Dynaudio Special 40
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’s available in two colours, red or grey and this is a stain applied to end grain birch plywood under a thick lacquer. We think that it looks rather good in the flesh and we have a red pair on demonstration.
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 £2500, so I guess this makes them a bargain!
Dynaudio’s Stand 6 seems to be a good match.
