The World’s Highest-End Speaker-Test Center
In December 2015, Dynaudio announced the establishment of a brand-new R&D center in Skanderborg, Denmark. Construction started in January of the following year. After nearly a year, it officially opened on December 30, 2016.
This R&D center has the most advanced ultra-quiet room in Europe. The total volume of the space is 13×13×13 meters. There are two mechanical arms, one for moving the speaker and the other for moving 31 microphones. The bracket can measure the speaker’s characteristics that are almost not affected by the reflection of the wall in the center of this large space.
Besides, the R&D center has two listening rooms, specially designed as home spaces to simulate the state of the speakers in the real space.
Dynaudio, which is distributed in more than 60 countries around the world, has more than 20% of its annual income for research and development.
Dynaudio is not only one of the few audio circle players involved in professional audio, car audio, and home audio, but also one of the few manufacturers in the audio circle that produces from the most top-level speakers to the most affordable speakers. All because of Dynaudio’s muscular R&D strength.
The earliest Dynaudio started from driver production and later became a speaker manufacturer. It still insists on production in Denmark. The muscular R & D strength is the best guarantee for quality and the best guarantee for “super value.”
Affordable Emit Series
The Emit series launched in 2015 is the most affordable series under Dynaudio. The main goal is a multi-channel system, including Emit M30 floor speakers, Emit M15C center channel speakers, and Emit M20, and M10 two pairs of bookshelf speakers. Among them, Dynaudio Emit M10 is the smallest pair.
Emit symbolizes Dynaudio’s high expectations for this series. This series’s most prominent feature is the use of the same driver technology as the high-end series, including silk soft-dome diaphragm, MSP diaphragm for the mid-bass driver. But the box still maintains the traditional square shape.
I found that although the sensitivity of the M10 is only 86dB, it will not make people feel unable to push. As long as the volume is turned up to achieve the proper sound pressure, it will not feel dull. It can be seen that the original manufacturer has made excellent optimization on the single magnetic system and crossover.
Dynaudio’s single feature is extremely low distortion. This feature can still be felt on the M10. In addition to the bright and transparent music, the characterization of the instrument texture is also very delicate.
Listening to the third song in “Carbonite’s Twelve Seasons,” you can hear the dense texture of the entire double bass group on the right. After the middle section, the viola’s plucking is more transparent and realistic, full of charming beauty.
When listening to the human voice, you can hear the singer’s singing has an excellent cohesion. The shape of the instrument is also apparent. The low frequency is full of lightness, not ear-catching, and it sounds very comfortable.
To my surprise, when playing the jazz-like “Mingus Ah Um” by Charles Mingus, the pair of small speakers could express the charming and relaxed atmosphere in the music. The bass is full of elasticity. Not too tight. If you want to enjoy music easily, this is enough for M10!
Although the M10 is the smallest pair of speakers in Dynaudio’s most affordable series, from it, I heard that Dynaudio’s love for music and passion for sound has not changed. Dynaudio is Dynaudio!
