Dynaudio Music is a family of four, one touch, “intelligent” wireless speakers
The accompanying free app for iOS and Android uses Dynaudio’s Music Now algorithm to learn up to five users’ musical tastes and play automatically generated playlists with one touch of a button on the speaker. Each Music speaker has five presets. These can be filled with anything accessible from the app: smart Music Now playlists (from multiple user profiles), internet radio stations, albums, artists and more. Online content from selected services can be accessed straight from the app too, making things even more convenient. Built-in RoomAdapt technology senses where the speaker has been placed (in a corner, up against a rear wall or in free space) and “optimises performance”.
There are four speakers in the family. All are active (each driver has a dedicated class-D amplifier specifically tuned to match it) and they all have slightly different features to help them fit different lifestyles and situations.
All the speakers use Dynaudio’s proprietary MSP cone material in their woofers and midrange drivers (the same material used across the company’s entire product family, right up to the range-topping Evidence Platinum series). Their soft-dome tweeters are based on Dynaudio’s high-end speakers.

All the speakers in the family can stream via Wi-Fi, aptX Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay (they’re also AirPlay 2-ready) and can access DLNA devices on users’ home networks. They all have USB inputs for iOS audio and charging iOS devices, and can accept 3.5mm analogue inputs. The Music 5 and Music 7 add digital optical inputs to the mix (both support signals up to 24bit/96kHz), while the Music 7 also has an HDMI connector with Audio Return Channel to turn it into a soundbar.
Up to six speakers can be connected at a time and arranged into multiroom groups or controlled individually from the Dynaudio app. Each model is available in light grey, dark grey, red and blue cloth finishes, custom-made by Danish textile house Gabriel, and includes a one-piece brushed aluminium surround on the Music 5 and Music 7. The front grille cloths on the Music 5 and Music 7 are interchangeable too. Both the Music 5 and Music 7 can be wall-mounted using a dedicated steel wall-bracket.
