According to the German website, the OPTICON 1 is excellent in every aspect.

After testing the DALI OPTICON 1, AREADVD appreciate these small speakers for their rich acoustics, despite their compact cabinet design. They found that the OPTICON 1 fills the room in a homogeneous way and delivers a clear and coherent sound with characteristic details. The high frequency range interacts with the mid-range frequencies in an excellent way.

As they see, the OPTICON 1 as a classic, noble and compact bookshelf loudspeaker, which convinces its audience with its dynamic sound and bass performance. With an excellent build quality and a sound that is perceived larger than its size, they think the OPTICON 1 is the perfect speaker for sophisticated music lovers.
