The Contour is possibly the most recognized range of Dynaudio loudspeakers.
In its latest Limited Edition generation, many technologies have been filtered down from the Evidence and Confidence Platinum developments.
The extremely rigid cabinet features a special baffle assembly: it consists of three layers; the front of the cabinet itself, a layer of damping material, and a thick front metal plate.
This construction effectively eliminates any cabinet resonance and coloration, even at very high volume levels.
The front baffles of the Contour LE models produced in hand-crafted, select natural wood veneers are finished in satin black lacquer, while the Contour LE models featuring the Piano Black finish are furnished with a steel finished front baffle. All models are fitted with a magnetically attached black fabric grille.
The S 1.4 LE is available in Bubinga piano lacquer, oiled Walnut, Mocca piano lacquer and Black piano lacquer. The die-cast aluminum woofer baskets are finished in matte black while the metal front baffle is finished in satin black. The high-gloss black piano lacquer version of the Contour LE has a metal front made of stainless steel which offers a beautiful contrast to the gloss black cabinet.
Yet beauty is more than skin-deep. The Contour LE has been technically refined and further upgraded as well. The Dynaudio soft dome tweeter with Precision Coating provides fine, detailed high frequencies; while the internal wiring uses high-quality OFC copper cable. The crossover has been further refined by using special ceramic resistors and high quality capacitors, providing an exceptionally pure and refined music reproduction. The Contour woofers include the best Dynaudio technology such as MSP cones, extremely light aluminium wire voice coils on Kapton formers and rigid, low resonance die-cast aluminium baskets.
One of the most distinct part of the Contour is it construction: The extremely stiff cabinet features a unique baffle. It consists of three layers, including a layer of damping material, and a thick metal plate. This construction effectively reduces cabinet resonance and allows excellent sound performance up to the highest volume levels. On this baffle the tweeter is positioned below the woofers to achieve ideal time alignment at the listening position. For the best sound experience in the room Dynaudio suggests the dedicated Stand 6 with the additional S1.4 top plate. The Stand 6 provides a solid, low-resonance foundation and perfectly matches the design and size of the Contour cabinet.
The Contour S 1.4 combines the best of Dynaudio: The finest cabinet finishes handmade in Denmark, an elegant and slim loudspeaker cabinet design, advanced Dynaudio driver technology, and the renowned, refined and balanced Dynaudio sound quality.
The Contour LE models are available in a choice of three real-wood veneer finishes – natural oiled Walnut, and Bubinga or Mocca piano gloss lacquer – as well as in Black piano lacquer with a stainless steel baffle.
