Dynaudio’s ‘Mu­sic’ app

Sound+Image - - Test -

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.
