Bought these speakers together with the new Denon M38 CD DAB player - but because the Denon player came first I plugged it into my old B&W speakers with a very noticeable improvement. Then a day later plugged the newly delivered Dali Zensor 1 speakers in to the Denon M38 and the sound improvement was simply awesome. Effortless depth, combined with sparkling, dynamic detail. I was glad no-one else was in as I cranked up the volume to really test the speakers. If you closed your eyes you would not believe these are so-called 'bookshelf' size.
They can be wall-mounted or put, yes, on a bookshelf; but if you do they have thoughtfully supplied some little rubber feet to presumably eliminate any possible vibration - although I haven't detected any so far without yet putting the feet on.
The Denon M38 and these Dali 1's make for a superb value package in my opinion coming in at less than £400 even with some new speaker leads bought separately.
