Regarding Dynaudio Excite X16's versus Focus 160's:
Can anyone please tell me what difference I can expect in sound between these models? Assuming everything else in the system is exactly the same, including the room and how I position the speakers, what's the difference in performance between X16's and Focus 160's (or, if you prefer, Focus 140's, the old model)?
Sonically, what characteristics in particular would I notice? Can anyone say "how much" better one is than the other?
Is there much difference between the components in these models? It seems to me the drivers and cabinets are pretty similar, so what about the crossovers? What's the biggest physical difference?
I've already bought the X16's. It's just that to me, they seem reasonably similar, based on reviews and listening (not on the same day) so that's without being able to make a proper comparison. The X16's are about half the price of F160's here in Australia. I chose them because they seem about equivalent, and I wanted 160's but couldn't afford them. If they perform anywhere near comparably to the 160's then for the price I've done pretty well. What do you guys think? Have I been hasty and should I have shopped around more, or is this a reasonable choice?
I'd especially love to hear from someone who's owned both, but whatever.
Thanks in advance
