Emit 10 is a compact two-way standmount speaker that uses technology derived from our ultra-high-end Confidence, Contour i and Evoke series. It’s the ideal model for smaller rooms and satellite channels in a home cinema system.

Hi-fi starts with Emit
Compact speakers that belie their size
Designed and engineered at Dynaudio Labs in Denmark, Emit 10 has been developed and tuned by the same minds behind our award-winning high-end families – right down to the smallest detail.
Under the hood, you’ll find a 14cm MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) mid-bass unit. MSP is a material we developed ourselves, and have been using for decades. It provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness and damping for super-fine control without loss of power – essential when a driver is reproducing both low-bass and crucial midrange frequencies.
Emit 10’s mid/bass driver is derived from the Esotec+ in the successful Evoke series. Its double magnet system gives better movement control and sensitivity, which means you’ll hear improved frequency response and dynamics at lower frequencies, while retaining crystal-clear midrange performance. That means you’ll hear what you want from a powerful rhythm section, plus guitars, vocals and more – all without distortion at louder volumes.
You’ll notice that the dust-cap isn’t simply glued on. It’s part of the playing surface of the cone. The little dashed line around its edge – the balance rib structure – is bonded directly to the 38mm voice-coil behind it. It’s an incredibly strong connection with the motor, which means more of the coil’s motion energy is transferred to the diaphragm.
Behind the cone
The voice-coil itself is made of copper-clad aluminum wire. Aluminum is light, which gives the driver a fleetness of foot you might not find elsewhere, while the copper coating increases conductivity for more power. It’s a winning combination for detail and punch.
A high-quality double ferrite magnet system provides the power. It’s a stacked design to keep it compact, but it serves another purpose: using two magnets means our engineers were able to control the magnetic flux, directing it back to the voice-coil, where it’s needed the most. (We can’t break the laws of physics, but we do rather like to bend them a bit.)
High-quality Cerotar tweeter
The Cerotar tweeter is exactly what you’ll find in Evoke. It’s based on the one we’ve used in our award-winning Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the incredible Esotar3, which you’ll hear in Heritage Special and Confidence.
It’s a 28mm fabric soft-dome unit with our special DSR (Dynaudio Secret Recipe) coating. Why fabric soft-dome tweeters? They convey all the detail and openness you could wish to hear from your recordings without subjecting you to unwanted fatigue over longer listening sessions. These are speakers you can (and, we hope, will) listen to late into the night.
Behind the dome sits our much-talked-about Hexis device. It’s an ingenious dimpled inner dome that sits directly behind the playing surface and shapes airflow to optimize the frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. That means the diaphragm can move more precisely, so you’ll hear even more detail.
It’s driven by a strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic magnet system for more sensitivity, improved clarity and a natural, dynamic response.
Emit 10’s crossover was designed by the same engineers that worked on Heritage Special and our Core range of professional studio reference systems. It uses a first-order design for the tweeter and a second-order topology for the mid/bass driver. We could’ve used a one-size-fits-all circuit, but that would mean compromising performance – and we’d much rather spend a little extra time to do it properly. We think you’ll agree when you hear them.
Round the back, you’ll see the bass-reflex port. It’s a dual-flared design to reduce air turbulence and minimize unwanted ‘chuffing’, especially with deep notes. We’ve even tuned the internal damping material (yes, that’s possible). It’s measured down to the gram for the perfect combination of damping and openness.
The cabinets are made from 18mm MDF, covered in beautiful custom laminate finishes. There are three available: Black, White and Walnut. All come with magnetic grilles, too – so if you want a different look, or someone small in your house is obsessed with poking and prodding your speakers with sticky fingers, you’re well covered.
Emit 10 is the ideal way to take your next step into the world of hi-fi. Cutting-edge technology, simple Danish design and unmatched performance at this level. What’s not to like?
