The Dali Opticon 6 is one of the great speakers from the Dali range. It has won praise from reviewers both for it's quality of build, the look and finish and more importantly - it is praised as being a great sounding speaker for either HiRes Hi-Fi or multi channel surorund sound home theatre set-ups. it has won numerous awards and is available in either a traditional Black ash finish or a classic Walnut wood finish.
The DALI OPTICON 6 is a medium sized floorstanding speaker, designed to be placed close to the wall with no toe in so it fits in great either side of an A/V cabinet facing straight on. The Opticon 6 is an exceptionally stylish performance powerhouse thanks to the inclusion of the Dual Dali 6½ inch low-loss Wood Fibre Woofers for room filling bass and midrange duties which are coupled to the Dali Opticon Hybrid Soft Dome/Ribbon Tweeter Array. The Hybrid Tweeter Array really helps deliver a wider soundstage that is especially useful in Home Theatre duties to deliver a sound that comes from beyond where the speakers are placed. The Opticon 6 does image very realistically as well as having a long term listening tone that is designed to live with for many years and deliver an unfatiguing sound that Dali has become well known for. DALI has a long and well proven tradition for using their hybrid tweeter array, it is a combination of a dome tweeter working together with a ribbon tweeter for an amazing rendering of the high frequencies, and a dispersion of high frequency sounds that outperform nearly all other tweeter technologies.
The Hybrid Tweeter Module features an extremely smooth and wide horizontal dispersion - one of our sound design trademarks. Even the detailing of the face plate of the tweeter module is designed for optimal horizontal dispersion.
The ribbon tweeter features a broad frequency band and superb dispersion in the higher frequencies. Gently rolled in above 10 kHz, the ribbon reaches full contribution from 14 kHz to well beyond 30 kHz, which makes it perfect for HiRes music or movie soundtracks. Equipped with a rear chamber fitted with rigid bracing, the ribbon is shielded from the disruptive influence of the woofers. The DALI ribbon tweeter is a true master in horizontal distribution of high frequencies, and a superb partner for the soft dome tweeter’s unique ability to reproduce frequencies from 2 kHz upwards.
The Opticon 6 (like all the Opticon Speaker range) is hand assembled in DALI's factory in Denmark and, unlike many other loudspeaker manufacturers, all of the components in the Opticon 6 are also manufactured in-house. Each driver has unique elements only available in DALI loudspeakers. The midrange/bass driver uses DALI's SMC Magnet (Soft Magnetic Compound) instead of more traditional hard magnets. SMC has the unique ability to deliver high magnetic conductivity coupled with very low electrical conductivity which offers a significant lowering of the coloration of the reproduced sound, especially over hours of use as the magnet system heats up. The tweeter in the OPTICON 6 is the aforementioned soft dome / ribbon hybrid array. All of these design choices have been made with the realisation that many people now listen to a wider range of music and movies and TV shows than ever before, and so a speaker that is good for Hi-Fi should also be good for Home Theatre use too. In a nutshell, the Dali Opticon 6 is engineered to sound great, perform above expectations, and to continue to do so reliably and fuss free for many years whether used in a 2 channel HiRes Hi-Fi system or as part of a multi speaker surround sound home theatre system. Being a reasonably compact floorstander (around 1m tall) enables the Opticon 6 to slot into small to medium rooms and look and sound great whilst doing so.
