DALI Oberon 5 Compact Floorstanding Speakers
The rounded edges and rustic fabric of these NEW DALI front grilles add a lighter and more contemporary visual look to the OBERON series. This look is enhanced by the elegantly shaped aluminium base mounted on the two floor-standing models
The iron pole piece of the OBERON woofer magnet is crowned by a patented SMC disk - minimizing the negative effects of the iron. The use of the SMC disk greatly reduces mechanical distortion, which lowers third order distortion. This allows for a longer listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detail for its price class.
The OBERON woofer features a wood fibre cone with a blend of fine grain paper pulp, reinforced with wood fibres, which creates a stiff, light-weight and well-behaving structure. In combination with a low-loss surround and spider suspension, this cone reproduces the micro details in the signal - unfiltered and with high accuracy.
The driver materials, crossover design and geometry applied in the OBERON series has been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. This ensures a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion. This is why all DALI speakers are not designed to be toed-in.
I'v had the speakers for 10 days and they keep getting better. The detail, transparency, and smooth midrange all keep opening up more. They are short for floor standing speakers, so I put each on a 3" blocks of concrete which brought the tweeter up to ear level. Also, I have them toed in a little despite DALI recommendation to have them straight. Because they are close to the side walls the toeing in improved the imaging. I highly recommend DALI. These are better than other speakers I've had over the last 3 decades; KEF, Paradigm, PSB, Polk, Energy, Totem. These DALIs really thrive on a steady diet of well recorded folk rock, jazz, chamber music, and electronica.
