The Dynaudio Focus 30 Active Floorstanding Speakers gives you access to everything that’s ever been recorded and put online. These smaller size floorstanding speakers are futureproofed with streaming technology and connectivity to bring a world of audiophile-quality music directly to your living room.
With Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Roon, Bluetooth and local network connectivity on board (and with the capability for even more), Focus 30 will accept streaming audio from any compatible device. That could be a laptop, a phone, a tablet, a network-attached storage device… even a smart watch.
Connect Existing Equipment.
If you have a bunch of equipment from your previous system, you can keep using it. A full set of digital and analogue connections on the rear panel means you can use your CD player or turntable alongside Focus 30’s built-in streaming smarts.
Home Cinema Users Covered too.
If you don’t want the bulk of a full AV receiver, equipment rack and cabling in your living room (maybe you’d like to have something a little more attractive under your TV – like a bookshelf, or your dog), Focus 30 has you covered.
Its built-in WiSA technology connects wirelessly to a compatible TV or USB dongle to bring its audio seamlessly to your speakers.
Behind the Music
The Dynaudio Focus 30 has more than 40 years of acoustic expertise to back-up its technological wizardry.
Its drivers are classic Dynaudio: a Cerotar soft-dome tweeter with the ingenious resonance-defeating, frequency-smoothing, fatigue-busting Hexis device – plus twin 14cm MSP Esotec+ mid/bass units.
The Cerotar tweeter is based on the range-topping Esotar 3 you’ll find in the Confidence range. It uses a strontium carbonate Ferrite+ magnet system, optimised for airflow, to increase sensitivity. In practice that means clear, sweet, detailed treble that’s easy to listen to… perfect for listening late into the night.
Esotec+ Mid / Bass Units
The Esotec+ mid/bass units are made from MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer), a material developed by Dynaudio, which has been refined and used for four decades. It provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping for incredible control over midrange and low frequencies.
Couple that with a lightweight aluminium voice-coil (for more accuracy, control and finesse) and an improved magnet system that generates more driver excursion (for lower, punchier bass and more midrange clarity) and you’ve a formula for addictive, toe-tapping performance.
And the closed-box cabinet design lets us take full advantage of the powerful amplification and DSP (digital signal processing) on board – marrying the extreme low-frequencies, the expressive midrange and soaring treble in exciting new ways.
Brains and Brawn
The Dynaudio Focus 30 is active, which means each individual driver is powered by its own amplifier. There are three amps in each speaker – each one tailored to the driver it’s paired with. It means we can zero in on that particular driver’s strengths, bringing them out without needing to compromise for other frequencies. The tweeter has a 110W amp, and each mid/bass driver has its own 280W powerhouse.
As with Dynaudio's pro speakers, you can tell Focus 30 where it’s sitting in your room (near a wall, in a corner or in free space) via a simple switch in the companion Dynaudio app and it will optimise itself to sound its best in that position. There’s even optional Dirac Live integration for a deep-dive into calibration – and completely customised results.
The speakers even know when they’re wearing a magnetic grille or are standing in their birthday suit – and they’ll optimise themselves accordingly. And they’re constantly keeping an ear out for the kind of volume levels that could cause damage to the drivers and amp; a custom sliding high-pass filter rolls off the bass at high volume to keep everything balanced.
In practice, that means you get deeper bass at lower volume levels – and you can push the speakers louder overall (your neighbours can thank you later).
