The Dutch movie website Alles Over Film has tested the DALI ALTECO C-1, which impresses them.
According to Alles Over Film, “altitude speakers literally lift your surround experience to a higher level” and though the ALTECO C-1 are not so-called Dolby Atmos-certified speakers because of their different design and different structure “that does not make them less suitable,” Alles Over Film says. “In fact, DALI has come up with something that makes it possible to use these speakers for every channel, except for the center,” they explain.
The switch on the loudspeaker makes it possible to direct the sound up or down, which is very useful according to Alles Over Film. “The sound really seems to come from behind you, while you are actually almost against the wall,” when you want to use a pair of rear speakers in a surround setup and your seat is completely against the back wall. “So DALI is very handy in this way,” they say.
As a surround setup* it offers “a very pleasant 3D audio experience. The sound came very naturally into the living room and despite the lack of height channels behind me, I still had a great feeling of immersion,” the reviewer explains.
“With the ALTECO C-1, DALI has again brought a nice product to the market,” Alles Over Film elaborates. “The combination of a very competitive price, excellent quality and versatile use ensures that you simply cannot ignore the ALTECO C-1,” they add.
Their conclusion of the DALI ALTECO C-1 speakers is that it is a “really good home cinema with hi-fi quality is closer than you think. Five stars!” Furthermore, they highlight that you get value for your money, it is good as a stereo speaker, it is easy to place, it is flexible, it has a good spread of sound and it is nicely finished.
