DALI Marks 40th Anniversary With New EPIKORE 11 Speaker

DALI's EPIKORE 11 follows the natural evolution of the acclaimed EPICON series while also inheriting several new technologies from the DALI KORE flagship speaker.

Following the launch of the flagship DALI KORE speakers, DALI continues its 40-year legacy of loudspeaker research and development with the new EPIKORE 11 at CEDIA Expo 2023. The EPIKORE 11 follows the natural evolution of the acclaimed EPICON series while also inheriting several new technologies from the DALI KORE flagship speaker. The EPIKORE 11 combines ultimate audio realism with luxurious craftmanship to create a truly exceptional musical experience. The DALI EPIKORE 11 is available in three colors (High Gloss Black, High Gloss Maroon and High Gloss Walnut) and is available now.

Designed and built in-house, the DALI EPIKORE 11 exude the minimalism, elegance, and style of classic Danish furniture design. With Adjustable Spike Feet Outriggers, ensuring solid, stable contact with the floor, the new DALI EPIKORE 11 loudspeakers combine functionality and design to look and sound stunning.

The newly developed 61/2-inch EPIKORE Midrange Driver delivers an outstanding performance. Featuring the complex embossed geometric structure of the paper and wood fiber diaphragm used in the DALI KORE, which lowers distortion without adding additional weight as well as helping to control the diaphragm modes. The titanium voice-coil, and DALI’s patented SMC Gen-2 magnet system lowers mechanical loss and distortion even further, allowing for an outstanding sonic performance.

First introduced in the DALI KORE, the SMC KORE Crossover Inductors are also used for the EPIKORE 11, which feature the world’s first SMC Gen-2 inductor cores. When compared with standard air-core inductors, this technology allows lower DC resistance, a shorter signal path and less vulnerability to crosstalk between the inductors, especially at high inductances. These SMC KORE Crossover Inductors, together with hand-picked, high-end capacitors and resistors, ensure the EPIKORE 11’s World-class Crossovers are optimized exclusively for the speaker. The properties of SMC Gen-2 material also results in around 12dB less current distortion than equivalent iron-powder core inductors.

Featuring exceptionally large and powerful magnet systems based on DALI’s SMC Gen-2 material, the four 8-inch Woofers used in the EPIKORE 11 fill any room with a huge, extensive, and precise low frequency reproduction. From the lowest, deepest bass frequencies through to the seamless overlap to the midrange driver, the EPIKORE 11 woofers reproduce the finest musical details and dynamics, with very low loss of information.

The EPIKORE 11 features DALI’s signature Paper and Wood Fiber Cone Technology, which serves to reduce weight and adds stiffness, helping promote non-resonant break-up characteristics. With wood fiber cone technology, the EPIKORE 11 produces the finest musical detail and dynamics.

Developed originally for the DALI KORE, the EVO-K Hybrid Tweeter combines a large, in-house developed 35mm soft dome tweeter and an improved version of DALI’s ultra-thin, high performance ribbon tweeter element.
