Today, we expect that little extra care and attention, when it comes to performance, visual appearance, and details. The ZENSOR 5 comes up to these expectations.
The ZENSOR 5 front baffle features the exclusive ZENSOR high-gloss lacquered finish, while high-grade vinyl adds an inviting and smooth look to the cabinet made of medium density fibreboard, incorporating soundproof material and internal bracings.
As its big brother, the ZENSOR 5 highlights a line of prominent features such as removable front grille, steady aluminium base, front mounted bass reflex port, and a single wired connection input of premium quality. 15 cm shorter than its larger sibling and still more than 80 cm tall, floor standing ZENSOR 5 will indeed prove to be a both recognizable and modern companion blending into the home décor in good taste.
Naturally, the 2 x 5 ¼” woofers are completely newly developed and benefit from comprehensive knowledge and heritage from successful DALI woofers. While the low-loss construction guarantees optimized cone and suspension for lasting enjoyment of the entire soundscape.
The ZENSOR 5 loudspeaker is where to look, if you wish to embellish your home environment with an authoritative and realistic performer that never leaves doubt of its origin in DALI high-end heritage.
With a clear heritage from our high end series, the lightweight dome tweeter in the ZENSOR 5 offers best in class resolution. It features timing due to the position of the tweeter, minimised compression and increased power handling, thanks to the vented voice coil former. The damping material under the dome minimises reflections from the pole piece.
Both 5.25 inch woofers in the ZENSOR 5 feature 4-layer voice coils for maximum control of the wood fibre cone. The low loss construction is ensured by a rigid metal basket and meticulously optimised cone. The result is bass authority, well-controlled reproduction of micro-detail and great transient capabilities.
CNC machined MDF board, dressed in a top-of-the-class laminate forms the framework of the speaker. In addition, the floor-standing models feature strong internal bracing to reduce structural resonances.
In order to optimise timing, the ZENSOR 5 is fitted with acoustic damping material internally along the sides, top and bottom - but not on the rear side of the front baffle as this creates a more direct contact between woofer and bass port. The audible result is a more precise bass and increased ‘attack’ in the midrange.
The elegant aluminium base elevates the floor-standing models.
