About this item
- WOOD FIBRE CONES: Dali’s low-loss drivers uses a mix of low-mass paper cones with wood fibre reinforcement. The embedded wood fibres give the surface an uneven structure, which dramatically minimizes the resonance of the surface. This creates the best possible reproduction of every detail in the audio signal.
- AMPLIFIER FRIENDLY: The amplifier friendly design makes the SPEKTOR series a perfect fit for almost any of the amplifiers in its price category. No matter if we look at compact Hi-Fi, stereo amplifiers or surround receivers, SPEKTOR will bring out the best in them, showing you just how good music and movies can sound.
- SOFT DOME TWEETER: The dome tweeter offers best-in-class resolution with an extended frequency response, wide dispersion and low coloration. A clear heritage from Dali’s high-end series. The tweeter is based on an ultra-lightweight weaved fabric, which weighs less than half of the market standard (0.056 mg/mm2).
- LOW SIGNAL LOSS: By using only DALI designed and custom-built drivers, the need for frequency correction in the crossover is eliminated. This enables Dali to design an exact crossover which together with carefully selected quality components ensures that the signal loss is close to zero.
- Accessories Included: Rubber Feet, Manual, Wall Bracket

Whilst still being a compact speaker, the SPEKTOR 2’s larger inner volume delivers extra bass performance. The increased surface areas of the 5¼” woofer and 25 mm soft dome tweeter increases the overall sound pressure levels, making this the perfect choice for larger rooms that still require a compact speaker. The SPEKTOR 2 will also find itself at home in any surround position, helping you get that fully immersive movie experience.
Features: WIDE DISPERSION: DALI makes it easy to integrate your loudspeakers into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the SPEKTOR 2 have been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. TWEETER: The SPEKTOR 2 tweeter is able to render high frequencies with high accuracy. This means very short excursions, but at high speed, - or rather – with high acceleration. In other words, it features a low moving mass and a strong motor. WOOFER: The increased surface areas of the 5¼” woofer increases the overall sound pressure levels, making this the perfect choice for larger rooms that still require a compact speaker. LOW LOSS: By using only DALI designed and custom-built drivers, the need for frequency correction in the crossover is eliminated. This enables us to design an exact crossover out of quality components which ensures that the signal loss is close to zero.

The Diamond 220s were a pretty balanced speaker top to bottom, but lacked excitement for me. The highs extended well past the Dentons, but not as high as the Specktors. This was not an issue for me because I already own the 210s and am very happy with them. It was the bottom end especially that disappointed me with the 220s. I have never liked their plinth port design (Also Featured on the Reva 4 which I also own, but absent on my 210s). It just sucks the life out of the bass of the speaker. It may make placement easier in a room, but what you are left with is a speaker with a lack in punch and presence in the low end. They have no authority. Kick drums are found bouncing around the room in every direction rather than slapping you in the chest. No.
The Dentons were very warm and subtle. The bass was strong and very present. Mid range was excellent, and overall they were very smooth warm from top to bottom. They thrive with certain recordings and definitely prefer more natural analog material. Their notorious "Veiled" top end isn't so much veiled, the high details are certainly there, but you just have to find them. They don't jump out at you. I also must mention that to my surprise the Dentons did not image well. There was no wide sound stage to be found here. They were closed up and revealed no exciting center activity. All in all these speakers happened to be extremely well tamed and neutral, which for some professional and amateur engineers might be perfect. But I like to hear every detail in my recordings. I want every tiny mistake to be mine to find and correct, not the person down the road that happens to pick up a pair of the last speakers on my list and get a glimpse of what is really behind the "Veil".
The Specktors are an exciting speaker. Their new tweeter that features an unusually thin and lightweight soft dome material was what originally drew me to them. I read about their new "Thin and light" approach on their website and thought "This sounds like a great design strategy. I need this.". Their woofer design also had me sold before I even submitted my order. I read that they are crafted from a mix of fine grained paper and wood fibre pulp. "F***, sign me up." I thought. I like my highs to be detailed, extended and transparent. Thin and light sounds like the way to get there. I like my lows to be warm and full and natural. Paper/Wood fibers sounds like the way to get there too. I was excited.
When they arrived they were pretty much what I expected. The cabinets were unimpressive, which for me is usually a big problem. I consider myself a decent craftsmen and build furniture from time to time. I always appreciate a beautifully finished real wood veneer (like my old Monitor audio Silver 6s), but I was not aiming towards beauty for this room, so they were fine.
As soon as I hooked them up I was impressed. I drive them through a modest Teac UD-301 and Adcom GFA-535ii straight from my Mac and they sing beautifully. Full and present bottom end with a real good punch. Crisp, clean and incredibly transparent highs. Great imaging. Honest and humble mid range. I am very happy with their performance. But I feel that their greatest strength, especially as this price point, is their ability to bring you right into the music. Their is no veil, there is no space whatsoever between you and the music. The vocals are right there. You can reach out and touch them. They are dead center and sound as if you might feel the wind from their breath. I believe it is this accuracy at the highest of highs of our very limited hearing spectrum that brings these vocal and instrumental details to the forefront. I and I believe that "thin and lightweight" were the building blocks of that strength.

Really good for al types of music.
Dali beat most other speaker makers into a cocked hat in my opinion.
Was hat mir an dem Lautsprecher gut gefallen:
Für TV und Surround gut: Da der Lautsprecher auf TV und Surround errechnet wurde, gibt er über einen Verstärker den Fernsehton gemessen am Preis sehr gut rüber. Durch die Auslegung auf eine TV-/ Surround-Box ist er naturgemäß sehr mittenbetont. Dies führt jedoch zwangsläufig hierzu:
Was hat mir an dem Lautsprecher nicht gefallen:
Für Musik (als kleine HiFi-Box) ist der Lautsprecher völlig unbrauchbar, da der Ton viel zu mittenbetont und viel zu flach ist. Selbst mit angepasstem 12-Band-Equilizer kann man den Lautsprecher zur Musikwiedergabe vergessen.
Warum komme ich zu dieser Einschätzung?
Leider -und das ist mittlerweiles ein generelles Problem beim Lautsprecherkauf- kann man zu normalen Preisen keine konventionellen HiFi-Lautsprecher mehr kaufen. Alle bezahlbaren Lautsprecher sind auf TV bzw. AV (Surround) gerechnet. Leider betrag das sogar die 2.000 EUR-Box, die wir uns beim großen Einzelhändler mit dem "S" angeschaut haben. Die unterschiede zu einer Regalbox waren (außer bei den Hochtönern) bei Musik sogar so marginal, dass wir dann bei Amazon diese Lautsprecher bestellt haben. Da die o.g. Regallautsprecher aber letzendlich doch nur für TV und AV zu gebrauchen sind, haben wir sie jetzt auf den Campingplatz gestellt.
Wie habe ich das Problem gelöst?
Meine HiFi-Lautsprecher hae ich mittlerweile selbst gebaut (gekauft bei dem Elektronikladen mit dem "C"). Klingt bei TV schön voll und bei Musik nun auch wieder nach HiFi. Ein simpler Breitbandlautsprecher ohne Frequenzweiche oder viel Lötarbeit kann HiFi. So simpel und klanglich so deutlich besser. Wer hätte das für möglich gehalten...
