At the 2019 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Dynaudio is launching Core, a new reference monitor series comprised of the 3-way Core 59 and a 2-way Core 7.
“The range uses our most advanced drivers – including all-new tweeters that feature the ingenious new resonance-defeating Hexis inner dome – plus innovative new DSP technology for even more features and surprising ease of use,” states Dynaudio Pro product manager Rune Jacobsen. “In short, extreme consistency between speakers and intelligent, flexible cabinet design – plus the best digital amplifiers we’ve ever heard – bring the pinnacle of honesty, consistency and reliability to your studio.”
Both Core 7 and Core 59 have digital inputs (AES3), support up to 24-bit/192 kHz signals, and the internal DSP (digital signal processor) operates at the same level when using the analog inputs.
The series is also designed for flexible positioning. Depending on the studio environment, monitors might need to be placed sideways or upside down, which might mean less-than-perfect contact with the surface area. Core addresses this issue with four indentations on each side and a set of Dynaudio-developed pads to fit them.
In addition, the 3-way Core 59 has a rotation flex system — the Orbit — which has been adapted from Dynaudio’s AIR series. It lets users rotate the plate that holds the mid/woofer and tweeter to suit either vertical or horizontal positioning. The Orbit has been improved since the original with developments including an acoustically optimized back chamber.
Core also features Pascal class-D amplifiers chosen after a series of intensive listening tests, based upon high-frequency smoothness, ample power resources and stellar dynamics.
And, the Core range couples extreme accuracy with consistency. When measured precisely, Core loudspeakers are stated to be tuned to match perfectly within a narrow 0.2 dB tolerance.
Core 59 is prepared for VESA mounting (optional), and Dynaudio has designed special brackets for Core 7 for wall or ceiling installation.
The Core range is scheduled to ship in Q2 2019. Estimated pricing, excluding tax: Core 7 — $2,000 US MAP/1,700 € Euro List; Core 59 — $3,000 US MAP/2,700 € Euro List.
