Best Surround Sound System for Stand-Out Design

Key features:
  • Dual tweeters with ribbon unit
  • Slim wall-mountable rears
  • 14-inch subwoofer driver
Hi-fi speakers don’t have to look totally boring. That could be Dali’s tagline. While they’re still big boxes, the Dali Opticon 5.1’s units at least have a look not intended to simply be covered with a fabric grille as soon as possible.

The sound is set apart from the competition by use of ribbon tweeters, as well as a standard dome tweeter. These take on frequencies 10kHz and up to provide plenty of bite with out harshness.

This is matched on the other end with a SUB K-14 F subwoofer, a truly movie-focused bass unit not afraid to shake your walls. Warn the neighbours.
