Pro Monitoring for the Home Studio
Monitoring in an untreated environment is never ideal. But the Dynaudio LYD series is making clean sound for the home or project studio a reality. Dual Class D power amps feed a total of 130 watts into a powerful 8" driver (80W) and smooth soft-dome tweeter (50W) for accurate sound reproduction. And three switches make it quick to find your room's best sound. First, a Position switch filters out reflective interference when placed within 20" of a wall. Next, a Sound Balance selector increases or reduces brightness depending on your room's character - great for moving between rooms with treated and bare walls. And finally, a three-way Bass Extension switch gives you control of your Dynaudio LYD-8's low end in 10Hz increments.

As for lyd 8 is concerned, as mentioned they can go down to 45hz it's not quite enough for 8inch woofer. It's very odd. Will be waiting for the first closer look about these new line.
In comparison to the 8040 - my personal opinion after hearing them side by side (including the LYD7) is that the Genelec's are better for listening to music but the LYD's are better for mixing as they are extremely unflattering. The specs from BM vs LYD series are a mystery to me as the LYD's...
