Special Forty

Simply innovative

Cutting-edge acoustic technology in a classic Dynaudio design

“What are you going to do for your 40th birthday?”, everyone asked. We thought about it for a bit and decided that since we aren’t big on huge decorated cakes and candles (although we are partial to a tasty fastelavnsboller), we’d celebrate a little differently. With a new speaker.

And yes, we know you’re the ones supposed to be giving us gifts – but we just couldn’t help ourselves. 

Happy birthday to us! Meet the new Special Forty anniversary speaker.

The team in Dynaudio Labs studied the legendary techniques and technologies that have made our speakers so celebrated over the past 40 years – and then took them back to the drawing board. The result? The ultimate compact standmounter in its class. 

The new Esotar Forty soft-dome tweeter features precision-optimised airflow conduits and a lower resonant frequency for complete integration with the new woofer. That woofer – Dynaudio’s best 17cm model yet – has an improved spider and excursion symmetry, plus a new, higher-grade hybrid magnet system for total clarity in its performance.
