The newest reference additions to the Dali Epicon range. The reference level Epicon 8 & also the Epicon 2 to compliment the Epicon 6 which was released earlier in the year.

They do look great!

How did they sound?

I wonder if they will bring out a centre channel speaker...

Great to see that they have gone back in-house with their driver manufacturing....kind of wants me to consider Dali once again after they dropped the ball with Euphonia which replaced my Grands.

They sounded good, very clean but somehow not as musical as some of the other rooms (which could have been due to factors other than the speakers).

All the Dali speakers I listened to were clean and transparent but way too cold for me to design them as musical speakers. They could be musical with other amps though.

Hmmmm.... Do you think it's the direction they went with the hybrid ribbon? They seem to have fallen short since the Grand Series & the days of the silk dome tweeter...

Dali Grands + MC2301s make it very difficult for me to contemplate a loudspeaker upgrade. The move upwards would have to be momentous for me to justify...

I agree. I have always enjoyed Dali's looks, sound and build quality.

I heard a pair of Epicon 2s today--the sound was amazingly clear and sweet. They were driven by a Moon Audio integrated amp and CD player.
