Professional Sound for Everyone

Review LYD 5

“With the LYD 5 Dynaudio has clearly set an example, that a professional, transparent sounding studio monitor can be affordable for everyone.”

- Fritz Fey, Studio Magazin

Studio Magazin is one of the most prestigious pro audio publications in Germany, and it has been so for many years. On board from the beginning - and the face of the magazine - is Editor in Chief, Fritz Fey, who sometimes picks a few products to review personally.

We were pleased that he chose LYD 5 for a thorough round of critical listening and evaluation. And we were even more pleased when we learned what he concluded upon his test...​

The original review is in German, but we have translated a short passage from the conclusion:

"With LYD 5, Dynaudio has set a clear example that a professional, transparent-sounding studio monitor can be affordable for everyone. For Home studio owners, this could be the perfect entry into the world of decision-safe listening, assuming, of course, that the room-acoustic conditions are right.

In direct comparison with the competition not only in a similar price category, but also over it, the LYD 5 certainly doesn’t have to hide. With powerful, defined depths, clear, non-coloring mids and fast transients, combined with an excellent positional and spatial depth imaging, you get a professional listening tool, which is definitely also a reliable partner in the field for audio professionals - in editing suites or on the go.

However, this monitor is made for those whose budget is not enough to grab the stars, but who still want to hear what it's like. Overall, this Danish-produced speaker is excellent - it is a product to my taste!"

    "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:

    New Xeo 2 Review in ConnectedHome

    The Xeo 2s have made their rounds in the Australia reviewer community. This time, Stephen Dawson from Connected Home has taken a look at the Xeos. And, as he confesses: they left him confused.

    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 Audiophile Apartment reviews Xeo 4

    The Audiophile Apartment is for all of those living in smaller spaces looking for small and stylish sonic solutions that fit their home. This time around the Audiophile Apartment has narrowed in on the Xeo 4: a pair of compact wireless speakers.​

    XEO 4 - AudioStream

    "The Xeo 4s and Xeo 6s need just two things from you—a source(s) and power.
    That's it.
    That's all you need for a complete Hi-Fi. Interested?"

    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, 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"

    “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

    Countour 30 speaker review - These speakers can really boogie

    Scott Campbell reviews the Contour 30 in the new issue of Audio Esoterica. The Contour 30 has made customs and entered the ‘land down under.' Here, it has managed to impress reviewer Scott Campbell and fool two surprising, but nonetheless, Hi-Fi accustomed reviewers: his pooches…

    “That’s how a piano sounds like!“

    The new Contour series has taken the German reviewer community by storm with praise such as: "Danish Dynamite", "Absolute Spitzenklasse", and "The New Contour Sets Milestone".

    The balanced sound of LYD 48 gives quick and great results

    "The Dynaudio LYD 48 studio monitors and 18S sub combine to create a great-sounding four-way system. The transparent representation of the individual instruments of a song gives you a lot of confidence in what you're hearing when mixing, so that details can be nicely highlighted and you quickly get useful results."

    LYD 48 in short: Balanced and uniform sound

    "We definitely appreciated the sound we heard through this monitor - full and consistent - which I believe is the result of excellent engineering in horizontal development with the elegant choice of the symmetrical arrangement of the speakers."

    (Francesco Passarelli, MusicOff)

    Fantastic detail and on-point transient response

    "The detail in the top end is fantastic, the transient response is on point, and the low end is quite substantial while being well-controlled. If you’re shopping in this price range, you should give these a listen."

    (Brandon T. Hickey, Mix Magazine)

    You could listen to these for hours without experiencing fatigue

    Things just sound like they should. When A/Bing with some other speakers, coming back to the Dynaudio combo just felt right.

    - Guitar Interactive

    Awesome Transient Response

    "I immediately noticed the monitors’ outstanding depth and imaging, including a rock-solid phantom center. The transient response was also awesome, and not because of peaky high-frequency reproduction; the highs sounded smooth and were non-fatiguing."

    - Michael Cooper, Mix Magazine

    Audiofanzine LYD 7 Review

    "With so much capability, the Dynaudio Evidence Platinums should be your last speaker purchase."

    “…Wow! The sound had never been so true and the 3D sound stage had never been so vivid!"

    Lincoln Cheng

    Evidence Platinum, image hifi 2013

    “…a loudspeaker so overwhelming like I've never experienced before.": Editor-in-chief and high-end-audio enthusiast Uwe Kirbach reviewed the Evidence Platinum in image hifi 2/2013”

    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.
