DESCRIPTION

As TVs get larger, the space for quality audio systems gets even smaller. With slim profiles in vogue, audio performance is the first to suffer. For viewers that demand their TV sound to be just as sharp as the picture, DALI has created the KATCH ONE. A stylish, complete one-stop soundbar that upgrades the whole TV experience by adding that missing audio excellence.

Designed to enhance TV audio but engineered to improve music from any source, the DALI KATCH ONE has the power to perform as your main audio system. The faultless audio performance is testament to DALI's nearly four decade long experience in high-end Hi-Fi production, focusing on creating the most natural-sounding speakers on the market, recreating music just as the artist intended.

Featuring a chic, compact design, the DALI KATCH ONE features no fewer than 10 built-in drivers, perfectly matched with a powerful 4x 50W amplifier. This ensures that movie soundtracks are always sweepingly dynamic, that dialogue is always crisp and clear, and music is beautifully balanced and exactly as the creator intended. 

With soft dome tweeters keeping sound clean and detailed, four large passive drivers work alongside four active woofers to deliver bass that's tight, punchy and precise, all combining to providing the perfect audio experience.

Elegant and easy to install, the DALI KATCH ONE comes with all the  inputs you could ever need, including HDMI, 2x Optical, Analogue, not to mention Bluetooth (AAC and aptX).

DESIGN

The front fabric for the KATCH ONE is picked for its very good acoustical properties, ensuring that the sound slips through without losing energy or details. Besides adding to the look and feel of the KATCH ONE, the fabric also helps the KATCH ONE fit in with the rest of the room. 

An important part of the visual design is the three stylish mounting solutions that ensures the KATCH ONE has a look for everybody. 

Featuring a chic, compact design, the wall-mounted leather strap truly completes the look and feel of the KATCH ONE. This solution elegantly hides the cables running from the TV to the KATCH ONE, keeping everything tidy, while the fabric front’s excellent acoustic properties ensure no audio detail is lost. 

If space is tight the keyhole mount on the rear of the KATCH ONE is the perfect solution. 

Placing the KATCH ONE on a shelf or on top of furniture is also possible with the use of the supplied real wood feet. These feet match the overall look and feel of the KATCH ONE, and serve to decouple the KATCH ONE from the placement surface, thereby limiting unwanted vibrations and elevating the KATCH ONE to give it a lighter look.

PERFORMANCE

Driving the KATCH ONE are 4 x 50 watts peak, closed loop Class-D amplifiers. Utilising DSP for active crossover, the 
amplifiers are directly connected to the drivers, maximisingthe performance.

The low Signal to Noise ratio (100dB) of the amplifier module ensures that even the smallest detail in a quiet passage is passed on to the drivers, clear and undistorted. 

Feeding the amplifier is a 200 watts peak switch mode power supply, with ample power delivery to handle everything from a concert to a powerful explosion. The dual transformer design ensures that the standby power is kept very low, and headroom to handle the power requirements of the amplifiers is always available. 

The KATCH ONE offers two different sound modes: Wide and Focus. They are designed to let the KATCH ONE perform with the widest selection of movies, documentaries, news and music. 

The first setting offers a focused and very linear audio reproduction that serves to draw out the often elusive mid-range frequency area. 

The other setting offers a wide, impressive and very dynamic audio rendering. This sound mode puts the emphasis on bringing a room filling, surprisingly powerful experience. Both sound modes deliver perfectly on the main goals of a high-quality soundbar - improving the TV experience through great sound.
