Dynaudio has added two new models to the Core reference series, first introduced at the 2019 NAMM show.
Core 47 is a compact three-way monitor with a seven inch woofer, a dedicated four inch midrange driver and the new 28mm Esotar Pro tweeter. Core Sub is a powered subwoofer with four nine inch long-throw woofers and two x 500W of power.
“Core 47 fills the gap between the Core 7 and Core 59 models,” said Dynaudio Pro product manager Rune Jacobsen.
“Its footprint is comparable to Core 7, but it’s a three-way design with a dedicated midrange driver for the absolute highest degree of detail when reproducing sound in this critical frequency area – where, for instance, vocals are located. Core 7 features the same DSP options as the rest of the Core monitors and delivers SPL that will meet the needs of any producer or sound engineer.
“Core Sub is designed to be a low-frequency partner to any Core-based set-up,” Jacobsen continued. “With four long-throw woofers and 1000W of power it delivers powerful and reliable low-frequency reproduction regardless of whether it’s part of a master stack, or a surround sound or immersive speaker setup with height and overhead channels.”
All Dynaudio monitors are developed, designed, tested and made in Skanderborg, Denmark, as well as key components like drivers and tweeters. The Core series is the first Dynaudio Pro range to have been fully developed in the company’s advanced new R&D centre, Dynaudio Labs. Jupiter, its 13 x 13 x 13m measuring room is especially beneficial when developing active speakers. Measuring both on- and off-axis performance can now be done in minutes rather than days – letting engineers get on with the work of prototyping and listening rather than waiting for numbers to crunch.
Prototypes of Core 47’s sister speakers, Core 7 and Core 59, were tested out in an active recording environment in the Dynaudio Unheard studio at Denmark’s Smukfest music festival in 2018, as well as during NAMM 2019. These real-world tests were also significant in creating the final products.
Core 47 and Core Sub 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.
The series is also designed for flexibility. Core has four indentations on each side and a set of special pads to fit them. Dynaudio has also designed a bracket for Core 47 for wall or ceiling installation. With the appropriate adapter, it can also double as a desk-stand.
In addition, Core 47 and Core Sub feature Pascal class-D amplifiers chosen after a series of intensive listening tests. When measured precisely, all Core speakers are tuned to match perfectly within a very narrow 0.2 dB tolerance.
