Dynaudio Confidence C1 MKI treble
The BHK is hooded up top ime. I would try a better amp and bet they come alive.   
Upgrade from DeVore Gibbon X
I upgraded from the Gibbon X to Fyne Audio F1-12. The F1-10 is more size friendly if that’s a concern.    I would definitely consider the new O Bronze as well.     
Fyne, speaker cables
WyWires have worked well on my F1-12s  
Picking Speakers 20k-30k
With Rockports, be prepared to have a 400 watt amp for good effect.   
Balanced Audio Technology (Bat) Vk33se
BAT could be the most underrated brand out there. They don’t use fancy chassis, instead putting $ into what matters.  
What can beat Wilson XVX for less money?
I think AG Trios with bass horns can compete for half the price in a large room.    In box land, Stenheim Ultime is supposedly competitive, hoping to hear at Axpona.   
Wilson Audio Sophia rev 3
Bat + Sophia was my exact combo for several years. Perfect synergy!  
What's the best EL84 amp?
Shindo Montille is a great one  
Comments re: MSB Director upgrade cost, additional hardware and cables
Don’t know about the new director, but the Ref Dac is a huge upgrade. I’m not buying another box for it.   
Best amp for Salon 2
Pretty sure Jeff Rowland uses Salons in their main system.  
Innuos Pulsar - Some Interesting Info for Innuos Owners
Too bad the Pulsar has no server anymore. Unsure on upgrading my Zenith mk2  
Devore O/96 vs Stenheim Alumine 2
Devore loves space. Mine had two ports and didn’t come with plugs. I’ve auditioned the Stenheim 5 and 2 for a friend - the 2 is bass shy to me. I’d try and step up to the 3 in the line.   
Dan D'Agostino S350 vs Luxman M-10X
My bad - thought you were asking about new Momentum Stereo. I wouldn’t go progression at all though. Doesn’t have the magic.   
Dan D'Agostino S350 vs Luxman M-10X
I mean, one is $45k and the other less than half that. These aren’t really comps.  
You ended up with Ayre, what are your speakers?
Vandy and Sonus Faber are the classic pairings. Also Avalon.
