Dynaudio releases ‘Lyd’ monitors.

The new LYD series is tailored for the creative at heart, whether you mix out of a small recording studio, an editing room, or a home studio. In these situations, the powerful LYD range reveals its prowess for low volume precision making it ideal for editing and mixing in whatever room you prefer and without breaking the sound barrier.

“We went back to the drawing board with LYD and looked at everything that made our monitors great in the past, but also at what we can achieve with the new platforms we have developed over recent years. In the end, we want to give all artists and engineers the best possible tool to help them achieve their best results – to redefine their music as we have redefined our monitors – and I believe LYD delivers exactly that” says Sebastian Rodens, Product Manager at Dynaudio PRO.
Since the formation of Dynaudio in 1977, craftsmanship has been an integral part of the brand’s legacy and while LYD is a redefinition of Dynaudio’s previous series of monitors, the company has not disowned this characterising trait. The 28 mm Soft Dome tweeter and the three, depending on the model, differently-sized MSP drive units used for LYD, are still handcrafted in the Danish factory near Skanderborg.

Each handmade drive unit is well-cared for: fuelled individually by state-of-the-art Bi-Amped Class-D amplifiers featuring 96kHz / 24-bit signal paths that make sure they have plenty of power to reproduce sound faithfully.

With their extensive research and know-how, Dynaudio wanted to offer choices and opportunities for musicians, producers, and artists; options that enabled them to mix and edit their music with precision. To do so an advanced DSP was included with two tuning modes for different setups, Sound Balance filters for tailoring the frequency response and Bass Extension for moving the bass cut-off to the preferred position.

Ole Jensen, VP of Sales – Professional Audio comments: “We are very excited to launch our new range of studio monitors. LYD introduces some of our latest developments such as a new amplifier design, in a new and refreshing colour scheme. When we revealed LYD to our sales channel, we got overwhelming feedback. Everyone at Dynaudio PRO is looking forward to bringing these great monitors to the market and launching them at Frankfurt Musikmesse is the first step.

You can see the range at our booth in HALL 9.1-A43 and listen for yourself.”
