    Five-stars and test winner: The Dynaudio Emit M10

    To be the best, you have to challenge the best. That’s the Emit M10 did in What Hi-Fi?’s £500 loudspeakers group test and the results are in:

    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:
    M30

    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.

    Xeo 2

    "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.

    Sydney Morning Herald reviews Xeo2

    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.

    Xeo 2 Review in Sound + Image

    When introduced in November 2015, the Xeo 2 became our smallest, active loudspeaker.
    Xeo 6

    “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

    "...an 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 & 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, WHAT HI-FI?, November 2014

    "The Xeo 4s serve up great-quality, convenient, versatile wireless sound."

    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"

    Dynaudio Focus 600 XD reviewed by The Abso!ute Sound

    ​The Focus 600 XD is” so good even audiophiles who may have dismissed active digital speakers out of hand will discover the manifold merits this technology offers”. That’s how The Abso!ute Sound’s review of our largest active, digital loudspeaker, the Focus 600 XD ends.

    Focus 600 XD Review in fairaudio.de

    "Is this a really good Hifi system playing – or are there musicians playing in my room?“

    Focus 600 XD Review in The Absolute Sound

    "The 600 XD is so good that even audiophiles who may have dismissed active digital speakers out of hand will discover the manifold merits this technology offers."

    Focus 600 XD Review

    “Dynaudio’s active sensation!”
    "In fact, rarely has a loudspeaker or audio system highlighted the differences between audio formats so clearly....

    ”The Future of Reproduced Sound in the Home”

    In Greg Borrowman’s mind, the Focus 600 XDs are an own goal. Why? Because they are right up t​here with some of the best-sounding speakers we have ever made in his mind. This brilliant review no only praises the Focus 600 XD, but it also lead to the coronation as Active Loudspeaker of the Year 2016 by Sound + Image.

    Verdict: “Outstanding”

    “A very transparent yet still joyful speaker with deep, rich, precise bass and truly perfect timing.”

    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

    Stereophile

    „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.
