DALI- KUBIK ONE - BLUETOOTH SPEAKER/ SOUNDBAR/ HOME CINEMA SPEAKER RED
DALI KUBIK series
The DALI KUBIK series is a range of wireless speakers that combine DALI’s outstanding loudspeaker heritage with state-of-the-art digital amplification. Add a huge variety of inputs — including Bluetooth for wireless streaming — and the result is a one-box sound system that can fill a room with beautifully reproduced music from just about any source.
Advanced Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC), which eliminates variation of flux strength in the magnet gap. It reduces distortion to a minimum compared to conventional drivers.
WOOD FIBRE CONES
Low-loss drivers made of low-mass paper cones with wood fibre reinforcement. The embedded wood fiber cones gives the surface an uneven stucture, which dramatically minimizes the resonance of the surface. This creates the best possible reproduction of every detail in the audio signal.
Optimized for the EPICON series. Featuring an extremely smooth and wide horizontal dispersion.
Constructed from 6 individual layers of MDF glued together to form a rigid construction that reduces cabinet resonances. The rounded shape practically eliminated standing waves.
The DALI KUBIK ONE is an audiophile all-in-one sound system designed with a passion for genuine hi-fi reproduction.
The DALI KUBIK ONE is a flexible stereo sound system that offers a broad range of connectors such as Bluetooth, USB, Analogue input and no less than two Optical inputs offering the option of connecting to both a TV and an audio player. The variety of connectors, ensure that any device will connect to the KUBIK ONE at the best possible quality. To improve ease of use even more, the KUBIK ONE features wake-up on signal and IR learning. The wake-up on signal turns on the KUBIK ONE when any signal is detected on any input, including Bluetooth. The clever IR learning enables the use of an existing remote control to navigate the KUBIK ONE.

A single piece of extruded aluminium forms the basis of the main housing. The use of aluminium makes it possible to make the cabinet very compact, whilst still leaving plenty of room on the inside to render even the lowest bass frequencies. By using aluminium it allows the cabinet walls to be thinner than if constructed using traditional materials. This can be done without losing the rigid structure that is all important to suppress unwanted resonances. At the same time, the aluminium base gives the KUBIK ONE its modern and simple visual design features
The back of the KUBIK ONE is constructed of a composite material and is where the main connectors are conveniently positioned. By blending different materials like aluminium and composites, unwanted effects like resonances are further eliminated. The connection bay has a built-in cable management system that secures the connected cables to the KUBIK ONE and allows them to travel behind the unit, hiding them from view. If placed under a TV, all cables can be fed behind the KUBIK ONE, leading to a clean and organised look.
A dedicated focus on bringing the midrange alive and always conveying a true rendition of voices and instruments in the upper frequency range, makes building a high quality tweeter an important part of the DALI sonic definition. KUBIK ONE’s soft dome tweeter is built around a powerful ferrite magnet and very narrow magnet gap, a technique optimised and enhanced by DALI over many years. This type of magnet enables the KUBIK ONE to handle more power and helps disperse the heat generated around the fast moving voice coil quicker, thereby reducing power compression. This in turn allows the tweeter to reproduce high frequencies with improved accuracy, giving the KUBIK ONE an impressively detailed sound.
The KUBIK tweeter is constructed on the basis of an ultra light-weight weave fabric, and when compared to most soft dome tweeters available, the DALI dome material is less than half the weight of most competitors’. The positioning of the tweeter front plate near the dome has been chosen to create the optimal working conditions for the soft dome. The aim is to combine an extended frequency response with wide dispersion and low colouration, and improve the integration of both the tweeter and the mid/bass driver.
Using only drivers designed in-house, DALI develops each driver specifically for the individual loudspeaker. Designed to meet the demands of DALI’s sound philosophies, every material used in the woofer is carefully selected. This is an important part of building a high quality audio product. The chassis used in the KUBIK ONE woofer is based on a glass reinforced polymer. Using this material DALI was able to create a lightweight but extremely strong chassis for the 5” woofer. The non-magnetic chassis increases the flux density in the magnet gap by 10%, adding more power and WOOFER control to the magnet motor system. The cone is made from a blend of wood fibre and paper pulp to give it a stiff, lightweight but well-behaving structure, and is connected to the chassis using a DALI low-loss surround. The very agile rubber surround gives the cone undamped movement, and helps retain the fine details in the audio signal even at low volumes. Driving the wood fibre cone is a strong magnet motor system based around a four layer voice coil. The decision to use a four layer voice coil is an important part of delivering the required sound pressure. Generating 17% more force than a two layer system, and 27% less electrical Q, it gives a significant improvement in control of the entire moving part of the system. To keep the voice coil light, a copper clad aluminium wire was used for the four layers. Using traditional copper wire would make the voice coil heavy, harder to control and therefore a tougher drive for the amplifier. A heavy voice coil can also cause massive loss of detail in sound reproduction. The combination of all of these low-loss technologies results in a serious improvement in bass control, reproduction of micro details, and greater transparency.
Bringing high quality audio to all corners of the room is one of the main features of DALI Wide Dispersion drivers. By optimising the audio reproduction for off-axis dispersion, the majority of the reproduced signal will be of the highest possible quality. It increases the sweet spot in the listening area, and also means that the signal reflected off the walls will be of the same high quality as the signal reaching your ears directly. The drivers in KUBIK ONE are likewise designed for Wide Dispersion. This gives you the experience of a well integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle, and as you are rarely placed directly in front of the loudspeaker when listening to music, this is very important. It helps the KUBIK ONE build a large, coherent and lifelike soundstage and enables the KUBIK ONE to fill even larger rooms with well defined and detailed audio. When wall-mounted or positioned close against a wall, the KUBIK ONE will deliver room filling and well timed bass, and will use the surrounding wall area to maximise the output of all frequencies.
Selecting an amplifier and power supply for a system like the KUBIK ONE is no simple process. Measuring and analysing on technical specifications will only get you so far. In the end it all comes down to listening. KUBIK ONE’s amplifier is able not only to deliver a powerful and well controlled signal to all the drivers, but also to give the drivers the optimum working conditions. KUBIK ONE’s 100 Watt Class D amplifier is a true active solution, offering a fully digital crossover, direct handling of digital sources and a high quality AD converter. The four channel stereo amplifier (4 x 25 Watts) controls the audio signal to the woofer and the tweeter module individually. This is a major reason behind the high quality performance of the KUBIK ONE system since it makes it possible to control and optimize the audio stream perfectly for the drivers used. Having that level of control lets the acoustic engineers transform every bit of information into accurate motion in the drivers. A Switch Mode Power Supply offers consistent output, compact size and a low heat emission. By integrating the SMPS into the KUBIK ONE, the power supply can be tightly optimised for the amplifier and the signal path between power supply and amplifier is shortened to almost zero elimination reactance. The integration also eliminates the need for a clumsy external power adaptor. At the same time the SMPS is less dependent on a steady mains supply compared to a traditional power supply, allowing the KUBIK ONE system to continue to work at maximum efficiency, even in areas with a fluctuating mains supply. With a maximum power output of 120 Watts, the power supply will never become the bottleneck, and will even at peak levels be able to deliver the needed power to the amplifier. Knowing that the KUBIK ONE will be used in anything from small TV rooms to large kitchen areas, DALI decided to add a Bass Level function. This function is controlled from a switch on the back of the unit and offers you three settings. The Neutral setting gives you an authentic bass reproduction. Bass Enhance offers a slight boost in the lower mid-range and bass area, and is perfect for larger rooms or an enhanced TV experience. Bass Boost lifts the same area as Bass Enhance, but increases the levels. This setting is meant for large rooms or rooms that tend to absorb a lot of bass. Using Bass Level offers the possibility to use the KUBIK ONE in almost any environment, even without adding a subwoofer.
KUBIK ONE offers a wide range of possible connections. This makes the very flexible KUBIK ONE easy to use with any of your existing audio sources, and quick to connect to your phone or tablet. A simple button push is all that is needed to change input source, and if the KUBIK ONE is off or in auto mode, it will automatically detect the source being activated and turn itself on, and begin playing the audio from that source. This even works for Bluetooth. Just reactivate the pairing from your phone or tablet, and the KUBIK ONE will turn on, connect to the phone, tablet or PC and start playing. Bluetooth Streaming music can come from a variety of sources, but with mobile devices proving to be extremely popular, the need for a wireless connection is necessary. By adding Bluetooth ver. 3.0 to the KUBIK ONE, DALI stays true to the goal of making an active speaker for everybody, and CONNECTIONS by offering the Apt-X protocol on top, even the most demanding of listeners get the best possible transfer of audio. Use KUBIK ONE and Bluetooth with your phone, tablet or PC/Mac. Optical (TOSLink) & IR Learning The KUBIK ONE offers two optical inputs, one for TV use and one for other audio sources. Using an optical output from a TV leaves you with a fixed volume problem, rendering the TV remote unusable to control the volume of the external speakers. Via an easy to use IR learning system built into the KUBIK ONE, almost any remote control can be used to navigate every function on the KUBIK ONE. Control the volume, mute, power and source select in three easy steps. This sets the KUBIK ONE apart for all other external TV speakers systems and makes it the perfect audio centre piece in the living room.
