Dynaudio DM 2/6 Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker Reviews What hi fi? Sound and Vision - 5 Stars - Best Stereo Speakers £300-£600 Awards 2010 A powerful and authoritative sound for such a small speaker; goes loud; well made. Dynaudio’s entry-level model is a great all-rounder – just make sure the rest of your set-up is up to the task. It goes louder than you'd expect for a box of this size and isn't afraid of high bass levels at those extended volumes, either. Play the likes of Tinchy Stryder or Lady Gaga at party levels and these baby Dynaudios will shine. That's not where the good news ends. Like its much-admired big brother, the DM 2/7, these monitors are fine all-rounders. Tonally, they're well judged with just the right balance between highs and lows to make things sound even. Detail levels are also good, the speakers delivering enough insight to make even a complex piece of music such as Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians make sense. Add strong dynamics, punch and a decent sense of timing to the plus points and you have a strong rival for the likes of the class-leading EB Acoustics EB1s. Audio Video 2Day If you look at the price tag, it amazes me what these small monitors can do. ... voice sounds lifelike, and the relaxing atmosphere meant by this number is present. If a speaker manages to give tranquillity, it's already very positive. Even when cranking up the volume, it shows no signs of aggressiveness. They are all-round speakers, who shine with voices and classical instruments. The bass line is solid and pretty deep, especially for such a small cabinet. They are a Recommended Buy because for a small budget you get a speaker that is not fatiguing, reproduces classical instruments correctly and manages to produce a sound larger than mini-speakers. High Fidelity (via 6 Moons) - April 2010 One could call the DM 2/6 a modern interpretation of a legend, with wider frequency response, higher sensitivity and a much lower crossover point. ... if you compared a few competing monitors in this price range, you’d single out the Dynaudio for being warmest. They also offer a far bigger sound that size would predict. Even though these boxes cost less than my power cords, saxophone and trumpet caused chills down my spine. At once I also noticed excellent colors. Timbres were developed over a wide range of shades. An essential part of such a coherent presentation was surely due to the high-quality treble. Only KEF’s fantastic Uni-Q system offered the same quality treble but theirs wasn't as well integrated. The DM 2/6 tweeters were potent in a rich way. If I were to describe the sound of these Dynaudios in a nutshell, I’d say that their tonal balance was moved towards the lower midrange. They don't sound heavy or hooded but the designer's main focus was taking care of a proper Vocals – yes, vocals with a capital V. Because that's exactly what they achieved. Great dynamics were a strength. So were defined punchy attacks. Those weren’t brutal but rather, slightly rounded yet powerful, confident and very well articulated. Thanks to that, Jazz wasn't the only kind of music these minis did well. The DM 2/6s also cottoned to electronica, even Tool.

Founded over 30 years ago, when a group of engineers in Skander borg, Denmark who shared the passion for music came to the mutual conclusion that even the best loudspeakers available at the time were incapable of playing music without colouration. Phase shifts, propagation errors, distortion and poor transient response were clearly measurable and audible with virtually all loudspeakers. From that date, Dynaudio has been dedicated to Authentic Fidelity, ambitiously setting forth to create a completely new and modern generation of loudspeakers based on their dedicated ground-breaking research. Their efforts over this time have resulted in innovative and technologically advanced developments that are at the foundation of Dynaudio’s unparalleled performance. Innovations such as Dynaudio Directivity Control (DDC) technology have established Dynaudio loudspeakers as a sound quality reference worldwide, and over the years many different Dynaudio models have become audiophile classics: True loudspeaker legends for true music lovers.
