Outtakes from the review of OPTICON 8 MK2 by Stereonet (UK):
"DALI's new Opticon 8 Mk2 delivers a very impressive sound for the money and a lot of it. It has real heft in the bass with a well-articulated midband and a smooth, spacious treble."
"The hybrid tweeter setup reveals itself to be quite pleasant to the ear, never harsh or fatiguing. The soundstage is physically big and wide, with superb imaging."
"At high volumes, lesser loudspeakers would wobble and distort the intro, but not here. Instead, the track's sampled drums cut through before the vocals emerged, with the faultless reverb tails on the vocals a pleasure to behold."
"...it makes music sound magical, which is what it's all about. Being a good all-rounder means that it's not only ideal for hi-fi use but also for home theatre applications too, possibly without a dedicated subwoofer."
