To Hans Wetzel,

I read your review [of Dynaudio’s Emit M10] and as a lover and longtime owner of Dynaudio speakers I wanted to fill you in a few aspects of the design. I have had [Dynaudio’s] Audience 40 in my surround for over ten years. It is a great little speaker, sort of like what the Rogers LS3/5a could have been: an extremely accurate small speaker, but without the mid-bass hump. One of the things that it lacks, as opposed to its big brother Contour 1.8 MK II, which was my main speaker for many years, is a beveled edge to the baffle. It is not there for cosmetics, it is there to reduce diffraction at the baffles edge. I don’t know why more manufacturers don’t pay attention to that detail, as it should be a part of Speaker Design 101. There is also a good reason to have the bolt heads accessible on the face of the speakers. These can loosen over time, so it is good to periodically check that they are snug. Thanks for reviewing the Emit. I am glad that it continues in the spirit of their motto: Danes don’t lie.

Regards,
