"The size of the sound is quite simply incredible for something of the Katch’s stature." What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

DALI is a leading, Danish speaker company with a long list of award-winning models to its name.

With the Katch you can now get that famous DALI sound from a compact Bluetooth speaker. It might be small but that hasn't prevented DALI from squeezing in proper two-way, stereo speakers with soft dome tweeters. Together with the twin ABRs (Auxcillary bass Radiator) this gives the Katch an amazingly life-like and dynamic sound from such a small speaker.

Tailor the sound
Because you might not always want the same type of sound, the Katch features two audio profiles; 'Clear' and 'Warm'. 'Clear' is the default choice for when you just want to hear the sound as the musicians intended. If you're having a party or prefer a bassy sound then choose 'Warm' for a sound with a bit more punch.

Simple Bluetooth link to your smartphone with NFC
Playing music from your smartphone or tablet couldn't be easier with the Katch. All you need to do is hold the NFC-compatible device next to the speaker and you're ready to start streaming. Non-NFC-compatible devices pair in the usual way, giving you wireless music streaming over a distance of around 10m. The Katch is also compatible with Bluetooth aptX, so if your source is similarly specified you'll get a further boost in sound quality. A 3.5mm input allows wired connection for older sources.

Long-lasting rechargeable battery and phono charging
The Katch features one of the longest lasting batteries in its class. Once charged it's good for up to 24 hours of continuous playback. Connect up your smartphone via the USB socket and it will charge up its battery, too.

Stereo pairing
With the Katch's stereo pairing system you can wirelessly link two speakers together. This is ideal for when you want the same sound in another room or just twice the power for an even more immersive sound.

Quality design
The Katch doesn't just break boundaries when it comes to sound it also features a totally unique, high quality design. Attractive to look at yet also durable, it's one of the most stylish portable speakers around. With its cute, rounded design and leather carrying handle it's just asking to be picked up and taken with you.

A joy to behold and listen to, there really is no catch to DALI's latest Bluetooth speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DALI KATCH - Dark Shadow This bluetooth speaker is just incredible and worth every penny. Following hours of research I chose the Dali Katch and believe me it does not disappoint! With 360 degree sound and zero distortion on full blast it is the only bluetooth portable you will ever need!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more! Even under these strange circumstances the service was second to none. I received really helpful advice and a mistake in the order was rectified immediately. Delivery was even quicker than i was expecting. The product itself is everything i thought it would be - really easy to set up and use, great sound, amazing battery life and super stylish! Very happy with my purchase and that i went through Richer Sounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from outdated and imperfect, but best of its kind pros: smooth engaging and spacious - best sound for size, best in class 24-hour quick-charging battery, very portable, neat EQ toggle and volume buttons, looks solid with out flashing. cons: limited outdoor use as neither rugged nor water-resistant, no previous or next track buttons, carry pouch offers next to no protection, non-standard charger, no wifi, no aux-in cable included, expensive given limitations. In sum it's small size and resulting sacrifices in sound plus no wifi means not perfect for indoor use, but isn't great for outdoor either, the future editions have much to work on as this is starting to show it's age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a big sound from something so small Purchased the Dali katch a couple of weeks ago now played all types of music in all areas of the house pressing the equaliser button to warm when nothing behind the speaker and on cool when against a wall this is a brilliant feature,because this is a actual proper speaker and doesn’t have a rubbish sub strapped to the side of it the sound quality has a lot of detail and punchy base,I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for and the Dali katch Certainly does that fantastic little product hats off to Dali.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality, attractive design Purchased recently to replace an old Soundlink ii. Felt like a frivolous purchase but after settling in using it, it now feels like a wise investment. Great sound quality, great battery life, ease of use and great design and feel of quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but... There’s no denying the Katch has a great sound so I’m very happy in that respect but switching it off is a nightmare, and also the blue light for Bluetooth flashing randomly. If it does go off, again randomly it won’t go on again unless it’s connected to mains power. I’ve checked online and other people have this apparently unresolveable problem. Could maybe accept this in a cheapo product but not at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speaker with amazing sound I am very pleased with our purchase , it excels in every aspect . Easy to set up and easy to use and link to your tablet or i pad . Would certainly recommend Richer Sounds for service and knowledge about the products .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish with clear and surprisingly powerful sound I had been researching which Bluetooth speaker to get for a while, and knowing the Dali brand from several sets of speakers I've owned over the years, I decided to go for the Dali Katch. Granted, it was not the cheapest Bluetooth speaker out there, and you can even find smart speakers with many more features for the same price. The thing is, Dali mixes style and sound like no other brand, which is also true of the Katch. It looks lovely and discreet, but the sound is surprisingly full and clear given the size of the speaker. The battery seems to last over 20 hours on a single charge, and it can even charge my smartphone via the USB port, which should come in very handy when going camping. If you don't need the features of a smart speaker, this happy camper can highly recommend the Dali Katch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dali Katch - Bluetooth Speaker Excellent ! We moved house and in down sizing sold off all our super but bulky hifi. Our favourite corner for listening to the radio seems to be in a dead zone for reception. This speaker was a stop gap solution to provide radio as well as streaming music, audio books etc. A more comfortable alternative to wireless head phones. It is extremely light and easy to carry about (important if into a podcast). Sound quality is super. Maybe a bit pricey, but long term probably worth it. This is a stop gap before getting something more serious....am looking at Sonos, KEF LSX etc which lack the portablity....so thought that this would be still useful in its own right. Tried a few other speakers but the Dali does stand out for clarity of sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defies laws of physics and some! Tonally correct and powerful enough for a large room. No it isn't a match for my Musical Fidelity and Linn Sondek but I can carry this and my smartphone around and enjoy the music I want to listen too-anywhere. Just brilliant. Richer Sounds, as ever great advice great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design, beautiful sound Bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas after much research- very crisp sound, perfect for acoustic and classical music. As previous reviewers have said, the bass is thinner than other speakers- however we have found by adjusting the settings and putting one side against a wall this balances the sound. Brilliant little speaker and very pleased with my choice! Richer Sounds were also brilliant and very helpful throughout the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound and easy to transport Excellent little speaker, providing super sound for listening to Classic FM on my Raspberry Pi when I'm busy at home working on the desktop and for listening to Wagner on my iphone when I'm stuck in a hotel room when travelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvellous Bought this two years ago. It is used all the time - indoors and out. The sound is superb. Not too basey- well balanced and pure. We absolutely love it. We had never heard of it before going into Richer Sounds- completely the right choice for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound! The Dali Katch has really fantastic sound - crisp and clear. Only reason I've not awarded five stars is the first one I bought had a fault - it wouldn't turn off. Richer Sounds were great and replaced it straightaway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent help in the shop - excellent product I have been looking at reviews for WiFi speakers for - well too long. I went into Richer Sounds and listened to quite a few and really appreciated the difference. The shop assistants were knowledgeable & I played my own music. I purchased a Dali Katch & am very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive sound Didn't really know which portable speaker we wanted when we set out, we were shown several different options and listened to them all in the sound room and the Dali Katch stood out for us, a good solid sound good bass and good top end, it was very very impressive, we use it in our front room and kitchen and it comfortably fills the rooms with clear quality sound, on top of that it's totally portable with huge battery life and it looks funky as well, not the cheapest portable by far but worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound from a well designed unit. Had for about a week. Room positioning makes a big difference to bass response. Pretty expensive but probably worth it. Get the googlechromecast audio

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One is good, two is meddlesome and annoying We bought our first DK a couple of years ago, and like new parents, we enjoyed having one so much we thought ‘Why not get another?’ If only we had known..... The sound from each is great, as many others have said. We had thought that having two, and hooking up for a genuine stereo sound, would be mind blowing. Sadly, the logistics of doing so cleanly have proved maddeningly tricky. We managed the hook up fine. The trouble was, one or other speaker kept dropping signal. Richer Sounds recommended a firmware reset. This caused one speaker to pack up entirely. Thankfully RS replaced it without quibble. A second diagnostic session with them led to a call to Dali themselves. The apparently laid back dude on the other end immediately said something like ‘Yeah, the second speaker will be trying to pair with other Bluetooth devices. You need to make sure there’s no other devices in the vicinity. Happens all the time.’ Ah. So, how practical is that, given modern devices? Now if we want stereo music, we just have to disable all Bluetooth enabled devices in a 12 block area, frisk any visitors for same, and set phasers to stun. Oh, and the device you are using? Make sure you have disconnected the second DK speaker from its Bluetooth memory too, or it won’t play either. Sitting alone, I just spent 10 minutes sweeping the area of rogue signals and making sure my babies were both playing. Duly set up, I can confirm that the stereo sound is wonderful, truly a treat. But it is a rare treat indeed, given the impracticality of the set up shenanigans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely to look at, easy to use, great sound There are so many bluetooth speakers on the market, but this caught my eye. So far it seems to be worth every penny - it looks fantastic on my sideboard, the round is great, with a nice resonant deep sound, and it is the easiest thing to connect to and use. I can't fault it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best portable speaker on the market I used this for my stag party, perfect size to put in your hand luggage, and sound quality is superb! Thanks for the great advice richer sounds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DALI KATCH Fantastic DALI Katch bluetooth speaker. I love it use it everyday, great purchase particularly useful when in the garden, really like the colour and it fits nicely on a table sideboard or shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound in a great shape Bought this as a portable speaker for my wife. Fits nicely in her bag and produces excellent sound for the size. Was a bit pricey but no regrets. *I was influenced by the fact that I have 5 Dali speakers in the living room and we are all happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dali Katch Not only is this a remarkable piece of audio equipment but the agreed price, service and relaxed style & knowledge of the manager so impressed that when product and service are of such quality, well we bought another one. Not quite what we expected when we walked into Richer Sounds at Reading.The Dali is not cheap but is quite remarkable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb service My first speaker arrived in a crushed box, visited the local shop in Exeter... no hassle, speaker replaced, even though it was £50 in store they honoured the online price and refunded the delivery cost... perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds Good/Looks Good This is the second Dali Katch I've bought as I wanted to replace my main HiFi system, which was an old Bose set up which had suffered from a dead amplifier. The Bose also had masses of cables connecting the speakers using non standard connectors i.e. tying one in to Bose equipment. It's fiddly getting the two Dali Katch speakers to work as a stereo pair but I've had intermittent success and hope to get it sorted eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality build with great sound I bought a pair of these Bluetooth speakers about Month ago and have had a chance to play with them. They are good quality speakers with a good sound range. I have paired up 2 to give me stereo sound which is as good as a normal stereo system in my opinion. The battery life is impressive. They are not small speakers and have a fair weight to them but have a neat carry handle and come with a charging / masons cable and a pouch to keep it in. All in all very pleased, not cheap but definitely good quality. Time will tell as to whether any of the problems others have reported come to light.
