Small but deceptively powerful, the Dali Opticon 1 is a mighty miniature.


Audiophile-grade drive units for the finest sound

Featuring the same low-loss, wood fibre woofers that are found in Dali's reference grade Epicon speakers and a brand new soft dome tweeter, the Opticon 1 delivers sound good enough to please the most demanding. Designed for precision and accuracy of sound, the Opticon lets you hear the music exactly as the artist intended.

Dali in-house cabinets made to the highest standards
Rather than 'buying in' cabinets, Dali produces the Opticon cabinets in-house. This means they can be sure of the quality and consistency of build. The solid cabinets have been designed for low levels of resonance giving low distortion and helping to promote a natural sound. A bass reflex port makes the speakers more efficient and boosts the bass response; especially at lower volume levels. Finished in black, white or walnut, there's a cabinet finish to match your decor.

The versatile speaker
With compact dimensions the Opticon 1 is ideal for a wide range of uses. Perfect as a quality speaker in a smaller room and even good enough to be used as a desktop monitor for music producers, the Opticon 1 is a true reference performer. Alternatively, the Opticon 1s can be used as satellite speakers for a breathtakingly impressive high-end home cinema speaker system.

For big sound from a small cabinet the Dali Opticon 1 sets the standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact but superb So glad to have decided on these speakers, with a little help from richer sounds staff, the sound is wonderful with the bass adjustment. I was originally going for B & W speakers, but these are so much more compact , and the overall sound is so good. Would recommend these Speakers for both looks and performance.Thank you richer sounds of Cheltenham

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shearer clarity and precision Top class service ,I thought at first he was trying his salesman pitch, but Kirt knew exactly what I wanted . He put the larger than life DALI option 1 on as a benchmark. Then we listened to several different speakers up £800 mark , a few floorstanders matched the bass , but as far as mid range and top end nothing came close to the shear clarity and precision of these little monsters . Go spend some time in the sound room it's free and will save disappointment buying speakers for there looks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best These are relatively small, neat speakers - but the claritty and definition they afford is superb. I have not heard a better sound from speakers of this price and size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crystal sound Darren at richesounds Holborn provided a great service and organised an listening test with different amps and speakers. He assisted me throughout the decision process and they also helped with a non-standard delivery option. I was a little concerned about the price and size of these little gems. Soon after listening to them I immediately realised the power, clarity and crystal sound they can offer. The base is beautiful despite their tiny size, they go through every frequency with attention to the tiniest detail. For some ears the mid-range may push out more than other "warmer" speakers. They are definitely worth the price and are great for rooms with limited space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arcam Separates Hi Fi system I found the system easy to assemble and on its stand it is elegant and unobtrusive. The sound quality from the CD player and the turntable is excellent and the amplifier has more than enough power for my needs. I had reason to call Arcam for advice on turning the amplifier to standby mode and found the customer services representative helpful and responsive. Overall I am very satsified with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed My old speakers had given up the ghost and I needed some fairly compact but good quality speakers to play some records through. These fitted the bill perfectly and I got some great advice and a good price in the shop. Many thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning performance! I was sceptical when recommended these that power and bass could be realised from such a small box. However, these speakers deliver everything and more that the manufacturers suggest. I am running them from a restored 1970 Sansui 50W receiver and they absolutely belt out power whilst retaining depth of bass, clarity and delivering a rich, warm sound from many different genres of music that I play- from reggae to rock and classical etc. Size matters! These fit a regular bookshelf without compromise on performance. If space is not an issue you may have more options but I think these Dali's must be the ultimate size/performance speakers.
