THE ABSOLUTE PINNACLE
Musical indulgence like never before
The absolute pinnacle of the EPICON series, the EPICON 8 delivers a dramatically rich and detailed sound that will blow your mind and captivate your senses. The loudspeaker is the result of a passionate, tireless quest for perfection. Prepare yourself for musical indulgence like never before and a beautifully striking design that you will love to own.
Reducing distortion with Soft Magnetic Compound
For years, designing magnet systems has been a DALI speciality. For the EPICON 8, we decided to challenge the highest performance standards and to take magnet system design further than ever before. The answer was Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC) material, which combines extremely high magnetic conductivity and very low electrical conductivity to deliver a dramatic reduction in distortion caused by mechanical loss in the magnet system.
A transparent and solid rendering
The DALI hybrid tweeter module features a 29 mm soft dome tweeter and a 10 x 55 mm ribbon element that combine to create an amazing rendition of high-frequency details. The soft dome voice-coil is extremely light and agile, which helps deliver a broader bandwidth. The ribbon tweeter is the master of wide dispersion and, in combination with the soft dome, reaches as low as 2.5 kHz, providing continuous wide dispersion as the soft dome becomes more directional at higher frequencies. This extreme bandwidth and ultra-wide dispersion is an important part of DALI’s sound philosophy.
WOOD FIBRE WOOFERS
Manufactured at our production facilities in central Denmark
At DALI, we believe in designs based on low mechanical loss, and we were among the first to master the control of frequency response through carefully balanced designs. Designs such as our wood fibre cone technology with its light, rigid and randomly uneven structure that reproduces the finest details and dynamics in the music with very low loss of information.
Blending elegant design and functionality
The EPICON 8 is a masterclass in elegant loudspeaker design, with curved lines and a real-wood veneer finished with 10 layers of lacquer, each hand polished to a deep gloss. But the cabinet is also functional. With no parallel surfaces, unwanted reflections are practically eliminated, while the rigid construction provides a solid platform and an acoustically tuned ‘spring’ for the drivers, which helps to eliminate resonant energy. Separate chambers inside the cabinet also allow each woofer to be individually tuned to perfection, and bass ports located directly behind the bass and midrange drivers minimise turbulence and deliver exceptional timing.
