Dynamikks Aton 8DC & 10DC

The Aton 8DC & 10DC loudspeaker series have replaced the DynamiKKs Athos series as of October 2023.


ATON is practically identical in all technical aspects and in sonic performance to ATHOS. The primary difference is the new cabinetry that is more similar in its aesthetic to the Monitor series. Concurrent to the transition from Athos to Aton, a number of design improvements that had been in development were incorporated into the new Aton Series.


Quite unexpectedly, these changes translated into a ~15% cost reduction which we decided to pass on to you!


As such, The ATON series, as did the ATHOS series, continues to deliver what others only promise ... a rousing reproduction that takes you into the deep emotional experience of music with all its richness ... and all this:

... at what is now an astonishing Value Proposition!


Real dynamics, wonderful timbres and powerful rhythms, coupled with the finest detailed information let you experience music as something absolutely sublime. You will then be able to understand why music has accompanied humanity from the earliest times.

If you on are on this page, I need to underscore that the loudspeakers from the DynamiKKs Line are some of the very best we have heard in a very long time ... and we are really difficult to please ! Listening to these, from the very first notes, was a total shocker.


In view of their absolute performance, we can't get over the ridiculous prices either --  in this case $13K ... a "no brainer" situation. Then, it gets better ... the awesome German finish, the attention to small details, the packaging, the versatility.


... And these speakers are a sonic "Chameleon". Let us explain : Sophisticated and delicate Classical ? ... excellent. Jazz, Vocals as well ... but, then ask it to do some really serious Rock and get vicious and heavy ... when one knows that most speakers really cant "do it all" ? You better be strapped in to your seat, because its going to come at you like a freight train :=)) Hint : They are not called "DynamiKKs" for no reason.


Enough said !


Oh, and don't worry too much about amp compatibility ... 8W SET, Big Tone 22-30W DHT, 100-250W Hybrid ... as long as the amp is of appropriate high quality ...  the DynamiKKs speakers ... all of them ... are very "accommodating".


If you are wondering if the Monitor 12, or the models from the DynamiKKs Aton Series, are any different ... they are not. The Monitor 12 is a tad scaled up vs the Monitor 10 (for larger rooms) ... and the ATON speakers -- 8DC and 10DC -- are even more impressive, and more pricey of course, ... but are still accessible at not-too-crazy prices ... The Aton 8DC [$23K] and 10DC [$28K] can be had for under $25K and $30K respectively ... but in really belong to a select sub-set of speakers from the $40K to $70K  fraternity !


Design Philosophy & Topology 

"What the microphone is to the recording room,

the loudspeaker is to the playback room."


The DynamiKKs are monitor-type loudspeakers and deliver exactly what the name implies : tonal neutrality, dynamic accuracy and the capability to reveal even the finest micro details submerged within  the texture of a recording.


Great attention to detail in design and to the manufacturing process enables the musical performance to be portrayed as a whole, with the image and the tonal balance remaining stable, irrespective of listening distance or listening volume!


This ambitious goal can only be achieved when the loudspeaker  forms a point source, thus effectively mimicking the behavior and performance characteristics of the recording microphone.

Our custom-built coaxial drivers cast a wonderfully coherent image throughout the listening room ... one hears real live instruments playing real music! Furthermore, the listener does not have to be "nailed to a sweet spot“, as is the case with "arrayed" speakers ... a seating position where the obvious faults of the array topology are minimized, but remain nonetheless noticeable.


The high efficiency of our monitor-type speakers, combined with their linear impedance, offers the amplifier an easy load. This makes Dynamikks speakers suitable for all amplifier types, from low output triodes to large and powerful transistor or class D amps.
Using large diameter drivers powered by huge magnets improves the air loading and greatly reduces intermodulation distortion ...


... which is the inevitable plague suffered by small area long throw speakers ... Have you ever seen a small acoustic bass instrument ?


Summing these factors together, we have a very different, truly accurate loudspeaker far removed from current "high end fashion" crowd. Let us be very clear : A Dynamikks is a loudspeaker for the seasoned listener who wants to experience the full beauty and emotional impact which recordings keep secret until revealed.

Our DynamiKKs Monitor models have been around since 2008. The fact that coaxial technology has since then been used more and more by other manufacturers, is an encouragement to us. We are honored that our way of interpreting this design approach has even given rise to "direct imitators".


In our latest and most advanced designs, the coaxial chassis of the Aton 8DC and the Aton 10DC are beautifully executed. In these models we introduced carbon fiber-reinforced paper cones for the bass / midrange, and a unique sandwich polyester membrane for the high-frequency pressure chamber drivers. These truly high-tech features have also been augmented by incredibly powerful magnetic drive made possible by extra powerful neodymium tablets.


These exceptional coaxials are supported by more than just "adequate" bass ... it's " strong as a bear" ... highly resilient, ... super fast ... deep and bouncy light ... a combination of desirable attributes that are not easy to fulfill at the same time


Typical high-end chassis -- of any kind -- fail at least one criterion. 

Only real professional studio technology can help here. Technology of this kind has been used by us for over 25 years and has always made the difference versus most of our competitors ... which is reason enough to continue with it now.


The DynamiKKs Aton 8DC and the Athos 10DC versions meet all needs : These speakers were conceived for the tube amplifier clan ... as well as for those of us who prefer potent transistor technology.


Aton 8DC versus Aton 10DC

So what is the difference between the Aton 8DC and the Aton 10DC ?

Essentially, they are the "same concept" that has been translated into two "scales"... 

The Aton 8DC implements an 8" Coaxial driver with a 10" Bass driver, whilst the Aton 10DC represents a "step-change" with a larger 10" coaxial and a 12" bass driver, ... the latter requiring a larger cabinet.

Essentially, the larger (and heavier) model will be more at home in larger rooms that will require its "scaling" abilities.

What the say ...

Carsten Bussler - Hifi Statement


"With the exhibitors, I very benevolently scheduled to meet Ulf Moning at Dynamikks - the name says it all. He presented his loudspeakers with a tube amplifier that he built exclusively for demonstration purposes ...


The performance I experienced was clearly "THE" highlight of these HiFi show ... worth it! ... The Athos 10 from Dynamikks is definitely one of the best speakers in the world! "




Wolfgang Kemper - Hifi Statement


"At Dynamikks I first experienced the Athos 10 with Gene Ammon's album Bass Tenor and the track "My Romance". I immediately understood why my colleague Carsten was so excited.


I was able to totally immerse myself in this pleasantly warm music with its beautiful, caressing tones. The instruments were arranged in a very realistic way, and were easy to follow in detail. With Ulf's tube amplifier for the mids and highs, the partially active system had loads of dynamic reserves ...  dynamic reserves, however, that it uses with great sensitivity and an assertive confidence.


Christina Pluhar's interpretation of Henry Purcell's music is very enjoyable because of her pleasant and clearly articulated voice and the silky, precise background instrumentation. 

In Gustav Mahler's symphonic work, the Dynamikks create an impressive sense of musical tension and drama, and even manage to recreate a realistic and sensitive differentiation of the steel triangle in the midst of the dynamically swelling large orchestra.


This is definitely a loudspeaker for high level musical enjoyment. "

There will be more reviews very soon post-Covid ... and based on all the reactions to date, they will no doubt sing the praises of the Aton 8DC and Aton 10DC ... we can't wait !
