There’s a reason why I’m calling this our ultimate solution. I’ve been an advocate of Dynaudio for many years, especially when it comes to the Core studio monitors we’re offering in this package. 

I’ve talked about how harsh the garage is when it comes to audio being in there. It’s not the best place for any kind of speaker, but what I’ve discovered is when you have a speaker that comes equipped with a silk dome and a very controlled esotar pro tweeter combined with the smoothness you specifically get from a Dynaudio MSP mid-bass or bass driver, they do exceptionally well in a less than ideal listening atmosphere. These are so good. 

I’ve gone into greater detail with the entire Dynaudio Core line as well as the Bluesound Node - be sure to check those videos out. I want you to buy all this expensive stuff, but I also want you to be well informed about what you’re getting and how it all works.

So, first, you’re going to select your speaker. In this solution, we’re offering the full Dynaudio Core line - that’s the Core 7’s, Core 47’s, and Core 59’s (my pick). What distinguishes the three is the Core 7’s have a 7” woofer, single 1” tweeter, the Core 47’s have a 7” woofer, 4” mid-bass driver with a 1” tweeter, and the big boy Core 59’s have a 9” driver, 5” mid-range, 1” tweeter. They all have the class-D Pascal amplifier that gives the 9” long-excursion woofer more grip on the bottom without sacrificing deep frequency response. In other words, these have some pretty serious amplification,  which is perfect for the garage.

Secondly, you have to decide what preamp/DAC (Digital Analog Converter) you want to go with or what do you want to use to process the signal. The two choices you’ll have in this solution are the 1) Bluesound Node or 2) NAD 658. The main difference between the two is the internal circuitry. The C658 is a bigger power supply, it’s going to sound better, and it also has XLR connections, so you can go directly from this unit into your Core speakers without using an adaptor. The C658 also has room correction (Dirac Live) that analyzes any room (in this case the garage) for maximum performance. Having this room correction ability can make a significant difference especially in the garage with metal cabinets, concrete floors, glass, etc.

Third, choose your subwoofer. I think with the Core line, you want one of two subwoofers. Either the Dynaudio Core Sub or the Dynaudio Sub 18s. This is an optional add-on, but I’m telling you, if you want the absolute best audio experience, add this to your package. The Core Sub is the big boy; the Sub 18s is what you want for the Core studio monitors because it has DSP (digital signal processing) that allows you to tune it specifically for the Core speakers.  

With your subwoofer add-on, you’ll have the option to either run it wired (which I highly recommend) or wireless. To be completely honest with you, I don’t really notice much of a difference in sound between the two. Although, you will lose roughly 2-3 Hz of low-frequency power when you’re not wired. 

With either setup, we’ll send you the correct cables to use. 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. If it’s the wired setup, we’ll send you the Monoprice Premier Series XLR Male to RCA Male and 25’ Monoprice XLR Cable. I keep saying this, but this is a super simple setup. It sounds like a lot, but I’m telling you, once you get everything out of the box, laid out, and begin to put it all together, you’ll be up and running in no time. 

Lastly, 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.

I know that some of these HDMI cable options are expensive, but if your objective is to have a quality setup with little to no signal disturbance, this is what you’ve got to get.    

This is truly the ultimate solution. If you’re looking to have a similar setup as mine, this is it. Be sure to check out the video above for a deep dive into all of this stuff as well as how to set it up.
