The Contour LE series consists of the bookshelf Contour S 1.4 LE (SRP £2,950) and the floorstanding Contour S 3.4LE (SRP £5,250), both available in four finishes: Burbinga piano lacquer, dyn_news_speakoiled walnut, mocca piano lacquer and black piano lacquer. At the heart of the handcrafted, furniture grade cabinets sit die-cast aluminium woofer baskets finished in matt black while the metal front is finished in satin black. The high-gloss black piano lacquer version of the Contour features a metal front made of stainless steel.

One of the most distinctive features of the Contour LE is its construction. The extremely rigid cabinet features a unique baffle. Consisting of three layers, including a layer of damping material and a thick metal plate, this construction effectively reduces cabinet resonance.

Aside from the aesthetic overhaul the Contour LE has also received an acoustic upgrade. The Dynaudio soft dome tweeter has Precision Coating and the internal wiring uses OFC copper cable for minimal resistance. The crossover has been refined by using special ceramic resistors and high quality capacitors. The Contour woofers include the best proprietary Dynaudio technologies such as Magnesium Silicate Polymer cones, extremely light aluminium wire voice coils on Kapton formers and rigid, low resonance die-cast aluminium baskets. The culmination of these technologies has allowed Dynaudio to create a “natural, balanced yet dynamic performance that is unique to the Contour LE series”.
