Whilst still being a compact speaker, the SPEKTOR 2’s larger inner volume delivers extra bass performance. The increased surface areas of the 5¼” woofer and 25 mm soft dome tweeter increases the overall sound pressure levels, making this the perfect choice for larger rooms that still require a compact speaker. The SPEKTOR 2 will also find itself at home in any surround position, helping you get that fully immersive movie experience.
Tangent Ampster BT II HiFi Amplifier
Great sound needs a great amplifier
The second generation of Tangent’s award-winning Ampster BT Amplifier is a small and conveniently sized amp with a wealth of features for various home and commercial applications. By combining your Tangent Ampster BT ll amplifier with good quality speakers, such as the Tangent Spectrum X4 or X5s, the result is stunning optimum audio reproduction for the system’s size and price.
Connect wirelessly or wired
You can stream your music from your smartphone, tablet or computer directly to the Ampster BT II amplifier wirelessly via Bluetooth, or by connecting your device using an AUX cable. Digital and analogue line inputs, a sub-output and a USB charging port are also provided.
Wake up on Bluetooth and multi-room compatible
With the second generation BT II you no longer have to worry about turning off your amplifier. It goes on standby when the music stops whilst playing music via Bluetooth and wakes automatically when you resume playback. In addition, the BT II can be woken from standby from the AUX minijack input which allows you to connect most multiroom or network systems to it. For example, add a Chromecast Audio, AirPort Express, or other Wi-Fi devices to the AUX input - then the Tangent Ampster BT II will turn on as soon as you start playing through your network.
A mini amplifier with a big sound
The new Tangent Ampster BT ll fits effortlessly into Tangent's new mini system. By combining the Tangent Tuner ll & CD ll, you can enjoy a complete, compact sized HI-FI system with premium audio quality and performance. Each Ampster BT ll, Tuner ll and CD ll is less than the width of an A4 sheet of paper and is only 7cm high, making the system only 21cm high when stacked! So the small size of each component takes up less space in the living room, kitchen - or wherever you enjoy your music.
A remote control for all
The remote control for the Tangent Ampster BT ll also operates the Tuner ll and CD ll, so when all three components are stacked together or placed separately, each remote control can be used to operate all components. Or you can choose to use only one remote control and put the two other remotes away! Another useful feature of this second generation Ampster BT is an IR infrared input. This enables you to place the Tangent Ampster BT II wherever it’s not possible to operate with its remote control. Just place the supplied IR eye somewhere where the remote control can reach it, then connect the cable to the External IR input on the rear panel.

Dali Spektor 2 BookShelf Speakers
The DALI SPEKTOR 2 packs a larger inner volume than the SPEKTOR 1 and thereby delivers an extra bass performance. Getting this much Hi-Fi performance from a speaker in this price range not only took all of our experience and knowhow, but also hours and hours spent in the listening room, improving the driver and crossover designs to create the perfect audio performance.
The compact SPEKTOR 2 - and its slightly smaller sibling SPEKTOR 1 - are ideal for wall mounting, shelf or stand positioning in combination with any compact Hi-Fi music system. The SPEKTOR 2 will also find itself at home in any surround position, helping you get that fully immersive movie experience.
The DALI SPEKTOR 2, like all DALI loudspeakers, has been designed in accordance with our fundamental acoustic and electro-acoustic principles, and a strong belief that clarity and an authentic, honest sound reproduction will get you even closer to the full impact of a live music experience.
DALI makes it easy to integrate your loudspeakers into any room. Both the driver materials and geometry applied in the SPEKTOR 2 have been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern.
You will experience a well-integrated sound, even when listening significantly off-axis. And, as you are often not seated directly in front of the loudspeaker when listening to music, this is important.
Optimizing the audio signal for off-axis distribution results in the signal reaching your ear directly and the signal reflected off the room surfaces, to have a coherent balance. This means a consistent high sound quality across a much wider listening area. At the same time, it offers greater freedom and flexibility in positioning the loudspeakers.
An added benefit is hugely reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion, as these will always be stronger in an on-axis response. This is also the reason why all DALI speakers are not designed for toeing-in.
The SPEKTOR 2 tweeter is able to render high frequencies with high accuracy. This means very short excursions, but at high speed, - or rather – with high acceleration. In other words, it features a low moving mass and a strong motor.
The tweeter in the SPEKTOR 2 is based on an ultra-light weight weaved fabric. Compared to most soft dome tweeters in the market, the DALI dome material is less than half the weight; 0.056 mg per mm2.
The beauty of the soft dome tweeter is its impressive ability to play even the lowest parts of the high frequency range without any break-ups. This is crucial when handling the all important hand-over from the woofer to the tweeter. Not having to push either the woofer or tweeter beyond what they do best results in a seamless transition and preservation of every detail in the mid-range frequencies.
The increased surface areas of the 5¼” woofer increases the overall sound pressure levels, making this the perfect choice for larger rooms that still require a compact speaker.
The wood fibre cones are a DALI trademark, as well as a proven DALI technology. The SPEKTOR 2 cone membrane is crafted from a mix of fine grained paper and wood fibre pulp. This makes the cones very ridged, very light weight and the unevenness in the structure of the membrane helps minimize unwanted surface resonances.
Combining the well-behaving wood fibre cone with the low-loss rubber surround and spider suspension results in the reproduction of even the smallest micro-detail in the signal – unfiltered and with high accuracy.
The structure of the chassis was designed for optimal strength and airflow. Keeping the woofer structure strong eliminates internal vibrations and the optimised airflow around the cone area keeps movements unhindered, resulting in the ability to transform as much of the energy from the amplifier into movement.
The woofer used in SPEKTOR 1 is developed specifically for this speaker. Even small details like the angle of the cone and the size of the dust cap is optimized for the best possible integration, dispersion and performance.
The primary function of any loudspeaker is to convert the electrical signal from the amplifier into a realistic audio experience in the listening room. Any distortion or coloration of the original signal by drivers or enclosures is by definition a degradation of the sound.
Clarity in an audio signal is obtained by low loss of information in combination with creating a smooth and seamless reproduction in both the time and frequency domain.
By using only DALI designed and custom-built drivers, the need for frequency correction in the crossover is eliminated. This enables us to design an exact crossover out of quality components which ensures that the signal loss is close to zero.
Another fundamental is the lowering of mechanical distortion. This to make sure that the connected amplifier will not be exposed to a larger than necessary challenge, causing loss of detail in the signal even before it has the chance to reach the loudspeaker.
Through very low mechanical loss, the most fragile sound details, even at very low listening levels, are preserved. This is the only way to obtain the sensation of ultimate transparency and “liveliness” from reproduced loudspeaker sound.
