Exceptionally accurate mix experience with LYD 48

“The 3-way design of the LYD 48’s is a true step forward for an already legendary brand, and in our testing it produced a exceptionally accurate mix experience with very little ear fatigue.” (Dave Edwards, DJ Booth)

The balanced sound of LYD 48 gives quick and great results

“The Dynaudio LYD 48 studio monitors and 18S sub combine to create a great-sounding four-way system. The transparent representation of the individual instruments of a song gives you a lot of confidence in what you’re hearing when mixing, so that details can be nicely highlighted and you quickly get useful results.”

(Chris Pfeil,

An incredible, balanced sound at a great price

“The LYD 48s offer an incredible, balanced sound at a great price, and are truly the flagship of a fleet of award-winning monitors.”

(Andy Jones, MusicTech Magazine)

You could listen to these for hours without experiencing fatigue

Things just sound like they should. When A/Bing with some other speakers, coming back to the Dynaudio combo just felt right.

LYD 48 in short: Balanced and uniform sound

“We definitely appreciated the sound we heard through this monitor – full and consistent – which I believe is the result of excellent engineering in horizontal development with the elegant choice of the symmetrical arrangement of the speakers.”

(Francesco Passarelli, MusicOff)

Fantastic detail and on-point transient response

“The detail in the top end is fantastic, the transient response is on point, and the low end is quite substantial while being well-controlled. If you’re shopping in this price range, you should give these a listen.”

(Brandon T. Hickey, Mix Magazine)

“The performance of the LYD 48 in the bass end was exemplary and I was very impressed by the level of definition and transient detail that it delivered in the mid and treble frequencies, even when the bottom end was shaking the metaphorical floorboards.”

(Bob Thomas, Sound On Sound)
