Austrian hi-fi website, Sempre-Audio, has tested the DALI OPTICON 5 and labels it "recommended price/performance". They praise the speaker for being a state-of-the-art product. The fact that SMC is used in a small floor-standing speaker at such an attractive price is simply amazing, they say. And they add: "The sound performance is great – a very clear and detailed sound combined with a beautiful design makes this speaker very universal in use."
