Dynaudio has a long tradition with excellent high-end compact monitors. The legendary Contour 1.3 SE, the Crafft, and the Confidence 3 were each milestones in their field and became real classics. The Confidence C1 Platinum continues this tradition.

The Esotar2 with Precision Coating, Neodymium double magnet and absorbing rear chamber provides the perfect platform for the higher frequencies, while the woofer with its MSP cone, light aluminium wire voice coil and Kapton former is also one of Dynaudio’s best. The 1st order cross-over filter consists of select components and follows a special design achieving a sound radiation slightly directed upwards. The C1 has excellent imaging and staging, while sound reflections from the floor will be considerably less than with conventional monitor designs.

The C1 can be combined with the Stand 6 for a synergy of performance and design elegance. The Stand 6 is made from aluminium and features a multi-layer plinth to provide the best possible foundation for a compact speaker.

The Confidence C1 allows the same smooth tonal balance, reproduction of the finest details and the homogeneity of the larger Confidence models from a fascinating compact monitor loudspeaker design.

As a further refinement the Confidence Platinum models are available in the select finishes established with the Evidence Platinum:

Mocca - Bird’s Eye Maple real wood veneer stained in dark brown, finished with clear piano lacquer.
Bordeaux – Bird’s Eye Maple real wood veneer stained in dark red, finished with clear piano lacquer.
Rosewood – Rosewood veneer stained in a glowing dark red, finished with clear piano lacquer.
Piano Black – Deep black piano lacquer

Confidence Platinum Series

The Confidence series has been one of the most successful and most acclaimed high-end loudspeaker ranges in the world for nearly two decades. Even the very first Confidence generation of the 1990’s established a benchmark in the authentic reproduction of music. The latest Confidence Platinum series features Dynaudio’s innovative DDC technology, the legendary Esotar2 tweeter and expertly built and elegantly finished cabinets, making it the finest sounding and most distinguished Confidence range yet.

Incorporating select high-performance drive units and the finest hand-crafted finishes, the new Confidence models have been further refined. Every model features Dynaudio’s outstanding Esotar2 tweeter. In its latest version, the Esotar2 is further optimized via Dynaudio’s Precision Coating, improving the exceptionally smooth response and ensuring the authentic reproduction of all fine musical details.

Also the Confidence woofers are Dynaudio’s finest, incorporating a symmetrical double magnet system, extremely light non-magnetic Kapton voice coil formers and the company’s own MSP cone material. A cross-over filter network with select components and high-quality internal wiring are the finishing touches on the Confidence’s technological design.

  

The floor-standing models are equipped with DDC, Dynaudio Directivity Control. DDC consists of a finely-tuned balance of symmetrical dual drive units, optimized driver positioning and an advanced crossover design, which serve to reduce sound reflections from the floor and ceiling in the listening room.

The CNC-machined front baffle has also been optimally shaped in order to improve sound dispersion. The new Confidence Platinum design aesthetic features all aluminium parts finished in satin black. The aluminium tweeter plate receives additional glass-blasting to achieve the finest finish effect. The black detailing provides the Confidence Platinum models a stronger, bolder and darker appearance that stands out from all earlier Confidence models, while it can also be elegantly combined with the Evidence Platinum flagship model in a high-end multi-channel set-up.

Engineered and hand-built by Dynaudio in Denmark, the Confidence Platinum models are available in four select finishes, while other finishes can be made upon request via special order:
