DALI KATCH G2 is perhaps the best-sounding battery-powered Bluetooth speaker you can get. Wrapped in an elegantly rounded solid housing the specially developed drivers deliver the audio signal from the internal digital amplifier. It is easily connected via Bluetooth 5.0, supporting the excellent audio quality of apt-X, apt-X HD, and AAC. The DALI KATCH G2 also supports analogue input via mini-jack. With such a powerful portable speaker on your hands, we know you will love the USB charge output, keeping your phone or tablet charged while you rock your beats.
Available in three new colour schemes, Iron Black, Caramel White, and Chilly Blue, the DALI KATCH G2 will blend elegantly into almost any environment. A golden DALI logo coin anchors the genuine leather strap now colour-matched to the main colour scheme.
The DALI KATCH G2 is a portable loudspeaker and will be used in a large variety of situations. With its two different audio profiles, you can choose between a neutral frequency response, perfect for most listening situations, or a warmer response that will work perfectly in larger rooms or when the music needs just that little extra.
We have also improved the rubber feet, making sure that the DALI KATCH G2 will stick to the surface without loosing its grip.
Getting music to the DALI KATCH G2 is as easy as making a Bluetooth connection. Connect traditionally or use NFC for a quick effortless connection. The built-in Bluetooth 5.0 receiver will accept apt-X, apt-X HD and AAC connections if the source device is capable.
As an alternative, the DALI KATCH G2 has a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input, making it easy to connect non-Bluetooth devices. The mini-jack input is auto-sensing, eliminating the need for additional button presses to play music. Pressing the Bluetooth button with the mini-jack connected will allow you to toggle between the mini-jack input and Bluetooth.
Next to the mini-jack input is a USB charge connector and the power connector. The USB charge connector allows you to charge your music device when on the move, but also to drive a Chromecast Audio dongle or Amazon Echo for easy home network integration.
The internal Li-Ion battery has a total capacity of 3300 mAh, letting the DALI KATCH G2 play at normal volume for a long as 30 hours. The battery is replaceable and is manufactured by a quality battery brand manufacturer for the best possible stamina. Charge time is a little over 2 hours with the supplied charger.
Powering the DALI KATCH through the mains charger will enable it to play louder and with more energy. This can be recommended for optimal performance when playing loud party music.
The dedicated USB-out adds the possibility to charge your phone while on the move.
Based on a very strong neodymium magnet, the 21 mm light-weight soft dome takes up very little cabinet space while retaining a large membrane area. Both factors are extremely important in the DALI KATCH G2. The compactness of the treble driver leaves more space for the bass drivers.
The large surface area of the soft-dome ensures better downward reach into the mid-range frequencies without any break-up or drop-off and integrates seamlessly with the woofer in the all-important mid-range. The strong neodymium magnet delivers high power handling and high sensitivity to the soft dome tweeter, with a detailed, accurate and agile high-frequency reproduction as the result.
Designing a bass mid-range woofer with a long excursion in a shallow cabinet sounds like a contradiction in terms. Nonetheless, this was the task of the acoustics team. Using an unconventionally designed chassis, inverted membrane and special spider suspension, we managed to get the same maximum excursion as a similar-sized traditional woofer.
Every extra millimetre gained in internal depth is turned into true low-frequency reproduction, letting the woofer generate bass with only slight help from the DSP. Despite the limited baffle surface area, the woofer membrane is a relatively large 3.5. The outward turned cone is constructed from an aluminium membrane with a soft fabric dust cap. The stiff aluminium cone allows the woofer to move as much air a possible even at mid-range frequencies, and the combination of aluminium and fabric works to lower surface resonances, retaining detail and clarity.
By using two DALI KATCH G2 units, it is possible to form a wireless dedicated left/right stereo pair using Bluetooth between the units and as the source input. The connection uses one DALI KATCH G2 as the primary and the other DALI KATCH G2 as a secondary unit. The true wireless stereo mode has several advantages: Besides adding true stereo imaging, the extra drivers working together will deliver a significantly higher undistorted sound pressure and even improve the bass quality and extension. Perfect for when the party spreads from the living room to the kitchen!
