For anyone aspiring to get into good quality sound, but without the budget for a full blown audio system or much less the desire for such, and who want to simply have really good sound quality from their computer based music system that is far beyond your typical computer speakers…..keep reading about the Dali Kubik Free!
The Dali Kubik Free is not your normal desktop speaker, it comes from a company with a huge heritage in fine loudspeakers and it is that heritage that allows Dali to deliver a desktop speaker that outshines anything you will get from your local computer shop. The Dali Kubik Free has many ways to connect your music, Bluetooth, Optical and Coaxial S/PDIF, and of course USB. So it is somewhat unfair to call these speakers simply computer speakers, they are a speaker for many uses.
Amplification is somewhat surprising; 100 watts of Class D amplifier power across four channels (4 x 25 watts), meaning two amplifiers for each speaker, driving either the woofer or the tweeter. All this power adds up to deliver a maximum SPL of 103db, pretty impressive. The enclosures are made of extruded aluminium with a cloth wrap around grille, available in a variety of colours.
The driver array consists of a 25mm soft dome tweeter and a 133mm bass/mid driver made of wood fibre. Doesn’t sound like much, but these little speakers can deliver a fairly impressive 48-22kHz of sound. The treble response is sweet and the bass authentic and not ‘fake’ like most desktop speakers. This is a true Dali Hi-Fi speaker in every sense, make no mistake. Dynamics are excellent too. This is not a system to get caught up in which DAC is being used or anything like that, this is simply a very fun system to listen to.
