Dynaudio Emit 10 vs. Evoke 10


I currently have a pair of Dynaudio Emit 10 speakers on solid stands with a tube amp in a small room. They sound quite nice as set up. I’m confident my tube amp can contribute more to better sound than the Emits reveal. Does anyone know if the next model up, the Evoke 10, is a noticeable upgrade or only a slightly better version of the Emits?

Slightly better.
Noticeable upgrades are hard to come by in this game.I do notice how close to the back wall they are,Dynaudios like to breath & you will probably get better bass definition(not quantity)& better imaging & staging by simply moving them out another foot or so..
 How about tubes?Still using factory supplied?If yes a change of the small signal tubes to NOS should yield a really nice improvement in treble quality,midrange texture & tone & maybe better bass tone..
Room is very small 9' x 13', and speakers are respectable 12" from wall so I'm sitting 6' away in midfield. Amp tubes are not stock. What I'm inquiring about is the difference between the two speakers if you've heard them to enlighten me. A plus would be if you know if it is just cabinet size and maybe x-over that is the change or drivers too. Thank you freedriver.
Why not try out a pair from Crutchfield they give you a generous 60 day return policy.
That is an option. I was trying to get feedback from owners before going to the trouble and possible return. It's there if I need it.
Understood, but nobody has your ears and knows exactly what you like. Having owned Emit 20 once myself I recall it’s a fine speaker.
the Evokes cost almost 2 x the Emits, is it worth it?,
Depends 😂 
 
The only difference Dynaudio specs is the tweeter,moving up to one with the newest coating process.At twice the asking price I would venture to assume crossover components have been upgraded as well as internal bracing,something Dyn is known to do as you climb the ladder.I have owned Dynaudio Audience 42,Audience 52 & 52SE & lastly Excite X14..What I noticed as I moved up was in the bass,easier to drive,better controlled & sweeter tone through the midbass..
 Is there a certain aspect of their performance you want to change?If it's simply upgrade for the sake of upgrading I would wait & save until I could get into a pair of Special 40's which are,IMO,one of the great deals in audio & a world class speaker..
Thank freediver for that info. The bass has nice punch but could be a little deeper and tighter, and the bass is a little softer as compared to the highs. The midrange a little recessed with vocals. Generally they seem a bit closed in and boxy, but I’m nit picking a budget speaker. The previous generation Excite x14 seems comparable to the Emit 10 in size, looks and performance.

The special 40s do seem quite nice but $3500 is too much for me. 

Just wanted to bump this, I recently purchased the Emit 20 and am amazed at how much detail there is along with solid bass that goes much lower than the specs suggest. Piano sounds extremely accurate. From what I’ve read, these are using the Evoke tweeter, similar woofer, but no veneer, made in China and a different crossover. 
 

I also have been curious what you get with the Evoke, but the amount of open box listings I see for those makes me think this is a bare bones Evoke and not worth the trouble going up double the price.

Next year will be Dynaudio’s 45th anniversary… Special 45? That would probably be the next model I would look at from them.

I’ve read the Evoke 20 is a step up from the Emit with a smoother response. Some reviewers have made this there go to bookshelf speakers. I have the first generation Emit 10 which I like because of the exposed driver fasteners vs. the later version w/ a trim piece covering them. It fills a small room w/ ease using SS and tube amps, but had trouble filling a large 18’x22’ space with a big sound. Your Emit 20 probably fills a large room does this better than my 10s.
