The slender proportioned, floor-standing and rear reflex loaded OBERON 7 C sports twin, 7” DALI wood fibre cone SMC bass/mid drivers, and the same DALI ultra-lightweight 29mm soft dome tweeter as the OBERON 1 C. Despite its size, the OBERON 7 C is a subtle performer and impresses with its ability to render any style of music naturally and lifelike, even at low volume levels. The OBERON 7 C incorporates an integral die-cast plinth fitted with attachment points for floor-spikes or compliant feet.

SoundHub w/BluOs Module

OBERON C series speakers are additionally compatible with the DALI SOUND HUB wireless audio preamplifier originally introduced with CALLISTO C series. In addition to providing Bluetooth and a variety of wired audio inputs, the SOUND HUB is equipped with facilities for future expansion and upgrade. For example, with its optional NPM-1 BluOS module installed, the SOUND HUB can provide MQA certified high resolution music streaming and multiroom functionality, as well as supporting Spotify Connect.

Bass / Mid Driver

Bass / Mid Driver

OBERON C bass/mid drivers feature our proprietary paper pulp and wood fibre composite diaphragm materials, advanced copper-coated aluminium voice-coil wire and, in particular, our unique SMC (Soft Magnet Compound) magnet technology. By introducing electrically non-conductive elements to the magnet structure, SMC significantly reduces the effect of a variety of distortion-producing mechanisms inherent to moving-coil driver architecture.

Cabinet Construction

Cabinet Construction

OBERON C cabinets are constructed from CNC-machined high strength MDF panels and finished with a variety of wood-effect or matt white laminates. The cabinets are engineered for optimum rigidity to minimise panel resonance, with corner fillets and, in the case of the larger OBERON 7 C, strategic internal cross-bracing. Corner fillets have become increasingly unusual in contemporary speaker cabinet construction but at DALI we believe they play an important role in ensuring rigidity.

Power Amplification

Power Amplification

The OBERON C power amplification comprises two 50 Watt peak, closed loop Class-D power amplifiers chosen specifically for their sound quality and dynamic ability. One amplifier powers the high frequency driver, one powers the bass/mid driver (or twin drivers in the case of the OBERON 7 C). The 100dB signal-to-noise ratio of the power amplifiers ensures that even the smallest detail in a quiet musical passage is reproduced with clarity and accuracy.

Easy Positioning

Easy Positioning

The driver materials, crossover design and geometry applied in the OBERON C series has been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. This ensures a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion. This is why all DALI speakers are not designed to be toed-in.

Patented SMC

Patented SMC

The iron pole piece of the OBERON C woofer magnet is crowned by the DALI patented SMC disk - minimizing the negative effects of the iron. The use of the SMC disk greatly reduces mechanical distortion, which lowers third order distortion. This allows for a longer listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detail for its price class.

Low Latency

Low Latency

The SOUND HUB COMPACT transmits to OBERON C speakers using a proprietary 30 bit wireless protocol derived from the acclaimed DALI SOUND HUB. Audio transmission latency from input to speaker is typically less than 15 mS, and inter-speaker timing is accurate to the single sample period of the broadcast audio data.

SoundHub w/ BluOs Module

The DALI Sound Hub features an extended range of digital and analogue inputs combined with an auto source sensing system. The Sound Hub automatically activates the right input the moment you start playing music or turn on your TV – so you can just sit back and enjoy exquisite audio.

BluOS Module

BluOS Module

The first expansion module integrates Bluesound’s incredible BluOS hi-res multi-room platform. BluOS is devised by audiophiles for audiophiles to deliver the best digital sound quality imaginable throughout your house. And because BlueSound is compatible with speakers from a variety of audiophile manufacturers, it delivers flexibility, convenience and choice as well as unparalleled quality.

Wireless Audio Transfer

Wireless Audio Transfer

The wireless connection between the Sound Hub and the speakers is an extremely stable digital connection, made on either the 2.4 GHz or the 5.8 GHz band depending on location and quality of the connection. The proprietary 30 bit protocol transfers an uncompressed I2S audio signal in 24 bit 96 kHz, utilising the remaining bits to control volume, speaker ID and other control data.

Optical Inputs

Optical Inputs

The Sound Hub features two optical inputs that are controlled differently - with a clear focus on TV and audio use. The TV input is activated by the carrier signal. This enables the Sound Hub to power up the OBERON C speaker system the second the TV is turned on. The audio input is activated by an audio signal, and by analysing the audio signal, the Sound Hub can determine if audio is played back.

MQA Certified

MQA Certified

When streamed by BluOS through the Sound Hub's wireless no-loss fully digital audio transfer, every little detail in the MQA file will find its way to the ear of the listener. BluOS was an early adopter of the MQA technology and the DALI OBERON C system now joins the nearly 30 other BluOS Enabled products by NAD Electronics and Bluesound as MQA Certified.

Quick Setup

Quick Setup

Setting up a Hi-Fi system couldn't be easier. You literally only have to connect the power chord to the Oberon C speakers and the Sound Hub followed by pushing the CONNECT button. Voilà and you are ready to stream from your phone or music server.

Mulitiple Sources

Mulitiple Sources

The Sound Hub supports a list of different sources: Bluetooth (AAC & Apt-X HD), Analogue (RCA & Mini Jack), Coaxial RCA, 2 x Optical (Audio & TV), USB output (Google Chromecast Audio) and 2 x modular expansion ports (e.g. BluOS).
