Pro Monitoring for the Home Studio

Monitoring in an untreated environment is never ideal. But the Dynaudio LYD series is making clean sound for the home or project studio a reality. Dual Class D power amps feed a total of 130 watts into a powerful 8" driver (80W) and smooth soft-dome tweeter (50W) for accurate sound reproduction. And three switches make it quick to find your room's best sound. First, a Position switch filters out reflective interference when placed within 20" of a wall. Next, a Sound Balance selector increases or reduces brightness depending on your room's character - great for moving between rooms with treated and bare walls. And finally, a three-way Bass Extension switch gives you control of your Dynaudio LYD-8's low end in 10Hz increments.

Very happy with these and glad I took the risk. Back to listening…

Just got my LYD-8s today from Sweetwater. Took a month but they made it! First response is WOW. Full range. Absolutely clear across the whole thing. Low frequency accuracy is astonishing and haven't heard something so clear down there in a long time. Mid range is classic Dynaudio: very present and transparent. Easy to hear what is going on there. The high end seems like it could be a little fatiguing, but will try out the Dark vs Neutral setting to hear if that helps. I extended the low frequency response to the lowest setting, sacrificing amplitude for freq. response. I still had to put the sensitivity down to the -6dB position, so no issue there for me. And changing that setting is what made the low end super clear. Now for one of the big reasons I bought these… they claimed to have an even freq. response even at low volumes. I was skeptical, but wow it delivers. At very low volumes, the bass and mid range still are very present and very clear and easy to hear. I could see myself working at low volumes on these quite happily with great results. The only thing I don't like about these is how clearly they point out bad mixes! Some of mine in particular! Very happy with these and glad I took the risk. Back to listening…
