They might come from the same company, but these Dalis are very different from their standmount siblings, the Helicon 300 Mk2.
These are floorstanders, and the two-and-a-half-way design also counts an extra 16cm driver, though the dual tweeter array, like the Helicons, stays in place.
Play Daft Punk's debut set, Homework, and the 6s trump the 300s for bass – we're not talking wall-shuddering levels; instead they concentrate on getting taut definition and plenty of speed.
Everything's Hunky DorySwitch to vocally led tunes, and the Dalis wring the emotion from Bowie's Life On Mars. However, his Hunky Dory album also reveals a (fairly slight) weak point in that the Dali 6s are dynamic and open, but also sound a bit lean.
However, they prove they can rock with some gusto during Queen Bitch. These Mentor 6s have plenty of ability, especially in the bass.
