Dali Equi - what is it and why do I need it?
Equi is a new wireless system from Dali that encorporates all their Active products into one big Wireless Home Cinema family. The biggest hurdle for people wanting to do Home Cinema is the vast amounts of speaker cables you need. It's easy to accomodate when you are doing a new build or refurb, but if you just want to experience true Home Cinema in your living room it has alwyas meant a large AV receiver and passive speakers all cabbled back to a central point. Until now that is!
Dali's active Oberon C and Rubicon C systems centre around the Soundhub, a Central box at the heart of the system has multiple connections for TV and other source components which talks wirelessly to the Active speakers. Not much difference in size to a regular set-top box, it can house plug in modules to offer BluOS Hi Res Streaming and now, a fully capable HDMI ARC/eARC board allowing you to configure speakers from 2.1 all the way through to 7.1 surround sound, without individual connections to each speaker.
There is also an option for a wireless subwoofer to sit alongside any speaker configuration up to 7 channels.
Equi systems are the perfect substitute to a large AV Amplifier and cables without any compromise on sound quality and ultimately, a true Home Cinema experience.
