    Contour 20

    Glorious sound

    The Australian Audio Visual hub, AvHub, which comprises of some of Australia's leading hifi magazines has reviewed the compact Contour 20 loudspeakers. Below we have selected some of our favourite quotes from the review for you to enjoy.

    A Heavenly Reference

    The Norwegian Hi-Fi magazine, Lyd og Bilde, call the new Contour 20 for a "heavenly reference loudspeaker" in their recently published review. Below, you'll find translated quotes from this wonderful review.

    “Everything a Future Classic Needs.”

    “Wow!” was our collective outburst when we found out that image hifi – perhaps the most prestigious Hi-Fi magazine in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland - had cleared the front page for the Contour 20.

    Danish Dynamite

    A brand new Contour review has hit the streets in Germany, as the popular magazine, Audio, takes a closer listen to the compact stand mounter, Contour 20.
    Contour 30

    These speakers can really boogie

    Scott Campbell reviews the Contour 30 in the new issue of Audio Esoterica. The Contour 30 has made customs and entered the ‘land down under.' Here, it has managed to impress reviewer Scott Campbell and fool two surprising, but nonetheless, Hi-Fi accustomed reviewers: his pooches…

    “That’s how a piano sounds like!“

    The new Contour series has taken the German reviewer community by storm with praise such as: "Danish Dynamite", "Absolute Spitzenklasse", and "The New Contour Sets Milestone".

    But the Contour isn't slowing down. In the new edition of the German Hi-Fi magazine Fidelity it is praised as more revolution than evolution - both technologically and aesthetically.

    Absolute Spitzenklasse

    One of the most popular German Hi-Fi Magazine, Stereoplay, has reviewed the all-new mid-sized Contour 30 – and it’s safe to say they were impressed: 62/65 points and a ‘Stereoplay Highlight’ title.

    LYD Series

    LYD 5

    Engineering Integrity Makes LYD Classy and Capable

    "Both the LYD 5 and LYD 8 are classy and capable nearfield monitors invested with thoughtful electro-acoustic engineering. They look great, their performance is up there with the best in their class, and that they’re relatively affordable only increases their appeal. (…) If you asked me, and I’m sure you did, to come up with one phrase to describe my feelings about the LYD monitors it would be ‘engineering integrity’.”

    LYD 7

    Recording Magazin Reviews LYD 7

    “All the possible settings have a subtle influence on the sound of the LYD 7. Everything else would have been a shame, because this can be said in advance: The LYDs sound magnificent.”

    Consistent Frequency Response through a Wide Range of Volumes

    "I did appreciate that the low end, and the frequency response overall, were consistent through a wide range of volumes — a valuable trait when evaluating how mixes will perform in the real world"

    - Kerry Rose, TapeOp Magazine

    Extremely Natural and Organic Vocals on LYD 7

    "My first impression of the LYD 7 was a detailed midrange with wide-open highs. I put on a few reference recordings to get the ball rolling, and was immediately drawn to its overall clarity across the entire spectrum."

    - Alex Hawley, Recording Magazine

    Absolutely Fantastic for Putting a Spotlight on a Mix

    "When it comes down to putting a spotlight on a mix, I thought they were absolutely fantastic. If you're looking for new monitors, put them on your short list."

    - Guitar Interactive

    Awesome Transient Response

    "I immediately noticed the monitors’ outstanding depth and imaging, including a rock-solid phantom center. The transient response was also awesome, and not because of peaky high-frequency reproduction; the highs sounded smooth and were non-fatiguing."

    - Michael Cooper, Mix Magazine

    Audiofanzine LYD 7 Review

    "The near-field monitors of the Danish manufacturer are back with a new name and finish, although they do bear a resemblance to the old BM series. (...) Fortunately, the audio performance is still excellent, and that's what really matters!"

    Future Music: LYD 7 Makes Mixing Easy

    LYD took part in a Group Test and finished only second to a pair of speakers at twice the price. Unfortunately the review is not available in full online, but here are the key takeaways from Future Music's review:

    "The focus is on a meaty mid range that doesn’t turn harsh, making it easy to mix less forward elements, especially reverb tails, quickly and audibly."

    Among other mentions are "solid stereo image with good off-axis response" and "excellent bass".

    Amazona on LYD - All Pros No Cons

    The German online magazine gave LYD 7 a thorough test and concluded that they simply sound amazing and especially considering how great they perform, the price is very moderate.

    Audio Media on LYD 7: Commendable Vocal Clarity

    Audio Media International tested the LYD 7 personal reference monitors and found vocals to have commendable clarity regardless of the source, including Alison Krauss, Tony Lewis and ZZ Top.

    Pro Tools Expert LYD Review: Near Field Size. Main Monitor Sound.

    Pro Tools Expert took the entire LYD studio monitor in for a detailed review. As James Ivey points out, each model shines in its own way and is ideal for significant purposes.
    LYD 8

    MusicTech LYD Review: Exceptional Degree of Clarity

    MusicTech put LYD 5 and LYD 8 on the review test bench and receives a 9/10 rating, earning a genuine MusicTech 'Choice' recommendation.

    Bonedo Considers LYD a Genuine Danish Delicacy

    German online magazine, Bonedo, reviewed all 3 LYD models. In short, they conclude that LYD preserves the classic Dynaudio virtues: The design is modern, the standard of craftsmanship is high and the sound is immaculate and very transparent.

    HIFICRITIC tries out the compact Emit M10,

    Last October, we introduced the new Emit series with the two compact stand mounter, Emit M10 and Emit M20, the floorstander, Emit M30, and the Emit M15C for movie lovers.

    The Emit M10: an insanely great speaker

    In a New York City Hi-Fi Shop, Steve Guttenberg heard something he really liked: an insanely great speaker for tiny rooms.

    Steve has owned and auditioned many Dynaudio speakers, but he still wasn't quite expecting the level of sound reproduction from the Emit M10s:

    Great Danes? Bloody brilliant Danes more like.

    Home Cinema Choice have tested an Emit and Sub 600 5.1 system to find out if the new Dynaudio entry-level system can exceed its rivals in the class.

    "A wireless speaker for the most discerning audiophiles."

    Let that linger for a minute: “A wireless speaker for the most discerning audiophiles”. That’s how CNET’s writer, Steve Guttenberg, starts his brand new review of the Xeo 2.

    "The best thing: how frustration-free they are"

    Hi-Fi magazines are not the only ones who love the Xeo 2, the Australian lifestyle publisher, HEY GENTS, have auditioned the Xeo 2s, and they are absolutely in love with them:

    Rhapsody in Bluetooth

    "The new Xeo 2 has arrived and looks to be every inch the kind of do-anything, put-anywhere wireless speaker that shows what could, should and will be," Hi-Fi Choice.

    "Punch a higher floor with the Dynaudio Xeo 2"

    The online publication Digital Audio Review, or DAR for short, has road tested the Dynaudio Xeo 2 loudspeakers – a review filled to the brim with praise.

    ”I don’t believe in frettin’ and grievin’”

    The compact wireless Xeo 2s continue to audition around the world. Now, Audiostream has looked at our most convenient loudspeaker to date.

    The Australian newspaper, Sydney Morning Herald, has reviewed our Xeo 2 speakers for its Digital Life section. The verdict is in - and it's good.

    “These speakers will blow you away"

    9 out of 10. And, a 'Trusted Reviews Recommended' badge. That's the result of Trusted Reviews test of the wireless Xeo 6 floor standers.

    Xeo 6 review in The Computer Audiophile

    “Great sound quality, no cables, no separate digital to analog converter, no separate amplifier(s), and no digital source component within view is enough for me to suggest you “add to cart” given the opportunity.”

    Xeo 6 Review in Sound & Vision magazine

    Sound & Vision awards the Xeo 6 the publication's “TOP PICK” designation, and rating it’s performance and build quality as 5-stars.

    Xeo 6, AUDIO, October 2014

    "Very neutral and widerange-sounding floorstand speaker, distinguished character without any artificiality. Superior also in the bass, surprisingly power-stable despite its compact size, exact sound-staging."

    XEO 6 ..serious hi-fi sounds

    " ideal proposition for music lovers who want serious hi-fi sounds from minimal components."

    Xeo 6, Hi-Fi Choice 09/2014

    Xeo 6, stereoplay/Germany 09/2014

    "The wireless Dynaudio serves balanced, silky-smooth tonality and excellent transparency with effortless confidence, as if it's the most normal thing in the world to listen to a high-end-system without separate amplifiers or speaker cables."

    Price/Performance: Outstanding
    Xeo 4

    XEO 4 - AudioStream

    "The Xeo 4s and Xeo 6s need just two things from you—a source(s) and power.
    That's it.
    That's all you need for a complete Hi-Fi. Interested?"

    Xeo 4 & Xeo 6, STEREO, November 2014

    "At this years’ High End Show in Munich Dynaudio had the surprise effect on their side: While others proudly presented their first wireless speakers with hifi ambitions, the Danes already called in the second round. The pioneer of digital active wireless speakers is keen not only to keep the pole position, but to stay even further ahead."

    The Xeo 4 "reaches lower, sounds slightly softer yet cleaner. Also, the bass can be adjusted to the room requirements. Worth every Cent!” Result: “Outstanding"

    Xeo 4, AUDIO, October 2014

    "Distinctively expressive and vital sounding compact speaker with good, strong bass and finest timbre. Exact sound-staging. Despite sounding open it never becomes obtrusive"

    "With so much capability, the Dynaudio Evidence Platinums should be your last speaker purchase."

    “…Wow! The sound had never been so true and the 3D sound stage had never been so vivid!"

    Lincoln Cheng

    Evidence Platinum, image hifi 2013

    “…a loudspeaker so overwhelming like I've never experienced before.": Editor-in-chief and high-end-audio enthusiast Uwe Kirbach reviewed the Evidence Platinum in image hifi 2/2013”

    SoundStage! HiFi

    “…the Dynaudio Evidence Platinums sounded completely wonderful. Just as I’d hoped they eventually would, the speakers gave me a magical listening experience.”

    Sven Bilé


    „Regardless of your wallet's comfort level, I recommend strongly that you audition the Dynaudio Evidences when shopping for speakers. Their fit'n'finish must be seen, and their big, tall soundstage has to be heard to appreciate how high a flagship speaker's reach for the stars can be. Of course, if your Internet company has just gone public and you simply must own a flagship speaker, look no further than the Evidence.
