Speakers  Wireless  High-end  Bluetooth 

[#pageName]

Dynaudio has introduced Music, a four-strong range of lifestyle wireless Bluetooth speakers. Cleverly, all can adapt to any room or position, and automatically adjust for any ambient noise levels. Room Adapt uses DSP to sense where the speaker has been placed, be it against a wall, in a corner, or free-standing and optimises performance.

They also offer Music Now, personalised playlists based only the metadata of music users play. The accompanying free app (iOS and Android) uses a proprietary algorithm to learn users’ musical tastes and play automatically generated playlists, with one touch of a button on the speaker. The speaker connects to popular music-streaming services, including TIDAL and Spotify. Each Music speaker has five presets which can be filled with anything accessible from the app. This could be Music Now playlists from multiple user profiles, internet radio stations, TIDAL albums, artists or Spotify playlists. TIDAL content can be accessed straight from the app, while Spotify can be added to presets from the 'Now Playing' screen.

There are four active speakers in the range. All use Dynaudio’s proprietary MSP cone material in their woofers and midrange drivers, with soft-dome tweeters based on Dynaudio’s high-end speakers. Each driver has a dedicated class-D amplifier.

The Music 1 (which retails for £450) is both battery- and mains-powered. It has one 4-inch woofer and a 1-inch tweeter. Total power is 80W. The larger Music 3 (£575) is also battery- and mains-powered. It has one 5-inch woofer and two tweeters. Total power is quoted at 120W. The battery in each lasts up to eight hours.

The mains-powered Music 5 (£700) has one 5-inch woofer, two 3-inch midrange drivers and two tweeters, with an output of 250W.

Top of the range is the Music 7 (£875). With two 5-inch woofers, two 3-inch midrange drivers and two tweeters, it’s rated at 300W. This model include HDMI with ARC amongst it’s inputs so can function as a soundbar in addition to audio-only duties. Integrators should note that the Music 5 and Music 7 can be wall-mounted using a dedicated steel wall-bracket.

All models stream via Wi-Fi, Spotify Connect, aptX Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay, and can access DLNA devices. Multiroom support enables up to six speakers can be connected at a time, and arranged into groups.

There’s a choice of Light Grey, Dark Grey, Red and Blue cloth finishes, produced by Danish textile house Gabriel. The front grille cloths on the Music 5 and Music 7 are interchangeable.
