We put the same attention to detail into developing all our products, and we share as much technology as we can across our ranges to bring authentic Dynaudio performance to every speaker we make. Emit might be the entry point, but it offers much more than just a glimpse into our high-end world.

Stephen Entwistle, Senior Acoustics Engineer

Emit 20 is a high-performance standmount speaker derived from our Evoke, Contour i and Confidence series. It gives a stellar combination of detail and punch for small to medium-sized rooms.

We don’t use the term ‘authentic fidelity’ lightly. With Emit 20, that’s exactly what you’ll get: a premium audiophile speaker that astonishes at the price. It might be an ‘entry-level’ model, but Emit 20 is still crammed with technology that you’ll find in our other families, right up to the flagship Confidence range and our Core professional reference monitors. Make no mistake: you’ll experience performance you simply wouldn’t expect at this level.

Mid/bass power and control

Emit 20 uses an 18cm MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) woofer, based on the one we’ve used in the Evoke series. MSP is a material we developed in-house, and have used for many years on our most renowned models. The cone itself is a one-piece design; the dust-cap is moulded as part of the playing surface, which gives it a solid connection to the voice-coil that moves it back and forth. You’ll hear that connection as supreme control and detail in the low and midrange frequencies.

The voice-coil itself is aluminium, wound onto a two-layer glass-fibre former. We’ve a long history of using aluminium wire in our voice-coils – and for good reason. It’s light, so doesn’t impede fine movement, and we can get more windings on the former for a given length of wire. That means more ‘BL’, or magnetic power. More power means more punch. We’ve boosted that further, too, by coating the aluminium wire in copper.

Combined with the stacked ferrite magnet system and new surround, that gives Emit 20’s long-throw mid/bass driver all the bass power you could want, even at high volumes, combined with amazing control over midrange frequencies (where instruments such as guitars, vocals and violins reside).

High-level tweeter performance

Emit 20 uses the Cerotar tweeter directly from Evoke. It’s a 28mm soft-dome design that includes the ingenious Hexis inner-dome device. The coated fabric dome delivers sweet-sounding high frequencies – all the openness and detail the artists want you to experience in their recordings – while the Hexis smooths the frequency response and reduces unwanted resonance for surprising clarity.

Cerotar is powered by a powerful Ferrite+ strontium carbonate ceramic magnet system. It gives the tweeter all the power it needs to play loud without breakup while maintaining all the nuance you could want. Even at neighbour-bothering levels.

And because it uses technology from our top-of-the-range Core pro reference speakers (whose users need to listen intently for long periods), you won’t get tired when you’re in the middle of a long session.

Inside the crossover

The mid/bass driver and tweeter are marshalled by a custom-designed crossover from the same team who brought you Heritage Special and Core. Our engineers used a hybrid first- and second-order topology for the tweeter and woofer respectively, giving them exceptional control over each driver’s behaviour. It means you’ll hear what the artist wants you to hear, without compromise.

An impressive finish

Emit 20 comes in three custom-designed laminate finishes – Black, White and Walnut – that beautifully complement the cabinets’ clean Scandinavian design (conceived in-house at our headquarters in Denmark). Black magnetic grilles come as standard in the box.

We’ve even lavished attention on the cover-rings, which hide the mounting screws. They’re one-piece moulded with the surface finish embedded in the material, which eliminates the need for lacquer – so they won’t degrade over time.

If you want an audiophile-level standmount speaker for a stereo set-up in medium-size room, or fancy a little more ‘oompf’ from your rear surround channels, Emit 20 is the ideal choice.

Features

Hi-fi starts with Emit

  • Designed and engineered in Denmark

    The entire Emit family has been put through its paces in our world-class Jupiter measuring facility at Dynaudio Labs. We treat it exactly the same as we do every other speaker in our range: no stone left unturned.

  • Cerotar tweeter

    Emit uses the highly regarded Cerotar tweeter from our Evoke series. It's a high-quality high-frequency driver inspired by our top-end Confidence and Heritage Special speakers, and includes the innovative resonance-defeating Hexis inner dome.

  • Clean and simple

    Each speaker in the Emit range is designed to fit with modern lifestyles and interiors. Clean lines, simple finishes and minimalist Scandinavian looks – whether you're listening in stereo or have a full multi-channel system.
