Description

The Dali Sound Hub is the brains behind your Oberon C speaker systems, streaming Hi-Res audio to your speakers and automatically switching between multiple sources. The Sound Hub brings true no-compromise convenience to music and movie lovers who demand more.

 

PRODUCT DETAILS

The Dali Sound Hub features an extended range of digital and analogue inputs combined with an auto source sensing system. The Sound Hub automatically activates the right input the moment you start playing music or turn on your TV – so you can just sit back and enjoy exquisite audio.

The front-facing volume knob embeds an LED display, which combines Hi-Fi tradition with convenience. The LED display shows the current audio source as well as the volume level, and you can even adjust the light intensity of the display. This is supported by a light display on top of the Sound Hub, which indicates the location of the speakers in the pairing process.

Dali have made the setup simple, so you only have to worry about adjusting the volume, which can be done via a multitude of options. E.g. on the Sound Hub, by using the included Bluetooth remote, via your smart device (depends on the brand) or directly via the touch panels built atop of the CALLISTO C range.

MQA Certified

The Dali Oberon C systems are MQA Certified. By adding the DALI BluOS NPM-1 module to your Sound Hub, you can now take advantage of the ever-growing catalogue of studio master recordings that have been encoded into MQA and streamed on services like Tidal.

 

WIRELESS AUDIO TRANSFER

The wireless connection between the Sound Hub and the speakers is an extremely stable digital connection, made on either the 2.4 GHz or the 5.8 GHz band depending on location and quality of the connection. The proprietary 30 bit protocol transfers an uncompressed I2S audio signal in 24 bit 96 kHz, utilising the remaining bits to control volume, speaker ID and other control data. Because it works on a less trafficked band, and the protocol is specially designed for transporting an audio signal, the connection is highly stable introducing next to no packet loss.

The protocol uses forward error correction to remove the result of packet loss should they occur. The high bandwidth low latency protocol functions as a point to multipoint connection. This allows for multiple speakers to connect to the same stereo signal. With latency below 25 ms, sync between video and audio from a movie or TV source is obtained well within conventionally acceptable limits.

 

EXPANSION PORTS

One of the most innovative features of the DALI Sound Hub is actually hidden away from view. The two modular expansion ports on the back panel open up the hub to a world of possibilities. Via the DALI designed open standard connector, any type of audio module can integrate 100% with the Sound Hub system.

This enables a total seamless addition of extra hub functions - allowing for streaming, multi-room or even multi-channel expansions, but also future proofing the Sound Hub. This includes any connected speakers by separating the quickly evolving music delivery technologies from the more robust and time durable speaker technology.

The BluOS NPM-1 expansion module integrates Bluesound’s incredible BluOS hi-res multi-room platform. BluOS is devised by audiophiles for audiophiles to deliver the best digital sound quality imaginable throughout your house. And because Bluesound is compatible with speakers from a variety of audiophile manufacturers, it delivers flexibility, convenience and choice as well as unparalleled quality. Which makes it a natural extension to the OBERON C wireless family.
