DALI OBERON 3
The larger stand-mount DALI OBERON 3 brings the best of both worlds. Combining the large sound of a floor-standing speaker with the compact design of a stand-mount. The ultra-lightweight 29 mm soft dome tweeter seamlessly integrates with the 7″ wood fibre woofer for impressive highs, detailed and crisp mids, and surprising coherent and well-timed bass. All in all the OBERON 3 is a true showcase of DALI ideas, traditions, and inventions – all wrapped in an elegant and modern design.
The OBERON 3 brings the best of both worlds. The cabinet size enables an optimal balance between inner volume for bass performance, and a compact appearance for small rooms, discreet audio setups, or wall mounting. Combining the large sound of a floor-standing speaker with the compact design of a stand-mount, the OBERON 3 is the perfect fit for any stand-mount or shelf solution.
With the launch of the DALI OBERON loudspeaker series, we have picked the best elements from our current speakers and brought them together in a series that delivers on audio quality, looks, and versatility. The 29 mm ultra light-weight soft dome tweeter integrates seamlessly with the 7” wood fibre (SMC based) woofer for impressive highs, detailed and crisp mids, and a surprisingly coherent and well-timed bass.
The OBERON 3 is easy to integrate into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the OBERON 3 have been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern in the listening area. The same principles have been applied in the design of the crossover.
As result, you will experience a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. This is important as you are rarely seated directly in front of your loudspeakers when listening to music. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion, as these will always be stronger in an on-axis response. This is also the reason why all DALI speakers are not designed to be toed-in.
The OBERON 3 features a 7″ low-loss woofer – the same featured in the OBERON 7. The woofer has been optimised with a new wood fibre structured cone which is dedicated to reproducing the delicate midrange and bass frequency area – like every other driver made by DALI. It is constructed from a blend of fine grain paper pulp and reinforced with wood fibres, which creates a stiff, lightweight and well-behaving structure. In combination with a low-loss surround and spider suspension, this cone reproduces the micro details in the signal – unfiltered and with high accuracy.
Mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents is greatly reduced with the use of SMC in OBERON 3. These combined improvements in the magnet motor system result in a lowering of third order distortion. This allows the OBERON 3 to present longer listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing for the class.
The newly developed 29 mm ultra-light soft dome tweeter used in the OBERON 3 is manufactured by DALI and has been developed specifically for the OBERON series – combining well-proven technologies from our existing DALI ranges with new features.
The cabinet housing of the OBERON 3 is constructed from a high-density CNC machined MDF board – dressed in carefully selected high-grade vinyl. The OBERON 3 cabinet employs a very rigid construction, with solid bracings across the inside of the cabinet for reinforcement. This contributes to the stiffness and practically eliminates resonance within the cabinet.
