Excerpt: Even in a group of compact standmounters, the Dalis look frivolously small. The cabinet is a smoothly curved affair, but there’s not much of it. And the mid/bass driver is just 10cm in diameter. There’s nothing trivial about the way the Dalis go about their business though. Timing, detail levels and frequency-range integration all impress, but it’s their sheer musicality that marks these out as five-star performers.
Pros: Tiny in all but sound, an expressive, engaging listen
Cons: Can’t cope with aggressive low frequencies like bigger rivals can
