Mark Craven has tested the PHANTOM S-Series in September 2017’s edition of Home Cinema Choice. He looks at the PHANTOM S 5.1 system which included a pair of PHANTOM S-280, a pair of PHANTOM S-80, the PHANTOM S-180 as the centre channel and the DALI SUB K-14 F.

See below for some of Mark’s review quotes


First of all, Mark Craven takes a close look at the appearance of the S-Series “the Phantoms exhibit a premium finish and premium craftsmanship”.

Whilst testing film Impossible he mentions “The sound is spacious and ever-so crisp. Cracking branches snap with real bite from DALI’s bespoke tweeter array, and placement of effects is impressive, with a sense of vertical expansion as well as width.” Moving on to test movie Sicario he highlights “it’s a dynamic listen, too, with plenty of room between the quietest details and the loudest moments.”

Whilst testing the PHANTOM S-280s in a 2.1 setup with music, he describes them as a “hoot” to listen to.

He concludes the review by praising the S-Series: “The Phantoms are a remarkable innovation from DALI – in-wall enclosures that manage to sound as large, as dynamic and as well-defined in imaging terms as traditional models.”


The PHANTOM S-80 is the most compact in-wall speaker in the range. With its 8 inch bass/mid-range woofer working in combination with the rotatable hybrid tweeter module, it delivers a clear and well-defined audio reproduction – including a surprising bass performance.


The relative compactness of the PHANTOM S-80 makes it perfect for any placement in your audio system.

Front, centre, rear or high positions. The compact and slim cabinet offers a full frequency response similar


to that of a floorstanding loudspeaker, but without sacrificing valuable living room space. It delivers a no

compromise in-wall audio performance with the use of proven speaker technologies. This includes our

characteristic wood fibre cones, low-loss rubber surround, solid MDF front baffle, our signature hybrid

tweeter module and our superior innovative magnet design including a SMC pole piece.

All models are built around a rotatable hybrid tweeter module making them easy to install for any audio use

be it stereo, centre channel or surround.

We have optimised the primary 8” wood fibre woofer for both bass and mid-range performance.

Working in combination with the rotatable hybrid tweeter module, it delivers a clear and well-defined

audio reproduction – including a surprising bass performance. This ensures that the PHANTOM S-180

really stands out from the crowd.

The ultra slim 103 mm cabinet design fits into almost any standard wall.
