When you have the biggest selling stereo speaker of the year under your belt, the obvious thing to do is to develop it into an all-conquering home cinema system - which is exactly what DALI have just done!
The ZENSOR 1's sparkling clarity and dynamic attack make it ideal for Home Cinema, so all DALI had to do was to develop an equally sensational centre and subwoofer, then they'd have the whole thing sewn up. The centre was easy - it's essentially a doubling up of the ZENSOR 1's excellent wood-fibre bass-driver, combined with DALI's superb 25mm soft-domed tweeter. The sub was more challenging, because DALI didn't want to fall into the same trap as many other manufacturers by compromising the whole system with a cheap unit. Instead they chose to partner the ZENSOR satellites with their excellent, new E-9 F sub, which features a massive 9 inch, long throw aluminium driver, coupled with 220 watts of amplification. The overall result is astonishing, with huge levels of detail and 3-D steering, underpinned by a tight, attacking bass. This is an incredibly impressive system, but it is also relatively easy to house, because the ZENSOR 1s are attractive and compact, plus they perform brilliantly on stands, or can be flush wall-mounted, via a clever integral keyhole slot. The ZENSOR 1s have taken the stereo world by storm - looks like they're about to do the same thing in Home Cinema!
