THE ABSOLUTE PINNACLE

Musical indulgence like never before

The absolute pinnacle of the EPICON series, the EPICON 8 delivers a dramatically rich and detailed sound that will blow your mind and captivate your senses. The loudspeaker is the result of a passionate, tireless quest for perfection. Prepare yourself for musical indulgence like never before and a beautifully striking design that you will love to own.

PATENTED SMC

Reducing distortion for superior sound

For years, designing magnet systems has been a DALI speciality. For the EPICON 8, we decided to challenge the highest performance standards and to take magnet system design further than ever before. The answer was Soft Magnetic Composite (SMC) material, which combines extremely high magnetic conductivity and very low electrical conductivity to deliver a dramatic reduction in distortion caused by mechanical loss in the magnet system.

DALI HYBRID TWEETER

The master of wide dispersion

The DALI hybrid tweeter module features a soft dome tweeter and a planar tweeter that combine to create an amazing rendition of high-frequency details. The voice-coil used in the EPICON 6 soft dome is extremely light and agile, which helps it deliver a broader bandwidth. The planar tweeter is the master of wide dispersion and, in combination with the soft dome, reaches as low as 2.5 kHz, providing continuous wide dispersion as the soft dome becomes more directional at higher frequencies. This extreme bandwidth and ultra-wide dispersion is an important part of DALI's sound philosophy.

WOOD FIBRE WOOFERS

Manufactured at DALI facility in Denmark

At DALI, we believe in designs based on low mechanical loss, and we were among the first to master the control of frequency response through carefully balanced design. Designs such as our wood fibre cone with its light, rigid and randomly uneven structure that reproduces the finest details and dynamics in the music with very low loss of information.

CABINET DESIGN

Blending elegant design & functionality

The EPICON 8 is a masterclass in elegant loudspeaker design, with curved lines and a real-wood veneer finished with 10 layers of lacquer, each hand polished to a deep gloss. But the cabinet is also functional. With no parallel surfaces, unwanted reflections are practically eliminated, while the rigid construction provides a solid platform and an acoustically tuned 'spring' for the drivers, which helps to eliminate resonant energy. Separate chambers inside the cabinet also allow each woofer to be individually tuned to perfection, and bass ports located directly behind the bass and midrange drivers minimise turbulence.
