DALI’S First Sound Bar
The new DALI KATCH ONE Soundbar stretches the appearance of their portable Katch wireless speaker into a sound bar with ten built-in drivers and a 200 watt amplifier system. That should make it powerful enough to fill larger rooms with TV and music audio, but its unique leather strap mounting solution is turning heads.
The DALI designed drivers and amplifier adhere strictly to the company’s renowned sound design principles, reproducing the audio just as the creator intended, whether it be watching the evening news, an action movie or listening to music. To accommodate this even further, the KATCH ONE offers the option of two sound modes, making it possible to get the best out of any performance. The settings are designed to let the KATCH ONE perform with the widest selection of movies, documentaries, news and music. “Focus” offers a focused and very linear audio reproduction that is well suited for news and documentaries. “Wide” setting offers a wide, impressive and very dynamic powerful audio rendering best used for movies and concerts. Both sound modes deliver perfectly on the main goals of a high-performance soundbar – improving the TV experience through great sound.
Completing the package are the two 21 mm ultra-lightweight, soft dome tweeters, bringing the high-end and upper mid-range to life. Together, the 6 active and 4 passive drivers deliver a clean, detailed and coherent audio soundstage, rarely experienced in a soundbar. Should the room or application demand even more bass performance, a subwoofer can easily be added via the LFE output, extending the deep bass even further.
For ease of hookup, DALI KATCH ONE offers a wide selection of inputs, ranging from HDMI, 2 x Optical, Analog and also includes Bluetooth (AAC and aptX) enabling the KATCH ONE to connect to any TV or audio system. The user can use the included remote handset to control every aspect of the KATCH ONE, or they can connect to their TV via HDMI (CEC) and simply use the TV remote to regulate the volume of the KATCH ONE.
With several smart and elegant solutions for wall mounting or tabletop placement siting, the KATCH ONE will integrate perfectly with virtually any TV setup and is flexible and easy to install. The leather strap wall mount with built-in cable management completes the unique look of the KATCH ONE. The rear wall mount offers a sleek and elegant mounting solution, and where space is limited. If wall mounting is not practical the included feet make it possible to stand the KATCH ONE on a shelf or furniture top, etc.
