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!
As one of the last manufacturers without headphones in the range, DALI seemed to have forgotten the portable hi-fi lovers for a long time. That’s where the Danes now change with the DALI IO series of headphones. We are testing the DALI IO-6, an over-ear wireless headphone with active noise reduction.
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!
