Dynaudio has gotten down to the Core of the audio industry with new series of studio reference monitors, to be released at the NAMM show. The Core series comprises of a three-way monitor (Core 59) and a two-way monitor (Core 7).
Core introduces innovative audio technologies as Dynaudio pro product manager, Rune Jacobsen, illustrated: “The range uses our most advanced drivers – including all-new tweeters that feature the ingenious new resonance-defeated Hexis inner dome – plus innovative new DSP technology for even more features and surprising ease of use. In short, extreme consistency between speakers and intelligent, flexible cabinet design – plus the best digital amplifiers we’ve ever heard – bring the pinnacle of honesty, consistency and reliability to your studio.”
Early models were tested out in an active recording studio environment in the Dynaudio Unheard recording studio at Denmark’s Smukfest in 2018, paving the way to the final product. Dynaudio Unheard will also be appearing at the NAMM show today, where listeners can hear the speakers perform live.
Both Core 7 and Core 59 have digital inputs (AES3) and support up to 24-bit/192 kHz signals, and the internal DSP (digital signal processor) operates at the same high level when using the analogue inputs. They both have Pascal class-D amplifiers developed after a series of listening tests, and are tuned to perfectly match within a very narrow 0.2 dB tolerance.
The Core design also enables flexible positioning with four indentations on each side and a set of Dynaudio pads to fit them.
The three-way Core 59 features a rotation flex system, the Orbit, adapted from Dynaudio’s AIR series, allowing users to rotate the plate that holds the mid/woofer and tweeter to suit either vertical or horizontal positioning.
This series is the first Dynaudio Pro range to have been fully developed in the company’s advanced new R&D centre, Dynaudio Labs. Core will be available in the second quarter of the year, Core 7 at $2000 and Core 59 at $3000.
