We begin with the impressive transparency and bags of detail, which help to provide context into the performance’s environment.
In a hall, on a stage, in a studio, with or without air conditioning (in the case of The Sopranos soundtrack) – it is quite apparent what sort of setting and acoustics you’re listening to, with production techniques laid bare.
It’s a lively listen. The Emit M10s have a masterful grasp of rhythm, and what you get is more precise than anything offered by the B&W 685 S2s or Quad S-1s. Give them something challenging and they just lap it up.
Major Lazer’s Pon de Floor is a messy obstacle course littered with varying rhythms and dynamic shifts, and these Dynaudios breeze through it with agility and panache.
