Say hello to the brand-new Contour 20. Everything Dynaudio knows about speaker design in a compact, clean, great-sounding package.
Its sweet-toned Esotar2 soft dome tweeter has been a legend in its own right for years. It’s commonly regarded as one of the world’s best-ever drivers – and because it’s been such a great friend to so many millions of ears (and a key part of Contours past), Dynaudio just had to give it another outing.
The extended-excursion 18cm woofer is brand new. It’s powered by a lightweight aluminium voice-coil and a vented dual-ferrite magnet system, and was created by driver specialists Danny Pasfall Christensen and Andreas Eberhardt Sørensen and their team under acoustic maestro Daniel Emonts.
It's made from Dynaudio MSP – a material they developed themselves, and have been using in their drivers since 1985. MSP gives exactly the right combination of stiffness and damping – which you’ll hear as exactly the right combination of power, finesse and control. Just what a Contour speaker should have. But they’ve taken it further: they’ve varied the diaphragm’s thickness across its surface, which gives even greater control over its sound.
The Dynaudio Contour 20 speakers are on display at Pearl Audio.
