Stereo Solution

The KUBIK series provides a true stereo solution with a genuine sound stage through traditional speaker technology.

Aluminium Cabinet

A rigid construction that facilitates a huge inner volume enabling a powerful bass performance in a compact cabinet.

Wood Fibre Cones

This mix paper pulp and wood fibre makes the cones stiff and light which ensures that every micro detail in the signal is reproduced unfiltered.

Connectivity

Easy connectivity through a wide variaty of sources - e.g. Bluetooth, USB (Micro), Optical (Toslink) and RCA (Chinc).

The DALI KUBIK ONE is an audiophile all-in-one sound system designed by a team with a passion for genuine hi-fi reproduction.

It offers a broad range of connectors such as Bluetooth, USB, Analogue input and no less than two Optical inputs offering the option of connecting to both a TV and an audio player at the same time. The variety of connectors ensures that any device will connect to the KUBIK ONE at the best possible quality. To improve ease of use even more, the KUBIK ONE features wake-up on signal and IR learning. The wake-up on signal turns on the KUBIK ONE when any signal is detected on any input, including Bluetooth. The clever IR learning enables the use of an existing remote control to navigate the KUBIK ONE.

KUBIK ONE is a true DALI loudspeaker at its core, equipped with well-known DALI loudspeaker technologies: soft dome tweeters, wood fibre cones, low-loss rubber surrounds, glass reinforced polymer basket and a fully digital 4-channel stereo Class D amplifier.

The KUBIK ONE can be placed anywhere; on a TV cabinet, on a shelf, desk or mounted on the wall. With its black chassis and options of black and white grilles, the Kubik One will fit right into most home decors.

The essence of the DALI KUBIK ONE is connectivity. This elegantly designed active speaker enables you to enjoy music from a wide variety of sources. The broad range of connectors ensures that any device will connect to the KUBIK system at the best possible quality.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless standard with almost 20 years of use in mobile and portable devices. The KUBIK ONE offers aptX protocol for the best transfer of audio for the most demanding of listeners.

Optical (Toslink) & IR Learning

When connecting an external speaker to a flat screen TV, using an optical connection (TOSLink) is one of the best audio solutions. The KUBIK system has a built-in, easy to use IR learning system that can be paired with almost any remote control to navigate every function. Control the volume, mute, power and source select in three easy steps.

Subwoofer

If using the KUBIK ONE system in larger room or a TV environment, extra bass can improve the audio experience greatly. The KUBIK system lets you connect any active subwoofer directly. Connecting a subwoofer is automatically detected and the audio settings of the KUBIK ONE changes so the amplifier automatically sets the crossover point so anything below 80Hz is diverted to the Sub.

Analogue

The KUBIK ONE system offers two means of analogue input: An RCA (AUX) connector (placed underneath the unit), and a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack connector (placed on the side). The mini-jack input can be used to quickly connect a mobile audio source, such as an iPod or any other MP3 player, to the KUBIK ONE system.

USB

If playing audio from a PC or Mac, using the KUBIK ONE system as an external speaker is possible via the USB audio connector. Offering an easy and driver free interface to the PC or Mac, it is the perfect choice for your desktop audio system.

Picking the right amplifier for the KUBIK ONE sound system was no simple process. With many excellent choices available it came down to pure listening, a lot of listening. After picking the best possible solution, DALI's R&D team set out to refine the amplifier, the power supply and the layout of the circuit board, to perfectly match the needs of the KUBIK ONE system.

The 100 Watt Class D amplifier is a true active solution, offering a fully digital crossover, direct handling of digital sources and a high quality AD converter. The four channel stereo amplifier (4 x 25 Watts) controls the audio signal to the woofer and the tweeter modules individually. This is a major reason behind the high quality performance of the KUBIK ONE system, since it makes it possible to control and optimize the audio stream perfectly for the drivers used in the KUBIK ONE system. Having that level of control lets the acoustic engineers transform every bit of information into accurate motion in the drivers.

A 'Switch Mode Power Supply' (SMPS) offers consistent output, compact size, low heat emission, and a maximum power output of 120 Watts. By integrating the SMPS into the KUBIK ONE, the power supply can be tightly optimised for the amplifier and the signal path between power supply and amplifier is shortened to eliminate reactance to near zero. The integration also eliminates the need for a clumsy external power brick. At the same time the SMPS rejects "dirty" mains power noise more effectively than a traditional power supply, letting the KUBIK ONE system continue to work at top quality even in areas with a fluctuating mains supply.

A crucial part of the DALI sonic definition is related to the use of the soft dome tweeter module. Optimised and enhanced over many years, the soft dome tweeter is built around a powerful ferrite magnet and very narrow magnet gap.

This type of magnet enables the KUBIK ONE sound system to handle more power and helps disperse the heat generated around the fast moving voice coil quicker, thereby reducing power compression. This in turn allows the tweeter to reproduce high frequencies with higher accuracy, giving the KUBIK ONE system an impressively detailed sound.

The KUBIK tweeter is constructed on the basis of an ultra light-weight weave fabric. Compared to most soft dome tweeters in the market, the DALI dome material is less than half the weight.

The positioning of the tweeter front plate near the dome has been optimised to create the optimal working conditions for the soft dome. The aim is to combine an extended frequency response with wide dispersion and low coloration, and improve the integration of both the tweeter and the mid/bass driver.

When building a high quality speaker system, high quality components are an essential part. This is why DALI only use drivers designed in house that specifically developed for the individual loudspeaker, and to match the DALI sound philosophies.

Using a glass reinforced polymer, a lightweight but extremely strong chassis is created for the 5.25” woofer. The nonmagnetic chassis increases the flux density in the magnet gap by 10%, adding more power and control to the magnet motor system.

The cone is connected to the chassis using a DALI low-loss surround, giving the cone undamped movement and retaining the fine details in the audio signal even at low volumes. The cone is made from a blend of wood fibre and paper pulp, to give it a stiff, lightweight but well-behaving structure. Driving the wood fibre cone is a strong magnet motor system based around a four layer voice coil.

The four layer voice coil is an crucial to delivering the required sound pressure. Generating 17% more force than a two layer system, and 27% less electrical Q, it gives a significant improvement in control of the entire moving part of the system. A copper clad aluminium wire is used for the four layers, to reduce weight of the coils, making them easier for the amplifier to drive and preserving sonic detail. The combination of all of these low-loss technologies results in a serious improvement in bass control, reproduction of micro details, and greater transparency.

The main housing is based on one piece of extruded aluminium. Aluminium is characterized by a stiffness approximately 15 – 20 times the value of MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) – the most frequently applied cabinet material for high quality speakers.

This allows the cabinet walls to be a lot thinner than with traditional materials, thus gaining internal volume. This can be done without losing the rigid structure, and ensures that all components can be fitted tightly onto the structures eliminating vibrations and unwanted resonances.

Besides strengthening the entire product, the aluminium also gives the cabinet a solid feel. The top of the KUBIK is crafted from the same aluminium, and reveals the solid build of the KUBIK ONE. The back plate acts as a heatsink for the amplifier and power supply.

Using aluminium makes it possible to not only create a compact cabinet that will be easy to place in any room, but also gives the KUBIK ONE a simple yet iconic look.
