Hear the Truth
The Dynaudio LYD 8, flagship of the company’s LYD line, is an ideal nearfield/midfield reference monitor for larger studio control rooms and home hi-fi applications. The technology employed in the LYD series is distilled from Dynaudio’s extensive experience in designing and manufacturing the no-compromise main monitors used in top studios worldwide. The foundation of the LYD 8’s outstanding overall performance is its powerful, accurate low-frequency reproduction. You rely on your monitors to reveal the truth about what you’re recording. Does the lead vocal sit right in your mix? Is there too much bass? Not enough? Free of distortion, coloration, and phase issues that can cloud your judgment, the LYD 8 lets you know exactly what’s going on with your tracks, mixes, and masters. With the Dynaudio LYD 8, you’ll make better recordings.
Superior technology for unerring accuracy
Dynaudio poured their considerable engineering expertise into their LYD series nearfield monitors. Accurate driver control is achieved through a custom ferrite magnet system. For superior linearity, the magnet is surrounded by a large-diameter voice coil. A low-mass aluminum voice coil is used for quick, precise transient response. To ensure the ideal balance between weight, stiffness, and dampening, Dynaudio molds the diaphragm and dust cap in one piece with their proprietary magnesium silicate polymer. The result is a monitor that lives up to the Danish tradition of excellence in speaker design.
Dynaudio knows what they’re doing
At Sweetwater, Dynaudio commands respect. With over three decades of experience building speaker drivers, the Danish company knows what goes into a great monitor speaker. Add to that 20-plus years of producing professional monitors for top studios, and you have a company perspective that few pro-audio manufacturers can match. Dynaudio’s proprietary driver technologies produce monitors that are neutral and uncolored. This silky clarity, in combination with amazing dynamic capabilities, delivers monitors that let you work marathon sessions without ear fatigue — all while producing superior-sounding results.
