Summary
The Dymension Series is Definitive Technologies' latest loudspeaker line, launched to replace its older 9000 Series of speakers. Four tower models feature a Bipolar speaker array for a diffuse, large-soundstage experience. All four towers (in addition to the flagship center channel) carry variations of an active subwoofer section paired with bass radiators. New to the Dymension Series is an Intelligent Bass Control feature that attenuates bass output while altering DSP across the entire speaker's driver array.

We were particularly impressed with the Dymension Series bass abilities and its home theater playback prowess.


Definitive Technology launched its all-new Dymension Series of high-performance loudspeakers several weeks ago. Harnessing the advantages of a bipolar speaker design and active low-end drivers, the Dymension Series gives enthusiasts access to an entirely unique sound experience loaded with low-end character. The series consists of four different floorstanding speakers, three center channels, and two topper/wall-mountable Atmos channels. The entry-level DM40 tower is priced at $999 each, while the flagship DM80 costs $2499 each. Center channel pricing starts at $799 (DM10) and tops out at $1499 for the DM40 powered speaker.

AV NIRVANA visited Masimo Consumer's headquarters and spent extensive time listening to the Dymension Series. This video review includes a look at the series's more important technologies, new drivers, and impressions of the speakers in action. Give it a watch to learn about Def Tech's unique sound approach with Dymension speakers!

DM80 Flagship Tower Speaker Features:
  • Fully Balanced, Adjustable Bipolar Array: Bipolar driver arrays direct more sound in more directions than traditional speakers for incredible depth-of-field and a truly enveloping listening experience. Bipolar effect can be adjusted to optimize for room placement.
  • Built-In 12” Powered Subwoofer: An integrated 12” subwoofer, powered by an all-new, highperformance 400W GaN FET amplifier, delivers clean, detailed bass that perfectly blends with mids and highs and feels consistent no matter where you sit.
  • BDSS System and Linear Response Waveguide: DM80’s four 5.25” mid/bass woofers feature our patented Balanced Double Surround System™ technology (BDSS™). BDSS improves midrange driver excursion and provides a wide, uniform soundstage with seamless bass/mid integration. A Linear Response Waveguide™ extends and smooths off-axis dispersion for great sound everywhere in the room.
  • Patented Intelligent Bass Control: Sophisticated digital processing seamlessly blends subwoofer output with mids and highs to provide powerful deep-bass performance without sacrificing midrange clarity. Bass will never get in the way of dialogue and other critical soundtrack elements.
  • DM90 Integrated Height Module Option: Available separately, a DM90 Atmos-certified and DTS:X-compatible height module connects to the top of the DM80 to extend sound above you for total sonic immersion and hyper-realistic overhead effects.
DM30 Flagship Center Channel Speaker Features:
  • Advanced Five-Driver Array: Four 5.25" BDSS midrange woofers and a 1" aluminum oxide tweeter deliver ultra-clear vocals with uncanny realism. Add DM30's integrated 8” powered subwoofer and its full-range immersive sound that draws you into the action every time.
  • Built-In 8” Powered Subwoofer: An integrated 8” powered subwoofer delivers clean, detailed bass that perfectly blends with mids and highs, anchoring voices and effects with rich, fullrange sound.
  • 3XR Architecture with Dual Bass Radiators: 3XR™ Architecture—introduced in our flagship Descend Series—combines a subwoofer and two passive radiators to produce huge, impactful bass that’s unrivaled in a center channel speaker. Get ready to experience low end you can feel.
  • BDSS System and Linear Response Waveguide: The DM30’s midrange woofers feature Definitive’s BDSS™, which improves excursion and provides superior midrange detail. Our patented Linear Response Waveguide™ extends off-axis dispersion for total sonic immersion.
