Dynaudio ...

picture of product In 1977 when the company was founded in Denmark, Dynaudio, like most speaker companies, manufactured speakers using its own crossovers while relying on OEM drivers. However, early on the company realized that the only way to further improve performance was through innovation of driver technology.

Dynaudio had ideas and visions that were way ahead of the products available from driver manufacturers and thus decided to start developing driver technology on their own. A major R&D programme of driver technology was launched and after three years, in the early eighties, all Dynaudio loudspeaker systems were equipped with Dynaudio's innovative driver technology.

At this point, Dynaudio began to sell its drivers to other speaker manufacturers. This proved to be very successful as there was and still is a huge demand for high-quality drivers but no suppliers - the very same reason why Dynaudio started to research and develop driver technology.

Dynaudio drivers became popular all over the world and were widely recognized for its quality both by speaker designers and end users. Many agreed with the old Dynaudio philosophy: "The heart of any speakers system is the drivers".

The company has become known for quality, innovation and advanced technology and decided to take full advantage of its driver technology and increased focus on building its own loudspeaker systems.

Simply, Dynaudio wanted to build a brand with a range of loudspeakers that guaranteed the quality that had come to be associated with the drivers. Still today, the fact that Dynaudio starts a product design by designing the right drivers is to a large extend what makes Dynaudio unique compared to many other speaker manufactures.

Starting a speaker design by designing special drivers that are second to none when it comes to low distortion, extended dynamic range and high power handling is an advantage beyond imagination or perhaps not. Try listen to the speaker-systems.

After achieving an industry leader position and an outstanding reputation in high-end hi-fi, the company enrolled into a unique co-operation with some of the worlds leading studio designers. After experiencing overwhelming interest from the Pro audio market, Dynaudio decided to establish a subsidiary to focus 100% on designing monitors for the professional audio market. Allied with Andy Munro, the studio designer, Dynaudio Acoustics became a reality and rapidly got established and recognized as the technological leader in the Pro Audio market.

The fine array of monitors - ranging from small nearfields to big main-systems, active or passive, - keeps expanding driven mainly by demands from our critical customers but also by progress and innovation in technology.

Customers include top recording studios like Air Lyndhurst, The Pierce Room in London, NRG Studios in Los Angeles, Coconut Studios in Cologne, The Hit Factory in New York, as well as leading record producers such as Mike Hedges, Trevor Horn, Steve Lipson, and Mutt Lange. Users among artists includes the Pet Shop Boys, the Cocteau Twins, Sade, Marillion and Prodigy. Also a wide range of television, radio, and postproduction users are putting their trust in Dynaudio Acoustics monitors.

In 1999 Dynaudio Acoustics tied up with another strong partner, TC Electronic, for worldwide sales, marketing, distribution and service. TC Electronic is a market-leader in DSP technology for Pro Audio applications and moreover highly respected for an outstanding sales-and service system. Allied with TC, Dynaudio Acoustics aims at getting even closer to their customers and set new standards in terms of service and sales.

Although Dynaudio Acoustics is a separate business-unit operated by Pro Audio people (a bunch of musicians, engineers, studio designers etc.) for Pro Audio people, the company is taking advantage of Dynaudio's proprietary driver technology, state of the art research and manufacturing facilities. It is a unique set-up aiming at ensuring focus on our customers needs while keeping costs down through economics of scale.
