Dynaudio unveils its first intelligent wireless multi-room music system – MUSIC
Dynaudio, renowned for its heritage of handcrafted high-end loudspeakers for professional recording studios, cars, and living rooms, launches Music – a family of four intelligent wireless speakers with one-touch simplicity. Each of these speakers adapts seamlessly and automatically to any room or position, and to ambient noise levels for music to always sound pristine. They can also intuitively personalise playlists featuring only the music you love, at the touch of a button.
Intelligent Performance Optimisation Anywhere in the Room
The built-in RoomAdapt technology senses where you place the speaker, whether it is in a corner, against a rear wall, or in free space, then automatically adjusts itself to each new position and optimises performance always to deliver the best sound possible. You can now move your music whenever and wherever you want. RoomAdapt is not merely a “loudness” control or bass-cut filter. The technology optimises volume and tone simultaneously, sensing the room through an onboard microphone and calibrating as it is moved.
Essential musical details will always be clear too, thanks to NoiseAdapt. Even when conversations get louder, the room gets noisier, and the speaker volume is low, there is no need to turn up the volume or tweak the tone controls to hear tunes correctly – the essential details in your songs always shine through. Sudden silence? It can handle that too, without you touching a remote control of fiddling with any button.
These are all based on Dynaudio’s expertise in DSP (digital signal processing), gained from researching and developing high-end active speakers, professional studio set-ups and cutting-edge in-car hi-fi systems.
The accompanying free app for iOS and Android uses Dynaudio’s sophisticated Music Now algorithm to learn up to five users’ musical tastes and play automatically generated playlists with one touch of a button on the speaker.
It means there is no need to scroll through endless playlists, only to get bored trying to find something to listen to. It is just like turning on a radio – and the station is guaranteed to play music you want to hear. (The added benefit? No unwanted dialogue from DJs.)
Each Music speaker has five presets. These can be filled with anything accessible from the app: Smart Music Now playlists (from multiple user profiles), internet radio stations, albums, artists and more. Online content from selected services can be accessed straight from the app too, making things even more convenient. Now, whenever you want music, all you need to do is press the button on the speaker.
All four speakers in the Music family are active (each driver has a dedicated high-performance class-D amplifier specially tuned to match it), and they all have slightly different features to suit different lifestyles and situations.
Traditional Dynaudio craftsmanship
All the speakers use Dynaudio’s proprietary MSP cone material in their woofers and midrange drivers. MSP has the ideal combination of stiffness, lightweight and excellent internal damping to produce music without distortion. The same material is used across the entire product family in Dynaudio, right up to the range-topping Evidence Platinum series. Their soft-dome tweeters are based on Dynaudio’s high-end speakers, tuned by the same team that works on its “money-no-object” hi-fi speakers and “zero-compromise” pro studio systems.
Music 1 (S$849 incl. GST) is battery and mains-powered. It has one 4-inch woofer and a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter. Total power is 80W (each driver has its 40W amplifier), and its battery lasts up to eight hours. Bring it anywhere!
Music 3 (S$1,099 incl. GST) is battery and mains-powered. It has one 5-inch woofer and two 1-inch soft-dome tweeters. Total power is 120W (each driver has its 40W amplifier), its battery lasts up to eight hours, and the unit comes with remote control. Bring it anywhere!
Music 5 (S$1,349 incl. GST) is mains-powered. It has one 5-inch woofer, two 3- inch midrange drivers and two 1-inch soft-dome tweeters. It delivers a total of 250W (each driver has its 50W amplifier), and the unit comes with remote control.
Music 7 (S$1,649 incl. GST) is mains-powered. It has two 5-inch woofers, two 3- inch midrange drivers and two 1-inch soft-dome tweeters. Total power is 300W (each driver has its 50W amplifier), and the unit comes with remote control.
All the speakers in the family can stream via Wi-Fi, aptX Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay (AirPlay 2-ready), and can access DLNA devices on your home networks. They all have USB inputs for iOS audio and charging iOS devices, and can accept 3.5 mm analogue inputs. The Music 5 and Music 7 add digital optical inputs to the mix (both support signals up to 24-bit/96kHz), while the Music 7 has an HDMI connector with Audio Return Channel to turn it into a soundbar.
Up to six speakers can be connected at a time and arranged into multi-room groups, or controlled individually from the Dynaudio app.
Traditional Dynaudio craftsmanship
Each model is available in Dark Grey, Red and Blue. With high quality, 3- dimensional cloth finish custom-made by the acclaimed Danish textile house Gabriel, the speakers look different in different lighting and from different angles. The family of Music speakers are constructed from honest, high-quality materials, including a one-piece, brushed aluminium surround on the Music 5 and Music 7. It is a product built to last, both regarding style and wear-and-tear. Both the Music 5 and Music 7 can be wall-mounted using a dedicated steel wall- bracket.
And that design? It is quintessentially Danish, high quality and innovative as you would expect from Dynaudio, plus some added inspiration from origami, traditional Chinese boat sails and even stealth fighter jets.
Design Director of Dynaudio, Malte Köhns said:
“Everyone can make a box and put it somewhere in the house, but making a product that looks nice on the table from all angles is difficult.”
The entire range is now available at AV One Showroom (1 Coleman Street, #01- 01/10/21/22, The Adelphi, Singapore 179803) and Stereo (68 Orchard Road, Plaza Singapura, #04-06, Singapore 238839). For a limited time, each new Music speaker comes nine months of free TIDAL streaming.
