Golf VII GTI Sound System, Stereoplay, November 2014

The sound balance and clarity from the in-house made drive units leave no room for criticism – especially considering what others are offering for 700,- Euro. Imaging and staging are very good in this class. Natural sound colours, very relaxed yet differentiated, great staging, outstanding price/performance relation. Golf VII GTI, Stereoplay, November 2014, Germany

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"

Excite series, Hometheaterhifi.com, November 2014

“The original Excites were great speakers but the revised models are audibly superior in terms of neutrality, resolution of detail, imaging, soundstaging, and dynamics. The Excite X38s, X14s, and X24 made for an absolutely fantastic system.”

Focus 360 "Reviewer's Choice" award in SoundStage!

The Focus 360 was reviewed by Jeff Fritz for SoundStage! (June 2010), earning a "Reviewer's Choice" award in the process. Citing the speaker's "excellent fidelity", Fritz offered the following on the sound characteristics of the 360: "The most striking aspect of the Focus 360's sound was its neutral midrange. I found it so lacking in coloration that it highlighted, in comparison, the relatively non-neutral sounds of most speakers."

Confidence C1, Stereophile 11/07

„The Confidence C1 delivers world-class performance in a real-world package. If you value openness and tonal clarity, the C1 is a contender.

Stereophile 05/2000

„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. Dynaudio’s Evidence: The world’s best speaker?” Larry Greenhill
