Dali Zensor 5 5.1 Home Cinema Speaker Package
This package includes the Dali Zensor 1, Zensor 7, Zensor Vokal and E12F.
DALI ZENSOR 1
"These might be cheaper than their closest rivals, but don't discount them - you really need to hear the Zensor 1s." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.
When one of Scandinavia's premium loudspeaker manufacturers puts their mind to making a class-leading budget speaker, there's a fair chance that it's going to be pretty good but, with the Dali Zensor 1 it's better than that. Much, much better in fact! With rave reviews from across the world's hi-fi press, the Dali Zensor One is very much a top contender. Take a look at the construction components and it's not hard to see why.
Key to the Zensor's detailed yet refined and powerful yet tuneful sound quality is the bespoke wood fibre bass woofer. Of a design usually reserved for their more expensive models, the Zensor 1's bass cone gives a dynamic and precise sound that you'd usually expect to find from far more expensive speakers. Partnering this impressive bass unit is a similarly high performing treble unit. Soft dome construction gives upper notes a smooth yet precise sound. When taken as a whole the Zensor One is simply one of the most realistic sounding speakers at its price point.
Despite its budget price, the Zensor 1 is none too shabbily constructed, either. The solid cabinet has an attractive glossy front baffle, with recessed drive units for a smoother style. Thanks to the integrated wall bracket, it's practical too. Combined with its compact size, the bracket makes the Zensor 1 ideal as an AV satellite speaker as well as a quality stereo one.
Neat and stylish, engaging to listen to and affordable. Not for nothing has the Zensor won so many awards - prepare to be impressed!
DALI ZENSOR 7 BLACK ASH
"And how do the Danes do sonically? Nothing to complain about!" STEREO magazine.
When German hi-fi magazine, STEREO, reviewed the Dali Zensor 7 speakers, they awarded them a full five out of five stars. When it comes to providing a full range sound at an affordable price, it's hard to see how they could fail.
One of the main reasons for buying a larger floorstanding speaker is sheer bass power and dynamic response. The Zensor 7's don't disappoint. With a cabinet almost one metre tall and twin 7" bass cones, the Zensor 7 was always going to be a powerful contender. When compared to the smaller Zensor 5, the 7 goes lower, has greater depth and can sustain deep bass notes for longer. It also has an effortless dynamic reach that makes it ideal for all types of music from large scale orchestral to pulsating Dance music.
Yet what sets the Zensor 7 apart from other large speakers at its price is the quality of sound. The twin bass cones feature Dali's wood fibre construction that's usually only used in their more expensive designs. This lightweight yet rigid material helps give the Zensor 7 speakers a refined and detailed, as well as powerful sound. Partnering these impressive bass units is a similarly high performing treble unit. Soft dome construction gives upper notes a smooth yet precise sound. When taken as a whole the Zensor Seven is simply one of the most realistic sounding floorstanders at its price point - with the refinement to match the effortless power.
As you'd expect from this high quality Danish brand, the Zensor 7's are also exceptionally well made. The solid cabinet has an attractive glossy front baffle, with recessed drive units for a smoother style. Contrasting with the gloss black cabinet are the aluminium supports which give the design a stylish edge whilst also performing a practical function of support.
For a bigger sound in medium to large sized rooms, the Dali Zensor 7 is a force to be reckoned with.
DALI ZENSOR VOKAL BLACK
With its exquisite vocal timbre, the Dali Zensor Vokal speaker is amongst the best in its class.
Designed to be the perfect sonic match for the Dali Zensor range but also impressive as a stand-alone centre speaker in other brand home cinema systems, the Dali Zensor Vokal centre speaker uses Dali technologies to great effect.
Key to the natural vocals and accurate dialogue are the woofer cones. Made from a unique wood fibre material, these cones offer the perfect balance between light weight and rigidity. The outcome is an articulate mid-range that's especially expressive with vocals. Working in harmony with the woofers is a soft dome tweeter. This gives fine upper range detail whilst still managing to sound smooth and refined.
With its glossy black front baffle, the Zensor Vokal doesn't just blend well with the other Zensor speakers in terms of sound quality, but it's the perfect aesthetic match, too. Front porting allows the speaker to be used close to a wall.
Great speech comes naturally to the Dali Zensor Vokal.
DALI E12F BLACK
"A solid 170W of Class-D amplification is ample for even the largest room, and a downward-firing reflex port adds fixed-boundary reinforcement." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.
Partnered with the Dali Fazon 3 system, the E-12F subwoofer helped secure the system a five-star review in What Hi-Fi magazine. Considered one of the finest budget subwoofers from Dali in some time, the E-12F certainly doesn't want for critical praise.
Featuring a 12 inch, aluminium woofer unit, the Dali E-12F is capable of moving a great deal of air with piston-like efficiency. Aluminium is extremely light yet rigid, ensuring that the E-12F is both quick to respond yet also subtle enough to provide a textured bass response. Attached to the cone you'll find a quad layer voice coil and large magnet. These give the E12F not only great bass control but also long term reliability.
With its Class D, digital amplifier built-in, the E12F produces an immense 170 watts. This low distortion amplifier provides the bass cone with a powerful, well-balanced sound that works well even in the largest of rooms.
Situated on the rear panel of the E-12F you'll find controls for volume, phase and frequency cut-off. There's also the option of auto power for added ease of use. For a clean, purposeful look, the E-12F uses a magnetic grille fixing to give smooth lines when removed.
With Danish style and sound, the E12F is one thumpingly good subwoofer.
