Click here to read the stunning review of the Dynaudio X14 speakers in Stereophile Magazine October 2014
The X14 is the most compact Excite model yet delivers true high-end sound quality to any system by virtue of its long-excursion mid/woofer, refined soft dome tweeter and first-class crossover components. The exquisite sonic balance, underscored by an unbelievably deep, fast and perfectly controlled bass response is a rarity in this price class.
The beautifully-crafted cabinet is equally refined: exquisite natural wood or satin lacquer finishes enoble the rigid, solid enclosure while the minimal distance between tweeter and mid/woofer serves to improve timing and phase. The Dynaudio Stand 3X speaker stands, SF1 speaker feet, and assorted wall mount brackets are perfect accessories available for optimizing placement of the X14.
The Excite X14 is available in a choice of real-wood veneer finishes: Walnut and Rosewood. Furthermore, the speaker is available in Satin Black Lacquer and Satin White Lacquer finishes.
One of the speaker was received with tiny damage on corner, hard to tell whose responsibility since I'm staying oversea. I didn't expect it can be returned, just looked for some assistance or may be repairing, when I reported this to Analogue Seduction by email, I got a positive feedback in 45 mins, advising me that a new piece of replacement has been arranged and will deliver to me, free of charge! Go back to the item, I'm a head-fi player, I owned a pair of Dynaudio active monitors (BM compact MK iii) as a less expensive alternative, they were nice, but sound too peaceful compare to my headphones (all flagship). Considered Excite x14 might be an upgrade with similar size, this time I want to try passive speakers, while I have additional power amp to drive them.The sound was GREAT! When I said "BM MK iii" was "nice", "Excite X14" is "GREAT"! Even though my set up is rather near field, I realise a different momentum, music fulfilled my whole room, telling me another level of audiophile!
