Dynaudio Releases New Focus Series of Loudspeakers


Dynaudio_Focus_Series_Loudspeakers.jpgDanish loudspeaker manufacturer Dynaudio has released an all-new Focus loudspeaker series. The first Dynaudio Focus series debuted in 2005, and soon became Dynaudio's most successful model range. Each new second-generation Focus model has all-new drivers, upgraded crossovers, and an improved cabinet construction.

Dynaudio's latest technologies have been incorporated into the new Focus models: Newly developed drivers with improved voice coil and spider assemblies, stronger magnets, and die-cast aluminum basket frames; soft dome tweeters featuring a new and improved precision coating; and phase-optimized first-order crossover designs.

With the new Precision Coating, the coating is now applied more evenly and more accurately than previously possible. This yields a reportedly smoother sound and ideal radiation over the tweeter's entire frequency spectrum.

The drivers in the new Focus range feature Dynaudio's center magnet system, where the magnet is positioned inside the voice coil, thus allowing for an allegedly larger and more homogenous magnetic field to be utilized. Dynaudio uses aluminum wire for the voice coil, in comparison to the more commonly used and heavier copper alternative, thus yielding a large diameter coil that remains light. The aluminum coil of the new Focus series also features a more heat resistant insulation.

The voice coil former of the new Focus midrange and bass drivers is made of black Kapton, a material that is non-magnetic, temperature stable, and very stiff yet extremely lightweight. Black Kapton yields a much stronger coil former which allows higher power handling.

These midrange and bass drivers in the new Focus models feature Dynaudio's MSP (magnesium silicate polymer) cone, a material that combines low mass, high rigidity, and internal damping properties. Combined with new Ferrite+ magnets and an improved driver suspension featuring a new spider material, the new Focus driver design results in an allegedly precise, incredibly fast and completely controlled woofer movement for accurate music reproduction.

Now shipping, the new Dynaudio Focus series is comprised of the Focus 160 ($2,900/pair) two-way compact monitor, the Focus 260($4,900/pair) two-way floor standing loudspeaker, the Focus 340 ($7,500/pair) three-way floor standing loudspeaker, the Focus 380($9,500/pair) three-way floor standing loudspeaker, and the Focus 210C ($1,800/each) center channel loudspeaker.

Each model is available in a choice or either Walnut, Rosewood, Maple or Black Ash natural wood or Piano Black or Piano White gloss lacquer finish.
