Dynaudio Focus 10
You know what they say about good things and small packages….
These compact speakers have been creating a stir with their performance for more than 40 years. The smallest member of the Focus family will send it skyward again. Focus 10 is more than just a pair of powered speakers. It’s a complete music system, packed with the technology that has helped Dynaudio achieve legendary status – coupled with the most advanced wireless features we can imagine. And we have thought of many things.
Simple and powerful
Streaming is placed in the front and center. With Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Roon, Bluetooth, and local network capabilities on board, Focus 10 can literally play anything stored in digital form from anywhere you can access it – online or on a networked hard drive at home. Hundreds of millions of tracks, all accessible with a tap on your phone or tablet.
Thanks to their built-in WiSA technology, the speaker also connect wirelessly to a compatible TV or USB dongle – eliminating the need for bulky home cinema and freeing up space on your equipment rack for something other than another black rectangle.
And the beauty is, it’s all so simple. Minimal setup time, only two cables for wall plugs, and a sleek, intuitive app for customizing, setting presets, and more. The transition from unboxing to true audiophile sound has never been so quick and easy.
A new way of listening
“Active” does not mean a single amplifier per speaker. This means a single amplifier per driver . For Focus 10, that means two each. Why an amplifier for each individual tweeter and woofer? Because that gives more control over their performance. And that means every driver sounds as good as it possibly can, without compromise.
Everything is kept in check with sophisticated DSP (digital signal processing) technology. It has taken all the lessons learned from developing our award-winning Focus XD, Xeo, LYD and Core product lines and created a system that is as effective as it is easy to use. Tell the speakers where they are in your room (near a wall, in a corner, or in open space) by selecting the appropriate option in the Dynaudio app, and they will optimize their performance for that position. If you want to dive deeper into calibration, there’s optional Dirac Live technology for fully customized results.
The magnetic grid is also smart. Focus 10 has specific EQ settings when in use or not (you’ll know it’s doing its thing when you see the light briefly glow blue).
Muscle power also belongs to the brain. With a total of 390W of Class D Pascal amplification under the hood in each speaker (110W for the tweeter and 180W for the woofer), the Focus 10 is well equipped and ready to fill even a medium-sized room with high-quality sound. In fact, you’d say they pack more punch than a speaker their size is entitled to.
There’s even an automatic fail-safe system to ensure the speakers aren’t damaged when set to annoying levels: A special sliding high-pass filter reduces woofer excursion as the volume increases. Smart.
Classic Dynaudio drivers
The drivers themselves are as impressive as the technology that feeds them.
A 28 mm Cerotar soft dome tweeter sits at the top. It uses techniques and materials developed during the development of the acclaimed Confidence, Special Forty and Core series – including the Hexis inner dome (which sits directly under the diaphragm and refines the airflow behind the playing surface to smooth the frequency response and reduce unwanted resonance). The optimized magnet system uses a strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic design to increase the tweeter’s sensitivity – bringing incredible detail and sweet, natural treble response. This means extremely low listener fatigue … which means you can listen longer. Always a good thing.
The 14 cm Esotec+ mid/bass driver is the best Dynaudio has ever developed in a speaker this size. They developed it with the experience gained from the development of the new Contour series – so pedigree is an understatement. Its new surround and improved magnet system create an extended throw that extends frequency response at lower frequencies while maintaining its outstanding midrange performance. And because the box is closed, we were able to extend this low-frequency power deep into the pants.
Looks so exciting
Focus 10 wouldn’t be a Dynaudio speaker if it didn’t look incredible. It’s available in four beautiful finishes – Blonde Wood, Walnut, High Gloss Black and High Gloss White – each designed to complement real living spaces.
After all, not everyone wants to redecorate their living room around their speakers.
Then there are the little details that you may not notice at first. The cover rings of brushed anodized aluminum on the tweeter and midrange / woofer. The discreet Dynaudio logo on the aluminum top of the radiator grille. The light on the front of the speaker that glows softly in different colors to let you know what’s happening. Even the backplate was specially treated.
Focus 10 is real Danish high-end HiFi, made wireless. If your raised eyebrows had eyebrows, they would be raised as well. It’s time to hear something new …
Studio quality performance
Focus amplifiers are based on the same technology we use in the Core series of professional reference monitors – including room compensation algorithms. This means you can get closer than ever to what the artists heard in the studio.
If you can get it online, you can stream it on Focus 10. A royal flood of services-including Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, and Roon-brings millions of Hi-Fi quality tracks right to your living room.
Classic Dynaudio drivers
From the soft dome tweeter with Hexis to the MSP mid/bass driver with its signature aluminum voice coil, Focus 10 does not deviate from its legendary roots. Modern design, classic performance.
Clean, elegant, contemporary and stylish. Dynaudio believes that speakers should be designed for the people who use them, which is why you will find only noble, honest materials and finishes: High Gloss Black, High Gloss White, Blonde Wood and Walnut.
