Confidence 50 jatkaa legendaarisen Confidence C4:n perintöä uuden sukupolven teknologialla, pari
Nothing compares to the satisfaction of knowing – for a fact – that something is as good as it gets.
Sit back in your chair and listen, secure in the certainty that every detail of the speakers in front of you is dedicated to revealing every detail of the music they’re playing. Close your eyes and be delighted.
Confidence means pure performance.
It’s the best speaker range Dynaudio has ever produced, and it’s packed with science specifically developed to honour art. Original drivers – including the mighty Esotar3 tweeter – combine with a precision composite baffle, innovative cabinet design and optimised crossover to create the most advanced passive speaker in our history.
Intensive analysis in our Jupiter measuring facility has resulted in the next-generation of Dynaudio’s DDC sound-beaming technology – including the DDC Lens waveguide system. The Esotar3 tweeter in the DDC Lens works in tandem with the NeoTec woofers, the radical Horizon midrange driver surround and the innovative Compex baffle to ensure music goes exactly where you want it: your ears.
But you won’t focus on the tech – you’ll be lost in the music.
Experience the art of listening on a Confidence system. It’s a masterclass in audio.
With great power comes great responsibility. That’s why these large floorstanders are just as adept at shaking the room as they are reproducing the finest of details.
The Confidence 50 stands shoulder-to-shoulder (or baffle-to-baffle) in height with the Confidence C4 – the previous flagship of the range.
Like that legendary speaker, it’s a three-way design with twin woofers and twin midrange drivers. It’s stunningly constructed. Stunningly finished. And a stunning performer. It uses DDC (Dynaudio Directivity Control) technology to form a sound ‘beam’ that avoids reflections from floors and ceilings. And it features an Esotar tweeter and MSP woofers.
But it takes all of this – every single component – to an elevated level of performance.
You might notice that while the previous Confidence floor-standers used two tweeters, the updated Confidence 50 has just one. That’s because the engineers toiling away in Dynaudio Labs have discovered ways to optimise crossovers, waveguides and baffles to create a much simpler, better-performing version of the DDC platform (Peek behind the curtain and see how we decided to go with one tweeter instead of two in our six-part podcast series on Confidence).
It all centres on the DDC Lens – the stunning precision-machined waveguide around the Esotar3 tweeter (we think you’ll agree that’s a mouth-watering combination right there).
The DDC Lens has been simulated and topology-optimised to vertically focus the tweeter, midrange drivers and woofers on the listening position. That results in dramatically reduced reflections from floors and ceilings – which means you hear exactly what the driver system, and not the room, is doing.
The 28mm Esotar3 soft-dome tweeter takes over 40 years of Dynaudio expertise, plus plenty of learnings from the award-winning Esotar Forty unit – and rolls it all into the finest tweeter we’ve ever developed.
A powerful neodymium magnet system, innovations in airflow routing, the resonance-busting Hexis inner dome … it all combines to increase detail, clarity and sensitivity.
The Confidence 50’s updated MSP midrange drivers are a big departure from previous Dynaudio designs.
They use a radical surround design – the Horizon – that follows the cone’s shape right to the edge of the driver. This reduces the surround’s first resonant mode to effectively increase the whole playing surface area and improve performance. They also sit flush with the baffle to reduce diffractions from the diaphragm and the adjacent tweeter.
Behind the scenes, the basket has been given a lightweight organic design – one that’s come from extensive topology-optimisation simulations. It increases airflow, maintains its stability and rigidity and reduces weight simultaneously without sacrificing performance.
Everything is held securely in place in the ultra-rigid, super-damped and acoustically inert Compex composite baffle. It echoes the design of previous Confidences – but brings the look up to date in aesthetics and acoustic principles. That’s because it forms an integral part of the DDC Lens system, as well as providing perfect coupling and decoupling of the drivers.
Down below is the bass port . You won’t see it; it sits under the speaker. And because it fires downwards, we’ve been able to design it to perform exactly as we want it to without having to worry about putting a big hole in the beautiful finish.
