LEKTOR LCR is developed to suit a wide variety of needs, ranging from compact audio (stereo or 2.1) setups over the very common flat screen accompaniment (on wall) to more elaborate home cinema installations. The speaker is intended for on-wall mounting, featuring integrated wall brackets for either horizontal or vertical positioning. In home cinema setups the speaker can be used for Left, Center and Right – thereof the name LEKTOR LCR. Besides on-wall mounting, LEKTOR LCR can also be lying flat on e.g. a TV-table or a shelf when used as a center channel. The LEKTOR speakers are strong new contenders in the very challenging “mid-price” segment. All key components in the LEKTOR speakers are newly developed, implementing advanced technologies and materials originally introduced in the more costly and multi award winning IKON® Series to deliver class leading sonic performance. In keeping with DALI® tradition and philosophy, the development of the drivers for LEKTOR LCR has been the critical milestone to acheive an extraordinary final result. The two 5” woofers incorporate wood fiber cones, low-loss suspensions and powerful magnet systems – all prerequisites for clear, accurate, undistorted sound. The soft dome tweeter is based on the same technology platform developed for the IKON® Series: 28 mm (1.1”) lightweight soft domes, powerful neodymium magnet system and a geometrical design optimized for wide dispersion. As a result, the tweeter system is able to render the subtlest musical details with great precision. Managing director Lars Worre of DALI® comments: "With the development of LEKTOR LCR we have made an on-wall speaker with very high performance; great dynamic capabilities due to the two wall mounted 5” woofers, great soundstage and details due to the wood fiber cones and the oversized neodymium tweeter. LEKTOR LCR has a high power handling and is therefore a great match with many larger speakers as well as powerful subwoofers.” Lars Worre continues, “The sound from LEKTOR LCR is voice matched to the other speakers in the LEKTOR series and just like the rest of the LEKTOR family, it is immediately apparent that the speaker has a resemblance to our more expensive speakers lines.” LEKTOR® LCR is shipping now at M.S.R.P. €299,-.
