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.Combine this 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 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.
I have to say, when I first set these up they didn't make a good first impression. Seemed weak, especially in the bass. An hour or two of running in, though, and they were great. Good solid bass and quite detailed at the top end. Also, they go loud. Right now, my amp is nowhere near halfway right now and the room is gently throbbing around my head.My other speakers are KRKs, I'd say that these have slightly more roll off on the highs. That's perfectly expected given the different task these were made for and it makes the listening experience less tiring.
