Dali releases diminutive Zensor Pico speaker range

DALI ZENSOR PICODanish speaker maker, Dali, has managed to shrink its Zensor range whilst keeping all things that have made many people happy.

As more and more of us are having to live in increasingly compact homes these days having monster floor-standing speakers is usually at the sacrifice of something else – a sofa perhaps – so having a more sympathetically proportioned hi-fi and home cinema system is the way forward.

The Dali Zensor range has always delivered great award-winning performance for its size but the addition of the new Dali Zensor Pico series takes the sound per cubic cm ratio to another level.

Comprising of the Zensor Pico and Zensor Pico Vokal (centre speaker), the Lilliputian new designs are, essentially, a scaled down (about 30% smaller) Zensor One .

The Dali Zensor Pico measures a London flat-friendly 230 x 141 x 196 mm (HxWxD) and weighs 3kg.

They use exactly the same 25mm treble driver, married to a 4.5-inch mid-bass driver, all housed in a tiny bass-reflex cabinet that’s designed for on-wall or near wall mounting (both models have integral keyhole mounting brackets), making them ideal for small/mid-sized rooms.

dali zensor pico 5.1As it uses the same tweeter as the rest of the Zensor series there are plenty of mix and match options but Dali recommends home cinema fans to make a beeline for the Dali Zensor Pico 5.1 System. This combines two pairs of the Pico speakers, a Pico Vokal plus the award-winning E-9-F Subwoofer. With a 170 watt power amplifier driving its 9-inch aluminium bass driver, this downwards ported design (to enable near wall positioning) gives a response down to 35Hz (+/- 3dB). In other words, it should move serious amounts of air!

Combined with the Pico’s diminutive nature this means the package can be considered as a candidate for space-constrained situations where even the Zensor One package would have been regarded as too imposing.

The Zensor Pico and the Zensor Pico Vokal are available in Black, White or Light Walnut, enabling you to mix and match them with other members of the Zensor family.
