The Dynaudio Contour 30i steps it up a notch from the 20i. Of course, it still treads the same path – one of honesty, transparency and sheer entertainment, but it puts it all in a bigger package.
The Contour family has been totally overhauled under the hood with advanced acoustic technology trickled down from the flagship Confidence range. And the results are plain to hear.
Dynaudio Product Manager - Otto Jørgensen Says
We didn’t do it because we had to, we did it because we wanted to, this is what happens when you leave our engineers alone with a speaker – they can’t help but improve it. We gained so much knowledge during the Confidence project that we simply had to share it with Contour. And we’re absolutely thrilled with the results.

Features - What’s new?
Taking it from the top, the brand-new Esotar 2i tweeter on all models gains the ingenious Hexis resonance-defeating inner dome, plus a new, larger rear chamber. Together they reduce distortion and gives a flatter frequency response.
The Contour 30i woofer gains an updated Nomex spider. It’s the same structural design as the 2016 Contour (with varying-width corrugations for finer excursion control), but the new material simply sounds better – the result of many hours of listening in Dynaudio Labs.
The Contour 30i has updated crossovers. And, because of the driver tweaks providing an inherently flat frequency response, it means Dynaudio has been able to remove the impedance correction circuitry for an even simpler board.
Even the internal damping is brand-new – using lessons learned from Evoke and Confidence.
And, of course, the whole range was extensively optimised in Dynaudio’s world-leading Jupiter measuring facility before being subjected to countless hours of listening by the experts in Dynaudio Labs.
Finally, the finishes have been improved. The range isavailable in three finish variants, all with enhanced surface quality.
