Description

Celebrating 40 years of existence, Dynaudio have done what they’ve done at at key moments in the past and thrown all their latest tech into a ‘celebration’ product. The Special 40 is, as the name suggests, genuinely special.

It was also astonishingly successful and, with the original run of grey or red edge grain veneer cabinets exhausted, they have come up with two new unique finishes.

Sound quality was a real surprise. All the more so because we were impressed with them when we thought they cost around £4000. Turns out that they are quite a lot less (£2699), so I guess this makes them a bargain!

Dynaudio’s Stand 6 seems to be a good match. The SolidSteel SS6 stands are really good with them.

The new finishes, Ebony Wave or Black Vine look very striking. Our initial demonstration pair are in Ebony Wave but the Black Vine looks amazing in the pictures. Due summer 2020.
