The LYD 5 is the redefinition of nearfield, compact monitors. 

The LYD 5 is our premium small-format near-field monitor. With its low volume precision, LYD is the perfect fit for smaller setups and home studios. LYD uses lightweight aluminium wire and voice coils in its handmade drive units, along with a state-of-the-art Class-D amplifier with a 96 kHz / 24bit signal path and DSP used just right to provide outstanding performance.

The aluminium voice coil and wire are low mass so its transient response is quick and accurate. To ensure the ideal mix between stiffness, weight, and dampening for unrivalled accuracy, we mould the diaphragm and dust cap in one piece with our proprietary Magnesium Silicate Polymer.

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’.”

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.

We believe monitors should sound great at all volume levels - low and high
