Connecting the loudspeakers

  • To connect the loudspeakers, switch all components off.

Connecting the digital signal source

You can connect your loudspeakers as follows:

  • Both loudspeakers are connected using cables. This requires two digital cables but the systems benefits from signal processing of 24 bits/192 kHz.
  • You only connect one loudspeaker using a cable; the connection between the loudspeakers is wireless. This requires one digital cable and provides signal processing capabilities of 24 bits/96 kHz.
  • Both loudspeakers are operated wirelessly via a Dynaudio Hub or Connect box with signal processing of 24 bits/96kHz.

Connecting both loudspeakers with cables

  1. Connect the digital output for the signal source to the digital input (Digital Audio IN) on one loudspeaker. You can choose whether to use the right or left loudspeaker.
  2. Operate the connected loudspeaker as master by setting the Channel Mode switch on the rear side of the housing to Master.
  3. Connect the digital output on the master loudspeaker to the digital input (Digital Audio IN) on the other loudspeaker.
  4. Operate the loudspeaker connected in this step as slave by setting the Channel Mode switch on the rear side of the housing to Slave.

Connecting only one loudspeaker with a cable

  1. Connect the digital output for the signal source to the digital input (Digital Audio IN) on one loudspeaker. You can choose whether to use the right or left loudspeaker.
  2. Operate the connected loudspeaker as master by setting the Channel Mode switch on the rear side of the housing to Master.
  3. Operate the other loudspeaker as slave by setting the Channel Mode switch on the rear side of the housing to Slave.

Operating the loudspeakers via a Hub or Connect

Dynaudio’s innovative Connect system offers the option to operate the loud­speakers completely wirelessly. The connection to the loudspeakers is established by either a Dynaudio Hub or Connect box to which the analog and/or digital sources can be connected. For more details, please refer to the Connect Owner’s Manual.

  1. Install and configure the Connect system according to the Connect owner’s manual.
  2. On the rear side of the housing, select the red, green, or blue zone. Loudspeakers that belong to a common zone can be operated together using the remote control.
  3. Operate one loudspeaker as master and the other as slave by setting the respective switch (Channel Mode) correspondingly on the rear side of the housing. The assignment of master and slave is irrelevant.

Connecting the analog signal source

The loudspeakers can also output signals from an analog signal source. The signal source is connected to the analog inputs.

  1. Connect the left analog output from the signal source to the analog input (Analog Audio IN) on the left loudspeaker.
  2. Connect the right analog output from the signal source to the analog input (Analog Audio IN) on the right loudspeaker.
  3. Operate one loudspeaker as master and the other as slave by setting the respective switch (Channel Mode) correspondingly on the rear side of the housing. The assignment of master and slave is irrelevant.

Operating the loudspeakers without controlling the volume

You can also operate the loudspeakers without controlling the volume yourself. The amplifiers integrated into the loudspeakers function as a power amplifier; volume is controlled via the source signal (e.g. pre-amplifier).

  1. Connect the left analog output from the signal source to the analog input (Analog Audio IN) on the left loudspeaker.
  2. Connect the right analog output from the signal source to the analog input (Analog Audio IN) on the right loudspeaker.
  3. Set the Channel Mode switch on the back side of the housing to External.

High sound pressure levels

In the External operating mode, signals are amplified at the maximum. Connecting a signal source with an uncontrolled or maximum level can harm your hearing and cause damage to the components.

  • Only connect controllable signal sources.
  • Before switching on the loudspeakers, turn down the volume for the signal source using its volume control.
