We’re stepping into another realm when it comes to our ultimate packages. I’m building these solutions out the way I’d want them to be in my garage, so expect a lot of fancy and money to be spent. The Ultimate Dynaudio Bookshelf Solution is what I’d categorized as one of our premier kits, and rightfully so.
I understand how crazy this may look, but if you’re anything like me and see the value in quality products, the cost of something has little impact on your decision-making. Some people will say how ridiculous it is to put expensive equipment into a garage; I say, wherever you’re spending the majority of your time, you invest in that space to make it the best experience possible.
So, if you want to do this like me, here’s how it will go. The first thing you’re going to do is select your speakers. In this solution, we’re doing either Evoke 10 or Evoke 20 passive speakers. You’d then choose your color. You’ll have four options: 1) Walnut Wood 2) Blonde Wood 3) Black High Gloss 4) White High Gloss. In my garage, I had the Evoke 20’s in blonde wood. I feel the blonde wood is best for the garage because it doesn’t show as much dust as the others. It also has the best veneer (a high-quality wood finish). I talk about the Dynaudio Evokes in greater detail on a video I did. Be sure to check that out.
I would highly suggest you not do the black high gloss unless you’re willing to work for it. I guess if you own a black car, you won’t mind owning this colorway.
When you’re building your package, just know, it will come with all the cables you need to set it up. Trust me when I tell you, setting this up will be super simple. Chances are, you’ll have this up and running in under 10-minutes. If you do run into issues or if you need something custom, just hit up my guys, and they’ll get you taken care of.
After picking your speaker and color, you’d choose your source component (DAC). In this solution, it will be the NAD M33, NAD M10, or NAD C388. The best option here for most of us is the C388. NAD has a newer amp I plan to have in the store called the C399 once I can get a demo in-house. The C399 shares a lot of the same architecture as the M33 but with a little less fancy. I’ll dig into more with that amp once I actually have it.
What you decide to go with will depend on how much you’re willing to spend. If you’re really balling, you will go with the NAD M33 with the Evoke 20’s and a Sub 6. If you have a small place or a small area on top of your garage cabinet and want to save a little bit, you’ll get the Evoke 10’s with a NAD M10. You really can’t go wrong either way, but I’m always going to go big.
Now, we move into my favorite part, the subwoofer add-on option, which I highly suggest you do. With this package, you get the Dynaudio Sub 6. This subwoofer is my favorite thing of all the things I’ve discovered. I love the Evokes and the source components, but this sub is the real winner.
This sub is a dual 9” woofer. It’s not the loudest; it’s not going to play the loudest SPL, but there’s just something magical about it. It’s as if it disappears in the room. You’ll have to do very little to get it set up. It has the DSP (digital signal processing) software built-in that makes it work seamlessly with the Evokes. Think of it as already being calibrated to marry the two together to distribute the perfect sound for whatever room you’re putting it in.
You can either do a wired or wireless subwoofer setup like our other audio packages. If you’re going to do this wired, we’d include a Monoprice Premier Series XLR Male to RCA Male with a 25’ Monoprice Premier Series XLR Cable. I recommend if you can to go wired, but if you can’t, it’s no big deal. You’re losing roughly 2 Hz of low-end frequency when you go wireless, but I can tell you that you won’t even notice the difference.
If it’s the wireless setup you’re going with, we’ll send you the OSD Audio Nero Wireless Subwoofer Kit with a Monoprice Single Male to Dual Male - RCA Y-Adapter.
Be sure to watch the video above in its entirety to see how this all comes together along with how to set it up.
I want you to know that you will have full BlueOS capability with this setup. This software allows you to use your phone as a controller and your source component as the player - distributing high-quality sound with services like Tidal and Spotify.
This is truly the ultimate two-channel setup. I spent an entire week piecing this all together, and I’m happy with the way it came out. If you’re an audiophile and enjoy listening to music, go this route. You’d also go this route if you want to add in our video option (available on a separate page).
If you have a TV setup and want to do video (with audio to your speakers), you’d connect your HDMI cable to your source component (amp/preamp) to your television (eARC slot if available or ARC). I sell these in a variety of sizes depending on how long of a cable you need. 1-6 meters, you’d go with the Ethereal HDMI High Speed Cable. A 10-meter cable, the Velox 10 Meter HDMI Cable. A 49 ft (15m) cable, the Velox 8K Powered HDMI Cable. Another option is to run an optical cable from your amp to your TV. There’s really no reason to do this unless you absolutely have to.
