RUBICON 8

Quite simply a stunning, epic soundstage. Delivering a totally transparent image with a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance in almost any listening space.

Wood Fibre Cones

The wood fibre cone gives a light, rigid and uneven surface for even, piston-like motion and greatly reduced surface resonance.

Patented SMC

With an SMC magnet pole-piece surrounded by a slitted copper cap, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised to reduce distortion.

Cabinet Construction

Creating separate chambers for each driver enables us to individually tune them for optimal output.

Hybrid Tweeter

Our signature DALI hybrid tweeter combines a dome tweeter and planar element for exceptional high-frequency rendering.

Finish: Walnut (Veneer)

PERFORMANCE AND PASSION

Live performances within the living room

Upping the audio ante to the extreme, the RUBICON 8 is quite simply stunning in terms of the epic soundstage it presents. The trio of woofers blend the bass and midrange frequencies seamlessly, while the wide sound dispersion afforded by our hybrid tweeter helps the RUBICON 8 fill larger spaces with a totally transparent image and a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance. The RUBICON 8 is the pinnacle of your entry into the world of high-end audio at a midrange price.

PATENTED SMC

Reducing distortion with SMC

The RUBICON 8 draws on the heritage from the SMC-based 'Linear Drive System', introduced with the EPICON series. With SMC, we achieve extremely low distortion and maximise detail, even at low volume. The drivers are manufactured in-house at our production facilities in central Denmark and feature the latest in magnet motor technology. The RUBICON 8 sets new audio quality standards for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.

DALI HYBRID TWEETER

The master of wide dispersion

The DALI hybrid tweeter module features a soft dome tweeter and a planar element that combine to create an amazing rendition of high-frequency details. The voice-coil used in the RUBICON 8 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.

6½" WOOFERS

Drawing on technology from EPICON series

The three 6½" drivers used in the RUBICON 8 work together to reproduce a clean, detailed sound with no colouration. Drawing on EPICON technology, the woofer cones have a light, rigid and randomly uneven structure, which lowers the complexity of the central part of the motor, ensures piston-like movement, significantly reduces the possibility of surface resonance and minimises distortion. Designed specifically for the RUBICON 8, the soft, low-loss rubber surround includes a cast-aluminium chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.

CABINET DESIGN

Blending elegant design & functionality

The gracefully elegant RUBICON 8 cabinet provides a rigid foundation for the low-loss drivers. On this inside, the woofers are enclosed in separate chambers to minimise interference, while bass reflex ports positioned directly behind each woofer minimises turbulence and delivers exceptional timing.

What people are saying

LYD & BILLEDE

AREA DVD (DE)

Stereophile

The midrange is like a wide-open window to the music. It sounds as if the speakers are much more expensive than they really are. [...] The sound image is big, greatly three-dimensional, and very well-defined with a black background, which almost is unique in its price range. [...] We give an A+ and great applause for DALI.
