Product Description

Dali Oberon 3 stand-mount speaker brings the best of both worlds combining the large sound of a floor-standing speaker with the compact design of a stand-mount. The ultra-lightweight 29mm soft dome tweeter seamlessly integrates with the 7" wood fibre woofer for impressive highs, detailed and crisp mids and surprisingly coherent and well-timed bass.

At a Glance

All in all the Oberon 3 is a true showcase of Dali ideas, traditions and inventions - all wrapped in an elegant and modern design. Oberon 3 is easy to integrate into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the Oberon 3 have been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern in the listening area. The same principles have been applied in the design of the crossover.

Oberon Series

Dali Oberon is a breakthrough: it’s the first entry-level loudspeaker to incorporate Dali’s patented SMC technology, drastically reducing non-linear magnetic distortion – so you can hear your favourite music like you’ve never heard it before. The Oberon series presents a ‘speaker for every use’ line-up of models. With two compact stand-mounts, an on-wall, two floor-standing and a centre channel, the Oberon range has something for every need. Every speaker model is perfect for stereo use and is able to fill everything from small apartments to large living rooms with high-quality sound.

Low Loss Woofer

Oberon 3 features a 7" low-loss woofer - the same featured in the Oberon 7. The woofer has been optimised with a new wood fibre structured cone which is dedicated to reproducing the delicate midrange and bass frequency area - like every other driver made by Dali. It is constructed from a blend of fine grain paper pulp and reinforced with wood fibres, which creates a stiff, light-weight and well-behaving structure. In combination with a low-loss surround and spider suspension, this cone reproduces the micro details in the signal - unfiltered and with high accuracy.

Larger Cone Area

Dali chose a 7" driver, as its membrane has a 15% larger dimension than the common 6½ market standard. The larger cone area allows a lower voice coil excursion at the same sound pressure level compared to a 6½ woofer. It also allows a higher maximum sound pressure level, which leads to an effortless reproduction of the dynamics in the music. The membrane terminates in a rubber surround that is chosen for its soft and very flexible properties. This gives the membrane free movement with a very low dampening effect and leaves the magnet motor to control the membrane movement.

Ultra-Light Tweeter

The 29mm ultra-light soft dome tweeter is manufactured by Dali and has been developed specifically for the Oberon series - combining well-proven technologies from our existing Dali ranges with new features. The large size of the membrane lets the tweeter generate higher sound pressure with less excursion, keeping the voice coil motion to a precise minimum. The oversized 29mm membrane is constructed based on an ultra-light wave weave fabric and is additionally optimised for a larger bandwidth in its lower frequency area.

This ensures the optimal handover from the midrange woofer to the tweeter, creating a well-balanced, unforced and very coherent upper midrange. Compared to most soft dome tweeters in the market, the Dali dome material is less than half the weight (0.060 mg/mm2). The tweeter front plate near the dome has been designed with similar geometry as the Opticon and Rubicon tweeters to create the optimal working conditions for the soft dome. The aim is to combine an extended frequency response with wide dispersion and low colouration.

Patented SMC

With the use of SMC in the Oberon woofer, mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents is greatly reduced. This improvement in the magnet motor system results in a lowering of the third order distortion. This allows the Oberon 1 to present longer listening pleasure with a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing for the class. The magnet motor itself consists of a large ferrite magnet that surrounds a pole piece made with a unique combination of iron and SMC.

The iron ferrite forms the lower base of the pole cylinder, topped of with 10 mm SMC disk to crown the pole piece. This combination minimises the negative effects of the iron, while placing the SMC disk right in the main working area of the 4-layer voice coil. This placement ensures the maximum effect from the SMC on the voice coils environment, resulting in a greatly improved constant flux field.

Easy Integration

Dali makes it easy to integrate your loudspeakers into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the Oberon series has been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern in the listening area. The same principles have been applied in the design of the crossover. Thus, 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 loudspeaker when listening to music. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and 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.

Danish Cabinet

The cabinet construction of the Oberon 3 is composed of high-density CNC machined MDF board - dressed in carefully selected high-grade vinyl. The very rigid construction of the Oberon 3 cabinet is due to solid bracings across the inside of the cabinet for reinforcement. This improves the stiffness and practically eliminates resonance within the cabinet.

Dali optimised the timing by fitting the speakers with acoustic damping material internally along the sides, top and bottom. This creates a more direct contact between the woofer and bass port. The audible result is a more precise bass and increased ‘attack’ in the midrange. The bass ports are placed on the rear of the Oberon 1, optimising room integration by utilising the wall for improved bass performance.

Finish Options

Dali Oberon series is available in four finishes: Black Ash, White, Dark Walnut and Light Oak. Matched with a matte black or white front baffle. The rear-mounted bass port ensures optimum integration within the room, and the elegantly shaped aluminium base gives the two floor-standing models a lighter look. The Oberon series also introduces a brand new front grille design with rounded edges that add a lighter and contemporary visual look to the speaker series. 'Mountain Grey' is the standard grille supplied with the light finishes while Shadow Black is standard on the dark finishes.
