Dali IKON 2

Is the Dali visually satisfied IKON 2 sound as good as you?

  1. Dali IKON 2
  2. Data sheet

The developers of the Danish manufacturer of Dali chose a Solomonic compromise: the Ikon 2 has a 35 mm lens for the field of brilliance and a tie for the highest heights. Technically makes sense: The great canopy would bundle up too much. The bracelet shines as wider, comes this not so deep down. The measurement shows a clean transition without significant cancellations. Including working a low-midrange driver with Brown membrane made of wood fibres, supported by a rear reflex tube. With regard to the optics, convinced the Ikon: the surface is hardly of a real wood veneers to distinguish, the remote baffle has a clean finish, the terminals are elegant.

Compared to the slightly dense play of the focal went Dali a sound-colour special way: your restrained tone turned the young Pavarotti on Verdi’s “Requiem” (Solti) verschlankt in the area, heavily worked out the brilliant details of the historical record. With rather bright rock slices from the 1980s about progressive “Fugazzi” tipped the tonality then in the Flash, which is why the AUDIO crew Dali pointed to a place on the rear panel – with a few centimeters distance.

Audible did well contoured bass, free-standing still too quiet. The tonal balance to the lower centre of the weak, however, was unable to correct. With more dark shots the Ikon in the near field thanks to its detail appetite could gain some points, at higher levels, the acoustic then anything but aimlessly wandered around between the four tweeters and lost of cleanliness.
