Beautiful sound all around

The Opticon 1 MK2 speakers are DALI's lowest profile bookshelf model in the Opticon Series — the company's least expensive speakers to be made in Denmark. From the ultra-light soft-dome tweeter, to the wood-fiber woofer, and even the crossover, DALI's goals are low coloration and wide dispersion. The first is important because you want to hear your music the way it's supposed to sound, and the second because you're not always sitting in the sweet spot.

In fact, DALI is so committed to their wide-dispersion approach, the company recommends that you don't "toe-in" these speakers toward your listening position. You'll get clearer, less-distorted sound, they explain, with the speakers firing straight ahead, and their cabinets parallel to the wall behind them.

Fills your compact spaces with sound

Designed to take advantage of smaller room acoustics, a pair of Opticon 1 MK2s will deliver a soundstage with real depth. DALI suggests that they can retain their expansive and articulate output even when placed as close as 2 centimeters (less than an inch) from the wall.

DALI also carefully designed these speakers for a seamless handoff between the drivers. The woofer's stiff, lightweight construction — a blend of fine-grain paper pulp reinforced with wood fibers — has an inviting sonic signature. And the 1-1/8" tweeter also reproduces relatively low frequencies — for a tweeter — so that it overlaps with the woofer in the most musical manner.

Further rounding out the low end, DALI's Dual Flare port design minimizes turbulence with careful regulation of the airflow determined by the port diameter and cabinet tuning frequency. It's mounted on the rear of the cabinet, but it fires downward to allow placement close to a wall.

Patented distortion-reducing technology

The patented SMC (soft magnetic compound) woofer magnet pole pieces in DALI's Opticon line significantly reduce mechanical distortion, and help create a relaxed, uncolored midrange. You'll hear a surprising amount of detail, without fatiguing your ears.

Introduce yourself to Danish speaker mojo

DALI — Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries — has been making high-end speakers since 1983. The Opticon is their most affordable made-in-Denmark line, and we think it offers great bang for your buck. They're assembled in pairs by a single DALI technician, to ensure visual and acoustic matching. Tight vinyl-dressed, high-density MDF cabinets, with internal bracing and acoustic damping material throughout, all but eliminate resonance. This helps the speaker "disappear," and the music come alive.
