According to Danish speaker builder DALI "music is art and the recording is the canvas on which musicians paint. Because of this we at DALI believe the experience of listening to music should be the aural equivalent of walking through a great art gallery, the music untouched and played out exactly as the artist originally intended, yet also enhanced by its surroundings and presentation. This is the end we challenged our own 'audio artists' to achieve. The result is dubbed Opticon."
The range combines the clean, cutting-edge lines of Danish design with a combination of both tried-and-tested and new technologies, the DALI Opticon is a seven-strong range of stunning speakers consisting of the Opticon 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, LCR and VOKAL. Available in silk matte white, black or walnut finishes and with high-gloss white or black front baffles, all models feature DALI’s own woofer and tweeter modules, plus its proprietary SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) pole piece.
