Dynaudio Expands Core Range Of Studio Monitors

Core 47 compact three-way monitor and Core Sub offer digital inputs (AES3) and support up to 24-bit/192 kHz signals with internal DSP.

Dynaudio, the Danish studio-monitor manufacturer, is adding two new models to the Core reference series, introduced at the 2019 NAMM show.

Core 47 is a compact three-way monitor with a 7-inch woofer, a dedicated 4-inch midrange driver and the new 28mm Esotar Pro tweeter. Core Sub is a subwoofer with four 9-inch long-throw woofers and 2x 500W of power.

“Core 47 fills the gap between the Core 7 and Core 59 models,” says Dynaudio Pro product manager Rune Jacobsen.

“Its footprint is comparable to Core 7, but it’s a three-way design with a dedicated midrange driver for the absolute highest degree of detail when reproducing sound in this critical frequency area – where, for instance, vocals are located. It features the same ingenious DSP options as the rest of the Core monitors and packs power to deliver SPL that will meet the needs of any producer or sound engineer.

Core Sub is tailored to be the ideal low-frequency partner to any Core-based set-up. With four long-throw woofers and 1000W of power it delivers powerful and reliable low-frequency reproduction regardless of whether it’s part of a master stack, or a surround sound or immersive speaker setup with height and overhead channels.”

Prototypes of Core 47’s sister loudspeakers, Core 7 and Core 59, were put through their paces in an active recording environment in the Dynaudio Unheard studio at Denmark’s Smukfest music festival in 2018, as well as during NAMM 2019. Lessons learned from those real-world tests, in combination with measurement in Dynaudio’s Jupiter test facility, were invaluable in creating the final products

Core 47 and Core Sub have digital inputs (AES3) and support up to 24-bit/192 kHz signals, and the internal DSP (digital signal processor) operates at the same high 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 solves this issue with four indentations on each side and a set of special pads to fit them. Dynaudio has also designed a bracket for Core 47 for wall or ceiling installation. With the appropriate adapter it can also double as a desk-stand.

Core 47 and Core Sub features Pascal class-D amplifiers chosen after a series of intensive listening tests.

The two additions to the Core range couple accuracy with consistency. When measured precisely, all Core loudspeakers are tuned to match within a very narrow 0.2 dB tolerance.

All Dynaudio monitors are developed, designed, tested and made in Skanderborg, Denmark – and key components, including drivers and tweeters, are made by hand in Skanderborg as well.

The Core series is the first Dynaudio Pro range to have been fully developed in the company’s advanced new R&D centre, Dynaudio Labs. Jupiter, its 13 x 13 x 13m measuring room is especially beneficial when developing active loudspeakers. Measuring both on- and off-axis performance can now be done in minutes rather than days – letting engineers get on with the work of prototyping and listening rather than waiting for numbers to crunch.

• Core 47 and Core Sub are available in Q3 2019.
• Core 47 MAP: USD $2500
• Core Sub MAP: USD $4000
