Anaheim, CA (January 23, 2017)—Dynaudio PRO unveiled its latest addition to the LYD studio monitor range at the 2017 NAMM Show, the LYD 48 3-way active monitor, which couples an eight- and a four-inch woofer with a one-inch tweeter. Built to serve in “midfield” control room applications, it will be available in white and black (as pictured) as well as an all-black version.
Each of the woofers and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated Class D amplifier, effectively delivering 80W, 50W and 50W of power per monitor, respectively. The amp features a 24-bit, 96 kHz signal path, selectable input sensitivity, and the same Standby Mode as the original LYD speakers.
Further, the new 3-way version features Bass Extension, allowing switching between the default and maximum bass or maximum volume settings; these changes affect the low-end response while linear frequency response remains intact, offers promotional materials.
The LYD 48’s Sound Balance option is effectively a “tilt filter, tipping the tonal balance gently,” Dynaudio confirms. “It emphasizes one end of the spectrum while decreasing the opposite end by the same amount.” Touted as different from most shelving filters, it is designed to alter the frequency response without interfering with phase. Sound Balances toggles between “Bright” and “Dark” labeled settings.
Like all Dynaudio speakers, the LYD 48 is designed and built entirely in Dynaudio’s facilities in Skanderborg, Denmark and features handmade driver units.
Dynaudio PRO is distributed in the United States by Yorkville.
