Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Dynaudio has re­leased a new Sub 6 sub­woofer with ‘in­tel­li­gent’ dig­i­tal sig­nal pro­cess­ing that comes pre-pro­grammed to in­te­grate per­fectly with main speak­ers from Dynaudio’s range. ‘ Dynaudio’s en­gi­neers painstak­ingly mod­elled the acous­tic char­ac­ter­is­tics of its most pop­u­lar high-end hi-fi speak­ers and cre­ated cus­tom per­for­mance maps for each one,’ said Ge­orge Poutakidis, of BusiSoft, which dis­trib­utes Dynaudio in Aus­tralia. ‘ Us­ing its dis­play and the menu sys­tem built into the Sub 6, own­ers sim­ply se­lect the spe­cific Dynaudio main speak­ers they have in their setup and the Sub 6’s out­put will be matched per­fectly to it, so two-way speak­ers be­come three-ways, and three-way speak­ers seam­lessly be­come four-ways.’

The DSP sys­tem in the Sub 6 is firmware-up­date­able, so when the com­pany re­leases new speak­ers, Dynaudio says it will also re­lease firmware up­dates for the Sub 6, adding new per­for­mance maps for the new mod­els. In ad­di­tion to this fea­ture, the DSP also has para­met­ric equal­i­sa­tion, and three fil­ters to help counter the ef­fects of any room modes, to en­sure the best pos­si­ble per­for­mance. It also has au­to­matic time-de­lay cir­cuitry to en­sure that its out­put ar­rives at the lis­ten­ing po­si­tion at the same time as the out­put from your main speak­ers. ‘ All a user has to do is en­ter the dis­tance from the sub to the speak­ers and the sub will ad­just it­self au­to­mat­i­cally us­ing both time and phase de­lays,’ said Poutakidis.

The Dynaudio Sub 6 has an on-board am­pli­fier rated with an out­put of 500-watts, which drives two newly-de­signed driv­ers whose cones com­bine Dynaudio’s Mag­ne­sium Sil­i­cate Poly­mer (MSP) ma­te­rial with alu­minium and pa­per to pro­vide both drive and two kinds of res­o­nance damp­ing. ‘ Our new MSP+ Hy­brid Drive units are brand-new driv­ers de­signed specif­i­cally for sub­woofer use,’ said Otto Jør­gensen, Prod­uct Man­ager at Dynaudio. ‘ These new driv­ers sit at ei­ther end of the care­fully con­structed sealed en­clo­sure de­sign, which stands wider than it does deep to help it sit more dis­creetly against a wall.’ Avail­able now, the Dynaudio Sub 6 is avail­able in Black Satin and White Satin lac­quer fin­ishes and re­tails for $3,499 (RRP).
