"Sure, we could make our spakers cheaper. But we don't want to."
"We have more quality controls than many speakers from other companies have parts. This may mean that we build relatively few speakers and that their price is relatively high. We still think they're more than worth the money." Allan Jensen, Dynaudio vice-president of finance for six years.
The incredible transparency and breathtaking spaciousness of the Contour 2.8's sound are the result of thorough development, with careful consideration of the most minute details.
As with all models of our new Contour series, the 2.8 features a linearised impedance, which makes the amplifier work easier, and a corrected phase response, to eliminate diffuseness.
During manufacture, our fearsome testers will check its true quality and reproduction no less than 86 times.
A newly developed 8" bass driver, with a 3" voice coil, guarantees excellent low frequency dynamics, with a harmonious crossover to the tweeter.
The tweeter is a variant of the legendary Esotar T-330 D (90% of all manufacturers have to buy in their tweeters; we develop and build our own).
It's at the very limit of technological feasibility, and its sound is incredibly clean and sparkling. Of course, all this would mean nothing without the Dynaudio crossover with its carefully selected components, such as special coils and polyproylene capacitors, and the enclosure, carefully hand-built, with reinforcement and resonance damping of all crucial parts.
One of the best floor-mounted loudspeakers available today, the Contour 2.8 will offer maximum musical pleasure to the ardent music lover, for years and years to come.
It will let you appreciate the finest qualities of the best amplifiers, record players and digital sources. As with all Contour models, the 2.8 is available in beautiful wood veneer, or, black or white lacquer. All finishes are of traditional Danish Dynaudio quality.
