Default Contour 20 30 60?

Hi wanted to Ask Dynaudio released contour 20 30 60
It was clearly on there web site.
Now there is contour20i 30i 60i in such a short time what’s the difference also?
I see older name being big discount for the 20 30 60 which is only been our a short time.

The Contour 20, 30, and 60 series were introduced 4 years ago, in 2016.

The new "i" series feature a new Esotar2i tweeter design derived from the new Confidence line, and improved crossover network and XO components. The woofers are new and the midrange has an improved cup subassembly.

Just a note: While other speaker companies use the same driver (e.g. a dome tweeter) in different models or size speakers, every driver in every Dynaudio is specifically designed for that specific loudspeaker. So, for example, an Esotar 2 tweeter in a Confidence is not the same Esotar 2 in a Contour; they are each designed and engineered specifically for each specific loudspeaker, even though they have the same name.

There is another difference: the previous Contour line was designed before Dynaudio built their Jupiter test facility; by subjecting the new Contour i series to that room they've found out that quite some improvements to the speaker line were still possible.

Well, you know what they say..."Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana."
