Contour 60

The big one: commanding, clear-cut, absolute. If you have a bigger listening room – or if you just like to play it loud – the Contour 60, with its unique midrange driver, is your new best friend.

If our designers loved working on the Contour 20 and 30, the Contour 60 was an even bigger ticket for them.

It’s a three-way design. At the bottom sit two 23cm MSP woofers (bigger, redesigned brothers of the 18cm drivers we’ve used in the Contour 20 and 30). At the top, like the jewel in the crown of every other speaker in the Contour range, is the magnificent Esotar2 soft-dome tweeter.

Between them is a completely updated15cm midrange driver. Like the rest of our drivers it uses an aluminium voice-coil. It also deploys a neodymium magnet system, and was designed using Finite Element Method optimisation techniques. We set Daniel, Danny, Andreas and their guys to work on it because we wanted the Contour 60 to retain that signature midrange sound in a large cabinet, without having to repurpose an existing driver for a job it wasn’t designed for. They did an amazing job.

Consistent Contour quality

All the drivers are powered by low-mass, high-durability aluminium voice-coils.

And the tweeter’s voice-coil sits – as they do across the Contour range – in a special magnetic ferrofluid. It works like a shock absorber and dissipates heat to reduce stress on the moving parts – which improves power-handling, widens the frequency response and ... and now we’re just boasting. What it means for you, in your favourite room, listening to your favourite music, is consistent Contour quality, at neighbour-bothering volumes (if you’re the type), all day.

The Contour 60 shares the same redesigned crossover and components as the rest of the range – and, of course, has Allan Kristiansen’s seal of factory approval on the construction and finish (his team will spot even the tiniest defect and spend three weeks refinishing not just one, but both speakers so they’re identical as a pair. They’re really hard to buy office furniture for).

The multi-layer curved cabinet and sleek-but-solid aluminium baffle provide your music (which was likely mixed using Dynaudio studio speakers, too) with a robust, defined acoustic foundation. So much so that, if we’ve done our jobs right, you’ll forget they’re even there and just ... listen.
