Dynaudio Joins The CEDIA Designer Database

by User Not Found | Mar 08, 2019

Dynaudio has reinforced its commitment to the CI and AV sectors by joining The CEDIA Designer’s (TCD) global cloud-based design-software database. Using TCD, integrators can now begin designing high-render-channel-count immersive home cinemas or simpler media roomsusing Dynaudio’s new Custom Studio range of architectural speakers. 

Currently available on The CEDIA Designer database are Dynaudio’s hi fi speaker ranges Emit and Contour alongside their custom install speakers including the Cinema Master 60 reference LCR speaker, the Studio series architectural range and the Sub3 and Sub6 active subwoofers. These be supplemented by several new product launches already previewed at ISE 2019, giving numerous options for integrators at several price and performance levels.

The CM60 is based on Dynaudio’s very highest performance professional studio monitors. Designed for continuous high-power operation the CM60 has a 22hz – 21khz frequency response and is capable of SPL levels of 135db without compression or distortion. Each channel combines ferrofluid cooled twin 12” bass drivers, twin 6” mid-range drivers and a 1” Esotec tweeter to give detailed and dynamic performance.

The Studio series modular LCR speaker is made up of the LCR65W dual 6.5” woofer unit and the LCRMT 4” midrange and 1” soft dome tweeter unit respectively. These can be combined or mounted individually for several configurations, making them ideal for both media rooms and home theatres. The option to mount the LCR65W and LCRMT separately means you can avoid wall studs when mounting the centre channel horizontally, or you can match the width of the TV for nicer aesthetic. They can also be combined and used in a vertical array for home theatre setups in combinations with of one or two LCR65W per channel, allowing you to scale the system size depending on the room requirements.

Also in the Studio range are three in-ceiling speakers, which come in 6.5in, 6.5in dual-voice-coil and 8in variants. These all have woofers angled at 18 degrees, as well as adjustable tweeters, allowing them to be accurately directed to the listening area for better sound-staging and stereo imaging. There are also two-way in-wall speakers in 6.5in and 8in woofer sizes.

“At Dynaudio we want listeners to experience music or movies the way the artists and producers intended. We engineer products which deliver that ethos, but even the best speakers need to be paired with the right electronics and a good listening environment. That’s why we’re so pleased to have partnered with The CEDIA Designer. It also makes the integrator’s lives so much simpler by helping them provide a polished, bespoke proposal to their client in a fraction of the time it could otherwise take,” says Peter Gibb, CI Business Development Manager EMEA.
