Dynaudio Core Reference Monitors
Dynaudio is launching Core – its latest high-end professional reference speakers. The series comprises a three-way monitor (Core 59) and a two-way monitor (Core 7).
Core introduces new technologies in all areas that focus entirely on reproducing the best and most accurate sound possible, delivering everything producers and engineers need to hear.
Early models were put through their paces in an active recording environment in the Dynaudio Unheard recording studio at Denmark’s Smukfest music festival in 2018. The lessons learned from that real-world field test were invaluable in creating the final products. Dynaudio Unheard will also appear at The 2019 NAMM Show, where listeners can hear the speakers in their natural habitat.
Both Core 7 and Core 59 have digital inputs (AES3) and support up to 24-bit/192kHz 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 extremely flexible positioning. Depending on the studio environment, monitors might need to be placed sideways or upside down, which might mean less-than-perfect contact with the surface area. Core solves this issue with four indentations on each side and a set of Dynaudio-developed pads to fit them.
In addition, the three-way Core 59 features a rotation flex system – the Orbit – which has been adapted from Dynaudio’s renowned AIR series. It lets users rotate the plate that holds the mid/woofer and tweeter to suit either vertical or horizontal positioning. The Orbit has been improved significantly since the original with developments including an acoustically optimised back chamber.
Core also features state-of-the-art Pascal class-D amplifiers chosen after a series of intensive listening tests. Their high-frequency smoothness, unlimited power resources and stellar dynamics made the difference.
Finally, the Core range couples extreme accuracy with astonishing consistency. When measured precisely, all Core speakers are tuned to match perfectly within a very narrow 0.2 dB tolerance.
