I really wanted to hear the latest DCM loudspeakers in the $1000 price range, as I have very fond memories of the original DCM Time Windows of the late 70s. I knew—or knew of—many people who owned Time Windows at that time. Quite a few of them took the Time Windows to their logical conclusion by buying two pairs and stacking them. Those were the days. For $690 a pair, the Time Windows were a bargain, and a cult classic.

DCM is now offering the TimeFrame Evolution line. The TFE 200s, which sell for $1000 a pair, are the top of the TFE line, and are three-way speakers with a stated efficiency of 88 dB. Each cabinet contains a 30mm cloth dome tweeter, a 6.5-inch midrange driver with a Kevlar cone, and two 6.5-inch woofers with glass-fiber cones. Right out of the box, the bass from these slim, great-looking loudspeakers was very impressive. I heard and felt such low bass, in both my small dedicated listening room and my much larger living room, that I played some test tones just to check my sanity. Lose the sub—you won't need it unless Dafos is your favorite CD. The bass produced by the TFE 200s is deep, tight, and very well integrated with the rest of the frequency spectrum. The cosmetics of the cabinetry and the quality of the drivers makes these loudspeakers very competitive at the price.

In addition to the stunning bass, the TFE 200s' midrange and highs were so revealing that it was easy to hear the differences between several inexpensive non-oversampling DACs I had been playing with. The DCMs clearly revealed the glorious midrange transparency of the DIY Paradise Monica 2 and the stunning bass of the Lite Audio DAC-AH.

A disc that showed off the TFE 200s' capabilities particularly well was the Peter Xifaras CD, Appassionáto. This recording has everything to offer the audiophile—lightning-fast transients, low bass, dynamics, clarity, and so on. The DCM designers have done a very good job of making the TFE 200 drivers sound as one. These speakers can be compared in this respect with designs in the $2000 to $4000 range, without embarrassment. As a bonus, the sound of the TFE 200s does not change with listening height. They sounded very clean even when I was standing, and I am six feet tall.

The issue of efficiency needs to be addressed. I happened to have five amplifiers on hand during my time with the DCMs, and even the low-power Sonic Impact amp drove them to reasonable levels. It began to clip during very strong bass passages, but this was only to be expected. The combination sounded incredible for the price. The TFE 200s also handled my 400-watt Behringer amp with ease. My room overloaded before the DCMs began to compress the signal.

If I had to give an "elevator pitch" on these speakers, I would say that they sound light and transparent, with stunning low bass for ...
