Great Honor to be a TEC Award Finalist
The TEC Awards have been handed out for more than three decades. And to the MI and pro audio manufacturers, this award is the equivalent to The Oscar for the actor or The Grammy for the musician. Needless to say it's a great honor to be nominated for this prestigious award.
Further, keeping in mind that the nomination has been given by a panel of carefully selected audio professionals makes it even more exciting for us. Likewise, the final votes to find the winners are thrown by members of various professional organizations and audio industry websites. We will definitely be there at the TEC Award ceremony in connection with the NAMM Show in January 2017. Fingers crossed.
Two TECs - One Meaningful Purpose
So what is the story behind these prestigious Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards? Well, first of all they go back more than three decades and has always had a strong focus on technical achievements and innovation.
That may sound a little dull at first, but there is more to it than that. 'Creativity' puts the 'C' in the TEC Awards and connect the products with the actual users. The finest producers in the world, the best mastering engineers, etc. Basically, all the things (products) and the people (producers) that make up the foundation that artists can shine upon - and maybe receive a Grammy of their own.
What it all boils down to is that music is the keyword here, connecting the two overall categories of the TEC Awards.
And that is exactly why it means so much to us to be nominated for this award. Because at the end of the day, we simply love music and want our monitors to help musicians and producers everywhere create the best-sounding music they possibly can. That is the most important thing to us.

Studio Master Daniel Miller on Dynaudio Speakers
Daniel Miller is a legendary producer and the founder of the independent record label Mute Records. A label that brought us acts such as Depeche Mode, Moby, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and many more.
Miller is also a proud advocate of our speakers (he has used BM15s for as long as he can remember, and still uses them in his London and Berlin studios), and he has strong opinions on personal reference monitors:
"I’d rather just have one pair of speakers that I trust. And I don’t need to hear them really loud. I just need to hear them clearly – that’s the most important thing”
Personal Reference Monitors
When we started our LYD project, we wanted to create the best nearfield monitor for artists working in smaller setups such as editing rooms and home studios. To do so, we had to look at our past – looking at everything that made our previous monitors great. After that, we went back to the drawing board to find out what we could achieve with the available platforms and technologies.
