The OPTICON series has been at the heart of the DALI range for over five years and has brought exceptional DALI performance into the homes of countless music lovers and audiophiles. But the time has come for the OPTICON to benefit from some new ideas and technologies, and to be refreshed with a new aesthetic.

Welcome to the DALI OPTICON MK2. Effectively updating and improving such a well regarded high performance series as the OPTICON is a careful balancing act. How to enhance the existing engineering, aesthetics and performance without degrading or even eradicating the qualities that worked so well the first time around? The answers to that conundrum are numerous, and range from subtle revisions to more fundamental changes, but they have all been implemented the DALI way, with a continual focus on music reproduction, thoughtful design, stylish aesthetics, quality of manufacture and use of the latest technologies and ideas.

As with the original OPTICON series, an important element of the OPTICON MK2 is that it remains fully Danish in manufacture; built at our factory in Denmark from components either produced in-house, or sourced from the best specialist manufacturers locally and further afield. Just like its predecessor, the OPTICON MK2 is a speaker series that majors on clear, undistorted, enjoyable and coherent audio; perfectly complementing music, radio, streaming, TV or movie sources. A speaker series that caters to every requirement with compact stand or wall mount options, slim to more substantial floor stand options, and a centre channel option too. The OPTICON MK2 series offers a speaker for every room and every occasion.

The DALI OPTICON MK2 series comprises six models and marks the point in the DALI passive speaker range where both performance and engineering ambition take a real step up and begin to speak the language of specialist, high-end hi-fi. OPTICON MK2 also introduces the renowned DALI hybrid tweeter, die-cast aluminium driver chassis, full SMC driver pole-pieces, and in-house manufactured enclosures. Each OPTICON MK2 model is built around in-house manufactured SMC based bass/midrange drivers, and employs either a DALI soft dome tweeter or the hybrid soft dome and ribbon tweeter for which DALI has become so 2. The OPTICON MK2 Series well known. OPTICON MK2 models are available in three new finishes; satin white, satin black, and tobacco oak*. Grilles are covered with furniture grade cloth in black for the two darker enclosure options and light grey for the white enclosure option. 

Hybrid Tweeter

The new OPTICON MK2 hybrid tweeter marries the CALLISTO-derived 29 mm soft dome with a custom 17 x 45 mm ribbon - mounted on a cast aluminium faceplate that incorporates dispersion control detailing. This combination offers the clarity, speed and dynamics of a dome tweeter, with the very high frequency detail and smooth finesse of a ribbon tweeter.

Reflex Ports

The newly introduced OPTICON MK2 Dual Flare technique brings port design into the realm of aerodynamics - with exit and entry flares carefully designed to minimise turbulence. Dual Flare enables OPTICON MK2 reflex ports to remain laminar and work effectively to reinforce low frequency performance to a significantly higher volume level than would otherwise be possible.

Assembled In Pairs

Speakers used and enjoyed in pairs should also be built as pairs! Our manufacturing process is designed to ensure that stereo pairs of speakers are built and tested sequentially by a single manufacturing technician, using components taken in the same order from the same batch. It’s a process that helps ensure ultimate visual and acoustic pair matching.

SMC Technology

The SMC used in OPTICON MK2's magnet motor system has very high magnetic permeability and very low electrical conductivity. It works primarily by minimising eddy currents in the magnet system pole piece. This improves flux linearity, reducing the magnetic hysteresis. Resulting in a significant reduction of electro-acoustic distortion.
