The OPTICON MK2 speaker range majors on clear, undistorted, enjoyable and coherent audio – perfectly complementing music, radio, streaming, TV or movie sources. The speaker series caters to every requirement – offering a speaker for every room and every occasion. Comprising six models ranging from a compact on-wall speaker to a towering floorstander.
An important element of the OPTICON MK2 range is that the production remains fully Danish – as with the original OPTICON series. The entire lineup is manufactured at our own factory from components either produced in-house, or mainly sourced from the best local specialist-manufacturers. We are therefore proud to say that the OPTICON MK2 series is designed, developed and manufactured in Denmark.
Speakers used and enjoyed in pairs should also be built as pairs! Our manufacturing process is designed to ensure that stereo pairs of speakers are built and tested sequentially by a single manufacturing technician, using components taken in the same order from the same batch. It’s a process that helps ensure ultimate visual and acoustic pair matching.
The SMC used in OPTICON MK2’s magnet motor system has very high magnetic permeability and very low electrical conductivity. It works primarily by minimising eddy currents in the magnet system pole piece. This improves flux linearity, reducing the magnetic hysteresis. Resulting in a significant reduction of electro-acoustic distortion.
The new OPTICON MK2 hybrid tweeter marries the CALLISTO-derived 29 mm soft dome with a custom 17 x 45 mm ribbon – mounted on a cast aluminium faceplate that incorporates dispersion control detailing. This combination offers the clarity, speed and dynamics of a dome tweeter, with the very high frequency detail and smooth finesse of a ribbon tweeter.
The newly introduced OPTICON MK2 Dual Flare technique brings port design into the realm of aerodynamics – with exit and entry flares carefully designed to minimise turbulence. Dual Flare enables OPTICON MK2 reflex ports to remain laminar and work effectively to reinforce low frequency performance to a significantly higher volume level than would otherwise be possible.
DALI OPTICON MK2 series:
DALI OPTICON 1 MK2
The OPTICON 1 MK2 is a compact stand mount speaker designed to be installed close to room boundaries, while the Dual Flare reflex loaded enclosure enables the OPTICON 1 MK2 to deliver remarkable bass performance for its size that integrates perfectly with the inherent midrange and high frequency quality of its drivers.
DALI OPTICON 2 MK2
The OPTICON 2 MK2 is a mid-sized stand mount speaker with 6½” woofer and a 29 mm soft dome tweeter. It’s a natural for high performance audio in compact to medium size listening spaces where it has room to breathe and deliver its dynamic and explicitly defined performance.
DALI OPTICON 6 MK2
The internal volume of the floorstanding OPTICON 6 MK2 achieves a significant low frequency extension and bass volume level. It combines that bass performance with brilliant, midrange clarity and the sparkling high frequencies that are characteristic of the DALI hybrid tweeter.
DALI OPTICON 8 MK2
The large-scale, floorstanding OPTICON 8 MK2 is the powerhouse of the new OPTICON MK2 family – the only three-way system in the series. The speaker combines immense low frequency bandwidth, volume potential and dynamic accuracy with the extraordinary detail and clarity from the dedicated midrange driver. The OPTICON 8 MK2 offers an extended low frequency profile that suits installation in large listening spaces with more distant room boundaries.
DALI OPTICON VOKAL MK2
The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is specifically voiced to play the centre channel role, but at the same time it displays all the characteristic qualities that enable it to dovetail perfectly in a full OPTICON MK2 audio visual system.
DALI OPTICON LCR MK2
With airy high frequencies, expressive midrange and surprisingly extended bass, the OPTICON LCR MK2 is an on-wall speaker that delivers genuine hi-fi performance. The OPTICON LCR MK2 has everything covered – from conventional stereo through TV audio to multi-channel home theatre applications.
