This is one of the finest Full Range Loudspeakers ever made.
The Dali Megaline is a genuine line source loudspeaker which demonstrates very real advantages. This speaker is a statement product which stands nearly 2.5 m tall and uses no fewer than 15 drive units. A factor that distinguishes the Megaline from practically everything else on the market, is the use of an unusually tall ribbon tweeter that runs almost floor to ceiling.
The Megaline's tweeter is "nearly" a continuous ribbon, equivalent to 80 (!) 25mm domes.
The main difference between a line- and a point source is that a line creates a cylindrical rather than a spherical soundwave and this has important implications. First, the sound pressure of a cylindrical wave decays according to a square law, where as a spherical wave follows a cube law. The practical implication is that there will be noticeably less variation in loudness as one moves towards or away from the line source speakers, and therefore creates a more consistant volume level throughout the room. Because the line source delivers a cylindrical sound wave, there is virtually no output upwards or downwards, restricting ceiling and floor reflections. The total sound reaching the listener will have a smaller proportion of room reflected content compared to a point source, and this will sharpen the stereo image precision. The influence of room standing wave modes is likely to be reduced, but the most intriguing consequence is that the sound balance remains consistent and image stays at ear height, whether you are standing, sitting or lying on the floor. A final point is that because a line-source speaker necessarily has a much larger driver area than a point-source design, the speaker has massive reserves of power handling, loudness capability and headroom, and also couples well to the air volume in the listening room.
Furthermore, this speaker system offers an easy amplifier load of around 5 Ohms and therefore is also a candidate for valve amplifiers.
The Megalines play in the league of speakers costing above one million Rand.
We also have a second pair available, which is the Megaline Mk I. Both models are set up for demonstration. Please call us for further details.
