"We wanted to do something special to celebrate our 30th anniversary in business," said Dynaudio's Michael Manousselis, "so we created the limited edition—only 1000 will be made—$16,500/pair, three-way, four-driver, floorstanding Sapphire loudspeaker. The Sapphire uses our finest technology in drivers, including the soft-dome Esotar2 tweeter and two 8” Evidence-grade woofers with magnesium-silicate diaphragms. The cabinet is designed to have no parallel surface, with the two-toned cabinet featuring 12 distinct surface planes and twenty-four adjoining lines"
The loudspeaker was displayed silently on a rotating platform in the LVCC's South Hall. As it turned around, I could see the signature of Dynaudio's CEO, Werner Erenholtz, just below its 11/1000 serial number. "Dynaudio is the second company I've visited just this morning that has put out a limited-edition speaker to celebrate an anniversary," I said, " This is a very nice idea."
"Glad you think so, Larry, "said Michael, "I believe they must have gotten the idea from us!"
