- Small but powerful speaker that reveals great musicality and will set new standards for sound and performance from a compact speaker
Conceptually, MENUET is a compact bass reflex loudspeaker measuring only 25 x 15 x 23 cm/9.8 x 5.9 x 9.0”. Even though it is only based on a 4.5” woofer and a 28 mm/1.1” soft dome it more than makes the grade. Listen to these brilliant tiny loudspeakers and you will hear plenty of clean, undistorted bass, open and dynamic midrange and detailed/crisp highs.
The 4.5” woofer is airflow optimized to achieve the best possible coupling between the wood fiber cone and the real wood veneer cabinet. Even the woofer cut-out in the cabinet is made larger than normal to optimise openness and dynamic response. The oversized 28 mm/1.1” soft dome tweeter is able to start and stop with great speed and precision due to the very low mass of the dome assembly and a powerful motor system (the dome is approximately 30% lighter than comparable standard domes and the magnet in the motor system is made of the strongest neodymium material available). The DALI designed drivers, sturdy binding posts and high quality crossover is the key to achieving extraordinary performance from such a compact loudspeaker.
For optimum performance, MENUET should be positioned in a bookshelf or mounted on the wall using an optional wall bracket. With two threaded inserts on the rear of the cabinet, it is prepared for easy installation of the wall bracket without any hassle. The bracket is designed to ensure optimal clearance between the wall and the bass reflex port.

The DALI MENUET SE is a Special Edition of the DALI MENUET. It was created as a tribute to high-performance, compact stereo speakers.
Built on the legacy of the popular MENTOR MENUET and DALI MENUET, the DALI MENUET SE adds a new unique look as well as great improvements of the components, giving this special sibling a unique personality.
Using our knowledge and experience, we have improved the sound quality in the DALI MENUET SE and created a fantastic new eye-catching finish, Wild Walnut, which is made from a variety of natural walnut wood. The use of this stunning veneer means that every single pair of SE speakers will be unique in appearance. The cabinets are carefully matched and no two pairs will look the same.
