Making a Contour without its signature baffle would be like making a car without wheels. Unthinkable. But there’s always room for improvement – and our designers love to stretch their legs (you should see the number of sketches they produced for just this part). This baffle is aluminium, and set into the cabinet. Its chamfer is included in the driver’s basket – which not only looks great, but also reduces unwanted high-frequency diffraction effects for clearer treble, and provides a solid foundation for the drivers to do their work. A solid foundation means improved high-volume performance at low frequencies, too (although your neighbours might not thank us for that).
And although we might have changed the cabinet’s shape (square is out; curves are in), the new design tips a respectful nod to older Contours. Look at it from the top; you’ll see the old baffle design in its shape. But it isn’t just for show – the new shape marries those aesthetics with cutting-edge acoustic physics. Its multi-layered construction is extremely well-damped, which means the Contour’s sound goes exactly where it’s supposed to: forwards.
We’ve redesigned the internal wiring and crossover, too. You won’t see what we’ve done, but you’ll hear the effect: amazingly clear sound, even off to the sides of the speakers. We love it.
The world renown Esotar 2
The all-new Contour uses the ultra-pure, ultra-clear Esotar2 fabric soft-dome tweeter. It’s Dynaudio’s finest tweeter and commonly regarded as one of the world’s best-ever drivers.
Brand-new one-piece extended-excursion woofers packed with new technology. You won’t find them on any other speaker. Anywhere.
We’ve redesigned the entire crossover, including using ultra high-quality Mundorf capacitors and a brand-new wiring configuration for even better bass.
Curved edges with sonic purpose
Brand-new elegant and sleek looking cabinet that provides a solid foundation for the drivers to do their job.
