Lenbrook Americas has announced the new Oberon Grand Vokal Full Range Centre Speaker , the 2-way full range centre speaker for large rooms. This center channel features two 7-inch SMC-based woofers and an oversized, ultra-lightweight 29mm soft dome tweeter, the Grand Vokal blends seamlessly with any Oberon surround sound setup to deliver crystal-clear dialogue, sound effects and music at any volume. The formidable Oberon Grand Vokal was designed to harmonize with powerful Oberon 5, Oberon 7 and Oberon 9 floor standing speakers, and is perfectly timbre matched for Oberon 1 and Oberon 3 bookshelf speakers or the Oberon on-wall used for surround effects. The Oberon Grand Vokal is currently available and has an MSRP of $1,000 USD and $1,200 CAD.
“The centre channel speaker is the most important in a home cinema setup, this is where all the dialogue happens and the one that connects the sound to the screen. The Oberon Grand Vokal perfectly blends with the Oberon 7 and 9 creating one of the most coherent and integrated front stages available, it’s just seamless,” says Krestian Pedersen, DALI’s Head of Product Management.
The Oberon Grand Vokal delivers the classic Oberon sound on a huge scale with high power-handling and dynamics able to produce transparent sound at both low and high volume. The speaker can be placed above or below a television screen on a stand or a shelf. The speaker consists of an oversized 29mm membrane soft dome tweeter constructed from an ultra-light weight weave material that is half the weight of most models on the market. The extended frequency response is combined with super wide, panoramic dispersion. The patented SMC Disc in the woofer magnet’s iron pole-piece greatly reduces mechanical distortion for lifelike vocals and precision midrange reproduction.
