Overview

The Dynaudio LYD 5 is a small, nearfield monitor engineered for precision.

It receives the same level of engineering and attention to detail as their home and car sound systems, tweaked for the studio.

It features the same lightweight aluminum voice coils like the company's high end hi-fi systems.

Class D amplification is paired with hi-resolution signal path and DSP for a wide range of tweakability for different room types.

The Dynaudio LYD 5 is a great performer for band oriented music. With its midrange clarity and response, rock mixes translate well to other speakers.
