Compact but with musical muscle, the Dali Opticon 2 is a stand mount speaker with real presence.


Audiophile-grade drive units for the finest sound

Featuring low-loss, wood fibre woofers that are based on Dali's reference grade Epicon speakers and a soft dome tweeter, the Opticon 2 delivers sound good enough to please the most demanding. Designed for precision and accuracy of sound, the Opticon 2 lets you hear the music exactly as the musician intended. Although only a stand mount speaker, the generous cabinet volume helps give the Opticon 2 a powerful and dynamic sound.

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
Ideal for small to medium-sized rooms, Dali have designed the Opticon 2 to be as flexible as possible. Able to operate effectively from just 10cm from a rear wall, the Opticon 2 makes a room friendly choice. Alternatively, if you've got the space, the 2's are just as happy at up to 80cm from the wall.

Accurate yet powerful, compact yet musically immersive, the Dali Opticon 2s are the ideal all-rounders. 

To get the best from these premium speakers, we recommend speaker cables from premium suppliers Audioquest, Atlas, Chord and QED. Custom made lengths and terminations are also available. Please ask in store for advice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dalis stole the show! I wanted a new pair of standmount speakers as an upgrade for my KEF Q-300s. The Dali Opticon 2s were on my shortlist and I demoed them against the Monitor Audio 100, Focal Aria 906 and KEF Q550 floorstanders. In the demo room the Dalis were the pick of the bunch due to their insightful and detailed mid-range. Vocals are a particular strength having an incredibly lifelike, transparent sound. No other speakers could match the Dalis in that department and they really stood out in a demo situation. Purchase! I have had them at home for a couple of weeks now on Atacama stands and working off my Arcam A-18 amp and Cambridge 651 CD player. The Dali's mid-range qualities really shine at home as they did in the demo room. However, they still feel like a bit of a 'work in progress'. Although bass quality is very good, I would like a touch more quantity...a bit more 'grunt' to bottom out and balance the overall sound. I have moved the speakers to less than 10cm from the rear wall, but I still just want a bit more from them in the bass department. Hopefully that will come as they continue breaking in. Likewise, there is just a little too much 'top end' at the moment. This, along with the rather lean bass means that they feel a little unbalanced... ...don't get me wrong, I am enjoying listening to the Dalis and really appreciate their many strengths. Tonally, they feel like a lot of modern day speakers where top-end detail wins out over solidity, beef, and a bit of good old bass grunt. Despite all of this, I think the Dalis are well worth persisting with. If the breaking in process can smooth out the tweeter and provide even a touch more bass then you have immensely accomplished speakers and I will happily reinstate that fifth star!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sound. Big, rich, warm incredible sound Dali speakers are just fantastic but I can’t say enough about the guys at the Plymouth branch. Knowledgeable, friendly, nothing is too much trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dali Opticon 2's - a curve ball excellently thrown... I'd booked a demo session at the Edinburgh shop, looking for floor-standers - Tannoy Revolution XT 6F's and Dali Zensor 7's in the line up - using my venerable NAD C350 amp and Rotel 965-BX CD player - both good still good. XT6Fs - hmmm, well... Zensor 7's - more like it, but... Then John threw the curve ball - try these: Dali Opticon 2's. Yes, OK - stand-mounted. But I was hooked from the start. I love the way these speakers appear transparent and don't seem to have to try hard with the music - they don't get in the way. To my ears, they're good across the range - smooth and unruffled; they clearly match with my amp and CD very well (with Atlas Hyper 1.5 cables). There was no need for me to look/listen elsewhere. They're also smart, unobtrusive and compact. If you're in the market for a pair of speakers around the £500-800 mark, and have a mid-range amp and CD player - give these speakers a listen. They'll give of their best on good stands away from walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always a very pleasant experience I bought these speakers to go with the Opticon 6's that I have had for about a month. I was immediately impressed with the depth and warmth of the sound even though they have not had time to "settle down" yet. I bought these at Reading where, it seems, nothing is too much trouble. A great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised I drive these with a Quad Vena Amplifier and I get a meaty, rounded, gorgeously bass heavy, rich and delicious sound. I auditioned them at Richer Sounds, and chose them there and then... but when I got them home they sounded even better! Totally in love with these... I was a bit nervous before they arrived... since I thought there are some nice B&W bookshelves I could get for this price... but no, my worries vanishes almost immediately and I was relieved.. Really surprised... everyone was raving about the Dali Zensor 3, but the focus and coherence of these Opticon 2 speakers really blew the Z 3's out of the water... no hesitation to recommend these if you have a decent amp.
