The Dali Zensor 3 are a larger version of the supremely popular Dali Zensor 1 speakers - featuring a larger 7" bass/mid driver and the same 25mm tweeter employed in the Zensor 1. The Zensor 3's benefit from increased authority and bass performance thanks to their larger driver, as well as increased scale and soundstage.
Dali have designed the cabinet so that it is large enough to deliver a sufficient, controlled and deep bass and yet is small enough to be placed on a shelf or floor stand. The woofer cones are made from a blend of fine grained paper pulp reinforced with wood fibres. This mix makes the cones stiff and light which ensures that every micro detail in the signal is reproduced unfiltered.
The 7” woofer increases the surface area by 15% compared to a 6½” woofer and this helps the Zensor 3 to deliver the same sound pressure with much less cone excursion, leading to an effortless reproduction of the dynamics in the music. With a 4 layer voice coil magnet motor system the Zensor 3 produces an impressive 17% more B/L compared with speakers using the common 2 layer voice coil. A copper clad aluminum wire ensures optimal reproduction in the mid range, and the power of the magnet motor keep the bass controlled and precise.
The soft dome tweeter module has over and over again proved its ability to deliver a rich and detailed sound, and the module used in the Zensor 3 is no exception - delivering an extended frequency response with wide dispersion and low coloration.

- Out of the box, the Zensor 3s don’t sound as tightly controlled as they should be, and the bass gets a little messy. Give them a good long run-in – a weekend will do – and you’re in for a treat. The first thing that strikes you is the scale. The soundstage is wide open, and there’s ample headroom too. For those who like their speakers toed-in: don’t...the Zensor 3s prefer to fire straight ahead, rather than inwards. Sound is nicely dispersed, and the presentation is airy. It’s a balanced sound. There’s a crisp top-end and a sweet midrange. The bass response is stunning for the size of the cabinets: there’s plenty of deep, tight bass that’s rich without ever getting heavy. It’s nearly impossible not to be moved by the Zensor 3s’ take on the Inception soundtrack: the power on hand, combined with that scale, is deeply impressive. It’s an easy listen too, and never tiring. The Dali Zensor 3s are a great success. More than that, they’re a treat. They don’t put a foot wrong, and they’ll occupy you for hours. If you’re after an affordable upgrade, these represent top value for money' (What Hi-Fi? Magazine)
