Sure, keep me apprised. Personally, I think the power amp is more important than the preamp, especially when one already has a world-class preamp.

Hey Demans, Sorry for the long delay, the Esoteric combo is pretty damn good, but I would place the improvement on the DAC. In the chain of components, I believe without question the DAC is the most important front end component in the chain. There are alot of great DACs out there, and it is easy to hear differences in them. If digital is your preference, then start with a DAC that is "your" sound. With the Big Dyns, the Esoteric's detail is a great match. The Temptations are a very flexible speaker, I can move them around, use different components, play them soft, or loud... They always deliver! There are really only a few speakres that are as well rounded as the Dynaudio's. They are a great company!
Also, with the D-02, the Temptations sound great even without the preamp, but I still prefer long listening with a pre.

I move my 1.8 Contour´s with an integrated tube amp, Unison Research P70. I would like a jump to a Mc C2300 + Mc 275 combo.

In the dinning room I have a pair of Focus 110 with Marantz 665E K.I. Signature.

I'm now powering my Contour 1.8's with a Pass Labs X150.5 and they've never sounded better.

My Dynaudio Confidence C2's are powered by Classe 600w monoblocks with a Simaudio Moon Evolution 740P line stage. Sources are Mac mini running Pure Music with AIFF or HD files through FireWire to a WeissDac 202 or Rega RP6 table, Dynavector 20x2 cartridge and Moon 310LP / 320S phono amp. I've had the system a year, and it sounds fabulous. Very satisfied...

I've changed the amps in both my 2 channel and HT systems over the last year. Replaced the Pass Labs Int 150 with a Bryston 4B SST2 last year. The C1s never sounded as good. Liked the Bryston so much that I got the matching 3 channel version - the 6B SST2) to power the Contour 5.4s and SCX in my HT system (with a 2B SST to power the surrounds). The Brystons match up wonderfully with the Dyns.

I'm now driving my little Focus 140's with a Bryston 3B SST2, controlled by a McIntosh D100 digital pre, fed by my DIY music server and Synology 412+.

I'm getting happier.
