Emit 10

Hi-fi starts with Emit

Compact speakers that belie their size


Emit 10

Emit 10 is a compact two-way standmount speaker that uses technology derived from our ultra-high-end Confidence, Contour i and Evoke series. It’s the ideal model for smaller rooms and satellite channels in a home cinema system.

Designed and engineered at Dynaudio Labs in Denmark, Emit 10 has been developed and tuned by the same minds behind our award-winning high-end families – right down to the smallest detail.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 14cm MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) mid-bass unit. MSP is a material we developed ourselves, and have been using for decades. It provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping for super-fine control without loss of power – essential when a driver is reproducing both low-bass and crucial midrange frequencies.


Legendary engineering

Emit 10’s mid/bass driver is derived from the Esotec+ in the successful Evoke series.

Its double magnet system gives better movement control and sensitivity, which means you’ll hear improved frequency response and dynamics at lower frequencies, while retaining crystal-clear midrange performance. That means you’ll hear what you want from a powerful rhythm section, plus guitars, vocals and more – all without distortion at louder volumes.

You’ll notice that the dust-cap isn’t simply glued on. It’s part of the playing surface of the cone. The little dashed line around its edge – the balance rib structure – is bonded directly to the 38mm voice-coil behind it. It’s an incredibly strong connection with the motor, which means more of the coil’s motion energy is transferred to the diaphragm.


Behind the cone

The voice-coil itself is made of copper-clad aluminium wire. Aluminium is light, which gives the driver a fleetness of foot you might not find elsewhere, while the copper coating increases conductivity for more power. It’s a winning combination for detail and punch.

A high-quality double ferrite magnet system provides the power. It’s a stacked design to keep it compact, but it serves another purpose: using two magnets means our engineers were able to control the magnetic flux, directing it back to the voice-coil, where it’s needed the most. (We can’t break the laws of physics, but we do rather like to bend them a bit.)


High-quality Cerotar tweeter

The Cerotar tweeter is exactly what you’ll find in Evoke. It’s based on the one we’ve used in our award-winning Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the incredible Esotar3, which you’ll hear in Heritage Special and Confidence.

It’s a 28mm fabric soft-dome unit with our special DSR (Dynaudio Secret Recipe) coating. Why fabric soft-dome tweeters? They convey all the detail and openness you could wish to hear from your recordings without subjecting you to unwanted fatigue over longer listening sessions. These are speakers you can (and, we hope, will) listen to late into the night.

Behind the dome sits our much-talked-about Hexis device. It’s an ingenious dimpled inner dome that sits directly behind the playing surface and shapes airflow to optimise the frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. That means the diaphragm can move more precisely, so you’ll hear even more detail.

It’s driven by a strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic magnet system for more sensitivity, improved clarity and a natural, dynamic response.


The crossover

Emit 10’s crossover was designed by the same engineers that worked on Heritage Special and our Core range of professional studio reference systems.

It uses a first-order design for the tweeter and a second-order topology for the mid/bass driver. We could’ve used a one-size-fits-all circuit, but that would mean compromising performance – and we’d much rather spend a little extra time to do it properly. We think you’ll agree when you hear them.


Finishing touches

Round the back, you’ll see the bass-reflex port. It’s a dual-flared design to reduce air turbulence and minimise unwanted ‘chuffing’, especially with deep notes. We’ve even tuned the internal damping material (yes, that’s possible). It’s measured down to the gram for the perfect combination of damping and openness.

The cabinets are made from 18mm MDF, covered in beautiful custom laminate finishes. There are three available: Black, White and Walnut. All come with magnetic grilles, too – so if you want a different look, or someone small in your house is obsessed with poking and prodding your speakers with sticky fingers, you’re well covered.

Emit 10 is the ideal way to take your next step into the world of hi-fi. Cutting-edge technology, simple Danish design and unmatched performance at this level. What’s not to like?





Designed and engineered in Denmark

The entire Emit family has been put through its paces in our world-class Jupiter measuring facility at Dynaudio Labs. We treat it exactly the same as we do every other speaker in our range: no stone left unturned.


Cerotar tweeter

Emit uses the highly regarded Cerotar tweeter from our Evoke series. It's a high-quality high-frequency driver inspired by our top-end Confidence and Heritage Special speakers, and includes the innovative resonance-defeating Hexis inner dome.


Clean and simple

Each speaker in the Emit range is designed to fit with modern lifestyles and interiors. Clean lines, simple finishes and minimalist Scandinavian looks – whether you're listening in stereo or have a full multi-channel system.

HI-FI+ Issue 211

The smallest member of the Emit family appears to have won Hi-Fi+'s Alan Sircom's overwhelming approval. His summary says it all.

"The Emit 10’s musical delivery is smooth, detailed and with an articulation that makes these more versatile than many bookshelf rivals. C’mon, other brands... at least try and compete with the Emit 10!"

Emit 10 impresses Thomas Kirche from Likehifi.de. You can read the full review  (auf Deutsch or using your browser's translator tool) via the button below.

"The Dynaudio Emit 10s do things a little differently though. They impose themselves more and give the music a very pleasant push forward. Never exaggerating, they just seem lively and open when it comes to sound reproduction."


Emit 10 has Audiograde's Andrew Simpson convinced, despite its modestly-sized cabinet dimensions "the Emit 10s bring genuine depth and scale to the music, especially across the mid-to-low frequencies, that defies their diminutive cabinets."

He concludes the review by saying – "you are getting what should really be a higher priced product, but presented in a modern looking (and highly convincing) vinyl wrapped cabinet to bring you more actual speaker for your money." – and issues Emit 10 Audiograde's "Recommended" seal of approval.


Emit 10 impresses HVT Magazine reviewer John van der Veer – "If you are looking for loudspeakers in this price range and of this size, then an audition of the Emit 10 is not to be missed (..). A very strong audiophile product that is very, very affordable. Great class."

LowBeats' Holger Biermann checked out Emit 10,  as was impressed at just how much loudspeaker it offers for so little money. You can read the full review  (auf Deutsch or using your browser's translator tool) via the button below.

"The Dynaudio Emit 10 is currently the smallest and cheapest model from the Danes, but if you listen to it, you would never guess that this compact speaker costs just 730 euros…"


We put the same attention to detail into developing all our products, and we share as much technology as we can across our ranges to bring authentic Dynaudio performance to every speaker we make. Emit might be the entry point, but it offers much more than just a glimpse into our high-end world.
