Dynaudio Heritage Special Speakers Dynaudio has launched its new, limited-edition Heritage Special passive stand mounting speakers – handmade from top to bottom, inside and out, at its headquarters in Denmark.
Heritage Special is a tribute to some of Dynaudio’s most legendary speakers – including Crafft, Contour 1, Special Twenty-Five and more. Outwardly it’s affectionately retro; inside, defiantly modern. Initially started as an ‘off-the-radar’ project and developed under top-secret conditions at Dynaudio Labs, they are now ready to greet the world.
Handcrafted cabinets The speaker, limited to 2500 pairs worldwide, has a 19mm-thick MDF cabinet finished in sustainable American Walnut veneer. It’s internally braced for extra rigidity and lined with heavy bitumen to further minimise unwanted resonance.Each piece of veneer (including the thin list strips surrounding the front baffle) is matched to its companions – and those for each speaker are matched to each other – for complete consistency. The cabinet goes through three meticulous sanding and lacquering processes. It takes just over three days to build each one from start to finish.
