With forty years clocked up in the loudspeaker business, Dynaudio were at Munich High-End 2017 to launch a fortieth anniversary model: a standmount called The Special Forty. It does what it says on the tin.
The Special Forty’s 3cm tweeter, exclusive to this model, is a fresh take on their Esotar design and the all-new 17cm mid/bass driver is claimed by the Danish company to be one of their finest to date. Both are made in house at Dynaudio’s Skanderborg facility and are stitched together by a first-order crossover.
Here’s Dynaudio’s Roland Hoffman with more technical info:
Those unmoved by aesthetics will likely see just another Dynaudio standmount. Not that that is a bad thing. However, those who subscribe to the “looks matter” point of view will see high gloss pieces of audio furniture. As a friend once said, “It’s fun to look at nice things”. It’s also nice to listen to them.
At €3000/pair we get a choice of Grey Birch and Red Birch finishes. Guess which one I prefer?
