DALI Opticon 1 Bookshelf Speakers
Small but perfectly formed, the DALI OPTICON 1 stand-mount speaker is curiously capacious with a compact cabinet that, despite its dimensions, holds almost five litres of air allowing for greater sympathetic resonance and adding to the pitch-perfect power of this deceptively mighty model.
The mounting of the drivers and the final tests and approvals on each and every speaker is also handled directly at our own assembly lines in our Danish factory.
All elements of the DALI drivers are designed, produced and manufactured in-house in DALI.
DALI MDF CABINETS
Keeping the manufacturing of the OPTICON series firmly in the hands of DALI we utilize our large and efficient woodworking facility in Denmark to handle everything from cutting out the Medium Density Fibre board (MDF) cabinet to applying the vinyl.
In the OPTICON woofer magnet motor system the pole piece is purely constructed of SMC. SMC’s unique ability to deliver a high magnetic conductivity and a very low electrical conductivity delivers all the wanted qualities of a really good speaker magnet without the traditional downsides.
The DALI OPTICON 1 is a compact stand mount loudspeaker, designed to be placed close to the wall or mounted on it. It combines its almost 5 litres of air capacity with a rear-mounted bass port, a 4 ¾ inch low-loss Wood Fibre Woofer, a 26 mm ultra-light Soft Dome Tweeter and gold-plated terminals and what the DALI OPTICON 1 delivers is the perfect balance of clear, detailed midrange and an impressive tight bass that belies its size.
The OPTICON 1 features the same low-loss Wood Fibre Woofer found in our flagship EPICON series, alongside our unique SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) magnet motor system and a brand new Soft Dome Tweeter developed for the OPTICON series, all of which works together along with a individual bass reflex port for the woofer to produce audio exactly as the recording artist originally envisioned it.
