LEKTOR 1 - Detail, control and timing

The UK magazine WHAT HI-FI? have once again reviewed LEKTOR 1, they remain a charmin pair of speakers.

In 2008, the Lektor 1's won a Best Buy Award from WHAT Hi-FI?, and the magazine review the LEKTOR 1's in a Stereo Speakers Supertest.

The LEKTOR 1's still look striking with their smart finish and well-built enclosure. A pair of LEKTOR 1's are happy in small listening rooms, and in spite of their compact size, the LEKTOR 1's have a decent amount of scale and fluid dynamics considering their petite size. "[...] these Lektor 1s are capable of delivering quite a substantiak and engaging sound." The LEKTOR 1's have great control over the music, eventhough they don't reach as deep in the bass as some. However, they shine in the mid-to-high-frequency ranges with voices that sound natural and direct.

"Detail, control, timing: the Dali Lektor 1s are still every bit as accomplished in these areas as they were back when we tested them in 2008." Unfortunately, they have lost the five-star rating, but the reviewers from WHAT Hi-FI? credit these speakers for a sound that remains enjoyable and exciting.

4/5 stars

FOR: Lively, agile performers; strong midrange with engaging vocals; control and authority

AGAINST: The compact size means they won't go as deep as some rivals; lack a touch of clarity

VERDICT: There's plenty to love, if you'll trade deep bass for articulate mid-to-high frequencies
