DALI CD VOL. 3

DALI CD 3 will introduce you to 'new' music (if you haven’t heard it before, any music is “new”) for the inspiration and listening pleasure of music lovers. Inevitably, not every track will be to your taste, but we believe that everyone will find something new and worthwhile. Give it a few spins and see.

Why another demo music compilation?
Frankly, we’re fed up with the handful of demo tracks in heavy rotation at audio shows and shops. The same tired, uninspiring four or five usual suspects (none named, none shamed) are repeated ad nauseum. Typically, tracks are selected solely for technical quality, despite a mediocre musical performance that grows old fast.

An industry grapevine somehow elevates tracks to reference status to show off specific sonic traits but surely this is an anti-musical pursuit. Shouldn’t our goal as music lovers be versatility, the ability to reproduce anything, whether the source is good, bad or indifferent?

Is it fair – or even meaningful - to evaluate a good audio system based on one narrow parameter at a time? And should our choice of music be dictated by technology?

Our answer is a resounding “NO!” in both cases, yet still we release demo compilations… DALI CD1 and CD2 were well received in terms of sales and worldwide “collector’s item” status. The two discs led to a wider “discovery” by the audio world of many of the artists involved and, in all humility, we accept that we have a heritage to maintain.

It is our intention that each selection will demonstrate various aspects of what it is that makes listening to music on a quality system such a rewarding experience, something most people can’t imagine, until they actually try it!
