DALI SPEKTOR 1 Compact speaker

The DALI SPEKTOR 1 brings the DALI sound design principals to a NEW price bracket, opening the possibility for many NEW music and movies lovers to experience the seduction of true Hi-Fi. Getting this much Hi-Fi performance from a speaker in this price range not only took all of our experience and knowhow, but also hours and hours spent in the listening room, improving the driver and crossover designs to create the perfect audio performance. The low-loss drivers uses a mix of low-mass paper cones with wood fibre reinforcement. The embedded wood fibres give the surface an uneven structure, which dramatically minimizes the resonance of the surface. This creates the best possible reproduction of every detail in the audio signal.

The amplifier friendly design makes the SPEKTOR series a perfect fit for almost any of the amplifiers in its price category. No matter if we look at compact Hi-Fi, stereo amplifiers or surround receivers, SPEKTOR will bring out the best in them, showing you just how good music and movies can sound.

The dome tweeter offers best-in-class resolution with an extended frequency response, wide dispersion and low coloration. A clear heritage from our high-end series. The tweeter is based on an ultra-lightweight weaved fabric, which weighs less than half of the market standard (0.056 mg/mm2).

By using only DALI designed and custom-built drivers, the need for frequency correction in the crossover is eliminated. This enables us to design an exact crossover which together with carefully selected quality components ensures that the signal loss is close to zero

Perfect great communication and very prompt on follow up. Would never guess these weren’t brand new if I hadn’t already. Thank you!

Punches (way) above its weight!

Noting that I really like the Dali-sound (and have other pairs of Dali speakers), I bought these for my office system. They do require a little bit of run-in time to really get them to where they will be, but after that initial run-in time (Dali suggests about 100 hours), you will find yourself listening with pleasure (and a little bit of amazement). Highly recommended!

The Magnificent Dali Spektor 1 Speaker

The main reason I had decided on the Spektor 1 speakers was to match to a vintage Dual 1019 turntable with a Goldring E3 cartridge that runs through an Audiolab 6000A Play amp with onboard DAC. Even though the speakers haven' t yet run through the break in cycle, I'm finding the sound to be quite close to what I was hoping for. Not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, I qualify these little babies as top notch in the sound they produce.
A lot of my listening is currently done via streaming of SiriusXM radio. Not fatiguing at all as I can listen for hours on end without any problem.
As well, vinyl sounds great and my old Sony CD player sounds better through the Spektors. I haven't even reverted back to my antique Dyanco A25Xs since hooking up the Spektor 1s........a very, very content and happy listener.

Good speakers, great for surrounds

Like a teenage version of the Spektor 2s, in size and sound. Using them as the two rear speakers in a surround system, for my small space they're probably still a bit large but the receiver balances them and it's better to err on the big side. I'm waiting on some parts to actually use them as surrounds but listening to music they're big enough for an 11x15 ft space but not big enough to listen well from the room next to that.

Shipping from AF is fast but not always accurate. I originally was sent the wrong speaker color, but had only opened the Spektor 2s that came in the same shipment so didn't notice for a few days. The return process was simple and automated but there was no indication the replacement speakers were en route until they showed up. This time I checked right away and they were the right speakers though missing the feet and hook for wall mounting. Which AF is now probably shipping to me. Moral is, check the shipment right away so you don't lose time if there is some snafu.

Ultra Compact Affordable Audiophile Speakers

These tiny speakers sound big in a small room paired with my 100 watt per channel Denon DRA-685 stereo receiver. They don't have deep bass, alas they have great mid and upper bass that is so pleasing I don't care about the missing last octave. The whole speaker is extremely well integrated from mid bass to upper treble. They also have this great quality of making brightly mastered recordings listenable that I truly appreciate. The music coming from them is so much fun and engaging to listen to. In a small room a sub is optional. I am not using a sub and have no plans to add one in my 11'w x 16'd x 7'h room. My pair are set up on 30 inch speaker stands. I have heard a lot of speakers and these DALI Spektor 1 speakers sound special and very musically satisfying with all genres of music. A great all around loudspeaker for small rooms that is easy to set up due to its ultra compact size of 237 mm h x 140 mm w x 195 mm d. The DALI Spektor 1 has a low sensitivity at 83 db so takes a little more power or volume although they are easy to drive with my Denon and sounds great at low and mid volumes and even at higher than normal volumes. Highly recommended! It sounds like a high end speaker on a budget. Very well done DALI and Lenbrook Industries for bringing these gems to North America.
Thanks and enjoy the music!
