Dynaudio reminds me of PS Audio, been in business for a long time, lots of in house R&D and manufacturing. A real manufacturer, not just a assembler of someone else’s parts. But Dynaudio serves home and professional markets. After 50 odd years around this stuff have finally started to value the company behind the gear.
Have been an advocate for active speakers over 15 years, for their inherent design and performance advantages. Had Dynaudio BM5 Mk3’s for a couple of years. They are a step up in bass drivers from the Excite 14’s. Pricing was roughly the same, trading low voltage crossover, built-in amps, and better woofers for high voltage crossover and nice veneer. Then you could sell the power amp.
You can always tilt the monitors downward (aim to please). Or call up timber nation and order custom, sand fillable, solid maple stands. That’s what I did recently for my JBL 708P’s. $350/pair and they hold 50# of sand each, making for 100# per side in total.
