OFF - FOR SALE: DALI Rubicon 8 in Piano Gloss Black, Store demo, full warranty
Greetings All -
This is a pair of Dali's Penultimate speaker, the venerable Rubicon 8.
In particular, this was one of our many demo pairs of speakers at Ember Audio + Video, and as we are finishing liquidating our stock now, it's time to send them to a new home.
The speakers themselves are in remarkable condition and have less than 500 hours on them. We have cleaned polished and tested them before packing and they're as close
to perfect as can be, as you can see in the pics.
The Rubicon 8 is both incredibly powerful and efficient - making is a phenomenal choice for middle to large sized spaces and any amp over 80wpc, with an absurdly linear and
unusual impedance - never dropping below 3.6, thanks in large part to the inclusion of Dali's reference SMC driver across the whole of the design. The SMC, along with their
dual-tweeter hybrid ribbon and softdome composition offer musical warmth and a layered, tonally rich presentation that is equally detailed and grips every movement with an
While this pair is more than able to handle the loudest HT output with aplomb, it's ability to play coherently at both low and high volumes - with superbly realistic midrange,
never short on transparency - that makes it an equally well-suited reference speaker for those with high-quality integrated amplifiers and separates.
If you've got any questions about a potential match with your gear, we're more than happy to answer honestly and suggest solutions that will work. I've personally been a
Dali owner over the course of fifteen years and our store is well known and loved by the US distributor, Sound Organisation, if you'd like a reference.
All that said, happy listening!
