opticon 2--- Call for Price
French ON-Mag has tested the DALI OPTICON 2, which they think has “a very serious design that leaves nothing to chance and is able to hold the power without making a false note.”
The OPTICON 2 has received the recommendation “referenz” by AREA DVD.
After testing the DALI OPTICON 2, audioFi.net highlights the loudspeakers as having a “well-balanced sound that hits the right notes without highlighting any major shortcomings. Excellent soundstaging and imaging.”
Hi-Fi World has taken a look at the DALI OPTICON 2 and finds that “the OPTICON 2s […] sound rather larger than their size would suggest – presenting a wide and expansive soundstage.” And they add: “No, you don’t get the absolute impact of the very bottom octaves that a big floorstander will give you but neither do the DALIs leave you feeling you are missing much. Instead they beguile with a nice, rich presentation.”
The German hi-fi website, i-fidelity.net has tested The OPTICON 2’s, which they find are compact and great performers when it comes to converting sound.
The OPTICON 2’s 6½ inch woofer and the more voluminous cabinet make this loudspeaker a true 2-way compact performer. The size of the woofer is matched with a large 28 mm soft dome tweeter to bring out every detail in the audio signal.
Exactingly engineered to extract every last nuance from your music, the use of DALI’s unique SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) magnet motor system (originally developed for the EPICON range) means audio that comes almost completely free from distortion thanks to the SMC’s low-level electrical conductivity. Expect nothing but a dynamic, well-defined and powerful audio reproduction from this loudspeaker.
Available in striking White Matt Satin, Black and Walnut finishes and with high-gloss white or black front baffle, the OPTICON 2 is small in scale but big on performance perfection. A part of the EISA award winning OPTICON 5.1 system together with the OPTICON 6 and the OPTICON VOKAL.
