Dynaudio Updates Contour Loudspeaker Lineup

The last time Dynaudio updated its mid-range Contour speaker lineup was back in 2016. Since then, the company has launched a retooled version of its high-end Confidence series that uses all-new drivers and revamped baffle design, along with updated cabinets and crossovers. Some tech from that effort has trickled down into Dynaudio’s just-announced Contour i series speakers, which consists of the Contour 20i bookshelf ($5,250/pair), Contour 30i ($8,250/pair) and Contour 60i towers ($10,750/pair), and Contour 25Ci center channel ($3,750 each).

The changes Dynaudio has introduced with its “i” models are topped off by a new Esotar 2i tweeter with a “Hexis resonance-defeating inner dome, plus a new, larger rear chamber.” According the company’s release, both of these updates serve to “reduce distortion and provide a flatter frequency response.”

Woofers on the 20i, 30i and 25Ci models feature a Nomex spider that uses a new material which, in Dynaudio’s estimation, “simply sounds better.” The company’s release further states that the Contour 60i tower uses redesigned woofers “with a larger magnet system, an updated voice-coil design, and a glass-fibre voice-coil former, as first used in the new Confidence range and the Dynaudio Sub 6 subwoofer.”

What else is new in the Countour i line? Improved Walnut, Grey Oak High Gloss, and Black High Gloss finishes that are available for each speaker.

The Contour i speakers are expected to arrive in the U.S. by August. For more info check out Dynaudio’s website.

Hmm, no wonder so many Contours have shown up on the used market in the last month or so. I do wonder just how different or better they will sound than the current iteration.

Some good deals from dealers on new one's as well. Always liked the sound of their stuff.
