Hi, longtime Dynaudio fan although I never owned one of their speakers, mainly cause I focus on their top models that I can't afford. I discovered the brand in the 90's from their studio monitors and if I ever buy one of their speakers it will probably be an active speaker for home use. I have my current speakers (2.5 way) for ten years, at some point I'd like to replace them with a proper 3 way with larger drivers than 6.5". The Core 59 is one of the speakers I'm considering, a bargain compared to the Contour & Confidence floorstanding models and being an active is an advantage for me.
A few random thoughts:
I prefer the aesthetics in the current Confidence series from the previous, I found this photo online that showcases the difference. The curved front in the tweeter area is a work of art, congrats to the design team.
I really like the thin Confidence shape, it sets them apart from most other speakers but I wish they offered the Gray Oak color in the Confidence line, it's my favorite. I'm not one who will turn down a speaker for it's color but it would be nice to offer different colors (not for a big upcharge though) in their studio lines. It's great the white color in the LYDs costs the same as the black one. ATC & PMC are two brands that offer several color options (wood veneers) for their studio monitors.
Here's the Gray Oak color
I'm curious about the Midnight color, is it purple or blue? The Dynaudio site doesn't help much, I wish they offered high resolution photos of their speakers. I tried several other other sites online but I they are all using the same photos, haven't found one from an audio show.
Anyone knows why the Evidence line was discontinued, any Evidence owners here? Very impressive speakers, Dynaudio currently only offers the M5P in their studio line, I hope it will continue to be offered even though I realize the cost is prohibited from most people. I don't know if they have been posted before, I discovered recently a Vietnamese shop with nice videos. I don't how they record their videos but Dynaudios (and their room) sounds great through my speakers!
