New from speaker specialist Dali at CES is the company's Motif LCR speaker, designed to match the interior design of modern living rooms (presumably Kevin McCloud of Grand Designs would approve).
Dali says its aim was to create a high-performance loudspeaker that would be compact and versatile. To that end, the die-cast aluminium body is available in gloss white or gloss black with chrome trim.
The Motif LCR comes with a unique Click'n'Connect wall bracket that houses all the connections for the speaker, and enables it to be mounted horizontally or vertically. Optional stands will be available shortly.
Customers can use the Motif LCR as part of a stereo set-up or multichannel surround sound system, and a Motif subwoofer is in development.
The two 11.4cm mid/woofers are designed with fibre cones and high frequencies are produced by a 28mm soft-dome tweeter with a neodymium magnet.
The Motif LCR will be available from February 2008 for around £350.
