Dynaudio Core 59– the flagship of our high-end professional reference monitor series – is that monitor. This three-way speaker features uncompromising class-D amplification, cutting-edge digital signal processing, a super-inert 32mm-thick baffle and a flat bass response down to 36Hz at -6dB.
It’s a serious system designed for serious audio professionals. Core 59 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 59’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.
The speaker’s 5in midrange driver provides staggering detail. It uses our proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) material in its cone for the best combination of lightness, stiffness and damping and, coupled with an aluminium voice-coil, has an incredibly fast response and authoritative control from its neodymium magnet system. With crossover points at 385Hz and 5kHz, Core 59 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 total confidence.
Core 59’s new bass driver has emerged from over 18 months of intensive study into subwoofer driver technology, including our 18S subwoofer, which dives all the way down to 16Hz. The outcome of that research is a new copper voice-coil and glass-fibre former, pushed by ceramic magnets and a 500W class-D Pascal amplifier. It gives the 9in long-excursion woofer even more grip on the bottom without sacrificing a deep frequency response.
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.
