"The Oberon 1s are an excellent choice if you’re looking for a high quality small speaker with an unfussy nature."
DALI OBERON is a breakthrough, it’s the first entry-level loudspeaker to incorporate DALI’s patented SMC technology, drastically reducing non-linear magnetic distortion so you can hear your favourite music like you’ve never heard it before. With new oversized tweeters, wide-dispersion wood-fibre woofers and striking Danish cabinet design, DALI OBERON sets a new benchmark for affordable audiophile speakers. It’s time to rediscover the magic of music.
OBERON 1 is the smallest addition to the OBERON line up, with its ultra compact size. The cabinet size enables an optimal balance between inner volume optimised for bass performance, and a compact cabinet design suited for smaller rooms, discreet audio setups or wall mounting. Like its larger siblings, the OBERON 1 makes use of the oversized 29 mm ultra light-weight soft dome tweeter to handle the highs and detailed mids, while the SMC based 5.25" wood fibre woofer renders the lower midrange and well-timed bass.
The cabinet is composed from high-density CNC machined MDF board & finished with high-grade vinyl. The OBERON 1 cabinet is very rigid due to solid bracing across the inside of the cabinet for reinforcement. This improves the stiffness and practically eliminates resonance within the cabinet. The speakers are fitted with acoustic damping material internally along the sides, top and bottom. This creates a more direct contact between woofer and bass port. The audible result is a more precise bass and increased ‘attack’ in the midrange.
OBERON utilises a 29 mm ultra-light soft dome tweeter, the large size of the membrane lets the tweeter generate higher sound pressure with less excursion, keeping the voice coil motion to a precise minimum. The membrane is constructed based on an ultra-light wave weave fabric and is additionally optimised for a larger bandwidth in its lower frequency area. This ensures the optimal handover from the midrange woofer to the tweeter, creating a well-balanced, unforced and very coherent upper midrange.
The 5.25" low-loss woofer used in the OBERON 1 has been optimised with a new wood fibre structured cone. It is dedicated to reproduce the delicate midrange and bass frequency area. It is constructed from a blend of fine grain paper pulp and reinforced with wood fibres, which creates a stiff, light-weight 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.
DALI makes it easy to integrate your loudspeakers into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the OBERON series 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. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and 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 DALI OBERON series is available in four finishes: Black Ash, White, Dark Walnut and Light Oak. Matched with a matte black or white front baffle. The OBERON series introduces a brand new front grille design with rounded edges that add a lighter and contemporary visual look to the speaker series. 'Mountain Grey' is the standard grille supplied with the light finishes while Shadow Black is standard on the dark finishes. Marshmallow White is available as an accessory.
With the use of SMC in the OBERON 1 woofer, mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents is greatly reduced. This improvement in the magnet motor system results in a lowering of the third order distortion. This allows the OBERON 1 to present longer listening pleasure with a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing for the class.
