Don’t let its size fool you – we thought big when it came to sound
You know what they say about good things and small packages. The remarkable Confidence C1 Platinum speakers take everything that’s amazing about the C4 and C2 and put it into a pair of immaculate, compact standmounters.
They use the same precision-coated Esotar2 soft-dome tweeter, the same MSP mid/bass woofer, seen here in a 17cm version, and the same Kapton voice-coil former, advanced first-order crossover, machined aluminium baffle and glass-blasted tweeter plate. And they deliver the same smooth tonal balance, resolution of detail and the feeling of being in the room with the musicians as their larger siblings.
We’ve used a high-quality classic first-order crossover filter – and select components – in a special design that achieves sound radiation with a slightly upwards directivity. The C1 Platinum delivers excellent imaging and soundstaging, while boundary reflections from the floor will be considerably less than with conventional monitor designs.
The C1 Platinum can be combined with the Dynaudio Stand 6 for total consistency in performance and design. The Stand 6 is made from aluminium and features a multi-layer plinth to provide the best possible foundation for a compact speaker.
