Are you aware about Dynaudio audio system? Designed and made in Denmark, the most recent audio system from the corporate are understated by high-end requirements. The Particular Forty can slot in with any decor, with a sound that is equally low-key, however that is why they’re going to put on nicely over time. Dynaudio makes professional and shopper audio system, and I’ve actually loved my share of them in house theater and high-end stereo audio techniques over time. Talking of years, Dynaudio is celebrating its 40th anniversary with its Particular Forty audio system, so I spent some high quality time with a pair on the In Residing Stereo retailer in NYC.
I like that its trim measurement is so condominium pleasant at 7.eight x 14.2 x 12.1 inches (198 x 360 x 307mm), and the excessive gloss stained gray or crimson birchwood finishes have a cool fashionable look. The Particular Forty are costly little audio system, however sound and construct high quality are commensurate with the worth and celebration of the corporate’s 40th anniversary.
Dynaudio is understood for its drivers, so this new speaker sports activities a precision-coated 1-inch (28mm) soft-dome tweeter that’s distinctive to the Particular Forty. The 6.7 inch (170mm) mid-woofer design is predicated on Dynaudio’s flagship Confidence and Proof designs, and the Particular Forty woofer makes use of a complicated hybrid magnet system to decrease distortion and create greater energy output. The tweeter and woofer each use aluminum voice-coils which are lighter than conventional copper coils, which permits Dynaudio to make bigger voice-coils for a given weight, and that is a very good factor as a result of bigger coils exert higher management over the dome or cone’s motion, which additional lowers distortion. The corporate depends on in depth measurements and listening checks within the improvement of latest designs.
For this evaluate the Particular Forty was partnered with a Naim Nait 5si built-in amp, a Naim CD5 XS CD participant and a Rega PL3 turntable. I additionally checked out the audio system sound with the spectacularly good Line Magnetic 518 tube built-in amp.
How particular is it?
The Particular Forty is in keeping with the pattern of shrinking high-end audio system measurement, and this speaker could be one of the best one but for its measurement. Tonally, the Particular Forty is clean and straightforward, however as I continued to pay attention it was the audio system’ readability and determination that made the largest impressions.
Guitarist Ry Cooder’s “Mambo Sinuendo” unleashed exhausting hitting Cuban grooves that wished to be performed good and loud. The Particular Forty obliged and reveled within the tunes. The little audio system can play surprisingly loud in small- to midsized rooms. The sound had a deliciously natural really feel to it.
With digital music from Philip Glass’s “Dance Items” deep synthesizer bass traces got here quick and livid, and the Particular Forty cleanly delineated them. Similar for complicated keyboard textures, and the music’s power and pulse made me need to dance. The soundstage was deep, however not all that huge.
My favourite younger nation rock singer Angaleena Presley shows critical angle on her “Wrangled” album. She’s a fierce presence, and her band kicks butt, and the little Particular Forty did not maintain something again.
All of that was with the Naim solid-state electronics, however once we converted to the Line Magnetic tube amp the Particular Fortys sound fleshed out and warmed up, with out dropping its innate precision.
The Dynaudio Particular Forty audio system retail for $2,999 and £2,500 per pair. The value in Australia hasn’t but been set, however the US value converts to AU$three,802. Dynaudio additionally presents a lot cheaper and costlier fashions.
