The Dali KUBIK FREE is a wireless active speaker (supplied on its own with a "Dali KUBIK XTRA" available to create a stereo system) is built with Dali speaker DNA and a 100W amplifier that sounds fantastic, with a range of connections including Bluetooth and choice of black, red or white finishes.
The essence of these speakers is ease of use and connectivity. This elegantly designed active speaker enables you to enjoy music from a wide variety of sources and can be connected via Bluetooth, USB, Optical or Analog inputs.
Bluetooth and Optical input is just two of the seven possible connection types that the KUBIK system offers. The broad range of connectors ensure that any device will connect to the KUBIK system at the best possible quality. To improve ease of use even more, the KUBIK system offers IR learning that enables the use of an existing remote control to navigate the KUBIK system.
By working with many of DALI’s well-known speaker technologies like the soft dome tweeter, wood fibre cones, low-loss rubber surrounds and a glass reinforced polymer basket, the KUBIK system is clearly a true DALI speaker at its core. Adding a 4 channel stereo Class D amplifier into the mix only underlines the development team’s dedication to making the KUBIK system a real Hi-Fi speaker.
The KUBIK system consists of two elements the KUBIK FREE and the KUBIK XTRA. The two components can be setup in three different ways. Using the KUBIK FREE alone as a standalone system, using the KUBIK FREE and the KUBIK XTRA together in a stereo system or using the KUBIK FREE and KUBIK XTRA together in a two room standalone system.
The main housing is based on one piece of extruded aluminium. This serves to strengthen the entire product giving it a solid feel and ensures that all components can be fitted tightly onto the structure eliminating vibrations. The back plate also acts as heat transfer for the amplifier and power supply. The top of the KUBIK is crafted from the same aluminium and reveals the solid build of the KUBIK FREE.
The 100 Watts Class D amplifier is a true active solution offering a fully digital crossover, direct handling of digital sources, and a high quality AD converter. The four channel stereo amplifier (4 x 25 Watts) controls the audio signal to the woofer and the tweeter module individually.
This is a major part of the high quality performance of the KUBIK system since it makes it possible to control and optimize the audio stream perfectly for the drivers used in the KUBIK system. Having that level of control lets the acoustic engineers transform every bit of information into driver movement. This truly is a combination where two plus two equals 5.
This is a single active speaker. It does sound fantastic on its own; however, if you want a stereo pair, order this and an additional Dali Kubik Xtra passive speaker
'A clever system that offers superlative connectivity and flexibility...a thoroughly modern multimedia loudspeaker package...the system goes loud and doesn’t show any sign of break up at high volumes...they sound clean, refined and punchy, and are a fine listen considering their price and obvious flexibility.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine)
'With its new Kubik Free series of miniature two-way loudspeakers, Dali is putting the fun back into functionality. The self-powered Kubik Free loudspeaker connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth music streaming device, its onboard amplifiers delivering a deliciously sweet sound from Dali’s proprietary wood-fibre bass/mid driver and soft-dome tweeter. Of course, the Kubik Free also includes wired USB and optical inputs – perfect for partnering with your TV – and stereo connections for all legacy audio devices.' (EISA Awards)
'A multi-pin connection allows your Kubik Free to power a second, passive version of the speaker called the Kubik Free Xtra while a subwoofer output is included to service a full 2.1 channel audio system. Finally, with a choice of wrap-around grille colours, the Kubik will blend seamlessly into any modern living space.' (EISA Awards)
