Dynaudio introduce new active wireless Focus speakers
Danish audio specialist Dynaudio has launched a new range of active wireless stereo speakers – the Dynaudio Focus speakers have been described as “mixing modernity and tradition, with a range of exciting features for audiophiles”.
The Dynaudio Focus speakers follow the Focus XD range from Dynaudio, launched in 2014. At the time, it was the company’s first foray into active streaming speakers.
Dynaudio Focus 10 – more than just a pair of active loudspeakers
The speakers come in three models. The two-way Focus 10 sells for a reported €5,000, with a sealed-box design. It is noted for being the smallest product in the Focus range, and also one of the most popular.
“Focus 10 is more than just a pair of active loudspeakers”, says Dynaudio. “It’s a complete music system”. The product has capabilities for almost every music streaming service, such as Tidal Connect and Apple Airplay 2, as well as Roon and Bluetooth. The speakers can play anything that is uploaded in digital form, from any accessible site or platform, even from a networked hard-drive.
The speakers also come with built-in WiSA technology, which means users can connect wirelessly to a compatible TV or USB dongle. Each speaker features 390W of class-D Pascal amplification (110W for the tweeter and 280W for the woofer), making the model ideal for providing high-quality sound to even a medium-sized room.
The Focus 30 XD has been described by Dynaudio as “the next generation of floor-standing high-end loudspeakers”, the speakers also happen to be completely wireless. The speakers come with no amplifier or speaker cables, allowing for an easy setup. “The Focus XD range is a complete hi-fi system… without the clutter of a complete hi-fi system”, the company explains.
The high-end active speakers are noted for offering high-resolution wireless streaming, from almost any source, just like the Focus 10. Users can send a digital signal to the speakers, and they will apparently be able to maintain the original quality of the recording. “It stays pure all the way from the recording studio to the speaker driver”.
Dynaudio’s digital processing technology can handle files that are 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution, guaranteeing quality in abundance for listeners who demand it. The speakers in the Focus range notably share the same controls and connections, making it easy for users to configure models. A digital coaxial, analogue input and seven-position control all add customisation to the speakers.
Furthermore, the firmware for the Focus XD can actually be upgraded, with automatic updates integrating as they arrive.
Dynaudio describes the Focus 50 as “perhaps the world’s most advanced active wireless hi-fi system”. Why? The model has been spotlighted for its studio-grade performance, with amplifiers that include room-compensation algorithms. This gives listeners the chance to listen to “what the artists heard in the studio”.
The model also features the signature Dynaudio drivers. “From the soft-dome tweeter with Hexis, to the MSP mid/bass driver with its signature aluminium voice-coil, Focus 50 doesn’t stray from its legendary roots”, the company explains. “Modern technology, classic performance”.
The speaker also has a distinct Danish design, with a minimal presentation made to compliment living spaces and studios. Finishes include Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Blonde Wood and Walnut Wood.
The Focus 50 is available for €10,000.
