OPTICON 1 and 2 are small loudspeakers, but today’s technology makes it possible to make speakers of that size without compromising the quality. The Ear’s verdict of the speakers is that “in both cases you will get a very satisfying result and real quality in both build and sound. Competition is stiff in this price range, but these DALIs are up among the front runners.”
Furthermore, they claim the OPTICON 1 and 2 to “share a sound; non-fatiguing higher notes, open midrange with little coloration and tight bass. They are definitely part of the same family.”
