    The OPTICON 8 is the pinnacle of the range. A towering floor-stander blessed with the best in DALI’s cutting-edge technology. If you want to move air with the ultimate in power and precision, the 8 is your answer.

    With a capacious cabinet, 2 x 8 inch low-loss Wood Fibre Woofers to render the deep bass joined by a 6½ inch low-loss Wood Fibre Woofer to handle the mid-range and our trademark Hybrid Tweeter with a Soft Dome and Ribbon Tweeter, the OPTICON 8 is capable of filling even the largest rooms with utterly immersive audio.

    This impressive 3 + ½-way system leaves nothing out and delivers a punchy bass, refined mid-range and high-definition high frequencies. Enhancing the quality of any source and putting in a performance that will eke out even the subtlest sounds of the recording.

    Also featuring the same gold-plated bi-wiring terminals as the rest of the range, the OPTICON 8 loudspeaker is a riot of deep bass and mid- and high-range perfection.

    OPTICON 8 impresses i-fidelity.net after testing it.

    I-fidelity.net tested the DALI OPTICON 8 and they were impressed!

    The OPTICON 8 showed its ability to deliver amazing sound from all sorts of music genres. The OPTICON 8 is able to give the listener a feel of a true “live” experience and captures even the smallest of details.

    I-fidelity.net was so impressed that they named the DALI OPTICON 8 as their “reference” speaker in its price range.

    A quote from i-fidelity.net

    “Matching the optical appearance the OPTICON 8 has a real size in sound which is based on a solid cabinet construction and clever combination of high-quality technique. In addition to this the speaker is not only great as being the player in a stereo set up but also as a homogeneous partner in a superior home cinema. But, please do not challenge the speakers with an average electronic set as the OPTICON 8 can do much better with an excellent system."

    A snippit from a review on soundstagetageaccess.com.

    The Opticon floorstanders use DALI’s hybrid tweeter, a unique 1.5-way design that, in the Opticon 8, is set rather low on the front baffle. The Opticon 8 is a 3.5-way design in which the 1.5-way tweeter module hands off to a 6.5” midrange driver at 2.3kHz, and the midrange driver is crossed over at 390Hz to two 8” woofers: one at the top of the front baffle, the other toward the bottom.

    A glimpse at the Opticon 8’s baffle tells you that DALI focuses their attention on driver technology. The woofer and midrange cones are made of a pulp mix of paper and wood fiber that, according to DALI, ensures very low surface resonance and gives the cones their distinctive brown color. The motor’s magnet has a large ferrite core surrounding a pole piece made entirely of the unique Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC).

    According to DALI, “SMC is a coated magnet granule that can be shaped into any form that you would want. . . . [SMC’s] unique ability to deliver a high magnetic conductivity and a very low electrical conductivity delivers all the wanted qualities of a really good speaker magnet without the traditional downsides. The result is a significant lowering of colouration of the reproduced sound.” Read more
