Dynaudio is rather analytical, that's their house sound, quite picky on amping too. Best I've heard is through Plinius amp; even though the dealer said if you're poor, Rotel can suffice while saving up for Plinius. That was quite a long time ago, I actually have no idea how the new Xcite range sound. In general, I really love Scandinavian stuff; using a Danish amp atm too.
Yep, EU price sucks. 700 pounds (~$1k) for the He-500, and they wonder why I shoot straight to the He-6
