Bottom Line:   

This is a great floorstander and Dyn once again holds true to it's name in terms of quality and trickle down technology from the confidence, contour and focus lines. It's an amazing value at 3600.00 a pair and i got a demo discount pair so even better on my end. They do everything well with a 5.1 Cambridge Audio 551R home theater receiver that does 2 channel very well and a matching 751 DVD universal player. The bass is solid as usual with the 2ea 7 inch drivers per cabinet. the 4 inch mid is fluid and so steady at voicing and imaging!!! The tweet is the dynaudio icing on the cake as their silk dome application is so kick ass in every way. The cabinet has really been improved with substancial internal bracing and better overall construction! The cherry real wood veneer is awesome! always first rate since the day i forst saw any DYN product!!
Symbols and horns on Dave Koz albums are incredible. ACDC is great on record or of my Mac Mini blue tooth streamed. Dave Mathews Band is very dynamic music and it handles that with no sweat. Female artists like Sarah Mclaughlin and Bareilles are so supple and vivid. On even better gear like a dedicated integrated like my Rogue audio Sphinx it's on a whole other level of performance to say the least. They work well with tubes like conrad johnson and audio research amp tube or solid state makes these boys sound off!!!! What more can i say as I'm a fan until the day I die and everything is made in house in Denmark so quality control is at it's finest... Can't wait to visit the factory some day!

Bottom Line:   
The Dynaudio Excite x36 is a must hear for anyone looking for a loudspeaker in the $5,000.00 range. This loudspeaker does several things really, really well. For example, the x36 does the "disappearing act" incredibly well. Set up properly, the Dynaudio casts a spookily-realistic, goosebump-inducing soundstage. These speakers image as well as any loudspeaker I've heard under $10,000.00, and I've heard a lot. The imaging is truly pinpoint; each instrument delightfully delineated within the soundstage. And the Excite X36 are LIGHTNING fast. As in planar fast. I auditioned these speakers in my smallish listening room for a week before pulling the trigger. Initially I was underwhelmed. Typical Dynaudio sound, but a bit light on bass. I experimented with toe-in, rake and distance from back-and-side walls in an effort to give them the benefit of the doubt, and I paid off. In spades! This speaker is VERY sensitive to positioning. You must invest time in getting the toe-in, distance and rake just right. I never really put much stock in the "move 1/4 inch at a time" practice, but with this speaker it REALLY makes a difference. Likewise with amplification. My BAT VK-500 solid state amp produces 250 wpc into 8 ohms, 500 into 4 ohms, and more importantly, a stout 75 amps. These speakers really respond to the juice, and they are so revealing that lower-quality upstream components will be quickly exposed. The one thing that everyone who has heard this speaker agrees upon is that the Excite x36 is a master at detail retrieval. Wow. As you've heard many people say many times about audio components, I really did have to plumb my albums and CDs to look for new detail and nuance that I hadn't heard before. It's a blast. Lastly, the other big impression this speaker makes is the DEPTH of the soundstage. I have heard speakers in hi-end shops pull this off before, but never in my listening room have I been able to conjure the DEEP presentation the x36 create. I sat there chuckling, shaking my head, thinking, "It's like my listening room is 50 yards deep!" Needless to say, at week's end I bought them. Highly, highly recommended.
