The speaker market is unprecedentedly crowded and saturated. On the one hand, that’s an advantage – there’s a lot of choice and tough competition keeps prices down – but it’s also incredibly difficult to make a choice: there’s just too much. Fortunately, there are many reviews to be found online, so you can at least […]
The world of cinema and custom install is very different from that of traditional hi-fi. Custom Install is, however, a strongly emerging market. For years. Just look at the range of all major brands. Where first bookshelfs and floorstanders dominated, you now see more and more in-wall and active models. The wishes and demands of […]
On Sunday, February 28, 2021, we did another Live test. This time with integrated amplifiers between 1200 and 1500 euros. As usual we wrote to all manufacturers that are in our system with a model that would fit in this test. Unfortunately there is a worldwide shortage of parts – especially chips – which makes […]
Small, smaller, smallest. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when we take a look at the very modest Dali Menuet SE monitors. They are the smallest (25x15x23cm) audiophile speakers that we have seen; smaller even than the Dali Oberon 1 that we checked a while ago. And also smaller than our own Cabasse […]
At the iEar 2019 we were already introduced to the active Dali Rubicon 2C aka the active Rubicons. It was a showstopper indeed. HOW can that much sound pressure come from those little cabinets? The wow factor is definitely high. Does a good first impression also lead to a good review? Please read on!
What a speaker. The DALI Phantom 280S is truly a monstrous in-wall. The sound is complete, refined and dynamic. That makes the Phantom ideal for music. But also in movies it shines. It can transform like a Cameleon. Perfect. Though it’s not a cinemaspeaker par excellence. It doesn’t reach the deepest bass. Although his size does suggest so. However: when it comes to music, we don’t miss it and we especially enjoy the enormous stage that the Phantom 280S sets up. A worthy replacement for a sturdy, high-quality floor stand. Alpha Approved!
No, it is not the famous artist, although these Danish audiophiles can also be called artists, because they make beautiful speakers. Dali stands for Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries. A company that started in 1983 in Denmark.
The Danes have built up a wide range of beautiful loudspeakers. From the smallest book halves to very large floor-standing types. Something for everyone.
Dali’s slogan is: in admiration of music. Now that sounds very sweet, but with Dali this is not an empty statement. Dali still makes and assembles a lot by hand. And that’s just good to hear!
