The DALI ALTECO C-1 is truly a multipurpose speaker in both design and function. DALI wanted to ensure that the ALTECO C-1 is usable as both a height speaker as well as a traditional stereo speaker. By designing the crossover for stereo use and by keeping a strict focus on DALI sound design principles, they have created a speaker that fulfills both criteria. It is the perfect fit for adding height information to a surround setup or taking the role as an out of the way stereo speaker.
The ALTECO C-1 delivers believable height information from Atmos, DTS-X and Auro-3D movies in surround setup - not only when “firing up” using the ceiling as a reflector, but also “firing down” from a position up under the ceiling.
The ALTECO C-1 is able to achieve this even without special equalizing in order to enhance the effects from HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function) technology. A technology found in Atmos certified speakers. Instead the ALTECO C-1 relies only on the height processing done in the amplifier, when selected. If DALI had included non-linear HRTF equalizing in the ALTECO C1, it would have been impossible to use it as a versatile neutral speaker, limiting the use to only an up-firing type speaker.
Designed the way it is the DALI ALTECO C-1 offers the best from several worlds givingBookshelf Speakers you ultimate flexibility and multiple applications.
The ALTECO C-1 cone membrane is crafted from a mix of fine grained paper and wood fibre pulp. This makes the cones very ridged, very light weight and the unevenness in the structure of the membrane helps minimize unwanted surface resonances. Combining the well-behaving wood fibre cone with the low-loss rubber surround and spider suspension results in the reproduction of even the smallest micro-detail in the signal unfiltered and with high accuracy.
The angled front and the dual sound modes enable the ALTECO C-1 to be used in a multitude of speaker positions. Add height information in any surround setup by either placing the ALTECO C-1 on top of the front or the rear speakers. It can also take the place of traditional front speakers placed high on the wall or horizontal on the side wall. It even offers the perfect angle for close listening in a desktop setting.
Clarity in an audio signal is obtained by low loss of information in combination with creating a smooth and seamless reproduction in both the time and frequency domain. Another fundamental is the lowering of mechanical distortion. This to make sure that the connected amplifier will not be exposed to a larger than necessary challenge, causing loss of detail in the signal even before it has the chance to reach the loudspeaker.
