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.
The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is specifically voiced to play the centre channel role, but at the same time it displays all the characteristic qualities that enable it to dovetail perfectly in a full OPTICON MK2 audio visual system.
The centre channel offers a level of performance unavailable from any other OPTICON model. It combines immense low frequency bandwidth, volume potential and dynamic accuracy with the extraordinary detail and clarity that arises from the use of a dedicated midrange driver. High frequencies from the hybrid tweeter are explicitly detailed and informative yet simultaneously smooth and endlessly listenable.
The enclosure dimensions and proportions are specifically configured to enable its installation in audio-visual furniture units, and its front facing reflex ports mean that even fully enclosed mounting is feasible.
This makes it perfect for placement up against a wall underneath the TV or projector screen or even hidden away in a HiFi furniture when not in use, which it also has been specifically designed for - a nice feature for aesthetically minded home theatre owners.
The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is the perfect partner for any speaker in the OPTICON MK2 series, with the same level of detail and coherence – but also powerful enough to be used even with the OPTICON 8 MK2.
The manufacture of the entire series remains fully Danish - as with the MK1 series. Built at our factory in Denmark; from components produced in-house or sourced from the best specialist manufacturers locally and further afield.
The VOKAL MK2 is available in Satin Black, Satin White and Tobacco Oak.
