SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK // Dali - Writ­ten by DAVID RICHARDS

Dan­ish loud­speaker brand has had to turn to arch ri­val, Blue­sound to de­liver a high res au­dio of­fer­ing for their new DALI CAL­LISTO speaker sys­tem.

Later this month at the IFA show in Berlin, the Dan­ish Com­pany whose prod­ucts are dis­trib­uted in Aus­tralia by Ad­vanced Au­dio will an­nounce that the Com­pany has been forced to adopt the BluOS net­work­ing sys­tem as well as an on­go­ing part­ner­ship with Cana­dian Com­pany Len­brook In­ter­na­tional whose orig­i­nal high res sound prod­ucts are dis­trib­uted in Aus­tralia by Con­voy.

Len­brook has led the world in the de­vel­op­ment of High Res 24-bit sound sys­tems with their Blue­sound of­fer­ing and of late their NAD sys­tems.

“DALI’s de­ci­sion to join the BluOS ecosys­tem is an­other im­por­tant sig­nal to the world that con­ve­nient and mod­ern ac­cess to high res­o­lu­tion au­dio re­ally does mat­ter” said Gor­don Sim­monds, CEO, Len­brook Cor­po­ra­tion.

DALI who have been un­able to de­velop their own high res au­dio net­work­ing sys­tem is set to of­fer the BluOS high-res­o­lu­tion multi-room plat­form as an ex­ten­sion to its wire­less loud­speaker solutions.

“This step marks DALI’s en­trance into the fast-grow­ing multi-room stream­ing seg­ment, and sig­nals BluOS as the pre­ferred ini­tial plat­form choice for DALI’s fu­ture wire­less prod­ucts” the Com­pany said.

The new DALI Sound Hub, con­nects via a 24 bit/96 kHz con­nec­tion.

It will have a mul­ti­tude of stan­dard in­puts – all with auto de­tect via Blue­tooth, op­ti­cal, ana­logue, USB or coax.

The Blue­tooth re­mote will find the Sound Hub even if it is hid­den away in a cab­i­net.

What’s not been ex­plained is why con­sumers should buy a Dali prod­uct over an orig­i­nal Len­brook de­vel­oped Blue­sound prod­uct.

The Dali speak­ers are de­signed around a 6½” wood fi­bre woofer with an ad­vanced SMC mag­net mo­tor sys­tem and a hy­brid tweeter mod­ule (in both mod­els) con­sist­ing of a 29mm ul­tra­light-weight soft dome tweeter and a high-per­for­mance rib­bon tweeter.

The driv­ers are fed by a dual chan­nel 300W Class D am­pli­fier con­nected di­rectly to the driv­ers. De­liv­er­ing a trans­par­ent, de­tailed, co­her­ent and well-timed au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence above and be­yond any­thing else avail­able at this price point.

DALI said that they will of­fer their BluOS high-res­o­lu­tion multi-room plat­form as an ex­ten­sion to its wire­less loud­speaker solutions.

“This re­la­tion­ship marks DALI’s en­trance into the fast-grow­ing mul­ti­room stream­ing seg­ment, and sig­nals BluOS as our pre­ferred plat­form choice” the Com­pany said in a press state­ment is­sued ear­lier to­day.

“There is a grow­ing list and wide va­ri­ety of wire­less multi-room au­dio solutions that loud­speaker com­pa­nies can choose to de­velop on.” states Lars Worre, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor at DALI.

“Our team re­viewed the op­tions and our per­for­mance val­ues led us to the BluOS plat­form, which has earned an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion as a world leader in this space. For DALI, this is a strong path­way for our fu­ture roadmap and it pro­vides in­creased flex­i­bil­ity for dis­cern­ing au­dio cus­tomers around the world.”
