Description

OPTICON 2 MK2

The OPTICON 2 MK2 is a mid-sized stand mount speaker with 6½" woofer and a 29 mm soft dome tweeter. It's a natural for high performance audio in compact to medium size listening spaces where it has room to breathe and deliver its dynamic and explicitly defined performance.

ASSEMBLED IN PAIRS 

Speakers used and enjoyed in pairs should also be built as pairs! Their manufacturing process is designed to ensure that stereo pairs of speakers are built and tested sequentially by a single manufacturing technician, using components taken in the same order from the same batch. It’s a process that helps ensure ultimate visual and acoustic pair matching.

REFLEX PORTS

The newly introduced OPTICON MK2 Dual Flare technique brings port design into the realm of aerodynamics - with exit and entry flares carefully designed to minimise turbulence. Dual Flare enables OPTICON MK2 reflex ports to remain laminar and work effectively to reinforce low frequency performance to a significantly higher volume level than would otherwise be possible.

SMC TECHNOLOGY

The SMC used in OPTICON MK2's magnet motor system has very high magnetic permeability and very low electrical conductivity. It works primarily by minimising eddy currents in the magnet system pole piece. This improves flux linearity, reducing the magnetic hysteresis. Resulting in a significant reduction of electro-acoustic distortion.

MADE IN DENMARK

Manufacture of the OPTICON MK2 series has been retained firmly at their Danish factory. Their in-house woodworking facility handles everything from cutting the MDF enclosure panels to applying the surface finishes. Assembly by hand, testing and quality approval on each and every speaker is also handled on their own assembly lines.

PRODUCT DETAILS

The mid-sized OPTICON 2 MK2 speaker is a true 2-way compact performer holding a 6½" wood fibre woofer matched with a new large 29 mm soft dome tweeter derived from the CALLISTO series.  

The OPTICON 2 MK2 offers a level of performance unavailable from any other OPTICON model. The stand mount speaker is a natural distributor of high performance audio in compact to medium sized listening spaces where it has room to breathe and deliver its dynamic and explicitly defined performance.

The manufacturing of the OPTICON 2 MK2 remains fully Danish - as with the MK1 series. Fully assembled at our factory in Denmark - from components produced in-house or sourced from the best local specialist manufacturers and further afield.

SOFT DOME TWEETER

The new unique light-weight 29 mm soft dome tweeter is derived from CALLISTO C and offers significant advances over the tweeters used in the MK1 series. The relatively small increase in diameter over the previous 28 mm tweeter results in a significant increase in dome radiating area. This means lower distortion, higher power handling, and an ability to operate at lower frequencies.

The use of the same 29 mm soft dome tweeter across all six OPTICON MK2 models results in consistency of tonal character and provides consistency of dispersion characteristics. The MK2 soft dome tweeter enables crossover frequencies as low as 2kHz to be safely employed with no risk of distortion or power handling limitations.

WOOFER

Every component of the 6½" MK2 driver is carefully designed for its positive contribution towards ideal performance. The diaphragms are made from a mix of paper and wood fibre that ensures minimal break-up resonance and gives the diaphragms their distinctive DALI trademark colour. They are terminated by rubber surrounds chosen for their soft and very flexible mechanical properties that enable free movement with minimal low frequency damping.

The driver chassis for each driver is manufactured in die-cast aluminium that provides extremely high rigidity and low resonance along with minimal extraneous influence on the internal magnet system. The mechanical design of the chassis is specifically engineered to provide minimal impedance to airflow while at the same time enabling extremely tight mechanical bonding with the speaker enclosures.

The driver were designed with a consistent focus on the DALI audio principles of low-loss, low distortion and low colouration. The ideal driver plays only what the amplifier requires, with nothing added and nothing subtracted, and DALI strives to design and manufacture drivers that approach the ideal as closely as possible.
