I was just wondering why DynAudio Speakers are not mentioned much by audiophiles.
Mine are custom cabinets and crossovers, but still use DynAudio drivers. IIRC they are the D21A tweeters, D54 midrange, and MW106 mid woofers.
The speakers throw a vast soundstage,pin point imaging and are very coherent. I do use them as satellites with subwoofers.
I noticed the other day that DynAudio makes a top of the line speaker and has a asking price near 200k.
For that much money they have to..I would think perform pretty well. 339E97B6-CB8F-49F7-8608-C07000BAA5BE.jpeg 92EC85EE-3AB3-4C10-B477-BB7648E7DEA3.png

They are not more expensive than many others.
And they also have models that cost below $85,000/pair US.

DynAudio like any other brand of speakers have their fans.
Some of their tweeters are among the best and preferred by some acolytes.
Some of their models measure very well, and perform even better than what they measure.

They had some success about 15-20 years ago and then they kind of disappeared from the scene. Not sure why maybe marketing, reviews, customer awareness, etc. but some speakers just don't get traction in the US high-end markets. JBL is another example and it's a domestic product. I know in the older times the audio rags had something to do with it but I don't think reviews matter that much today.
