I-fidelity.net tested the DALI OPTICON 8 and they were impressed!
The OPTICON 8 showed its ability to deliver amazing sound from all sorts of music genres. The OPTICON 8 is able to give the listener a feel of a true “live” experience and captures even the smallest of details.
I-fidelity.net was so impressed that they named the DALI OPTICON 8 as their “reference” speaker in its price range.
A quote from i-fidelity.net
“Matching the optical appearance the OPTICON 8 has a real size in sound which is based on a solid cabinet construction and clever combination of high-quality technique. In addition to this the speaker is not only great as being the player in a stereo set up but also as a homogeneous partner in a superior home cinema. But, please do not challenge the speakers with an average electronic set as the OPTICON 8 can do much better with an excellent system."
