Wireless Hi-Fi Stereo
Start with a SOUND HUB COMPACT and any choice of RUBICON C, CALLISTO C, or OBERON C speakers, and enjoy apt-X HD Bluetooth streaming or connect your CD player and other sources.
Turn things up a notch by starting with the DALI SOUND HUB and add the BluOS NPM-2i expansion module. You’ve now become part of the BluOS streaming ecosystem along with adding MQA compatibility.
Active Wireless Surround
Add the new HDMI expansion module for the DALI SOUND HUB and you now have the foundation for a high-performance wireless surround system (up to 7.1) that is easy to set up and use. Next, choose active wireless speakers from the OBERON C and RUBICON C series and add the new OBERON VOKAL C dedicated center-channel speaker. Adding the DALI WSR (Wireless Subwoofer Receiver) lets you complete the picture by adding wireless capability to any active subwoofer from any brand, making it part of your EQUI system. Now you can truly place your subwoofer anywhere in your room to get the best possible sonic results. No more wires to limit your placement options.
The SOUND HUB and SOUND HUB COMPACT wireless connection protocol is a proprietary and highly stable 30-bit digital stream broadcast over the 5.2 GHz or the 5.8 GHz band.
The robust wireless connection means that speakers can be placed as much as 10m away from a SOUND HUB or SOUND HUB COMPACT without risk of connection failure or temporary signal interruptions.
Zero Loss volume control is handled at the end of the digital signal chain – in the speakers themselves. This ensures that volume adjustment does not result in data loss through truncation of the digital word length. By placing speaker volume control at the end of the digital signal chain, directly before the digital to analogue conversion stage, a full 24-bit digital resolution is retained at all volume levels.
The total system latency is extremely low at under 15mS, meaning that the signal delay from input to speaker is so low, that you will experience no loss of lip-sync in audiovisual systems. The latency between stereo channels down to about 1 sample, which, at the systems available sampling frequency of 96 kHz, is as vanishingly little as 10uS. This results in an extremely stable stereo image and is a big part of why EQUI sounds so good.
Active speakers have several advantages over passive speakers. In OBERON C, CALLISTO C, and RUBICON C speakers, each speaker driver is connected directly to its own Class-D amplifier, thus avoiding the problems of electrical loss and impedance variation inherent in passive crossover filters. Instead, the necessary frequency filtering is done with active filters placed before the amplifier. Because these filters are implemented in the digital domain, before the digital-to-analogue conversion, they achieve much greater precision than their analogue counterparts – with none of the losses and impedance problems.
The Active Speakers
DALI RUBICON C is the active counterpart to the RUBICON series – sharing the same drivers and cabinet construction, while inheriting the amplifier technology from CALLISTO, and the wireless audio transmission from the DALI SOUND HUB. The models consist of the large floor-standing 8C, the midsize 6C tower, and the 2C bookshelf speaker.
The wireless DALI CALLISTO C speaker system re-imagines Hi-Fi for the 21st Century – without the need for complicated electronics. Playback and stream all your Hi-Res music files easily and conveniently via Bluetooth from your smart device or music server. The CALLISTO C series is made up of the floor-standing Callisto 6C and the Callisto 2C bookshelf speakers.
The OBERON C series comprises three active two-way speakers – derived from the renowned passive OBERON series – while utilizing the wireless technology developed for the CALLISTO C series. The range introduces the compact OBERON 1 C, the floor-standing OBERON 7 C, the low profile OBERON ON-WALL C, and the new OBERON Vokal C center channel speaker.
