The Downside
The speakers should ship with high-quality jumpers for straight wiring in lieu of bi-wiring. In the U.S. market, consumers need an extra connection like a hole in the head. The audio benefit (if any) isn’t worth the grief. At a minimum, there should be a gold-plated jumper to bridge the two connectors. The provided zip chord is an insult to the quality of the speakers.

The subwoofer power cord is too short. The addition of an extension cord is an invitation for noise for today’s modern home theater. What Dali should consider for future products is a really long cord, a detachable cord or a long retractable cord, the kind you would find in a Miele vacuum cleaner.

Speakers this fantastic should have more versatile speaker terminals that more readily accept spade-type connectors. They are the standard for U.S. home theater systems.

Conclusion
The Dali Suite 2.8 speaker system represents one of the best speaker values on the market today. I am confident that the Suite 2.8 system provides about 75 percent of the experience of my reference Revel home theater system, yet sells for about one-quarter the price. Consumers looking for outstanding speaker value in the under-$5,000 price point would be totally crazy not to consider the Dali Suite 2.8 system, along with offerings from B&W, Energy and Paradigm. The bottom line is that I loved these speakers and never knew home theater could sound so good for only $3,500.
