Evoke from Dynaudio is a range of five brand-new home Hi-Fi speakers that brings true high-end technology and performance to every lifestyle. Evoke gives every Hi-Fi enthusiast a chance to experience their very latest acoustic and aesthetic achievements as they embark on their high-end Hi-Fi journey.
Developed and designed by the same teams behind Dynaudio’s most prestigious and most advanced products, including the all-new Contour and Confidence ranges and their professional studio monitors, each speaker in the range has been designed from scratch – including drivers – and incorporates technology directly derived from their high-end home and professional products. It’s also been analysed extensively in their Jupiter measuring facility – a 13 x 13 x 13m room containing a 7-metre robot array bristling with high-quality microphones (see more in ‘What on earth is Jupiter’, below).
Featuring the new Cerotar tweeter, its design is based on two other Dynaudio drivers: the Esotar Forty tweeter from the award-winning Special Forty anniversary speaker, and the mighty new Esotar3 tweeter from the all-new, money-no-object Confidence series. Like all other Dynaudio tweeters, it has a 28mm precision-coated soft-dome diaphragm. The coating – applied in exactly the right places, at the right density – helps the tweeter’s frequency response reach north of 20,000Hz without distorting, without delivering unwanted resonances and without experiencing wavering or compression in its transient response.
Underneath the soft-dome diaphragm sits the Hexis inner dome – something you’ll currently only find in the new Confidence’s Esotar3 tweeter. The Hexis replaces the felt ring that used to fill the cavity behind the playing surface and has been engineered to further optimise airflow. It has the effect of further smoothing out the tweeter’s frequency response and minimising resonances – so all you get are the desirable ones.
The Evoke’s woofers all have diaphragms made from MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer), a proprietary material formulated, refined and developed by Dynaudio over the past four decades. MSP provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping for the most faithful sound reproduction. They have new surrounds to extend their throw, their frequency response and their low-frequency dynamics, all while maintaining the same high level of midrange performance.
The Evoke family uses a combination of lightweight aluminium (a long-time Dynaudio trademark) and copper voice-coils in its woofers. The material used depends on the driver it’s being used in; one material doesn’t suit every purpose, so we’ve made sure we use the correct one for the job in all cases.
Evoke 10, Evoke 20, Evoke 30 and Evoke 25C use aluminium. Whilst Evoke 50 uses copper for its woofers. It’s ideal for them because it gives more moving mass while maintaining the right amount of grip on the midrange for a perfectly integrated performance. Evoke 50’s woofers are pure bass-drivers; they don’t need the fleet-footed agility of a dedicated midrange unit. In all cases, including the Evoke 50’s midrange driver below, the spider keeping it all stable and true is made from Nomex.
The only speaker in the range to have a dedicated midrange unit is Evoke 50. The 15cm unit they chose is derived directly from the high-end Contour range – which means a powerful neodymium magnet, a 0.4mm-thin diaphragm and a glass-fibre voice-coil former with a trademark Dynaudio aluminium voice-coil.
Boasting the best of Danish design, Evoke is simple, clean, traditional, modern and luxurious, and is available in four beautiful finishes: Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood.
