Special Forty

Dynaudio still surprise their selves. Some people might be content to sit back and be complacent about their successes after 40 years of constant innovation. They aren’t. In fact, they only get hungrier for new techniques and technologies.

That’s why Dynaudio developed the Special Forty: they wanted to revisit those innovations and see what they’d do differently this time.

What you won’t find here is anything revolutionary. Instead, you’ll discover a look at their past – along with some special sneak-previews of the future.

The Special Forty is classic Dynaudio: all the craftsmanship, attention to detail and total love of authentic sound you’ve come to expect. It’s the connoisseur’s choice – a simple pair of passive hi-fi speakers. But it isn’t about looking back, misty-eyed, at past glories and leaving it at that. It’s about using those glories as a platform from which to launch our next set of breakthroughs.

Esotar Forty

The new Esotar Forty tweeter maximises airflow for even more refinement, while its low resonant frequency smooths the transition to the woofer.

17cm woofer

Our best 17cm woofer. It’s based on what you’ll find in the Confidence and Evidence ranges, and uses a sophisticated hybrid magnet system for lower distortion and higher power.

First-order crossover

Phase Alignment and Impedance Alignment technologies keep this classic Dynaudio crossover topology firmly on top of its game.

Special finishes

The Special Forty’s exclusive Black Vine finish is a striking contrast of dark veneer shot through with vivid orange, while Ebony Wave is a captivatingly sinuous take on the classic hardwood. Both finishes are as striking as they are beautiful – and are unique to each speaker.
