While your ears are captivated by the Confidence 60’s astonishing power, scale and detail, your eyes will probably be drawn to the single Esotar3 28mm soft-dome tweeter in the middle. Then the twin 15cm MSP midrange drivers with Horizon Surrounds. And, finally to the two 23cm MSP NeoTec Woofers.
The drivers are all new. And they’re all part of the next generation of Dynaudio's innovative DDC (Dynaudio Directivity Control) sound-shaping technology platform. This focuses the sound waves radiating from the speakers into a tight vertical ‘beam’ that avoids reflections from floors and ceilings while maintaining a wide horizontal image. That means a bigger sweet-spot on the couch, a happier audience, and the knowledge that you’re only hearing what the drivers are producing – and not what the room itself is bringing to the party.
The star of the show is the DDC Lens – a machined aluminium waveguide integrated into the precision Compex composite baffle. This ingenious part (the result of hundreds of hours of simulations, prototyping and listening tests) works in conjunction with the baffle shape, the tweeter and the midrange drivers (notice their brand-new Horizon Surround, also part of the system) and the woofers to focus sound waves where they need to go: you.
In fact, everything in the Confidence 60 is designed precisely for that purpose. Even the gasket that decouples the baffle from the cabinet, and the screws that hold everything in place.
