The Best Bookshelf Speakers for Most People

 

After more than 90 hours of research and audio tests with 19 speakers and a three-person panel, we've found the best bookshelf speakers for most people. Audio from the $400 DALI ZENSOR 1 set sounded closest to a live performance. These bookshelf...

Dali Zensor 1 AX review

 

Dali has come up with a neat solution to a growing hi-fi problem...

Convenience ; Fast, articulate, enjoyable sound ; Decent connectivity

Small cabinets mean bass isn’t huge ; Separates will give better sound

A neat solution to what is becoming a greater need. A good idea, well executed

Dali Zensor 1 review

 

Although outclassed, the Dalis are good all-rounders, and thoroughly entertaining

Lively, agile sound Musical Good rhythmic drive Open, spacious soundstage, balanced Decently detailed

Not as dynamically subtle as class leaders

Overall though, if you’re after versatile, energetic, little speakers that’ll entertain you for years on end then look no further.

DALI Zensor 1 5.1

 

A dazzling Danish speaker package that's yours for under a grand

Perfectly-matched subwoofer offers seamlessly integrated bass, Dashing design with lacquered front baffles, Smooth, cohesive and weighty sound

Massive centre speaker, Boxy cabinets lack elegance, Lacks a little snap and scale

Dali Zensor 1 Bookshelf Speakers

 

I purchased the Zensor 1s in 2017 and can say I like them as much as my Golden Ear Aon2 which are highly reviewed. I don't think you can do any better for a bookshelf speaker in this price range. Great value and excellent sound. Sounds like live music...

Excellent Value with superb quality and sound

 

Delighted that we tried these out at Norwich RS; they are a prefect combination for the Pioneer HM86D unit we also purchased. They produce a detailed, undistorted sound, especially noticeable on the vocals. We felt these had the definite edge, when...

Superior sound quality!

 

Having had my old Hi-Fi system for 34 years, it has finally started to falter. Therefore a little out of touch with Hi-Fi systems, I went to Richer Sounds in Norwich and was recommended the Dali Zensor 1 speakers to go with the Yamaha CRXN470D. The...

Superior sound quality!

 

Having had my original Marantz for 34 years, I was a little out of touch with modern systems. When I read that you have to run these speakers in I thought it was a joke. But it was true, the more I play my music the stronger the sound gets through...

Beautiful

 

I upgraded from the Spektor to the Zensor and I'm so pleased I did. They are a beautiful looking pair of speakers. Awesome quality, crisp output coupled with my Yamaha Amp, Cambridge pre-amp and Debut Carbon turntable. Fantastic value for the value....

Small speakers but perform as pros

 

Replaced my ancient 'Acoustic Research' speakers which I loved because of the rich defined sound - the Dali speakers are much smaller yet provide not only the quality sound but the definition & instrumental clarity I never heard before - particularly...
