Easy to Position
The wide dispersion pattern of the drivers ensures well-integrated sound that drastically reduces off-axis harmonic distortion.
The rounded edges and grille fabric add a lighter and more contemporary look, enhanced by the elegantly shaped aluminum base on the floorstanding models.
Wood Fiber Cones
The stiff, lightweight structure of the reinforced wood fiber cone reproduces details that are uncolored and highly accurate.
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.
The largest in the DALI OBERON range, the OBERON 9 is a true high-end Hi-Fi speaker that combines ultimate refinement and startling detail with effortless power to bring genuine concert and cinema experiences into any listening space.
Well-integrated sound, even off axisThe OBERON 9 delivers the very best in deep bass and large room performance. Despite its size, this speaker is surprisingly delicate and will impress with its ability to render natural, lifelike music of any style, even at lower volumes. Both the driver materials and speaker geometry have been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern – we've applied the same principles to the crossover design. As a result, you'll experience amazingly well integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle.
NEW WOOD FIBRE CONE
Optimised with a new wood fibre structureThe OBERON 9 features a dedicated 7" midrange driver supported by twin 9" bass woofers. All three low loss drivers are 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 9 woofer reproduces the most minute details in the signal, unfiltered and with high accuracy.
DALI's patented SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound)The use of SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) in the OBERON 9 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 9 to deliver extended listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing in its class.
OVERSIZED SOFT DOME
Combining well-proven technologies with new featuresThe 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.
Cabinet design isn't just about good looksThe OBERON 9 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 elegantly shaped aluminium base also gives the floorstanding OBERON 9 a lighter, elevated look.

REVIEWS & AWARDSVIEW ALL REVIEWS
"A large-volume floorstanding speaker at a competitive price. The speaker sparkles with joy and power and always hits the right note even in the softest moments. Tonally balanced, very deep and powerful in the bass. If possible, the room shouldn't be too small."
Powerful with an enhanced and controlled performance. Delivering physical bass to fill a larger room
Upgraded with a new crossover design, Mundorf capacitors and internal DALI silver cable wiring.
Stunning, epic soundstage that delivers a totally transparent image with a richness of detail.
High-frequencies from the hybrid tweeter are explicitly detailed and informative yet smooth and endlessly listenable.
A scintilating 3½-way floorstander with an extended low-frequency profile for larger listening spaces.
Surprising deep, firm bass with clear and well defined midrange and open high frequency response.
