dali ikon mk2 award

The EISA jury states the following:

Thanks to a comprehensive list of improvements, the second edition of DALI’s well-reviewed IKON-series of speakers represents much more than a subtle update. Valorized drivers, an enhanced finish, stronger enclosure construction and a completely new crossover network ensure a sound that towers over similarly priced rivals.

Featuring Helicon 400 MK2 in The Absolute Sound

helicon 400 mk2 the absolute sound

According to the reviewer, Dick Olsher, Goldilocks would be pleased, because “The HELICON’s presentation consistently felt just right. It is the only speaker I’ve auditioned to date at this price point that I find suitable for realistic reproduction of orchestral music”. He further describes the speakers as a fine wine that continues to improve over the first couple of weeks of break-in and reaching the right level of textual silkiness.

Brilliant New Budget Dalis Demand a Listen

zensor1-whathifi-01

These speakers represent a new entry-level for the Dali. While you never expect really affordable speakers to have the sort of styling that really gets the juices flowing, the Zensor 1’s compact dimensions, unfussy styling and quality fit and finish make for a very positive first impression.

Significantly more positive than that, though, is how they sound. Play Eric Bibb’s Saucer ‘n’ Cup – an old test favorite – and what immediately strikes you is how crisp and precise these Zensors are, and how assuredly they deal with the complex, organic dynamics of Bibb’s playing. You feel every strum, and the harder plucks on his acoustic guitar really stand out. Bibb’s playing and singing is all about soul – and that’s what the Zensors give you.

An airy, spacious presentation

They provide a wide, open soundstage, and it’s worth toeing them in a little more than usual in order to focus vocals. Even then, the presentation is airy and spacious, with nice separation to instruments. Putting them against a wall increases the bass, and while that slightly diminishes the spot-on tonal balance of the presentation, the bass remains tight and punchy, so if you prefer a weightier flavor you may actually prefer them positioned in such a way, and they can in fact be wall-mounted if you so wish.

What’s also impressive is that, while the dalis are detailed and precise, they’re not so clinical and analytical that they make poor recordings sound horrible. The Strokes’ Angles, for instance, is kept well under control and remains eminently listenable at high volumes, yet the Zensors leave the essential lo-fi charm intact.

Perhaps the biggest compliment we can pay them is that they don’t sound like a pair of budget speakers- they’re more detailed and precise than that, more grown up and more downright musical – and that makes them a serious bargain.

DALI FAZON F5 wins EISA Award!

Fazon F5 Eisa award-01

The FAZON F5 is now officially winner of the international EISA Award, “European Audio Design 2011-2012”.

Last year, the DALI IKON 6 MK2 won the EISA, and DALI is now very proud to hear that the new FAZON F5 has won this acclaimed award for 2011-2012. The DALI FAZON F5 is a unique product that has already attracted a lot of attention due to its brilliant sound capabilities and sculptural design unified in one product. The international committee behind EISA states the following about the FAZON F5 on their website:

“If you think all hi-fi loudspeakers are built into rectangular wooden boxes, then DALI makes us all think again with its stylish FAZON F5. Rather than use orthodox materials, DALI, the Danish speaker specialist, has worked with die-cast aluminium to achieve a highly novel and elegant loudspeaker shape.

Not only conceived to be pleasing to the eye, its curved cabinet is also ideal for minimizing internal reflections while offering great rigidity. Not just a pretty face, the FAZON F5 also benefits from DALI’s tried-and-tested wood-fibre cones and light silk dome tweeter. Available in high gloss red, black and white, this 86cm-tall sculpture comes with a purpose-built stand that allows your cables to be hidden from sight.”
