Dynaudio Updates Entry-Level Emit Speaker Range
Dynaudio has updated its entry-level Emit range of two-channel and surround-sound speakers.
Dynaudio's Emit loudspeaker range has been given a 2021 update bringing the entry point to its high-end universe “eyebrow-raising audio performance for the price”, so says the confident Danish audio brand.
The new Emit range continues to comprise of two standmount models in the Emit 10 (above), the smallest in the range, and Emit 20 but adds the new Emit 50 to join the Emit 30 floorstander, while the Emit 25C replaces the 15C for centre-channel duties.
The 2021 Emit loudspeakers all feature 18mm MDF custom laminate finished cabinets sporting a new dual-flared bass-reflex port which Dynaudio says is optimised to reduce air turbulence and minimise unwanted 'chuffing', particularly with deep notes. Additionally, the internal damping material has apparently been measured down to the gram for the right combination of damping and openness.
Dynaudio Emit Drivers
Handling the upper-frequency range is Dynaudio's Cerotar tweeter which has quite the lineage.
Borrowed from the renowned Evoke series, the Cerotar is based on the Esotar Forty tweeter from the Special Forty anniversary speaker. Boasting a custom AirFlow magnet made from strontium carbonate ferrite+ ceramic and a 28mm voice-coil made from aluminium as found in the company's legendary Esotar 3 high-frequency driver, with the clever Hexis inner dome controlling airflow.
We are informed that unwanted resonances behind the coated fabric soft-dome diaphragm are reduced thanks to advanced airflow optimisation in the rear chamber. The result, so we are told, is cleaner, sweeter high-frequencies.
Dynaudio Chief Acoustic Specialist Daniel Emonts told StereoNET:
The beauty of working on a speaker like Emit is that we can use all the trickle-down technology we invented for our most premium speakers. It's the same men and women working on all the products, so we know exactly how to bring that calibre of performance to people taking their first steps in real high-end hi-fi.
Emit's mid/bass drivers, midrange units and woofers are all based on those found in the Evoke range. Their diaphragms are made from MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) – a material Dynaudio developed itself and is stated to deliver the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping for incredible accuracy.
These are bonded directly to the copper-clad aluminium voice-coil assembly, which promises to give more control over their movement.
Power comes by way of dual-stacked ferrite-ceramic magnet systems. Again, using more magnets is about achieving greater control over the driver's movement and excursion for increased sonic precision and apparently improving dynamics at lower frequencies while maintaining impressive midrange performance.
Dynaudio Emit Crossovers
Dishing out the driver's duties are hybrid design crossovers, using varying combinations of first-, second-, and fourth-order topologies. According to Dynaudio, the reason for this is simply because one size doesn't fit all.
So instead, each speaker in the range is given its own combination of crossover designs to ensure sonic unity across the series, which the manufacturer states is essential in multichannel systems. At the same time, this approach is said to enable the company to optimise each individual speaker's performance for the job it has to do.
The new Dynaudio Emit range is available now in Black, White and Walnut finishes and comes with black fabric grilles. Prices start at £630 (~US$870) for a pair of Emit 10, with the Emit 20 costing £825 (~$1,150) per pair. The floorstanders are £1,300 (~US$1,800) and £1,750 (~US$2,400) for a couple of Emit 30 and Emit 50, respectively. Finally, the Emit 25C centre-channel costs £600 (~US$830) each. Prices for Asia has yet to be announced.
Naturally, all the loudspeakers in the range have been designed, styled, tuned, and optimised in-house at Dynaudio Labs in Denmark, with the company's state-of-the-art Jupiter measuring facility playing a crucial role in their creation.
