Dynaudio’s ‘Music’ app
The app is simple to navigate and very clear, being iPhone sized, simply blowing up larger for tablet display. As detailed above it gets you set up through a friendly ‘chat’-style interaction, then once you’re up and running it offers a music section (Tidal linked, as mentioned, plus internet radio), a link through to your Spotify app, and also settings for your speakers. From this screen (1) you can select one of three EQ profiles — Music, Movie, or Speech (there’s no ‘flat’ or ‘off’ option) . And you can adjust bass and treble in another radical but delightful bit of graphic work, where you shift the screen up/ down for treble, left/right for bass (see 2), rather than adjusting boring old sliders. Volume works the same way, superimposed over the source information (see 3).
Also here is the RoomAdapt for positioning (see main copy), but also NoiseAdapt (4), which it says adjusts for the ambient noise level, adjusting its dynamic range over multiple frequency bands. While in our circumstances neither of these Adapt options made any audible difference, we assume that’s because we’d given the Music 7 premium positioning and a nice quiet music room in the first place! — so no need for it to compensate. As such our preference was to keep these options off, and bass/treble in their zero position under the Music EQ throughout our listening, at least until we tried the Music 7 later with the TV, when we started experimenting with the ‘Movie’ EQ option.
