The Supernait 3 added a brawny, exciting, thrust to the Dynaudio Confidence 50s, but I favored the more refined yet powerful and dimensional sound of the Tidal/Qualiton combo. It also looks very trippy. And if DSP – Scottish or German? NIN and Tool lovers, Iâm talkinâ to YOU.Â, Yeah, the C 50s practically thrive on that kinda stuff.Â. Cue review communications. Less surprising was the bass.Â, With the low end seeming to change every few days, I had to be patient and wait until things below 100hz stabilized sufficiently to get the all-important distance from the back wall nailed down.Â. Sometimes I wanted them to sound even larger!Â, This was quite enjoyable on everything I listened to. How invested I am in that fuzzy memory being better or worse, has a strong influence on how the New and Different will be judged. It is not easy to describe how exactly this happens, because it is not enough to reduce this question of character to individual disciplines, i.e. Loudspeakers by Danish manufacturer Dynaudio were featured in two rooms; both demonstrated exactly how clearly, and authoritatively precise, their speakers could sound when driven by amplifiers from the German manufacturer Octave. On âThe Last Goodbye,â the white-ish high end became colorized in an aforementioned way, and the low mids and bass had more power and clearer separation than Iâve ever heard. So maybe itâs an attribute of the Tidal circuitry, but the Esotar 3 tweeter certainly has the resolution to reveal this.Â Even with that slight dip around 1-2K, I could find no major faults with the Dynaudio Confidence 50’s mids.

Blasting Joy Division’s “She’s Lost Control,” (the 12-inch version), I once again forget that the Dynaudio Confidence C1 II speakers are small in stature, because these stand-mount speakers move serious air. Imagine a colorized version of a black and white movie. What the Danes had before achieved by means of a tweeter pair smartly driven by the crossover, is now done by a "waveguide" that is perfectly integrated into the baffle made of "Compex", which is supposed to combine the stability of metal with the damping of MDF. The Octave sounded great with the Dynaudio Confidence 50s but was a tad too forward, although it was a beautiful tube forwardness.Â, About this time I received the new preamplifier offering from Tidal Audio, their Prisma. The Confidence 50’s brand-new MSP midrange drivers are a big departure from previous Dynaudio designs. In the Dynaudio literature, there is a lot of info about the new Esotar 3 tweeter used in the latest Confidence line. Previously, a ferrite type had been used.

The legend continues. They use a radical surround design – the Horizon – that follows the cone’s shape right to the edge of the driver. I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying large, floor-standing, top o’ the line speaker systems. However, on top of that, they also managed to convey the ensemble's subliminal glow and pure joy of playing. Confidence 30 (€19,000) is a medium-sized three-way floorstander with DDC technology on board. I Couldn’t help notice that the speakers were connected in reverse. One of the reasons I spent a lot of time trying different components was to fine-tune this area to keep all the size, depth, and punch while tightening up any very slight amount of smear. It uses two 18cm woofers with neodymium magnets, one 15cm midrange (also with a neodymium magnet) and one Esotar3 tweeter with the DDC Lens. I canât say the improvement with the sharp spiked metal cone feet was ultra-dramatic. The drivers, crossovers, baffles, and cabinetry are new in all current Confidence line speakers.

Posted on July 19, 2020 by Dave McNair in Loudspeakers // 2 Comments. In my room, the C 50s didnât do that.Â What they DID do is present a very deep picture of musical information that was almost completely contained within the width of the speakerâs location.

While the previous Confidence series was rather unusually styled, it was widely accepted for its performance and for displaying generous dollops of Dynaudio… Letâs just say when I went back to the QLNs, I got back the midrange and imaging I love but missed some of the C 50’s sonic girth. Brand-new Esotar3 tweeter. The Esotar3 (r.m. The Dane effortlessly establishes a connection between the listener and the slightly melancholic piece, which is something the more distanced predecessors Confidence C2 and C4 could'nt do quite as well.
