DALI OBERON 7
The floor-standing DALI OBERON 7 speaker is a true showcase of DALI ideas, traditions, and inventions – all wrapped in an elegant and modern design. It redefines what is possible, both in audio quality and visual design, in its price range. The two 7″ woofers and one oversized 29 mm ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter delivers the very best in deep bass and large room performance. Despite its size, this speaker is surprisingly delicate and will impress with its ability to render any music style naturally and lifelike.
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.
This large floor-standing OBERON 7 speaker features 2 x 7” wood fibre SMC based woofers and an oversized 29 mm ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter.
This, combined with the large but elegant cabinet, delivers the very best in deep bass and large room performance. Despite its size, this speaker is surprisingly delicate and will impress with its ability to render any music style naturally and lifelike even at lower volumes. This makes the OBERON 7 perfect for almost any audio setup and any music or movie style.
With the OBERON 7, we have made it easy to integrate your loudspeakers into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the OBERON 7 has 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 7 features a pair of 7″ low-loss woofers that are 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.
The use of SMC in the OBERON 7 greatly reduces mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents. These combined improvements in the magnet motor system result in a lowering of third order distortion. This allows the OBERON 7 to present longer listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing for the class.
The brand new 29 mm ultra-light soft dome tweeter used in the OBERON 7 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 7 is constructed from a high-density CNC machined MDF board – dressed in carefully selected high-grade vinyl. The OBERON 7 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.
