For Sale - DALI Zensor I Bookshelf Speakers

These are very attractive quality real wood veneer Danish speakers, anybody familiar with Dynaudio knows how well the Danes build speakers. I bought these from a Polkie some years back who brought them back in his checked luggage from across the pond he liked them so much, (his Scandinavian friends wrote some friendly stuff on the back of the speakers.) I never intended to sell them but I just have too many speakers. In very nice shape. Characteristic of Danish speakers, the sound from these little bookies will not disappoint, the bottom end is surprisingly strong and the highs are delicious. $250 in my pocket. I have the original packaging so will ship CONUS on your dime. Located in Central Wisconsin. 100 posts minimum good standing Polkies only.

    I've used these for near field listening with truly excellent results. They really light up with power. I've also used them in a 2 channel system connected to my Samsung plasma and Pioneer Elite SC-05 also with quite surprising results.

    I like the writing on the back, gives the speakers some history/personality.

    Great seller. Bought my Dynaudio’s from him. They were perfect and sounded amazing. Buy with confidence. I just sold my LsiM 703’s last night. I need these like a hole in the head. Working right now on a place for them and road trip to pick up. Peace. D

    Dang it, I was hoping you didn't like them, and then sell them to me for like 4 bones. Great pickup you got there.

    I was considering these, but I need something that can throw a bigger picture of sound for a larger room.

    Yeah, these are very nice speakers. If you like Dynaudio you know how the Danish speakers are sweet. The guy I got them from hauled them all the way from Sweden as carry on. I'm really surprised nobody has bit on these but I've been around long enough to know I shouldn't be surprised. I can't think of a speaker for two bills these won't smoke.

    I'm in the same boat as rooftop. I can't think of where I'd use them (if I had the money to spare), but I know they are good stuff.

    Thank goodness. I had absolutely no use for them and was about to capitulate. Now I don't have to get *that* look from my wife when another package shows up.

    At least the tubes I can sneak into the house!

    Ha! Yes, tubes are REALLY easy to sneak past the wife into the house. Speakers etc not so much. I have had pretty good success though, moving things in when she is not home and sometimes it takes weeks before she realizes that there is more equipment in the house.

    I’m glad you got them. I really dug those little babies, and I was very surprised they didn’t get snapped up right away. As I said, the Polkie I got them from liked them so much he carried them all the way from Scandinavia. Just a really, really nice speaker.

    Hah, finally realized these were Sean's:

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."
  • kharp1kharp1 Posts: 3,296
    I wondered if that was the Sean the writing was referring to. Not enough to do any further research, but, that's because I'm lazy.

    I largely agree with his review, good imaging. I feel my system is fairly neutral and I feel the same that upper mids could have a bit more meat. One of the first thing's I noticed, but, as I've listened a second day, granted only 30 minutes each day, I have to say I'm noticing it less. They've done a good job of presenting the bass. As I mentioned earlier, it's not a substitute for a full range or sub, but, it does dig acceptably deep and never misrepresents it. No bloat, no hump I've picked up, yet. For a desktop or small space system they are somewhat over achievers, especially considering the pre owned price.

    When I went to adelfi in Singapore, out of the hundreds of brands on display, Dali was the only one that impressed me. Really the best, regardless of price on display (in those systems)
