Dynaudio, has just released it latest special edition model, the new Audience 52 SE ($1,400 per pair). Dynaudio engineers have incorporated several performance updates into the cabinet of the standard Audience 52 to create the advanced version of this model. Product highlights include a new tweeter and crossover, and select components sourced from the company’s recently discontinued Contour 1.3 mk II.

The Audience 52 SE tweeter is a new Esotec model, based on those developed for the new Dynaudio Contour S series, and features a double magnet system, an optimized back chamber geometry, a multiple coated fabric soft dome diaphragm, and an aluminum wire voice coil. The mid/bass driver is sourced directly from the revered Contour 1.3 mk II. It uses Dynaudio’s characteristic MSP (magnesium silicate polymer) one-piece cone, a three inch aluminum wire voice coil, and a high power magnet system integrated into a rigid die cast aluminum basket.

A new crossover was developed for the SE to integrate the drivers into the Audience 52 chassis, and is comprised of components such as air core inductors and zero compression resistors mounted onto a rigid circuit board. Also borrowed from the 1.3 mk II is the custom WBT binding post terminal assembly, which is directly connected to the crossover to minimize loss.

The new Audience 52 SE bridges the gap between the current model 52 ($990 per pair) and the company’s Contour S 1.4 ($2,800 per pair) mini-monitor. The Audience 52 is now shipping in a choice of natural cherry or natural maple wood veneer.
