"highly recommended"

"truly special"

Upping the audio ante to the extreme, the RUBICON 8 is simply stunning in terms of the epic soundstage it presents. The trio of woofers kick in at different frequencies, making the RUBICON 8 loudspeaker the pinnacle of your entry into the world of high-end audio at a mid-range price.

Delivering a totally transparent image with a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance, the wider sound dispersion afforded by DALI's hybrid tweeter helps the RUBICON 8 fill even the largest spaces with the purest audio your ears will ever witness.

A pair of the RUBICON 8 is all you need for a breathtaking stereo experience.  Or team the RUBICON 8 together with a pair of RUBICON 2 or RUBICON LCR, a RUBICON VOKAL and a SUB M-10 D to get an ideal surround experience.



With a pole piece constructed entirely from SMC, surrounded by a slitted copper cap, and enclosed within a large ferrite magnet, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised, and reduces distortion as never heard before.



The hybrid tweeter module is a DALI trademark and for the RUBICON series, it is built in Denmark. The hybrid tweeter module combines the dome tweeter with the ribbon tweeter for an amazing rendering of the high frequencies.


Using a wood fibre cone gives the in-house build woofer a light, rigid and randomly uneven membrane. Making it easy to move ensures even piston like movements and reduces the possibility of surface resonance greatly.



Dividing the mid-range and basse drivers into separated chambers enables DALI to individually tune every driver to its specific frequency range to maximise the woofer output.


With the introduction of the Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC) based "Linear Drive System", DALI have broken new ground in the loudspeaker industry. Utilising the technologies behind the SMC in the RUBICON 8, they created an extremely low distortion speaker that reproduces all musical details even at low volume. With the drivers manufactured in-house at DALI's Danish factory, and featuring the latest in magnet motor technology, the RUBICON 8 sets new standards for audio quality for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.

The RUBICON 8 draws upon the heritage from the SMC based Linear Drive System, originally introduced in the EPICON series. With the use of the technology from the SMC drivers, DALI have taken a step closer to removing all unwanted distortion. The bass drivers are optimised for long excursion, and the midrange driver for a large useful frequency range, insuring that roll-off is handled in the crossover and not in the driver. All this ensures that the benefit from SMC can be enjoyed by even more Hi-Fi lovers around the world.

In the RUBICON 8, DALI makes use of both the soft dome tweeter and the ribbon tweeter in a hybrid configuration, yielding an amazing rendering of the high frequencies. The voice coil used in the RUBICON 8 is designed to be very light and agile in order to achieve a broader bandwidth. This lighter voice coil is placed inside a powerful ferrite magnet that keeps a tight control of its movements.

The ribbon tweeter is the master of wide dispersion, and combining it with the soft dome, the tweeter module starts working as low as 2.5 KHz. This extreme bandwidth combined with ultra wide dispersion yields a very natural sound and is an important part of the DALI sound philosophy.

The woofer cone used in the RUBICON 8 draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologies, and has a light, rigid and randomly uneven microstructure. This lowers sthe complexity of the central part of the motor, ensures even piston like movements, reduces the possibility of surface resonance greatly and eliminates distortion to extremely low levels within the RUBICON 8.

The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON 8, and all of the components are situated in an aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.


The gracefully elegant exterior of the RUBICON 8 works as the base for the low-loss drivers. In every cabinet, the mid-range and bass drivers are separated into their own chambers. Turbulence is minimised through a bass reflex port placed directly behind each woofer, and the timing between the woofer and the bass port is thereby also optimised.

With a case made of solid MDF, the RUBICON 8 is available in High-Gloss Black, Rosso and Walnut finishes and comes complete with both spike set and rubber feet, along with a polishing cloth to keep it looking as stunning as it sounds.
