The Dynaudio Evoke 50 has been designed by people who love all sound. It has been crafted from hundreds of hours of intensive measuring and listening – real listening, to real music, in real rooms. So when you play your collection, you know you’re hearing what they heard… something new. Evoke 50 is a full three-way floor standing speaker with a 28mm soft-dome tweeter, a 15cm neodymium midrange driver and twin 18cm woofers. And, of course, its Danish design looks fantastic wherever you put it. It’s an ideal match.
Midrange Technology: Evoke 50 is the only speaker in the family to have a dedicated midrange driver, so the engineers in Dynaudio Labs decided to make it a little bit special. The 15cm unit they chose is derived directly from the high-end Contour range – which means a powerful neodymium magnet, a 0.4mm-thin diaphragm and a glass-fibre voice-coil former with a trademark Dynaudio aluminum voice-coil. Why neodymium and not the Ferrite+ of the woofers? Because it’s light, and it’s powerful. Why aluminium and not copper? Again, because it’s light (and lets them put more windings in the voice-coil for a given weight). That’s a combination that gives the Dynaudio team amazing control over how the driver responds – they were able to fine-tune it to integrate perfectly with the woofers and tweeter.
Woofer Technology: Down at the bottom are two 18cm Esotec+ woofers. Like the Cerotar tweeter, they use trickle-down technology from the Contour and Confidence families to bring as much of that high-end DNA to Evoke as possible. The woofers are made from our own proprietary material, MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer). Dynaudio has been using it in their cones for decades – and have yet to find anything that gives a better balance of lightness, stiffness and damping. But while the Evoke 20 standmount speaker uses aluminium in its 18cm woofer, Evoke 50 uses copper. That’s because these are pure bass drivers – they don’t need the fleet-footed agility of a dedicated midrange unit, so we were able to give them more moving mass. The 0.4mm diaphragm is the same, though, as is the Ferrite+ ceramic magnet. That means power and detail. It’s just one of the solutions arrived at through extensive analysis and simulation in our Jupiter measuring facility.
Tweeter Technology: Up top is the brand-new 28mm Cerotar soft-dome tweeter. The Dynaudio engineers looked behind the curtain of the award-winning Special Forty and money-no-object Confidence tweeters and cherry-picked some key technologies to bring to Evoke. The headline-grabbing component is the Hexis – an ingenious inner dome that refines the airflow behind the playing surface to smooth-out its frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances.
Evoke 50 is available in four beautiful finishes: Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood. The shiny versions really are just that: new lacquering techniques have resulted in a sumptuous, almost glass-like finish. The wood versions use a tactile, open natural veneer for either a warm, dark tone or a light apricot look. You might notice that you can’t see any mounting screws. Evoke has simple, clean trim rings that emphasise the cabinet’s finish as well as the moving parts of the drivers. The rings are one-piece moulded, with the surface finish embedded in the moulding process.
