Designed to mitigate listening fatigue for serious audio professionals, the flagship Dynaudio Acoustics Core 59 is a professional 3-way studio monitor well suited for nearfield and midfield applications in high-demand environments.
The Core 59 features a 1" Esotar Pro tweeter, 5" MSP mid-woofer, and a 9" glass-fiber woofer. The Esotar Pro tweeter builds upon the success of the soft-dome tweeter for which Dynaudio has become known. This latest design features an inner dome that sits just behind the diaphragm and optimizes airflow, smooths the frequency response, and eliminates unwanted internal resonances, resulting in outstanding imaging, transient detail, and an effortless high-frequency response.
The 5" mid-woofer utilizes a magnesium silicate polymer (MSP) material, which offers the best combination of lightness, stiffness, and damping, for remarkably fast and authoritative mid-range control. The 9" woofer is made from a glass-fiber former and uses a copper voice coil that's pushed by ceramic magnets to provide more grip on the bottom without sacrificing a deep frequency response. The Core 59 combines the mid-woofer and tweeter into a sealed Orbit baffle, which can rotate 360°, providing multiple orientations without comprise. The integrated Class-D triamplifier delivers 150, 500, and 500 W to the tweeter, midrange, and woofer, which combine for a frequency response of 36 Hz to 31 kHz (-6 dB) and a max SPL of 118 dB (half-space).
The rear panel sports a balanced XLR input as well as an AES/EBU input and output. A word clock BNC input is also provided to ensure the best quality from a digital signal path. The rear panel also features a bass extension switch, digital channel selection for left/right, a sound balance switch with three tilt filter settings, and two position switches with selection for room treatment filters and boundary filter. The Core 59 uses a universal power supply and ships with an IEC power cord.
