LYD 5

Compact nearfield personal monitors for incredible precision in smaller spaces – and even at low volumes. The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Get the unvarnished truth and deliver your mixes exactly as the artist intended.

LYD 5, with its low-volume precision, is the ideal complement for any small studio set-up. It uses the same lightweight aluminium voice-coils in its handmade 5in MSP drive-units as our high-end hi-fi speakers, and pairs them with cutting-edge Class-D amplification as well as a 24-bit/96kHz signal path with advanced DSP.

Reviews

Engineering Integrity Makes LYD Classy and Capable


"Both the LYD 5 and LYD 8 are classy and capable nearfield monitors invested with thoughtful electro-acoustic engineering. They look great, their performance is up there with the best in their class, and that they’re relatively affordable only increases their appeal. (…) If you asked me, and I’m sure you did, to come up with one phrase to describe my feelings about the LYD monitors it would be ‘engineering integrity’.”
