Get the unvarnished truth and deliver your mixes exactly as the artist intended. LYD 5, with its low-volume precision, is the ideal complement for any small studio set-up. It uses the same lightweight aluminium voice-coils in its handmade 5in MSP drive-units as our high-end hi-fi speakers, and pairs them with cutting-edge Class-D amplification as well as a 24-bit/96kHz signal path with advanced DSP.
The woofer and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated state-of-the-art Class D amplifier, delivering 50W / 50W of power per monitor. The amp features a 96kHz/24bit signal path and selectable input sensitivity, as well as the same Standby Mode as the original LYD speakers.
Also, like the other LYD monitors, the LYD 5 features Bass Extension, allowing for a choice between the default setting or pushing towards maximum bass or maximum volume. Changes will affect the low-end response, but importantly the linear frequency response remains intact.
The Sound Balance option is basically a tilt filter that tips the tonal balance gently. In short, it emphasizes one end of the spectrum while decreasing the opposite end by the same amount. This approach is different from typical shelving filters, as it alters the frequency response, but without interfering with the phase. By default the monitor is set flat, but the Sound Balance toggle switch can go for either ‘Bright’ or ‘Dark’.
Featuring handmade driver units from the factory in Denmark, all LYD 5 monitors are assembled, finalized and tested before leaving Dynaudio’s warehouse.
