Dali Opticon Vokal MK2 Centre Speaker
The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is specifically voiced to play the centre channel role, but at the same time it displays all the characteristic qualities that enable it to dovetail perfectly in a full OPTICON MK2 audio visual system.
The centre channel offers a level of performance unavailable from any other OPTICON model. It combines immense low frequency bandwidth, volume potential and dynamic accuracy with the extraordinary detail and clarity that arises from the use of a dedicated midrange driver. High frequencies from the hybrid tweeter are explicitly detailed and informative yet simultaneously smooth and endlessly listenable.
The enclosure dimensions and proportions are specifically configured to enable its installation in audio-visual furniture units, and its front facing reflex ports mean that even fully enclosed mounting is feasible.
This makes it perfect for placement up against a wall underneath the TV or projector screen or even hidden away in a HiFi furniture when not in use, which it also has been specifically designed for - a nice feature for aesthetically minded home theatre owners.
The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is the perfect partner for any speaker in the OPTICON MK2 series, with the same level of detail and coherence – but also powerful enough to be used even with the OPTICON 8 MK2.
The manufacture of the entire series remains fully Danish - as with the MK1 series. Built at our factory in Denmark; from components produced in-house or sourced from the best specialist manufacturers locally and further afield.
The SMC used in OPTICON MK2's magnet motor system has very high magnetic permeability and very low electrical conductivity. It works primarily by minimising eddy currents in the magnet system pole piece. This improves flux linearity, reducing the magnetic hysteresis. Resulting in a significant reduction of electro-acoustic distortion.
The newly introduced OPTICON MK2 Dual Flare technique brings port design into the realm of aerodynamics - with exit and entry flares carefully designed to minimise turbulence. Dual Flare enables OPTICON MK2 reflex ports to remain laminar and work effectively to reinforce low frequency performance to a significantly higher volume level than would otherwise be possible.
ASSEMBLED IN PAIRS
Speakers used and enjoyed in pairs should also be built as pairs! Our manufacturing process is designed to ensure that stereo pairs of speakers are built and tested sequentially by a single manufacturing technician, using components taken in the same order from the same batch. It’s a process that helps ensure ultimate visual and acoustic pair matching.
MADE IN DENMARK
Manufacture of the OPTICON MK2 series has been retained firmly at our Danish factory. Our in-house woodworking facility handles everything from cutting the MDF enclosure panels to applying the surface finishes. Assembly by hand, testing and quality approval on each and every speaker is also handled on our own assembly lines.
