Hardware Messe 2014: Dynaudio intros new BM mkIII & BMS II series monitors


Still made in Denmark, Dynaudio Professional’s BM range has become a pro audio industry standard since its introduction 15 years ago. Since then, continuous improvements to this series have been made to further support discerning professionals’ needs for transparent, highly responsive and non-fatiguing listening monitors. This new series is the next step in that evolution.

The smaller BM Compact mkIII and BM5 mkIII models both feature expanded frequency response and SPL thanks to a combination of improvements including drivers design and Class D amplifiers. Each includes an auto standby mode as well as both XLR and RCA input connectors for maximum flexibility. BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII have been revoiced and now include Dynaudio Professional’s innovative wave guide that ensures utmost precision when distributing high frequencies. Both of the BMS II subwoofers have also been further optimized to compliment the new range of mkIII near-field monitors.

IsoAcoustics Stands Included
Dynaudio Professional searched for what it felt was the world’s best isolation stand and chose IsoAcoustics. Each of the new BM mkIII near-field monitors comes bundled with a dual-branded IsoAcoustics monitor stand that allows the monitors to ‘float’ in free space. This provides an authentic and uncolored sound that is achieved by eliminating energy transfer to surrounding surfaces. The advantages are significant and apart from a tighter bass response, overall imaging is enhanced and the monitors are able to always perform to their full potential. BM Compact mkIII and BM5 mkIII come with an ISO-L8R 155 stand. BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII come with ISO-L8R 200 stand.

A Complete Monitoring System
Renowned for sonic consistency across the product range, Dynaudio Professional near-fields and subwoofers are designed to work together. However the company also considers the broader workflow needs of professionals. These are supported by a range of accessories spanning new mounting solutions for larger studios and broadcasters to precision level controls for the desktop – the Volume Box for BM Compact mkIII, the TC Level Pilot for BM6 mk III and BM12 mkIII and of course the TC Electronic BMC-2 Monitor Controller.

Fred Speckeen, Global Brand Manager for Dynaudio Professional concludes: “We are tremendously proud of this next step in the evolution of the Dynaudio Professional product range, a brand that has been chosen by ear by the world’s most discerning studio professionals and broadcasters.“


The products will be available in May (North America) / April (Europe, rest of world), for a suggested US retail price of:
  • BM Compact mkIII: $629.99 USD.
  • BM5 mkIII: $729.99 USD.
  • BM6 mkIII: $899.99 USD.
  • BM12 mkIII: $1,229.99 USD.
  • BM9S II: $999.99 USD.
  • BM14S II: $1,849.99 USD.

Woooow Dynaudio speakers? Been a long time and seems that prices have been revisited as well. I remember a while back how expensive Dynaudio pairs were. Welcome back Dynaudio ;-)

Always loved the Dynaudio sound, probably it seems to be a next step ... I really hate the Namm-Musikmesse combo, they make me want to spend more money than I have XD.

I have been thinking about what means "BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII have been revoiced" ... revoiced like the old and praised BM6 MK1 ???

I have the BM6mkIII here to try out; I'm burning them in for the next 12 hours and will begin testing them out tomorrow. I'll report back after getting to use them a bit.

DSP specs ?

I think it's quite strange that while more and more monitors (including Dynaudio's new range) include DPSs, the very basic digital specifications (bit depth, sampling rate with or without oversampling) are not provided.

Do you mean "DSP"? There's no DSP in the updated BM series, just straight analog connectivity.

I got the information from here:
Dynaudio BM6 MKIII - Thomann Belgium

You made me doubt about this so I checked on Dynaudio's website and indeed I don't see any mention of a DSP there. So it's a bug from Thomann.

However other manufacturers do not provide the information for models where there is a DSP for sure. For instance Presonus for the Sceptre range.

You can check all DSP specs in the Presonus website. No DSP in mk3 Dyns.

The user's manual reports the quantization but not a single word about sampling rate.

From the link you have posted (brochure) :

"This exceptional performance is the result of an advanced coaxial design that works integrally with a 32-bit, 48 kHz, custom processor running Fulcrum Acoustic®’s TQ™ Temporal Equalization Technology."

No reviews on the new Dynaudio BM6 mkIII???
Old 12th August 2014

After a couple of weeks with the BM6mkIII in my room, I was sold. I just love the Dynaudio sound (have owned original BM5 passive back in the mid-90s, BM6A, BM6AmkII, BM12A) and found that the soft dome tweeter doesn't fatigue my ears like the Focals I'd been using would.

Mix translation to mastering has been perfect; no EQ has been necessary by my mastering engineer.

The included Isoacoustic stands replaced my Primacoustic Recoils, too. All-in-all, I think Dynaudio has a homerun on their hands. YMMV.

Thanks for your words bleen. What do you think about the "revoicing" statement, have they been revoiced like the mk1 or only different than the previous mk2?
Old 12th August 2014

It's been a while since I've had either in my studio, but to the best of my recollection, they are closer to the original BM6A than the mkII. I feel like there's less "hype" to the output, especially in the low end. Whatever they did, it really works and I'm incredibly happy with my decision.

I've had my bm6a mk3's for a few days now. It's takes a little longer to break them in but now.... they are sounding so smooth and the stereo imaging is amazing. I love them. Vey happy with my choice.

I'm really interested in getting the BM6 mkIII's to replace my Mackie Hr624 mk1's, going to see if the uk supplier does a loan service so I can A/B them.

Thanks for the review mate.

The following statement was a bit intriguing:

"The high upper limit to the frequency response is also apparent on first listen. A/B'd with Yamaha NS10s, the mkIIIs were simply too bright and almost harsh at times."

This is rather strange and would be a major difference from the older BM series, which have very smooth highs...I know you mentioned the break-in period, but my experience with Dynaudio BMs has been smoothness (and consequently no fatigue) right out of the box.

Cheers

Hi diogo_c

That's not my review. I found it on google.

I'm interested in both the BM Compact mkIII and BM5 mkIII. The Compact really intrigues me and on paper seems perfect for my room. But I'd like to read more reviews. Otherwise, I'm leaning towards other monitors for a possible purchase.
