The Dynaudio Emit 10 is a compact standmount speaker that utilises technology from the Flagship Dynaudio Confidence, Contour i and Evoke series. It has been designed and perfected to be the ideal model for smaller rooms and for use in a home cinema system.
Designed and engineered at Dynaudio's HQ in Denmark, the Emit 10 has been developed and crafted by the same people behind their award-winning high-end models.
Delving into the details, you’ll find a 14cm MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) mid-bass unit. MSP is a material that Dynaudio have developed themselves, and have been using for decades. It provides exactly the right mixture of weight, stiffness and damping ability for precise control without losing power, which is essential when a driver is reproducing both low-bass and crucial midrange frequencies.
The Emit 10 has a Mid / Bass driver that has been gifted from the Esotec+ in the Evoke series, and sports an all-new surround and double magnet system for extended throw (meaning the cone can move back and forth more). This addition improves the frequency response and dynamics at lower frequencies, while retaining high definition in the midrange. That means you’ll hear what you want from a powerful rhythm section, plus guitars, vocals and more – all without distortion at louder volumes.
You’ll perhaps notice that the dust-cap isn’t simply glued on. It’s part of the playing surface of the cone. The little dashed line around its edge is bonded directly to the 38mm voice-coil behind it. It’s an extremely strong connection with the motor, which means more of the coil’s motion energy is transferred to the diaphragm.
Behind the Cone
The voice-coil itself is made of copper-clad aluminium wire. Aluminium is light, which gives the driver a responsiveness you might not find elsewhere, while the copper coating increases conductivity for more power. In combination it enhances the detail and punch that can be acheived.
A high-quality double ferrite magnet system provides the power. It’s a stacked design to keep it compact, but it serves another purpose: using two magnets, Dynaudio's engineers were able to control the magnetic flux, directing it back to the voice-coil, where it’s needed the most.
High-Quality Cerotar Tweeter
The Cerotar tweeter is exactly what you’ll find in Evoke. It’s a 28mm fabric soft-dome unit with Dynaudio's special DSR (Dynaudio Secret Recipe!) coating. Fabric soft-dome tweeters are used because they can convey all the detail and openness you could wish to hear from your recordings without subjecting you to unwanted fatigue over longer listening sessions. These are speakers you can listen to late into the night.
Behind the dome is the enigma that is the Hexis device. It’s an ingenious dimpled inner dome that sits directly behind the playing surface and shapes airflow to optimise the frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. That means the diaphragm can move more precisely, so you’ll hear even more detail.
Emit 10’s crossover was designed by the same engineers that worked on the Heritage Special and Dynaudio's Core range of professional studio reference systems. It uses a first-order design for the tweeter and a second-order topology for the mid/bass driver.
Round the back, you’ll see the bass-reflex port. It’s a dual-flared design to reduce air turbulence and minimise unwanted ‘chuffing’, especially with deep notes. Dynaudio even tuned the internal damping material (which they do claim is possible). It’s measured down to the gram for the perfect combination of damping and openness.
