Dynaudio Special Forty Speakers - Audio T Recommends
Dynaudio Special Forty Speakers - Audio T Recommends The Special Forty is classic Dynaudio: all the craftsmanship, attention to detail and total love of authentic sound you’ve come to expect. It’s the connoisseur’s choice – a simple pair of passive hi-fi speakers. But it isn’t about looking back, misty-eyed, at past glories and leaving it at that. It’s about using those glories as a platform from which to launch their next set of breakthroughs. That’s why it has one of their classic first-order crossover designs, incorporating the unique Phase Alignment and Impedance Alignment technologies. The crossover expertly marshals the input signal between the woofer and the tweeter – so each driver gets only the frequencies it’s supposed to, and can perform at its very best. Its specially selected components handle the impedance optimisation and, because both drivers have extended frequency ranges for even better overlap and integration, that performance borders on the mesmerising. The Special Forty uses the time honoured proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) material for its main driver. MSP delivers precisely the right combination of rigidity, damping and stability for the most faithful sound reproduction. Unlike other cone materials, it doesn’t change over time – so your Special Forty speakers will still be singing just as sweetly come their next anniversary.
