On August 15, the EISA Awards announced that the DALI OPTICON 5.1 received an award for ‘European HT speaker system 2016-2017’. According to the EISA jury, the system “manages to deliver a perfect mix of refinement and muscle.” And they continue: “The result is a deep, atmospheric bed of surround sound, peppered with crisp effects that pan seamlessly around your home theatre room.”
The full review reads:
"Ideally suited for medium-to-larger-sized rooms, this accomplished system is as assured pumping out music as it is firing movie surround soundtracks around the room. Replacing DALI’s IKON range, the OPTICON 5.1 speaker system, including the SUB K-14 F subwoofer, aims to be accessible to a wide audience without compromising on performance. And it doesn’t disappoint – featuring paper/wood fibre driver technology handed down from the flagship EPICON range, combined with Soft Magnetic Compound motors and DALI’s hybrid tweeter module, it manages to deliver a perfect mix of refinement and muscle. The result is a deep, atmospheric bed of surround sound, peppered with crisp effects that pan seamlessly around your home theatre room. Throw in the beautiful build and gorgeous styling and you’ve got the perfect package."
The review and a short video are also available on the official EISA website.
