Executive Overview

Dynaudio unveiled their 30th anniversary floorstanding speakers called Sapphire. Beautifully outfitted with what looked to be a high gloss finish on a burled veneer, the Sapphire's drew all eyes to it. The design is certainly stunning. They weren't hooked up to anything though, in the middle of the show floor, we couldn't have told you much if they were. At $16,500 a pair, they are pricey and Dynaudio is keeping this limited run to 1000 pairs. The speaker was released online over the summer and Dynaudio is reporting that over a third of the run has been sold already. For more information, please visit www.dynaudio.com.
