The ideal companion to Dynaudio's upright Contours. The Contour 25Ci seamlessly integrates for an awesome surround-sound performance
It’s been said that sound accounts for as much as 80 per cent of the moviegoing experience. And we can’t argue with that (musicals, especially, don’t have quite the same impact with the volume set to zero).
That’s why Dynaudio created the Contour 25Ci centre-channel. Mix and match it with a combination of Contour 20i, 30i and 60i for a seamlessly integrated multichannel system – a system on which you know you’ll be able to enjoy stereo music as much as you will a teeth-rattling blockbuster.

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 25Ci 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 25Ci 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.
