DALI EPICON series

The DALI EPICON series is built on knowledge from more than 30 years of research, development, and manufacturing of speakers, and on results from experimenting with both new and known technology the EPICON series shows just how far DALI has come in our search for natural sound reproduction. With a visual appearance that signals exclusivity and simplicity these speakers are for the most demanding of music and movie enthusiasts. And with a performance which is clearly DALI - taken one step further - we intend not only to meet these demands. We will surpass them.

EPICON Technology

EPICON FEATURES

LINEAR DRIVE MAGNET SYSTEM

The new innovative in-house developed SMC based Linear Drive Magnet System eliminates four distortion factors in the driver motor system. Eddy current, Hysteresis, Flux variations and Voice Coil Inductance.

SMC TECHNOLOGY

Advanced Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC), which eliminates variation of flux strength in the magnet gap. It reduces distortion to a minimum compared to conventional drivers.

IN-HOUSE MADE WOOFERS

The latest generation of the wood fibre cones, including new cone impregnation process and a new post-assembly coating. DALI EPICON woofers are not only developed - but also manufactured at the DALI headquarters in Denmark!

MULTILAYER MDF

Constructed from 6 individual layers of MDF glued together to form a rigid construction that reduces cabinet resonances. The rounded shape practically eliminated standing waves.

CABINET DESIGN

The rigid cabinet construction is important to optimize the working environment for both woofers and tweeter. The organically shaped design increases overall rigidity and severely reduces cabinet resonances. Furthermore standing waves are practically eliminated as there are no parallel surfaces reflecting sound waves. The EPICON cabinet consists of real wood veneer which is lacquered of a total of 10 times. Each layer is hand polished to ensure a deep, high gloss and elegant surface. 10 times of lacquer also ensures a sturdy finish with a thickness of almost 2 mm.

DRAMATICALLY REDUCED DISTORTION

We developed our patented Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC) material to challenge the highest market standards in an attempt to reduce distortion - and succeded. SMC offers exactly the right physical properties: Very high magnetic conductivity and very low electrical conductivity. The result is a dramatic reduction in distortion caused by mechanical loss in the magnet system. The resulting reduction of distortion is both very clearly measurable and indeed audible.

SMOOTH, WIDE HORIZONTAL DISPERSION

The DALI trademark, the hybrid tweeter module, features an extremely smooth and wide horizontal dispersion. We have spent years in perfecting the technology, which combines the advantages of our soft dome tweeter and ribbon tweeter to form the ideal high frequency solution. Working in unison, they deliver a transparent and solid rendering of even the most subtle high frequency details.
