DALI OBERON ON-WALL C
The wall-mounted OBERON ON-WALL C is intended to find a role in any size room that includes a TV with space for speakers on both sides. However, the OBERON ON-WALL C is equally adept at reproducing all audio formats and is part of DALI's wireless Hi-Fi eco system.

The driver materials, crossover design and geometry applied in the OBERON C series has been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. This ensures a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion. This is why all DALI speakers are not designed to be toed-in.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT transmits to OBERON C speakers using a proprietary 30 bit wireless protocol derived from the acclaimed DALI SOUND HUB. Audio transmission latency from input to speaker is typically less than 15 mS, and inter-speaker timing is accurate to the single sample period of the broadcast audio data.
The iron pole piece of the OBERON C woofer magnet is crowned by the DALI patented SMC disk - minimizing the negative effects of the iron. The use of the SMC disk greatly reduces mechanical distortion, which lowers third order distortion. This allows for a longer listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detail for its price class.
The OBERON ON-WALL C power amplification comprises two 50 Watt-peak, closed-loop Class-D power amplifiers chosen specifically for their sound quality and dynamic ability. One amplifier powers the high frequency driver and one powers the bass/mid driver. The 100dB signal-to-noise ratio of the power amplifiers ensures that even the smallest detail in a quiet musical passage is reproduced with clarity and accuracy.
The electronic module mounted on the rear panel of the OBERON ON-WALL C incorporates a wireless receiver element and user setup interface, a DSP equalisation and crossover filter element, and a high efficiency two channel power amplifier with a closely integrated power supply.
Powering the amplifier is a custom designed (65W(rms)), very low noise switched mode supply that is able dynamically to share resources between the two amplifier channels in response to demand. The OBERON ON-WALL C is, as a result, unusually frugal in terms of power consumption, yet gives nothing away in terms of dynamic punch when the music demands it.
The OBERON ON-WALL C was designed with TV audio very much in mind and despite its compact dimensions, the combination of DALI technologies employed endow it with performance comparable to significantly larger speakers. The OBERON ON-WALL C is designed specifically for direct wall mounting via rear panel keyhole slots. Portrait and landscape orientations are both accommodated.
The slim and discreet OBERON ON-WALL C comprises a compact, low profile, rear reflex loaded cabinet fitted with a 5.25” DALI wood fibre cone driver featuring SMC, and a DALI ultra lightweight 29mm soft dome tweeter.
The compactness of the OBERON ON-WALL C makes it easy to integrate into any room. To achieve a wide dispersion pattern in the listening area, the driver materials and geometry applied in the OBERON ON-WALL C have been carefully selected. The same principles have been applied in the design of the crossover.
As result, you will experience a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. This is important as you are rarely seated directly in front of your loudspeakers when listening to music. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion, as these will always be stronger in an on-axis response. This is also the reason why all DALI speakers are not designed to be toed-in.
Sound Hub Compact
The SOUND HUB COMPACT plays a central role in your active wireless Hi-Fi system. It transmits your audio sources to the wireless DALI eco system, which includes OBERON C, CALLISTO C and RUBICON C speakers. The SOUND HUB COMPACT was designed with compact dimensions and is slim enough to fit behind a wall-mounted TV.
Offering HDMI ARC, the SOUND HUB COMPACT is designed for TV audio - switching on and off in sync with the TV. Additionally it enables the use of the TV remote control to adjust volume and mute functions.
Inputs & connections
With five discrete audio inputs available, the SOUND HUB COMPACT can connect to almost any audio device - digital or analogue. It features no less than four ways to connect a TV. Including ample possibilities to connect music streaming or conventional audio devices.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT and OBERON C wireless connection is highly stable and introduces next to no packet loss. The robust nature of the wireless connection means that the Sound Hub Compact can be located as much as 10 m apart from the speakers without risk of connection failure or signal interruptions.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT Bluetooth input features AAC and aptX HD high performance codecs and enables smartphones, tablets, laptop or desktop computers, or any other Bluetooth audio source easily and quickly to play either locally stored or streamed music. Even Bluetooth equipped TVs.
