OBERON 3

The DALI OBERON 3 delivers the large sound of a floorstanding speaker in a compact stand-mount cabinet. The OBERON 3 also makes a great sounding shelf mounted speaker.

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 OBERON 3 is at home in any room. The driver materials and geometry we use are purpose-designed to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. The same principles have been applied in the design of the crossover to deliver a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. An added benefit of a wide dispersion pattern is that harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion are significantly reduced – this is also the reason why DALI speakers are not designed to be toed in.

NEW WOOD FIBRE CONE

Optimised with new wood fibre structure

The OBERON 3 features the same 7" low loss woofer used in the OBERON 7. It's 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, the woofer creates a stiff, yet lightweight structure. And when combined with the low loss surround and spider suspension, the OBERON 3 woofer reproduces the most minute details in the signal, unfiltered and with high accuracy.

REDUCING DISTORTION

DALI's patented SMC reducing distortion

The use of SMC (Soft Magnetic Composite) in the OBERON 3 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 3 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 size of the membrane lets the tweeter generate 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 optimal working conditions for the soft dome. This results in extended frequency response, wide dispersion and low colouration.

OPTIMISED CABINET

Cabinet design beyond 'just' good looks

The OBERON 3 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. The OBERON series also introduces a new rounded front grille design for a lighter and more contemporary look.

DARKO.AUDIO (AUS)

AUDIOFI.NET

One potential drawback of listening through lots of gear in all price ranges on a regular basis is a sense of loss – the experience of missing things that are no longer there due to a change in gear. Perhaps DALI's SMC tech is akin to Cupid's elixir but in any event, the OBERON 3 has been touched by some kind of special sauce transforming an affordable speaker into a compellingly balanced music maker.
