im considering buying a set of the Lanzar OPTI6C comps. has anyone ever tried them? ive been aching to get a set for some time now and need something to hold me over for a while. i know the opti series is really good but ive never seen anyone use their component lines.

Only thing is the crossover design and case seem very suspect but the mids look very solid and are ****

They look good, and well built. Let me know how they sound. I have an active x-over by Lanzar. Works fine for me.

Look like Dyn to me.. That set was probably OEM'd by Dynaudio for Lanzar.

Lanzar still blows

The Lanzar Opti Drive amps subs and speakers are still pretty decent from what I can tell, and this particular lineup never was too bad at all.

why? I was serious for once.

They I wouldn't be surprised about the Soundstream Ref comps being OEM'd from Dynaudio either: http://soundstream.com/AudioProducts/Components/reference.htm

This is real easy. If they say made in Denmark, they were OEM'd by Dynaudio. If they say made in Isreal, they were OEM'd by Morel. If they say made in France, they might be Dynavox. I'll bet they say made in China or other.

Lanzar will never be what it used to be. Back in the 90's my pops had a shop when Lanzar was ******, (purple opti's, USA hand built subs eq's whatever)
The older line was not a Zed design. The newer stuff like the opti amps and subs are OK at best, as for the speakers??? I ran thru many sets of their cadmium which was the high end line for a while and it was all junk. Crossovers as big as a laptop, speakers would just die, cones would seperate etc. Kinda sad, it's like running into your favorite sports hero when u were a kid and now hes homeless.....bummer

i believe Zed built/designed the Optidrive amps around '99-00

I think some of these cheap/non-big name brand are overlooked a little too much. You wouldn't expect anything godly, but decent sounding, affordable products do exist. This isn't the first time I've seen someone like the Optidrive component set either.

looks mean nothing, id like to see tsp's on both mids to even compare them

This is real easy. If they say made in Denmark, they were OEM'd by Dynaudio. If they say made in Isreal, they were OEM'd by Morel. If they say made in France, they might be Dynavox. I'll bet they say made in China or other.

Sorry guys, there's no way those were manufactured by Dynaudio. Why would a company that has it's amplifiers built by Asian sweatshops (excluding the Zed makes and such) all of the sudden turn to an expensive company like Dynaudio for there drivers? I mean, who makes the counterfeit Dynaudio drivers that are masquerading as the genuine article?

Now, I might be inclined to think that Jantzen drivers are built by Dynaudio simply because they're based in Denmark but even then... who knows.
