The Dynaudio Emit 30 - Floorstanding Speaker is a compact two-and-a-half-way speaker, perfect for larger stereo systems or a smaller multi-channel home cinema system in medium to large rooms.
The Emit 30 uses 14cm MSP woofers similar to those used in the Evoke series – this time doubled-up in each speaker for more low-frequency muscle, plus midrange clarity and punch. MSP stands for Magnesium Silicate Polymer. It’s a material that Dynaudio has developed in-house for their woofer cones, and have used for decades, including on their high-end models. MSP provides precisely the right combination of weight, stiffness and damping to deliver control and outright power exactly where it’s needed.
Premium Woofer Technology
The cones are moulded in one piece and as such doesn't use a separate glued dust-cap. The little balance ribs around the edge of the centre are bonded directly to the voice-coil behind it, making the whole motor assembly one solid piece. Using fewer moving parts gave the engineers finer control over how the speaker moves – which, in turn, means fine control over how it performs. You’ll hear it as strong, tight bass and startlingly clear vocals, guitars and more.
Each woofer is powered by a dual-stacked strontium carbonite Ferrite+ ceramic magnet system. Using two magnets means you are able to more effectively direct where the magnetic energy goes. A lesson learned during the development of the award-winning Special Forty anniversary series.
The target for all that flux is the voice-coil. Aluminium windings are used in the Emit 30. Aluminium is light (which minimises inertia on the cone’s back-and-forth movement), and because it’s lighter than copper wire, it means more windings can be packed on to the two-layer glass-fibre former. More windings equals more power, and greater control over fine movement. The aluminium wire is also coated in a very thin copper coating to further increase the control the amplifier has on the voice-coil.
High-Performance Cerotar Tweeter
While the twin 14cm mid/bass units deal with the midrange and bass, the upper frequencies are handled by the tweeter. Emit might be an ‘entry-level’ speaker, but certainly any old unit hasn't beenused. Witness the incredible Cerotar tweeter (the same used in the Evoke). It’s based on the Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the Esotar Pro found in the Dynaudio Core studio reference speakers, and must be heard to be believed.
The 28mm coated soft-dome diaphragm is backed up by the clever Hexis inner dome. The playing surface has been specifically engineered to produce ultra-clear, ultra-detailed high-frequencies without breakup (even at high volumes), while the Hexis smooths the airflow behind it to reduces unwanted resonances. An aluminium voice-coil and airflow magnet system provide the power. Cerotar is designed for high performance without listener fatigue – perfect if you’re given to long listening sessions.
The bass-port on the back panel has dual flares (one inside; one outside), and has been tuned to minimise unwanted ‘chuffing’. It’s supplied with foam inserts that can be used to optimise performance for the speaker’s position relative to the wall.
The Emit 30’s cabinets are made from 18mm MDF to provide a solid, stable platform for the drivers to do their work. They’re internally damped with polyester fibre, measured down to the gram for exactly the right amount of resonance suppression.
On the outside, you can choose from three custom laminate finishes: Black, White or Walnut. They’ve been chosen to complement any room, in any configuration (so if you’re mixing and matching Emit speakers in a home cinema system, you can make them stand out or blend in as you want).
