Dynaudio PRO Introduces LYD-48 3-Way Studio Monitor at NAMM
Dynaudio PRO is proud to announce its latest addition to the highly acclaimed LYD studio monitor range. The new LYD-48 features a 3-way speaker design, coupling an 8” and a 4” woofer with a 1” tweeter, making them well suited for nearfield as well as midfield monitor applications. It will be available as white and black, as the original LYD range, but also in a classic all-black version. “We are very excited to now add a bigger brother to the LYD range,” says Sebastian Rodens, Product Manager for Dynaudio’s PRO division. “This new 3-way monitor shares many of the same benefits as the original LYD range, including significant low-volume precision. Obviously, the new 3-way is even more powerful and brings audio precision to your passion regardless of whether you produce electronic music, rock, jazz, classical or any other genre – and at any listening volume.” Triple Power, Bass Extension & Sound Balance
Each of the woofers and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated state-of-the-art Class D amplifier, delivering 80W / 50W / 50W of power per monitor. The amp features a 96kHz/24bit signal path and selectable input sensitivity, as well as the same Standby Mode as the original LYD speakers. Also, like the other LYD monitors, the new 3-way version features Bass Extension, allowing for a choice between the default setting or pushing towards maximum bass or maximum volume. Changes will affect the low-end response, but importantly the linear frequency response remains intact. The Sound Balance option is basically a tilt filter that tips the tonal balance gently. In short, it
emphasizes one end of the spectrum while decreasing the opposite end by the same amount. This approach is different from typical shelving filters, as it alters the frequency response, but without interfering with the phase. By default the monitor is set flat, but the Sound Balance toggle switch can go for either ‘Bright’ or ‘Dark’.
