Evoke is for you. It’s for living rooms. Home cinema rooms. Listening rooms. Even bedrooms. It’s serious hi-fi, everywhere.
This brand-new speaker range takes advanced technology directly from our top-of-the-range speakers – including finishes, driver technology and design. And that means each of the five Evoke models can vibe with you, grow with you, and stay with you – however you listen.
Every single part has been looked at from the ground up. Every driver has been optimised in Dynaudio's state-of-the-art Jupiter measuring lab. And every finish has been painstakingly formulated and executed to reflect those on our most exclusive speakers.
Music should last a lifetime. With Evoke, it will.
The new Evoke family will be on-sale in Europe in February 2019. It will arrive in other markets in April.
A brand-new Dynaudio speaker range
Creating an entirely new family of loudspeakers is something our designers and engineers relish. At the start the whole process is a sandbox – one that’s full of out-there ideas, wishlists and ingenious solutions that had been percolating in brains and notebooks.
And because they have four decades of established research and legendary products to draw on, our engineers know they’re on pretty much the right track before they even put the first prototype together.
With Evoke, they landed right in the Goldilocks zone. After months of intense R&D it became a five-strong family of speakers. All that experience meant the team could combine cutting-edge technology directly from the Contour and all-new Confidence ranges – not to mention ultra-high build and finish quality and traditional, elegant cabinets designed to look great in any listening environment – with exceptional value for money.
Listen to your favourite album for the first time. Again.
We created Evoke because we want everyone to be able to enjoy genuine hi-fi – the thing we all aspire to – without having to rearrange rooms, replace much-loved equipment, or agonise over the price.
We created Evoke for the people who agonise over what to listen to next.
And when they finally decide, we know they’ll hear something new in their favourite music. It could be the tiniest sound of a hand moving up the neck of a nylon-string guitar in an LA recording studio, or the shuffle of a cello player’s feet on-stage at the Berliner Philharmonie. It might be a backing vocal that suddenly makes that pre-chorus sparkle, or that extra bit of heavy-metal punch that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up (and sets off the neighbour’s dog).
Listen to Evoke and you’ll rediscover everything you love about music. Use them in stereo. Use them as part of a multi-channel home cinema system. Add one of our optional subwoofers. The family is designed to grow and change with you.
“I didn’t know there was a tambourine part in that song”
How do we do it? Experience, technology, intensive analysis in our Jupiter measuring facility… and good, old-fashioned listening. Hundreds of hours of it.
The entire range uses trickle-down technology from our top-of-the-line loudspeakers.
Take the Cerotar tweeter, which makes its debut in Evoke. It’s a brand-new, ground-up design based on our award-winning Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the mighty Esotar3 found in the new, money-no-object Confidence series. Underneath the 28mm soft-dome diaphragm sits the Hexis inner dome (something you’ll currently only find in Confidence). This refines the airflow behind the tweeter’s playing surface to smooth-out its frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. Behind it all, the new motor system uses strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic magnets to further increase tweeter sensitivity.
It all took a very long time (and more than one effervescent ‘discussion’) to refine and tune the Cerotar. But we think you’ll agree it was time well spent. Its developments give you a detailed and natural high frequency response that’s smooth enough to take you through many albums’ worth of music in one sitting without feeling tired. Exactly as it should be.
Ace of bass
The Esotec+ woofers use MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) in their diaphragms – just like all Dynaudio speakers have done since we started in 1977.
The versions used in Evoke 10, 20, 30 and 25C use new surrounds and improved Ferrite+ magnet systems to extend their throw, their frequency response and their low-frequency dynamics – all while maintaining stellar midrange performance. And the 18cm driver in Evoke 50 borrows technology from both the Contour and Confidence ranges to deliver eyebrow-raising low-frequency dynamics and timing.
You’ll hear that as full, precise bass with all the clarity you could want. Perfect for anything from intimate classical music to full-throttle rock or dance.
The Evoke 50’s midrange driver is directly derived from the design developed for the renowned Contour 60. It uses a powerful neodymium magnet, plus lightweight materials (including an aluminium voice-coil) specifically optimised for midrange duties.
It’s all marshalled by high-grade crossovers between the tweeter, midrange and low-frequency drivers.
But we can’t perfect all that without some seriously long listening sessions. And that, for us, is the key: we listen like you do. No song is off-limits. Nothing is too cheesy, or too high-brow. We love music, so there’s no other way we can design our speakers other than for fellow music-lovers.
What will music sound like in 30 years? Awesome.
Evoke is built to last. Each of the simple, elegant cabinets (themselves the result of months of painstaking prototyping, refinement and care), is available in four finishes: Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood.
New lacquering techniques mean the gloss versions have a stunning, almost glass-like finish, while the wood versions have open veneers for a warm, natural feeling. And they’ll only look better over time.
Our designers wanted Evoke to be the kind of speaker you take with you from student residence, to apartment, to house. The kind of speaker you’ll rediscover your favourite music with – and then pass it on.
Listen up: Evoke is for you.
