Dynaudio Evidence Platinum Loudspeakers
Analogue Seduction are proud to have been appointed the exclusive UK dealer for the Platinum Evidence loudspeaker. Now on demonstration in our Peterborough showroom. Come and listen to what we believe to be the finest loudspeaker we have ever heard.
Before we start, we just want to say this: Evidence isn’t a ‘luxury’ speaker. It doesn’t have gold-plated screws or endangered wood inlays, and it doesn’t make boastful (and meaningless) claims about the ethereal nature of sound.
It’s simply the best way to hear your music.
Evidence Platinum encompasses all the values and ambitions we had when we started Dynaudio in 1977 – to reproduce music without colouration, effects or distortion, so you can hear it unvarnished: the way it was meant to be heard.
Each speaker is handcrafted to near-impossible standards in our factory in Denmark – overseen by experts in furniture polishing, acoustics, materials science (the people who handle the proprietary Magnesium Silicate Polymer material we use for our drivers and the precision-coating we put on our soft-dome tweeters), woodworking, CNC machining and more. And it doesn’t leave us until it’s perfect.
Dynaudio Directivity Control
Underpinning the sound is advanced Dynaudio Directivity Control (DDC) – which dramatically reduces the effect your room has on the speakers by up to 75%. It works using precisely positioned dual woofers, midrange drive units – and, of course, our legendary Esotar2 tweeters – all precision-matched in their arrays, and mirrored up the length of the hyper-stable 4cm-thick machined aluminium baffle.
Behind the drivers is an advanced crossover design, updated wiring and components and ultra-sophisticated bracing. Even the screws we use are optimised for the concept. The crossover is housed in its own compartment to isolate it from any unwanted vibrations and provide an optimised thermal and mechanical environment for its high-grade components. It’s also ventilated at the back to keep its operating temperature within the super-strict tolerances our engineers have laid out (they like setting themselves challenges like that… and then beating them).
Why use four woofers, housed in two separate cabinets? Because they deliver a more even spread of lower frequencies in the room – something you wouldn’t realise with a single, large subwoofer. Not only that, you still get the power of a larger driver, but with it comes the control and precision you can only achieve with smaller drivers.
The Esotar2 tweeter
We’ve been perfecting our soft-dome tweeters for the best part of 40 years – so, as you might imagine, we’ve become pretty good at it.
The Esotar2 is the culmination of all that research. Its precision coating means its frequency response can easily top 25,000Hz without distorting, without delivering unwanted resonances, and without letting its transient response waver or compress.
And because there’s a lot of airflow in a tweeter (even if it is a really small piece of equipment), we’ve applied aerodynamic principles to its design, too. Its magnet assembly is shaped and damped to absorb as much rear energy as possible – which translates to incredible dynamics and purity.
Evidence Platinum: pure craftsmanship; pure music.
"Twelve years ago we defined the world gold standard for authentic musical reproduction with the legendary Dynaudio Evidence Master. Now, with twelve more years of R+D, experience and updated driver technology, we’re upgrading to platinum standard."
-Wilfried Ehrenholz, engineer and founder, with the company since 1976.
“Dynaudio’s Evidence: The world’s best speaker?”
"Regardless of your wallet's comfort level, I recommend strongly that you audition the Dynaudio Evidences when shopping for speakers. Their fit'n'finish must be seen, and their big, tall soundstage has to be heard to appreciate how high a flagship speaker's reach for the stars can be. Of course, if your Internet company has just gone public and you simply must own a flagship speaker, look no further than the Evidence.”
-Larry Greenhill (Stereophile)
“…a loudspeaker so overwhelming like I've never experienced before."
