DALI Mentor 1

These incredible bookshelf monitors from Danish DALI come at incredible savings. A no-brainer buy if they fit the bill! RETAIL: $1,800.

$1,399 (New in Box, cherry finish)

Essentially a MENTOR 5 with a single 5” bass/midrange driver, the modest dimensions of the high performance MENTOR 1 mini-monitor makes it ideal on its own in smaller rooms or combined with a subwoofer in larger spaces.

Because DALI carefully matches drivers with low mass and rigid cones with low-loss crossovers with ideal impedance characteristics, MENTOR 1 does not demand a lot of current in order to play well. This allows MENTOR 1 to shine when accompanied by a typical affordably priced receiver or amplifier.

The versatile MENTOR 1 offers you wide-open installation options. In addition to stand or shelf mounting, a dedicated bracket is available for easy wall mounting.
