Dali KATCH Gadget Guide

With busy lifestyles, having a compact and portable speaker that not only sounds but looks incredible and can charge your phone or tablet on the go is vital. Dali’s new KATCH is a compact and portable battery-powered Bluetooth speaker that incorporates modern design with innovative technology to ensure ultra-clear audio projection.

The KATCH has two audio profiles ‘clear’ and ‘warm’ to ensure the best possible audio experience for the user. ‘Clear’ offers users clear audio, perfect for everyday listening. The ‘warm’ profile is just right for listeners who want their music to have more bass, and it produces great audio projection in larger rooms.

The Dali KATCH easily connects via Bluetooth 4.0 or a 3.5mm jack. Knowing that users will bring their portable speaker on the road, Dali includes a USB charge output (3.5mm Aux connection) to keep phones or tablets charged while everyone rocks to the beats. Users are able to integrate their home network if they connect their Dali KATCH to a Chromecast Audio dongle.

Dali has incorporated trend research with its innovative designs to ensure both its design and colours suit a range of users. It incorporates organic curves with a leather strap to ensure the speaker is portable and it is available in three colour schemes, Dark Shadow, Cloud Grey and Green Moss. The Dali KATCH uses its aluminium body to encapsulate two 21mm light-weight, soft dome tweeters and pair of 3.5in woofers to produce ultra-clear, low, mid-range and bass. The extremely compact tweeters ensure a clear mid-range frequency without any dropouts.

Users are able to ‘stereo pair’ via Bluetooth and connect with an additional Dali KATCH, perfect for gatherings with family and friends to create a wireless stereo experience. The internal Li-Ion battery has a capacity of 2600mAh and offers listeners up to 24-hours of playback, plus it recharges to full within two hours.

The rounded Dali KATCH delivers ultra-clear audio through its digital amplifier and intricately designed drivers. The heart of the Dali KATCH is its Class-D amplifier, which delivers 2 x 25 watts and is connected to the DSP. The DSP’s in-built DAC balances the stereo signal when communicating with the amplifier stage to ensure 95 percent of the output power is derived from battery power.
