Their scale belies their size Integration between the drivers is good, the soundstage is persuasive and there's the sort of scale and dynamism on tap that seems unlikely when you consider how small these cabinets are.
The system's subtle-as-a-bull impression, though, disappears as soon as it starts to do its thing. Not the perfect all-rounder, but few other speakers are this entertaining...
There's unflappable authority to the way the Mentor 5. Against Sounds a little lean. This Dali delivers a smooth and engaging sound with no katch.Dali Zensor 1 Review!

For Exceptionally pretty Splendid coherance and vocal detail. What Hi-Fi? Talented and urbane, the Dalis will continue to win admirers — but their limitations have been thrown into stark relief by some compelling new competitors.
This treble module combines a 28mm soft dome and a 17x45mm ribbon on a single chassis. A massive success in a gorgeous package...

Well, the problem is at the top of the frequency range. There's more bass than you'd expect, and while the sound is a tad lean, it's splendidly coherent with fine voice expression. The net result is inevitably somewhat bass-light, but not to the extent that it spoils one's enjoyment of most types of music. These dynamic floorstanders are really fast and agile, if not the final word in solidity.
