"In a small or large room, these monitors sound fantastic. They have a beautiful response and a clarity that needs to be heard. If you need to hear faults in your mix, the LYD 48s will certainly help you find them." - Rob Gee (Mixdown Magazine)
Australian studio magazine, Mixdown, tested LYD 48 and basically concluded that 'clarity' is the keyword that stands left behind once the dust has settled...
"I think it is safe to say that the new LYD series of studio monitors from Dynaudio is going to be the most usable range of speakers they have ever produced for the home studio. There are a few tricks that are included in these monitors that will make them ideal for many of our readers, especially those recording and mixing in slightly larger rooms.
(...) The result is an overall listening experience that delivers articulation and clarity where it is needed. Plus you can drive more volume with the three Class-D amplified drivers to accommodate the larger room that they are more suited to. What results is the ability to listen critically at both lower volumes to pick out distinct mid-range articulation, and at higher volumes for focusing on how the low and high frequencies balance with the rest of the mix.
(...) There are no real bumps in certain frequencies from the EQ curves overlaying heavily between mismatched drivers with the three speakers working suitably well together here. The result is an articulated audio reproduction that allows you to hear the faults in your mix right away.
(...) Either way, in a small or large room, these monitors sound fantastic. They have a beautiful response and a clarity that needs to be heard. If you need to hear faults in your mix, the LYD 48s will certainly help you find them."
