My budget is around the 6k mark (but not immovable within a grand or so if worth the money). This set up is to go into our new house - yet to complete, so I have time, but not 100% sure...

    Dali Opticon 6 bi-wire

To my amazement , the sound improved very distinctively: clearer and more informative treble, tighter bass and better timing. Source was Tidal from Yamaha NP-S303...

    Question Dali Opticon Vokal; can it be used for all 3 front speakers.....

    Anyone try this? I have an Opticon Vokal and love the sound, but 'the wife' says I can't mount an Opticon/Rubicon LCR on the wall, and I haven't got the room for Opticon 5/Rubicon 5 floor standers. I also want to keep the ribbon tweeter across all 3 so that rules out the Opticon 2/Rubicon 2. I...

    Dali Opticon 1 or Dynaudio Emit M10?

    Hi Just looking for any opinions on either of the above for listening to music in a small room. Partnering equipment would be Rega Planar 3, Rega Brio amp and Marantz Cd6004. Clarity and detail more important to me than absolute bass "oomph". Any advice or opinions appreciated.

    Question Dali Opticon 2 or Dali Zensor 5 for movies and good music.

    Dali Opticon 2 or Dali Zensor 5 for Movies and great sounding Stereo Music?? I know the Opticons are higher end and slightly more expensive. The Yamaha AVR-3060 is a great Stereo Amplifier I'm told, and better than a budget Yamaha, Denon 2 channel/Stereo Amp. I used to have the Denon 720 Amp...
