That’s an audio dealer owner I convinced to bring CH to my country (U.A.E). The best speakers he sells are Dynaudios Confidence line and I don’t think they are resolving to what I am feeding them. So I asked him to speak to Peter to ship Magico and he agreed. M2 was my final choice last month however after speaking with Peter he explained that M2 will go through an upgrade by 2022-2023.

Which is why I went back to sketching board and search for other speakers that are not in their end of life cycle. The same story with Wilson Alexia 2 :)
Emerald....what did you end up buying?

Hi Emerald
I am a long term owner of YG Acoustics speakers and I have heard most or all of the brands in your list, but predominantly at shows like Munich but some in other people.s systems.
None have impressed me as much as the YGs. The recently unveiled YG Hailey 3 Reference attracted substantial praise at Munich last year but unfortunately I had to give the show a miss. I have only seen one full review to date which was a rave review I think but not sure from Tone Audio, but you should be able to find it on Google. At the top end of your budget but Hailey 2.2s available used/ex demo. Again, very highly reviewed.
The Tidal Audio Piano and Contriva models are within your price range and new models came out very recently. They are the only other speakers I have heard which were close to the YGs .
That's my considered two cents which I hope is helpful and good luck with your search.

MARTEN MINGUS QUINTET​


The Marten Parker Quintet Diamond Edition is no slouch either. Funny as revisiting this thread after 3 years and forgetting about it that we now represent Marten as well.
