Lyngdorf Audio extends its custom installation Discreet series
Lyngdorf Audio launches a new in-wall speaker, the D-60. The D-60 extends the company’s Discreet series designed for custom installations and is the fifth product in this series. The D-60 is a high-performance in-wall speaker with the Discreet series’ highest power handling, sensitivity, and achievable sound pressure level.
The Lyngdorf Discreet series has been introduced in 2021 with the D-500, D-500 Center, D-5 and D-5 IC for home cinemas as well as living room installations, complemented by the LS-1000 line-source speakers and BW-20 boundary woofer.
High-performance in-wall speaker
The D-60 has been designed as a high-performance in-wall speaker to be used for front channels with additional woofers as well as for surround channels. It offers the Discreet series’ highest power handling (200 W, IEC), sensitivity (92 dB 2.83 v/ 1 m), and achievable sound pressure level (112 dB). The D-60 is therefore the ideal choice for high-performance home cinemas and larger rooms, as well as for completing the outstanding Lyngdorf LS-1000 line source speakers with surround speakers on a similar performance level.
Powerful soft-dome tweeter and new midrange driver
The D-60 is equipped with a more powerful soft dome tweeter compared to the D-500 in-wall speaker, featuring a much stronger magnet. The two 18cm / 7-inch aluminum midrange drivers are equipped with vented magnets and vented die-cast baskets, while the inverted surround allows a flat speaker front and space-saving cabinet depth. The tweeter and both midrange units are driven by the chosen amplifier using a two-way-crossover design.
Designed to be used with additional woofers
The new D-60 covers frequencies from 22 kHz down to 80 Hz (-3dB) and is intended to be used with additional woofers for the LFE and bass, for example the Lyngdorf BW-20. In comparison, the D-500 with one midrange driver and two additional passive woofers reaches below 50Hz (-3dB), allowing to use it as a full range speaker for example left and right of a TV.
Low-resonance MDF enclosure
All speakers from the Lyngdorf Discreet series come with their own pre-mounted loudspeaker enclosure, so that no after-market backbox or closed wall cavity is required, and a defined and consistent sound performance can be ensured in different rooms and wall constructions. The D-60 is designed with a highquality, low-resonance MDF enclosure, finished in matte black and covered by a white, magnetically held front grill.
The D-60 production has started at Lyngdorf Audio in Skive, Denmark and the product is available from March 2023.
