Strongly recommended by Stereophile magazine for one of the better sounding speakers for under $2,000, they are now ready to go to a new home for under $1,000. The typical warm and rich sound of Dali speakers are strongly evident through the Ikon 6. Bass was not thunderous but you won’t miss it either. The mid-range was its usual full self and the ribbon tweeter rounded up its sweet and nicely sculptured highs. If you are searching for a pair of bookshelves and stands that cost around $1,000, the Ikon 6 will be the better bet. You don’t have to deal with the stress of the bookshelf speaker falling off the stands and you get better bass response, meatier mid-range and sweeter highs from the Ikon 6.
Cosmetically, there are some minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. One of the dome tweeter has small dimples but this has no impact on the sound. We have the extension footers for added stability but not the spikes. You can easily find alternatives in eBay and order them from the US distributor. The original boxes are beat up so we will be wrapping another box around it for safe shipping. They are shipped as two boxes from the factory so factor in times two for the shipping. Finish is wenge.
