Dali Kubik One Soundbar Blk : 5star Sound- But Panasonic Incompatibility

I’m not sure what some of these other reviewers where on about. If this has the inputs you require and you are willing to spend this much, just go for it. I use it as a sound bar and a second sound system for playing music across bluetooth. I recently watched whiplash and birdman with this thing turned up relatively high and i was blown away. Yes, the remote is a little fiddly (you do get used to it though) and i may add a subwoofer in the future (to add a bit more low grumble for films) but i could not be happier with this soundbar. I actually replaced a geneva model cinema with this soundbar and i am so glad that i did. The cinema was great for films but as soon as i put music on, it was just to boxy. The kubik one is certainly one of the best all in one systems on the market (some people may prefer the naim muso but i actually prefer the kubik one and im a bit of a naim fan). To be very picky, the treble can be occasionally a little harsh and blockbuster movie soundtracks would benefit from a subwoofer but any negative comment about this product seems unfair to me.

5star sound- but panasonic incompatibility. Just replaced a yamaha yas105 with a dali kubik 1. The sound is way better, with a massive improvements in dialogue clarity. I also bought it because of the ir learning facility ( to be able to use your tv remote to control the sound bar too) well that’s ok for most people but it turns out it doesn’t work with panasonic tvs. In fact it will cause you all sorts of problems. To cut a long story short richer sounds york were brilliant and contacted dali who admitted the ir learning doesn’t work with panasonic remotes ( my cheap yamaha worked fine) we managed to reset the soundbar disabling the remote learning facility. So i use the rubbish remote supplied by dali alongside my panasonic tv remote. Richer sounds have found a work around and that’s to replace your panasonic remote with a logitech harmony one which should work.

I thought about buying a sonos playbar for a long time, but every time i heard it, i was underwhelmed by the muffled sound quality. I was beginning to doubt if i’d find something that fitted under my telly that was remotely comparable to proper speakers. And then i heard the kubik one. The sound is truly stunning – an event every time you play a new piece of music. So detailed, clear and lifelike. I’ve been going through all my fave tracks listening to them afresh. One drawback though is the lack of any eq settings apart from a switch for bass level on the back. Whilst i’m able to change the settings for my music via my phone or laptop, for tv i’m stuck with the default setting. This is amazing for movies but i personally find the zingyness at the high end a little tiring when i’m trying to watch a documentary or itv on a saturday night.

High hopes in the begining, but disappointed in the end. Very disappointedly the usb connection is limited to 16bit/48khz, much lower than the advertised 24bit/96khz. Say goodbye to the bass effects of the movie films, because without onboard dolby/dts decoder tv-s and dvd/bluray players discard the lfe channel when they downmix dolby 5. What use of a very expensive and supposedly high quality equipment when you are not able to listen to high quality content?.
