OBERON 1

The DALI OBERON 1 is an ultra-compact bookshelf speaker for smaller rooms, discreet audio setups or wall mounting. The cabinet size balances inner volume for bass performance and a compact appearance for easy integration.

Easy to Position

The wide dispersion pattern of the drivers ensures well-integrated sound that drastically reduces off-axis harmonic distortion.

Contemporary Design

The rounded edges and grille fabric add a lighter and more contemporary look, enhanced by the elegantly shaped aluminium base on the floorstanding models.

Wood Fibre Cones

The stiff, lightweight structure of the reinforced wood fibre cone reproduces details that are uncoloured and highly accurate.

Patented SMC

The woofer magnet's iron pole-piece includes a patented SMC disc that greatly reduces mechanical distortion for a relaxed midrange and lots of detail.

Finish: Light Oak (Vinyl)

EASY INTEGRATION

Well-integrated sound, even off axis

The compactness of the OBERON 1 makes it easy to integrate into any room. The driver materials and geometry we use are purpose-designed to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. By dispersing the sound around a room more widely, what you hear has more coherent balance, consistency and quality – even off-axis. Wide dispersion also gives you more flexibility when it comes to positioning the OBERON 1.

WOOD FIBRE CONE

Revealing the minutest details

The 5¼" low loss woofer used in the OBERON 1 has been optimised with a new wood fibre structured cone dedicated to reproducing the delicate midrange and bass frequency area. Constructed from a blend of fine-grain paper pulp reinforced with wood fibres, it creates a stiff, yet lightweight structure. And when combined with the low loss surround and spider suspension, the OBERON 1 woofer reproduces the minutest details, unfiltered and with high accuracy

REDUCING DISTORTION

DALI's patented SMC reducing distortion

The use of SMC (Soft Magnetic Composite) in the OBERON 1 greatly reduces mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents. The result is a magnet motor system with a drastic reduction in third-order distortion, which allows the OBERON 1 to deliver extended listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing in its class.

OVERSIZED SOFT DOME

Combining proven technologies & features

The oversized 29 mm ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter was specifically developed for the OBERON series, combining well-proven technologies from our existing DALI ranges with new features. The large membrane size generates higher sound pressure with less excursion, keeping the voice-coil motion to a controlled minimum. The tweeter front plate near the dome has been designed with similar geometry to the OPTICON and RUBICON tweeters to create the best possible working conditions for the soft dome. The result is extended frequency response, wide dispersion and low colouration.

OPTIMISED CABINET

Cabinet design beyond 'just' good looks

The OBERON 1 cabinet is constructed from a high density, CNC machined MDF board dressed in high-grade vinyl. The extremely rigid structure is achieved with solid bracings across the inside of the cabinet, which practically eliminates cabinet resonance. The bass ports at the rear of the cabinet optimise room integration by using a rear wall surface to improve bass performance. There's also a keyhole bracket at the back for on-wall mounting.

HOME THEATER REVIEW (US)

L&B TECH REVIEWS

The '1s are stunning with vocal-based material. We listen [...] and marvel at the way these speakers deliver voices in such a solid and expressive way. You'd need to spend closer to four figures to get any better in this respect. There are rivals that dig up as much information, but few deliver it with such a sense of passion and enthusiasm.
