Dynaudio Emit 30 Walnut
Emit 30 is perfect for larger stereo systems or compact multi-channel home cinema set-ups in medium to large rooms.
If you’re looking for a little more power from your system, you’ve found it. Emit 30 is a compact two-and-a-half-way speaker designed to impress whether it’s used as a stand-alone stereo pair or as part of a 5.1-channel (or more) home cinema.
Like its little brother, Emit 10, it uses 14cm MSP woofers similar to those used in the Evoke series – this time doubled-up in each speaker for more low-frequency muscle, plus midrange clarity and punch. MSP stands for Magnesium Silicate Polymer. It’s a material Dynaudio developed in-house for our woofer cones, and have used for decades – including on their most-lauded high-end models. MSP provides precisely the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping to deliver control and outright power exactly where it’s needed.
Premium Woofer Technologies
The cones are moulded in one piece; Dynaudio don’t use a separate glued dust-cap. The little balance ribs around the edge of the centre are bonded directly to the voice-coil behind it, making the whole motor assembly one solid piece. Using fewer moving parts gives Dynaudio engineers fine control over how the speaker moves – which, in turn, means fine control over how it performs. You’ll hear it as strong, tight bass and startlingly clear vocals, guitars and more. Even at eyebrow-raising volume.
And each woofer is powered by a dual-stacked strontium carbonite Ferrite+ ceramic magnet system. Using two magnets means Dynaudio engineers can more effectively direct where the magnetic energy goes – it’s a lesson learned developing the award-winning Special Forty anniversary series, and it’s thrilling to see this technology employed in Dynaudio’s entry-level family.
The target for all that flux is the voice-coil. Dynaudio uses aluminium windings in Emit 30. Aluminium is light (which minimises inertia on the cone’s back-and-forth movement), and because it’s lighter than copper wire, it means they can pack more windings on to the two-layer glass-fibre former. More windings equals more power, and greater control over fine movement. There’s a twist, though (please pardon the pun): Dynaudio coated the aluminium wire in a very thin copper coating to further increase the control the amplifier has on the voice-coil. More force with only a fractional weight gain: win-win.
High-Level Tweeter Performance
Emit 30 uses the Cerotar tweeter directly from Evoke. It’s a 28mm soft-dome design that includes the ingenious Hexis inner-dome device. The coated fabric dome delivers sweet-sounding high frequencies – all the openness and detail the artists want you to experience in their recordings – while the Hexis smooths the frequency response and reduces unwanted resonance for surprising clarity.
Cerotar is powered by a powerful Ferrite+ strontium carbonate ceramic magnet system. It gives the tweeter all the power it needs to play loud without breakup while maintaining all the nuance you could want. Even at neighbour-bothering levels.
And because it uses technology from Dynaudio’s top-of-the-range Core pro reference speakers (whose users need to listen intently for long periods), you won’t get tired when you’re in the middle of a long session.
Inside the Crossover
The mid/bass drivers and tweeter are marshalled by a custom-designed crossover from the same team who designed the Heritage Special and Core. Dynaudio engineers used a hybrid first- and second-order topology for the tweeter and woofer respectively, giving them exceptional control over each driver’s behaviour. It means you’ll hear what the artist wants you to hear, without compromise.
Round the back, you’ll see the bass-reflex port. It’s a dual-flared design to reduce air turbulence and minimise unwanted ‘chuffing’, especially with deep notes. Dynaudio engineers have even tuned the internal damping material (yes, that’s possible). It’s measured down to the gram for the perfect combination of damping and openness.
The cabinets are made from 18mm MDF, covered in beautiful custom laminate finishes. There are three available: Black, White and Walnut. All come with magnetic grilles, too – so if you want a different look, or someone small in your house is obsessed with poking and prodding your speakers with sticky fingers, you’re well covered.
Emit 30: powerful floor-stander performance in a compact package. If you want to take your listening to the next level, they’ll really make your collection sing.
