Evokative new range from Dynaudio
Monday, December 3, 2018

Danish loudspeaker manufacturer Dynaudio has launched Evoke a five-strong family of loudspeakers designed and engineered from the ground-up. Featuring technology taken directly from Dynaudio’s high-end Contour line and the top-of-the-range Confidence series (previewed at 2018’s Munich High-End show). The range consists of two standmounters (Evoke 10 and Evoke 20), two floorstanders (Evoke 30 and Evoke 50) and a dedicated centre-channel (Evoke 25C) that turns the line-up into a full home-cinema system. 

The all-new Cerotar tweeter makes its debut in Evoke. It’s based on Dynaudio’s award-winning Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the Esotar3 found in the new Confidence. Underneath the 28mm soft-dome diaphragm sits the Hexis inner dome (something you’ll currently only find in Confidence). This optimises the airflow behind the playing surface to smooth-out the tweeter’s frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. The new motor has strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic magnets to further increase sensitivity.

The Esotec+ woofers feature Dynaudio’s proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) in their diaphragms. The 14cm versions in Evoke 10, 30 and 25C have new surrounds and improved Ferrite+ magnet systems to extend their throw, frequency response and low-frequency dynamics. The 18cm drivers in Evoke 20 and 50 borrow technology from Contour and Confidence to deliver trouser flapping low-frequency dynamics and timing. The Evoke 50’s midrange driver has a powerful neodymium magnet, plus lightweight materials (including an aluminium voice-coil) specifically optimised for midrange duties. All Evoke speakers feature high-grade crossovers fitted with select components for the very best performance. 
Each of the models is available in four finishes: black high gloss, white high gloss, walnut wood and blonde wood. New lacquering techniques mean the gloss versions have an almost glass- like finish, while the wood versions have open veneers for a warm, natural feeling. 

Evoke range
Evoke 10 (£1,250, above) is a compact two-way standmounter with a 14cm long-throw woofer. Like all new Evoke models, it features Dynaudio’s new 28mm Cerotar tweeter with the new Hexis inner dome. 
Evoke 20 (£1,800, below) is the larger of the two Evoke standmounters. This two-way design pairs the 28mm Cerotar tweeter and Hexis with an 18cm long-throw woofer.
Evoke 30 (£2,900, top of page) is a compact 2.5-way floorstander. Under one metre tall, it has two 14cm long-throw woofers and the 28mm Cerotar tweeter (complete with the ingenious Hexis inner dome) to make for some serious presence. 
Evoke 50 (£3,900) is a large three-way floor-standing loudspeaker. The biggest loudspeaker of the Evoke line, it combines a single 15cm midrange driver with a pair of 18cm long-throw woofers and the Cerotar tweeter, fitted with the Hexis.
Evoke 25C (£1,100) is a 2.5-way centre channel speaker comprising two 14cm long- throw woofers, as well as the range’s Cerotar tweeter (and Hexis), ensuring sonic parity in Evoke multi-channel systems.
