Dali reveals Zensor 1 AX and Zensor 5 AX wireless speakers

Dali says the two models are “sonically identical” to the passive versions, but instead each feature an integrated 2 x 50-watt Class D amplifier. The speakers come with one powered speaker and a partnering passive speaker, joined by a speaker cable.

Wireless connectivity comes in the form of aptX Bluetooth, so compatible aptX devices should offer better wireless sound. A subwoofer output allows users to increase the low-end punch, too.

A digital optical input accepts high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/96kHz and there's a single analogue input as well.

Both models are available in black, white or light walnut and follow a similar design to the passive versions. The new speakers are available from September, with the Zensor 1 AX costing £499 per pair and the Zensor 5 AX £799 per pair.

But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
