Bears traces of lift due to the spirit of the times the angular, seemingly dating back to the 1980s lecturer 8 in detail, but she seems rather oldfashioned alone due to their rather hulking proportions especially in the walnut Variant. The design is reminiscent of the good old days: the 8 is a real 3-way box with chassis in three different sizes.

She wears while loosening metal applications on the Matt Black front, but is a real Brummer with double 20 woofers and huge reflex opening forward, already before even the right lay on a full bass. This can have not even English – German translation for ” muscle game the northern lights, because there is still a second reflex tube, which optically unobtrusive flows backwards. The estuaries should be spared by rounding of flow noise. The cone Mebranen of mid-range and woofer consist of coated cardboard with stiffening by wood fibre, a material with high inner damping. This material mix already proved itself in the high-end series Helicon (AUDIO 11/07). In the high frequency range, 8 on a comparatively large fabric dome with a diameter of 28 millimetres trusts the lecturer.
Other boxes may seem more elegantly what the odds can be to move the box on the better half passing in the House. Although it’s also only on the right note: verbal acrobats announcing her lecturer couple the words “Honey, you have surely nothing against a real Dali in the” good “, or?”, have certainly greatest chances to overcome the first hurdle in the Holy of Holies.
The appearance of Dali began with a slight shock. Coincidentally, the Eagles first played track already revealed her only significant weakness: your bass applying something reflected in the readings in the form of a strong 100-Hertz peaks. Artist bad luck, because right after the Dane by sensitive, balanced and extremely realistic guitar sounds liked had to digest the box a sophisticated bass content in the program – and he demanded all her in her critical area.
The powerful bass drum from “Hotel California” is the live version really, and the lecturer 8 scraping with their performance Hairy to the Brummigkeit pass. It was clear already after a short time at least, how the site recommendation would be: only for large areas, as free-standing. After all, the contour in the bass, which certainly should provide with home theater and performances in the circle of friends some amazement, not to appear as drunky stoick was enough. And thus, the Dali laid the basis for a play that you know from countless Hollywood films are preferably filled with actors like Sylvester Stalone: the hero must first insert and WINS his fight after a slightly botched start masterfully. While no one acted after the start the Dali as a genuine title aspirants in the listening room, but did she no single Patzer himself subsequently more – and at the same time with every other bar a lot of persuasion.
The stage in the dimensions grew up with “my flame burns blue” or with Richard of Wagner’s “Lohengrin” (Abbado, EMI) quite a bit over the two competitors. But their extremely natural for this class sounds that came to fruition not only with voices, but also especially with guitars, strings and pianos were the best thing about the editor 8. Here, the balance between marking and end of the strings and the Woody-looking body fit just perfectly. Also the dynamic and detail resolution convinced completely. The Dane had smoother swing sounds while they away usually broke.
Where the two other pairs in the test tended to be baking votes and accoustics components to a slightly artificial aura, she produced the feeling of listening to a singer in a reverberant room – such as with more “comment qu’a moy lonteinne” (“the medieval romantics”, Hyperion). The music always came to the listener and hit no matter how fine background information, even if it was a residual band noise or other recording errors.
The Dali went so far in their performance to combine apparent opposites. Because their extremely voluminous bass was by no means slowly they act. She gave punch and liveliness any kind of music, the notes seemed to be coming off out of nowhere. With perfect timing, she mastered also electro-pop like Depeche Mode (“remixes 81… 04 “, mute). The rhythm of the synthpop classic new mixed by DJs such as Kruder and Dorfmeister went directly at the feet of which the one or the other time with bobbed.
Thus the Dali couple stole the show the strong rival with increasing duration of hearing more and more, although it did not quite up to their elegant touch up in the heights. Next to her, the speaker from Heco worked and Mordaunt almost like anchormen young stars from the talent show alongside a hard-edged Hollywood veterans like Clint Eastwood’s. What proved was that corresponds to the above described pithy appearance and the sound. All doubt to dispel what sound picture is not only thrilling but also real, we built for comparison the KEF iQ 90 (test in issue 5/09, 81 points, top class) on. Apart from the fact that the Petite Englishwoman was not quite as much emphasis, but more precision and contour in the bass, both went tonally in the same direction what showed on the sustainability of the Danish vote. The KEF kept minimal nose front due to the higher precision and depth. Nevertheless DALI offers an attractive alternative for those who want something nice and deftiger.
