This thread is really interesting for a DALI adept. I have not finished reading all pages. A lot of Helicon owners here (nice!) and even some Mentor 8 owners (thát's special, there are not many - at least as far as I know). Someone bought the DALI helicon 800 for his son, and the Megaline for himself (I wish my father could do that). I wonder what happened.. have to read more. Also lots of discussions about amps. Good Good, I like that
It seems I am the only Mentor 8 owner in the Netherlands ;-) , and also one of the few Dutch into DALI Helicon/Mentor. Most people here don't like the DALI sound. I wonder why? What is it about the DALI sound that most audiophiles don't like? Most reactions I get are:
"they are nice but there are much better speakers" or "they sound bright" & "the Helicon (and with that the Mentor) are not really audiophile, DALI made a big mistake but with the Epicon they straightened that out" or "DALI's sound too bright and muffled at the same time".
I know this is all subjective and maybe not even worth talking about. But still I wonder..if you guys get to hear the same and how do you respond?
