LYD 8

Astonishing accuracy across the board. Precision, power… and properly honest reproduction. With a pair of LYD 8s taking charge of your music, you can be assured a pitch-perfect performance

With its 8in MSP woofer and state-of-the-art DSP, LYD 8 provides the kind of performance, precision and bass heft that dreams (and maybe hit albums) are made of. Like the rest of the range, these nearfield monitors let you tune their sound for their position in the room, feature handmade drivers, and contain advanced Class-D amps.

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’.”

Resident Advisor: Excellent Clarity Even at Very Low Volumes


"The bass on the LYD 8s is excellent. It was never cloudy or woolly and, in fact, revealed some of the flaws in my own audio interface converters. The high-end is equally impressive, with excellent clarity even at very low volumes. (...) It allows you to make decisions faster and move quickly through the mix process, a benefit that cannot be overstated."

Resident Advisor

The Most Extended and Linear Bass Response


"I felt rather comfortable nearly immediately with the LYD8s. Indeed, at first, the bottom-end response seemed a little too rumbly, but after a week of break-in, that bottom-end came into balance with the smooth and genuinely accurate performance of the soft dome tweeter. This was the most extended and linear bass response I’ve ever heard from compact nearfields. (...) I would estimate the LYD Series will become market leaders."
