The DALI KATCH has already received its very first review by WHAT HI-FI? who gives it 5 out of 5 stars.
One of the things that impresses WHAT HI-FI? is that “the DALI is far from overawed by the track’s [Black Emperor’s Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress] demanding instrumentation; there’s plenty of detail picked out from sawing guitars and multi-tracked strings, digging deep into the soil of wails and drones that tail off each phrase.” And they continue: “The size of the sound is quite simply incredible for something of the KATCH’s stature.”
WHAT HI-FI? also points out: “Let’s not get carried away, you won’t be replacing your entire hi-fi with this one speaker, but you’ll certainly be clearing bookshelves to find it a permanent home.”
Their conclusion is that “DALI has improved on pretty much every aspect of last year’s standard […] The DALI KATCH hasn’t quite got its hands on an Award just yet, but it’s certainly a nose ahead as we near the finish line. It isn’t cheap, but this is definitely a case of getting what you pay for.”
