Product Description

Dali Katch wireless portable speaker has two audio profiles for best results in all scenarios; One is optimised for a linear response and neutral sound which is perfect for most listening situations, while the other adds warmth and ensures it performs exceedingly well in larger rooms or when the music needs just that little extra.

Katch is the ultimate embodiment of Dali’s advanced digital technology and unique design knowledge, resulting in a loudspeaker that delivers incredibly rich sound from an incredibly compact chassis.

Tweeter

Based upon a very strong neodymium magnet, the 21mm light weight soft dome is extremely compact while retaining a large membrane area. The compact structure helps keep the inner cabinet volume as large as possible while the large surface area ensures it reaches deep into the midrange without any break up or drops offs for seamless integration with the woofer. The neodymium magnet delivers high power handling and sensitivity for detailed, accurate and fast high frequencies.

Woofer

Using a specially designed chassis, inverted membrane and spider suspension, Dali managed to get the same maximum excursion as a similar sized traditional woofer, from this shallow cabinet. Every extra millimetre gained internally is turned into true low frequency reproduction to generate bass with minimal help from the DSP.

Despite the limited baffle surface area, the woofer membrane is a relatively large 3.5”. The outward turned cone is made from an aluminium membrane with a soft fabric dust cap. This lets the woofer move as much air a possible even at mid-range frequencies and the aluminium/fabric combination lowers surface resonances to retain detail and clarity.

Connections

Connect normally or use NFC for a quick effortless Bluetooth connection. The built-in Bluetooth 4.0 receiver accepts aptX connections from compatible devices. Alternatively, Dali Katch has an auto-sensing stereo minijack input for easy connection to non-Bluetooth devices.

Pressing the Bluetooth button with the minijack connected lets you toggle between the inputs. There is also a USB charge connector and power connector. The USB port will charge your smartphone or music device while on the go but can also drive a Chromecast Audio dongle for easy home network integration.

Cabinet

To reproduce a realistic musical experience, Dali drew on what they had learnt from their Fazon series opting for an extruded aluminium body together with front and rear baffles made from an ABS+PC compound.

This acheived a cabinet with a much thinner structure to maximise the precious internal volume without losing the required rigidity. Matching the aluminium cabinet with a composite front and rear baffle ensures removal any potential internal resonance so the cabinet does not add unwanted noise to the sound generated by the drivers.

The baffles are secured by screws and airtight EVA gasket for a tight and vibration free connection to the main cabinet. Available in a choice of striking colours, Dali Katch blends elegantly into almost any environment. The leather carry strap makes it easy and comfortable to bring along and the durable design makes it safe to do so.

Battery

The internal Li-Ion battery has a total capacity of 2600 mAh, letting the Dali Katch play at normal volume for as long as 24 hours. The battery is exchangeable with all components made by a well-known manufacturer for the best possible stamina. Using the supplied charger, the Katch speaker can be fully charged in 90 minutes.

Press Reviews

  • 'Best portable wireless speaker £250+' (What Hi-Fi Awards 2017)

  • 'Best portable wireless speaker £200+... Dali Katch seemingly always has room to go further, defying its size with colossal thumps... the Dali is far from overawed by the track’s demanding instrumentation; there’s plenty of detail picked out from sawing guitars and multi-tracked strings, digging deep into the soil of wails and drones that tail off each phrase.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)

  • 'There are further adventures in detail and dynamics with the record’s second track, Lambs’ Breath... Often we might consider it too harsh a task for a portable wireless speaker but this Dali Katch speaker is fantastically aware of the subtleties of each sustain, showing it has the versatility to go big on the first track, and also analyse the slowly moving tides of this one.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)

  • 'Dali has improved on pretty much every aspect of last year’s standard... the Katch has raised the bar so significantly in the same way KEF did 12 months ago... It isn’t cheap, but this is definitely a case of getting what you pay for.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)

  • 'For those who value sonic organisation above everything else... Dali has designed a speaker with no obvious faults at this price. The Katch both entertained and engaged us, raising the bar for this sector of the market.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine November 2016)

    Bought this as a birthday treat. Wow, it's by far the best portable speaker I've heard. Sound is incredible, looks amazing too. So much fun. The Sonos has been relegated to the spare room.
