LYD 8

Astonishing accuracy across the board

Precision, power… and properly honest reproduction. With a pair of LYD 8s taking charge of your music, you can be assured a pitch-perfect performance

With its 8in MSP woofer and state-of-the-art DSP, LYD 8 provides the kind of performance, precision and bass heft that dreams (and maybe hit albums) are made of. Like the rest of the range, these nearfield monitors let you tune their sound for their position in the room, feature handmade drivers, and contain advanced Class-D amps.

Features

  • Nearfield Monitor with 8" Woofer

  • Bi-amped speaker design with 50W HF/80W LF and state-of-the-art Class-D amplification

  • Bass extension to extend or curtail the low end frequency response

  • Two different tunings: one for free standing and one designed for speakers within 50 cm of wall

  • Sound balance to influence the overall response of the speaker

  • Made in Denmark

Soundcards and great monitors revolutionized my productions.

Reviews

Engineering Integrity Makes LYD Classy and Capable

"Both the LYD 5 and LYD 8 are classy and capable nearfield monitors invested with thoughtful electro-acoustic engineering. They look great, their performance is up there with the best in their class, and that they’re relatively affordable only increases their appeal. (…) If you asked me, and I’m sure you did, to come up with one phrase to describe my feelings about the LYD monitors it would be ‘engineering integrity’.”

Pro Tools Expert LYD Review: Near Field Size. Main Monitor Sound.

Pro Tools Expert took the entire LYD studio monitor in for a detailed review. As James Ivey points out, each model shines in its own way and is ideal for significant purposes.

Bonedo Considers LYD a Genuine Danish Delicacy

German online magazine, Bonedo, reviewed all 3 LYD models. In short, they conclude that LYD preserves the classic Dynaudio virtues: The design is modern, the standard of craftsmanship is high and the sound is immaculate and very transparent.

MusicTech LYD Review: Exceptional Degree of Clarity

MusicTech put LYD 5 and LYD 8 on the review test bench and receives a 9/10 rating, earning a genuine MusicTech 'Choice' recommendation.

Resident Advisor: Excellent Clarity Even at Very Low Volumes

"The bass on the LYD 8s is excellent. It was never cloudy or woolly and, in fact, revealed some of the flaws in my own audio interface converters. The high-end is equally impressive, with excellent clarity even at very low volumes. (...) It allows you to make decisions faster and move quickly through the mix process, a benefit that cannot be overstated."

The Most Extended and Linear Bass Response

"I felt rather comfortable nearly immediately with the LYD8s. Indeed, at first, the bottom-end response seemed a little too rumbly, but after a week of break-in, that bottom-end came into balance with the smooth and genuinely accurate performance of the soft dome tweeter. This was the most extended and linear bass response I’ve ever heard from compact nearfields. (...) I would estimate the LYD Series will become market leaders." - Rob Tavaglione
