Dynaudio, the Danish loudspeaker manufacturer, has launched Evoke, a new, five-strong family of passive hifi speakers. Evoke has been designed and engineered from the ground-up, and features technology taken directly from Dynaudio’s high-end Contour line and the top-of-the-range Confidence series.

The range consists of two standmounters (Evoke 10 and Evoke 20), two floorstanders (Evoke 30 and Evoke 50) and a dedicated centre-channel (Evoke 25C) that turns the line-up into a full home-cinema system.

The all-new Cerotar tweeter makes its debut in Evoke. It’s a brand-new design based on Dynaudio’s Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the Esotar3 found in the new Confidence. Underneath the 28mm soft-dome diaphragm sits the new Hexis inner dome (something you’ll currently only find in Confidence). This optimises the airflow behind the playing surface to smooth-out the tweeter’s frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. The new motor has strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic magnets to further increase sensitivity.

The new Esotec+ woofers feature Dynaudio’s proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) in their diaphragms – just like all the company’s home, professional studio and automotive speakers have done for decades. The 14cm versions in Evoke 10, 30 and 25C have new surrounds and improved Ferrite+ magnet systems to extend their throw, their frequency response and their low-frequency dynamics – all while maintaining stellar midrange performance. The 18cm drivers in Evoke 20 and 50 borrow technology from Contour and Confidence to deliver eyebrow-raising low-frequency dynamics and timing. The Evoke 50’s midrange driver is directly derived from the one in the much-loved Contour 60. It has a powerful neodymium magnet, plus lightweight materials (including an aluminium voice-coil) specifically optimised for midrange duties. All Evoke speakers feature high-grade crossovers fitted with select components for the very best performance. Each of the cabinets is available in four finishes: Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood. New lacquering techniques mean the gloss versions have an, almost glass-like finish, while the wood versions have open veneers for a warm, natural feeling.

“We created Evoke because we want everyone to be able to enjoy genuine hifi – the thing we all aspire to – without having to rearrange rooms, throw out much-loved equipment, or agonise over the price. We created Evoke for the people who agonise over what to listen to next,” says product manager Otto Jørgensen.

Evoke 10 (£1250) is a compact two-way standmounter with a 14cm long-throw woofer. Like all new Evoke models, it features Dynaudio’s new 28mm Cerotar tweeter with the new Hexis inner dome.

Evoke 20 (£1800) is the larger of the two Evoke standmounters. This two-way design pairs the 28mm Cerotar tweeter and Hexis with an 18cm long-throw woofer.

Evoke 30 (£2900) is a compact 2.5-way floorstander. Under one metre tall, it has two 14cm long-throw woofers and the 28mm Cerotar tweeter (complete with the ingenious Hexis inner dome) to make for some serious presence.

Evoke 50 (pictured) (£3900) is a large three-way floor-standing loudspeaker. The biggest loudspeaker of the Evoke line, it combines a single 15cm midrange driver with a pair of 18cm long-throw woofers and the Cerotar tweeter, fitted with the Hexis.

Evoke 25C (pictured) (£1100) is a 2.5-way centre channel speaker comprising two 14cm long-throw woofers, as well as the range’s Cerotar tweeter (and Hexis), ensuring sonic parity in Evoke multi-channel systems.
