare (30 series).

Bottom Line:   
It's strange to be the first to review this speaker. I own this speaker for nearly an year and reviews has been published in nearly all important audio-magazines in Europe and in the US. Why took it such a long time before we can review this C2 on this website??

The Dynaudio C2 is a beautiful speaker. The looks are nice and they are easy to integrate in the design of your room. The acoustics are also simple to handle. At home I have a living room (40m2); not a studio, but the soundstage is nonetheless really impressive. It is high (from floor to ceiling), wide and deep. It is important that you use a very good CD-player and amplification to reveal this quality (in my case Audio Research CD 3 and Marsh 400 + 2000T).
The soundcharacter is neutral, perhaps a little dark. The treble is silky; the mids detailed but not edgy; the low is easy and fast. You can play every kind of music (classic, jazz, rock, folk) at any volume and you will enyou the music and the emotions. Even after hours of listening there is even no trace of fatigue and you will only experience the real ambiance of the music floating in your room.

Only at the ultra-lowend (<45Hz)it lacks some punch (esp. rockmusic, pop, reggea or surround movies). But for this "booming" music/moviesound you can switch on a good subwoofer (I use REL Q200), this is cheaper than to buy the C4 and pay 4000 Euro for the 20 lowest Hertz.

To discribe this speakers in two words: they are EASY and PLEASURE.
