While the Confidence speakers’ advanced technology and unparalleled sound quality remains unchanged since the performance updates that the current generation of models received when introduced in 2011, the new Confidence Platinum design aesthetic features all aluminium parts now finished in satin black. The aluminium tweeter plate received 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.
As a further refinement the Confidence Platinum models are available in the select finishes established with the Evidence Platinum:
Created and hand-built by Dynaudio in Denmark, the Confidence Platinum models are available in other finishes upon request via special order.
The C1 can be mounted directly onto the Dynaudio Stand6 for a synergy of performance and design.
About the Confidence series
The Dynaudio Confidence series is one of the most well-established high-end loudspeaker series on the market, having received many awards and accolades over the years. When the Confidence II/Signature series was introduced in 2011, the sound quality benchmark was pushed to an even higher level: The Esotar2 tweeter was improved via the latest Precision Coating to achieve even finer, more detailed high frequency performance, while the crossover and internal cabling received upgraded components and materials first used in the legendary Dynaudio Sapphire and Consequence Ultimate Edition models.
All these improvements remain in the new Confidence Platinum, combined with the distinctive appearance of the cabinet finished in piano lacquer and all aluminium parts finished in satin black.
Finest Components, fine-tuned to perfection
Every Confidence model incorporates Dynaudio's best tweeter, the renowned Esotar². In its current version, the 28mm fabric soft is further perfected with Dynaudio’s Precision Coating, which served to improve the exceptionally smooth response and the authentic reproduction of finest musical details.
The Confidence woofers feature ultra-light, thermally stable aluminium coils wound on special Kapton formers. Kapton is a high-tech synthetic material which remains extremely light while being extraordinarily heat resistant and stiff. The advanced voice coil construction combined with the Magnesium Silicate Polymer diaphragm and the extra-rigid die-cast aluminium basket combine for a most precise and dynamic bass performance.
The drive units are mounted onto a distinctive sound-optimized baffle. The shape has been designed to reduce unwanted early reflections at the corners, while the baffle itself is further decoupled from the cabinet with a low-resonance medium-density fibre-board between baffle and cabinet. The tweeters are mounted onto a solid aluminium block, itself embedded into the baffle, to achieve the most rigid, low-resonance foundation. These combined efforts ensure perfect sound radiation as well as a dynamic and powerful sound even at higher volumes.
The crossover in the Confidence Platinum features the latest ceramic resistors, air core coils and high-quality capacitors along with the new thin film resistors and new internal wiring incorporated into the Signature/II update. The result is an even better, more authentic reproduction of musical details, especially with delicate sounds from strings, piano and singing voices.
