Dynaudio Core 47– Trust is something that’s earned in this industry and Core 47 is ready to earn yours by giving you the most accurate reproduction that the latest technology and more than 40 years of expertise can provide. And when we say ‘accurate’, we really mean it: all Core monitors are calibrated to within a reference of 0.2dB at our factory in Denmark. You can install 100 and they’ll all perform to the same high standard.
Core 47 is the mid-size model of our flagship professional reference monitor series. Our engineers codenamed it ‘Bulldog’. You’ll know why when you fire it up.
This compact three-way monitor features an eyebrow-raising 500W + 500W + 150W of Class-D power from Pascal amplification, as well as sophisticated digital signal processing and a flat bass response down to 44Hz at -3dB, and 37Hz at -6dB with a gentle roll-off. And it reaches all the way up to 31kHz – never let it be said monitoring can’t give you a real high.
It’s a serious system designed for serious audio professionals. Core 47 has been made for the highest-demand environments that recording engineers, mixers, producers, and editors work in – and has been specifically designed to solve many of the monitoring issues that career professionals face every day.
Listen all day (and all night) without fatigue
Listener fatigue is the thorn in the side of every studio engineer. Once it sets in, you’re done for the day. Core 47’s all-new Esotar Pro tweeter has been created to keep fatigue at bay so you won’t be finished before the mix is.
We’ve long been known for our sweet-sounding soft-dome tweeters. They provide hours of pinpoint imaging and detail without the tiring quality that’s common to other designs. The Esotar Pro builds on this heritage with the ingenious Hexis device. It’s an inner dome that sits just behind the diaphragm and optimises airflow, smooths the frequency response and eliminates unwanted internal resonances. The result is outstanding imaging, transient detail, and effortless high frequency response.
No more second-guessing
Let’s start at the top. Dynaudio studio monitors have always been famous for their revealing detail. The all-new Esotar Pro tweeter takes the word ‘revealing’ to a new level. It’s the culmination of our engineers’ obsessive attention to driver detail, and uses innovative airflow technology (as well as a powerful neodymium magnet) to ensure that what went in, comes out.
Advanced manufacturing techniques and extensive measuring in our Jupiter testing facility have resulted in the ingenious Hexis inner dome. It sits just behind the tweeter diaphragm and optimises airflow to improving thermal response and eliminating unwanted internal resonances. The result is the best imaging, transient detail, and effortless high frequency response. It’s the kind of tweeter you can listen to long into the night during marathon mix sessions. Full detail and clarity, but no fatigue.
The 4in midrange driver provides staggering detail. It uses our proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) material in its one-piece cone for the perfect balance of lightness, stiffness and damping. That, coupled with an aluminium voice-coil and neodymium magnet system, means an incredibly fast response and authoritative control. With crossover points at 475Hz and 5.25kHz, Core 47 delivers so much more of the critical vocal range in one driver than typical designs, ensuring your mix decisions on vocal balances and dialogue subtleties are made with confidence.
Core 47 and Core 7 share the same woofer. However, in a three-way design, this driver can focus on delivering deeper bass since midrange duties are handled by the 4in driver. This helps deliver the lower frequencies deliver awesome clarity, while the amplifier’s power and gentle roll-off let your ears (and your recordings) take full advantage of all the depth on offer. And, most importantly, all this deep energy is tonally accurate, letting you equalise bass instruments, kick drums, and all those subwoofer “booms” in the movies.
And because each driver is handmade in our factory in Denmark (we produce 1.4 million drivers each year for our home hi-fi, custom-install, in-car and pro-studio speakers), we can maintain incredible consistency. That means you can use Core monitors in multiple studios and have them all sound and perform at the same high level – everything you need to hear, everywhere you go. Should you need to replace a driver, you can either do it yourself and calibrate it to within 0.2dB as on the AIR series, or have your service centre do a full factory-level calibration.
