All models of the new Emit series were developed, designed and fine-tuned in the Dynaudio Labs in Skanderborg, Denmark. A key role in this, of course, was played by the company's own state-of-the-art "Jupiter" measurement room.
All Emit speakers use the "Cerotar" tweeter from the renowned "Evoke" series. This in turn is based on the legendary "Esotar Forty" tweeter, found in the anniversary model Special Forty. The Cerotar's AirFlow magnet is made of strontium carbonate ferrite and ceramic, and the 28 mm voice coil is made of aluminum – Dynaudio trademarks also found in the legendary Esotar3 tweeter. The optimized flow characteristics of the rear chamber and the sophisticated Hexis dome behind the fabric dome effectively counteract unwanted resonances. The result is said to be an even more harmonious frequency response and improved imaging of the higher frequencies.
All other drivers of the Emit series are based on those of the Evoke series (Read our review of the Evoke 10 & 30 here). Their membranes are made of MSP (magnesium silicate polymer) – a material developed by Dynaudio themselves. According to the manufacturer, MSP offers just the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping, and is thus said to provide very high precision. The membranes are directly connected to the copper-clad aluminum voice coils, which aims to ensure even better control.
Strong ferrite ceramic dual magnet systems provide the necessary power. The use of multiple magnets is said to allow greater control over membrane movement and excursion. This is supposed to have improved dynamics in the lower frequency range without compromising midrange performance.
Hybrid crossovers are used in the new Emit series, allowing different filters with different slopes to be combined. The possibility to combine each driver with the appropriate filter aims to allow each driver to perform to its full potential, allowing for better homogeneity between them.
The cabinets of the new Emit series are made of 18mm thick MDF and feature laminate finishes. There are a total of three finishes to choose from: Black, White and Walnut.
The Emit series has been available in stores worldwide since June 24.
