The DALI Callisto System Redefines High-End Audio
Imagine an audio system with almost no wires. If you are an audiophile, you might cry heresy; one cannot possibly obtain high-end audio from a wireless system. But wireless technology has come a long way, as well as other technologies like compact and efficient class D amplifiers and DACs (digital to analog converters), which have enabled audio designers to think outside the box in designing new audio systems for the 21st century.
Such is the case with DALI. The word “audiophile” is built right into their Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries name, and the Scandinavian company has been making hi-fi speakers for 35 years.
DALI is known for their neutral, highly musical speakers as well as elegant Danish design. With the Callisto product, DALI sought to reimagine an audiophile system. With music coming from both local and Internet digital sources, the time was right to make a system to fit today’s digital audio world. If you are looking for a system that marries audiophile sound with wireless convenience, read on to see if DALI’s Callisto is right for your Vancouver listening room.

Often when you’re interested in a product or technology, you turn to the internet. You Google a product to see reviews, look up technical specifications, and read articles about features and tests.

Why? Because a true smart home automation experience is not about specs and features. It is about finding solutions to make your life simpler. So, if you’re considering adding something to your home, you may find it difficult to evaluate what automation technology can really do for you and which options will fit your needs and lifestyle.
