Promising “exciting new products on the horizon”, Dynaudio has ceased production of its AIR series of reference monitors.
The decision was a difficult one, according to the company, who assures ongoing full technical and spares support for the range.
The AIR series was first introduced in 2002; “only a year after the very first Apple iPod was launched and digital audio was still a comparatively niche technology”, says the company.
Dynaudio says it is taking advantage of the “massive advances in DSP and loudspeaker design technology” to produce new monitor ranges.
“Dynaudio is embarking on a new and exciting phase of our company’s existence, designed to keep us at the cutting edge of both the professional and consumer audio markets,” says CTO Jan Abilegaard Pedersen.
“We already have new ranges in development and this year we are opening our new research and development center, a facility that will allow us to further increase our number of development engineers and will also make new and more sophisticated sound laboratories available to us.
“These sound laboratories will enable us to carry out highly advanced measurements and listening sessions. These will be especially important for our professional products, as they will allow us to increase product performance immensely, making it possible to include the very latest technologies into our loudspeakers.”
