Product Description

Dali Katch One Soundbar is a sleek, comprehensive soundbar that upgrades the entire TV experience for viewers who demand sound that is just as sharp as the picture. Designed to enhance music from any source, Katch One can perform as your main audio system exhibiting a 40-year legacy in high-end audio production.

Katch One has ten built-in drivers impeccably matched to a powerful 4x 50W amplifier ensuring that movie soundtracks are dynamic with crisp and clear dialogue and elegantly balanced music. The soft dome tweeters preserve clean and detailed sound, four large passive drivers work alongside four active woofers to deliver tight, punchy and accurate bass for a flawless audio experience.

Design

The front fabric for the is chosen for its exceptional acoustic properties ensuring that the sound does not lose energy or details. On top of adding to the look and feel, the fabric helps ensure the Katch One fits with the decor of the rest of the room.

The three stylish mounting solutions ensures Katch One's aesthetics fit everybody. Featuring a chic, compact design, the wall-mounted leather strap completes the look and feel. This solution hides the cables running to the TV keeping everything tidy while the fabric front’s excellent acoustic properties ensure no loss of detail.

If space is tight the keyhole mount provides the perfect solution. You can also place the soundbar on a shelf or on top of furniture using the supplied real wood feet which match the overall look and serves to decouple from the placement surface by limiting unwanted vibrations.

Cabinet

Both the casing and the front baffle are moulded from a glass fibre reinforced ABS compound used to construct a platform that optimises airflow, widens the stereo image and guides the sound towards the listener. This forms the base for an extremely rigid structure preventing unwanted resonances in the cabinet structure.

The rear connection bay hides the plugs from view and grants easy access to the cable management system along the top back. You can run cables either up or down from the connection bay depending on placement.

Both the fixed grille and the front baffle have built-in air-flow guides to optimise spread of the audio signal. With woofers placed on the front and back of the unit, directing and optimising the flow of air is crucial. The rear woofers integrate with the wall to expand the bass performance while also using it to widen the stereo image. The front woofers are placed on the front baffle surrounded by a wave guide that helps regulate air flow for optimised dispersion.

Connections

With 5 different audio inputs, Katch One connects to any audio device and includes four ways to connect to your TV and ample music streaming devices. Auto signal detect on all inputs automatically powers on the speaker when your TV or audio source is.

The HDMI input (ARC) is an audio only input while the HDMI connection supports the use of the TV remote control. The optical input is designed for use with audio devices such as CD players and audio streamers. Bluetooth AAC and aptX allows easy music streaming from your phone, tablet or TV creating a wholly wireless solution. The stereo mini-jack input enables an analogue connection to your TV, phone, tablet or PC.

Connecting a subwoofer is simple and sends all deep bass directly to the SUB Out by the DSP. This leaves the amplifier more headroom to extend even further up the volume scale. The built-in USB port powers your tablet or Google Chromecast Audio (CCA) but does not allow for music playback. CCA connects to your home network adding a world of streaming services.

Drivers

The four large passive drivers work with the four active woofers to deliver remarkable bass performance for the perfect movie experience with capacity to deliver the audio pressure needed even in larger living rooms. Should the room demand even more bass performance, a subwoofer can extend the deep bass even further. Completing the package are the two 21mm ultra-light weight soft dome tweeters, truly bringing the high-end and upper mid-range to life. Together, the 6 active and 4 passive drivers produce a clean, detailed and coherent audio signal, rarely experienced in a Soundbar.

Tweeter

The 21mm ultra-light weight soft dome tweeter is incredibly compact but retains a large membrane area, ensuring it will reach deep down into the mid-range without any breaks or drops. The strong neodymium magnet delivers high power handling and a high sensitivity for detailed, accurate and fast high frequencies.

Woofer

By using a specially designed chassis, an inverted membrane and spider suspension, this shallow woofer has the same top excursion as a similar sized traditional woofer. The internal depth is turned into true low-frequency reproduction generating bass with as little help from the DSP as possible. The outward turned aluminium membrane cone is constructed with a soft fabric dust cap and allows the woofer superior air flow even at mid-range frequencies while lowering surface resonances, and retaining detail and clarity.

Performance

Katch One is driven by four 50 watts peak, closed loop Class-D amplifiers. Utilising DSP for the active crossover, the amplifiers are directly linked to the drivers for better performance. The low Signal to Noise ratio (100dB) of the amplifier module ensures that even the smallest detail in a quiet passage is passed on to the drivers, clear and undistorted.

Feeding the amplifier is a 200 watts peak switch mode power supply, with ample power delivery to handle everything from a concert to a powerful explosion. The dual transformer design keeps the standby power very low and headroom to handle the power requirements of the amplifiers is always available.

Sound Modes

Katch One offers two different sound modes: Wide and Focus. They are designed for the widest selection of movies, documentaries, news and music. The first setting offers a focused and very linear audio reproduction drawing out the often elusive mid-range frequency area.

The other offers a wide, impressive and very dynamic audio rendering. This puts the emphasis on delivering a room filling, surprisingly powerful experience. Both sound modes drastically improve the TV experience through great sound.
