As part of DALI’s wireless CALLISTO eco system, the stand mount Dali Callisto 2 C represents the virtues of traditional Hi-Fi merged with the convenience of wireless audio. Designed to deliver on DALI’s promise of producing the most natural and faithful reproduction possible. The Dali Callisto 2 C is perfect for smaller spaces or rooms where the speakers need to remain discreet, but where power and presence are still paramount. The combination of a 6½-inch low-loss wood fibre woofer, a hybrid tweeter module and the perfectly balanced internal cabinet volume results in a supremely accurate and powerful audio experience.
The Dali Callisto 2 C connects wirelessly to the DALI Sound Hub (available separately) through an extremely stable digital connection. With latency below 25 ms, sync between video and audio from a movie or TV source is obtained well within conventionally acceptable limits. Everything from the drivers to the amplifier is developed in-house, which is why DALI can optimise every single component to match each other perfectly. This enables us to design the woofers to be more linear than would be possible in a similar traditional passive speaker system.
- Touch sensitive volume – The touch sensitive panel atop the CALLISTO speaker cabinet lets you control the volume at the touch of your finger tip. The included Bluetooth remote & the Sound Hub’s volume knob gets the job done just as easily. Regardless of your approach, the actual volume change is done at the very end of the signal chain.
- Wood fibre cones – The low-mass CALLISTO wood fibre cones are optimised to work in perfect balance with the built-in amplifier. This enables the woofers to be more linear than in a similar passive speaker system. This is possible, as we have total control of the entire audio chain.
- SMC technology – The Dali Callisto 2 C woofer benefit from the use of (SMC) Soft Magnetic Compound in the pole piece. When used in a speaker magnet motor system, it results in a significant reduction of distortion from mechanical loss. SMC’s unique ability to deliver a high magnetic conductivity and a very low electrical conductivity delivers all the wanted qualities of a really good speaker magnet without the traditional downsides.
- DALI M-600 speaker stands – Offering style and stability these elegant stands will perfectly complement the CALLISTO 2 C stand mount speakers, available to purchase separately.
Like its larger sibling, the CALLISTO 2 C features DALI’s innovative hybrid tweeter module, which was optimised specifically for the CALLISTO series. Combining a dome and ribbon tweeter for astonishing rendering of high frequencies, and a dispersion of high frequency audio that outperforms all other tweeter technologies.
The unique 6½” CALLISTO 2 C woofer takes low loss and linearity to a whole new level. By controlling the entire signal path from source to driver, the DALI acoustics team were able to elevate audio performance beyond conventional speakers.
Class D Amplifier
The CALLISTO 2 C Class D amplifier is based on patented state-of-the-art technology with a global feedback and self-oscillating design chosen for its very musical properties. Being able to deliver 250 Watts for up to 5 seconds, there is plenty of power to ensure more than enough sound pressure even in complex musical passages or massive explosions in movies.
Precision Cut Cabinets
The CALLISTO 2 C cabinet is constructed from 25mm solid MDF, which employ a very rigid construction with robust bracings across the inside of the cabinet for extra reinforcement. This contributes to a stiffness and density that practically eliminates resonance within the cabinet. At the same time great care is taken not to reduce the internal volume of the cabinet unnecessarily.
