Dynaudio Pro has announced the LYD 48, featuring a three-way speaker design, coupling an eight and a four-inch woofer with a one-inch tweeter, making them well suited for nearfield and midfield monitoring applications.
Dynaudio said each of the woofers and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated 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.
The new three-way monitor 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 the linear frequency response remains intact. The sound balance option is a tilt filter that tips the tonal balance gently. 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.”
The LYD 48 features handmade driver units from the Dynaudio factory in Denmark. All monitors are also assembled, finalized and tested at the factory before leaving the warehouse.
