DALI ZENSOR 1 WHITE AX POWERED

DALI ZENSOR 1 WHITE AX POWERED

  • $995.00


The ZENSOR 1 AX is based on the technology of the ZENSOR 1. They share the same passive crossover, which is paramount for getting the characteristic ZENSOR sound quality. The build-in amplifier is integrated in the left speaker, while the right speaker is a passive ZENSOR 1 speaker.

PRODUCT DETAILS

 

Imagine a world where music just flows, where all you needed was a set of speakers. No complex electronics, no unwanted cables, no jumble of remote controls, nothing but pure uncomplicated enjoyment.

DALI ZENSOR AX series set you free from the electronics traditionally associated with a high quality audio experience. Both the stand mount and the floor standing model come complete with all you need. They require nothing extra, just connect the mains and you are ready to play.

The build in 2 x 50W stereo all digital amplifier delivers the audio signal to both loudspeakers and is designed to bring out the best from its ZENSOR host regardless of the signal type. You can use Bluetooth and Apt-X if your device supports it, you can connect an analogue source with a mini-jack or an optical via TOSLink.

The ZENSOR 1 AX is based on the technology of the ZENSOR 1. They share the same passive crossover, which is paramount for getting the characteristic ZENSOR sound quality. The build-in amplifier is integrated in the left speaker, while the right speaker is a passive ZENSOR 1 speaker.

Place the ZENSOR 1 AX on a shelf, on a stand, or mount it directly on the wall and start playing music via Bluetooth. Connect your TV via the optical input or any type of traditional audio player via the analogue input.

The ZENSOR AX series has all of the virtues of a traditional stereo system with none of the down sides.

  • HI-FI quality audio without the hassle of bulky electronics
  • Classic DALI trademarks – Wood Fibre cones and large Soft Dome tweeter
  • 2 x 50 Watts fully digital amplifier
  • Bluetooth (Apt-X), Optical and Analogue inputs
  • Subwoofer output

AMPLIFIER

Driving the ZENSOR AX series is a fully digital Class-D 2 x 50 Watts amplifier. 

Making full use of the purely digital signal path, the Optical input reads any TOSLink signal with a sampling rate between 32 – 176.4 KHz at a bit rate from 16 to 24 bit. The Optical signal is passed to the DSP and then onwards to the amplifier. 

Both the analogue signal and the signal from the Bluetooth interface is passed through the A/D converter and converted from its analogue state into a 24 bit 96 KHz digital signal. Sampling 
the analogue signal from the Bluetooth receiver helps make any noise more random and way more musical. This together with the high quality Apt-X compression format supported by the 
ZENSOR AX helps keep the Bluetooth audio signal at the best possible quality level. Once the signal has passed through the A/D converter, it is then passed onto the DSP. 

DALI believes in a hands-off approach to the audio signal and therefore no equalisation is performed on the signal by the DSP. The main function of the DSP is to handle non-clipping 
controlling, thereby keeping the signal clear and powerful at any frequency. 

The amplifier receives a PWM signal at 384 KHz from the DSP, which is then digitally amplified by the 50 Watts RMS Open Loop amplifier. The amplified signal is then received by the passive 
crossover that distributes the signal to the drivers. 

Feeding every component in the amplifier is the auto sensing switch mode power supply, which is capable of working from 100V to 240V.

TWEETER

With a clear heritage from our high end series, the lightweight dome tweeter offers best in class resolution. It features timing due to the position of the tweeter, minimised compression and increased power handling, thanks to the vented voice coil former. The damping material under the dome minimises reflections from the pole piece.

WOOFER

The 5.25” ZENSOR 1 woofer feature 4-layer voice coils for maximum control of the wood fibre cone. The low loss construction is ensured by a rigid metal basket and meticulously optimised cone. The result is bass authority, well-controlled reproduction of micro-detail and great transient capabilities.

CABINET

CNC machined MDF board, dressed in a top-of-the-class laminate forms the framework of the speaker. 

In order to optimise timing, the ZENSOR’s are fitted with acoustic damping material internally along the sides, top and bottom - but not on the rear side of the front baffle as this creates a more direct contact between woofer and bass port. The audible result is a more precise bass and increased ‘attack’ in the midrange.
