Dynaudio PRO has announced its latest addition to the LYD studio monitor range. The new LYD 48 features a 3-way speaker design, coupling an 8" and a 4" woofer with a 1" tweeter, making them well suited for nearfield as well as midfield monitor applications. It will be available as white and black, as the original LYD range, but also in a classic all-black version.

Sebastian Rodens, Product Manager for Dynaudio's PRO division, told us, "We are very excited to now add a bigger brother to the LYD range. This new 3-way monitor shares many of the same benefits as the original LYD range, including significant low-volume precision. Obviously, the new 3-way is even more powerful and brings audio precision to your passion regardless of whether you produce electronic music, rock, jazz, classical or any other genre – and at any listening volume."

Here's more details direct from Dynaudio...

Each of the woofers and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated state-of-the-art Class D amplifier, delivering 80W / 50W / 50W of power per monitor. The amp features a 96kHz/24bit signal path and selectable input sensitivity, as well as the same Standby Mode as the original LYD speakers.

Also, like the other LYD monitors, the new 3-way version features Bass Extension, allowing for a choice between the default setting or pushing towards maximum bass or maximum volume. Changes will affect the low-end response, but importantly the linear frequency response remains intact.

The Sound Balance option is basically a tilt filter that tips the tonal balance gently. In short, it emphasizes one end of the spectrum while decreasing the opposite end by the same amount. This approach is different from typical shelving filters, as it alters the frequency response, but without interfering with the phase. By default the monitor is set flat, but the Sound Balance toggle switch can go for either 'Bright' or 'Dark'.

Developed, Designed & Made in Denmark
As all Dynaudio speakers, the LYD 48 was conceived, born and raised entirely at Dynaudio's facilities in Skanderborg, Denmark. Featuring handmade driver units from the factory in Denmark, all LYD 48 monitors are also assembled, finalized and tested here before leaving the warehouse.

Sebastian Rodens elaborates: "We have equipped music production studios all over the world for decades. From legendary recording facilities like Air Studios and Avatar Studios to bedroom studios, the characteristic looks and not least transparent sound of our speakers have conquered studio real estate and gained a wide and loyal user base. We like to think that our dedication to one type of product and keeping utmost control every step of the way from idea to finalized product in-house at the Danish headquarters plays a part in having achieved this."
