Bottom Line:   
Look wery cool i moohogony finish, the vinyl could trick anybody into beliving it is massive mahogony
Bass sounds bommy if your amp. is too weak, you need at lest 300W at 4 Ohm's
but then they will pay yuo back with lots of hard and precise gut punching bass.
At first i tried using an NAD 216, but playing at high levels (INSANE LEVEL) they started being boomy in the low range, then i hooked my good old Denon POA-2200 up with them, oh my god.....that sounded like different speakers

Bottom Line:   
Good, solid bass. I like the two 10" basses instead of one 15" (had Cerwin Vega before). The mid-range is good for the price. Quite clear and follows the bass. The treble is good but not more. My NAD 214 PA has not enough juice to make these speakers get off the foor but I can still get loud! Spikes is neccessary...

Bottom Line:   
I use the Dali 909's for home cinema and music. Overall they are better for home cinema than for music use. The 16ft x 30ft room I am using them is filled no problem. They can be briven by a small amp e.g. 60 watts per channel but work best with a large amp such as my Tag Maclaren 200 watts into 4 ohms. The midrange with the Dalis sound very laid back and unreal. The best thing about the Dalis is the quality and quantity of bass they produce. They are ideal for modern music esp dance and R&B.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased the 909's through work about 3 months ago. I was first running them off a pioneer a757 reference integrated, which sounded bright and didnt quite have enough power for them. I have since upgraded to a NAD t741 receiver and Rotel RMB100 monobloc's, running Tara labs Prism 33i interconnects and Audioquest Hyperlitz speaker cable. Wth the 200 watts (4ohm) supplied by the rotel's and smoother better cables, the 909's really start to open up and perform well, revealing even the most subtle breath of a female vocalist, or the resin on a violin bow. But friends of mine who have the same speakers claim they are too bright in the treble. The problem (and advantage)is, a speaker this neutral, will reveal every single nuance and weak link in your system, as well as poor recordings. This can of course enable you to tailor the rest of the system to suit your taste, knowing the speakers will only ever relay what is behind them in the system.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these speakers to be the mainspeakers of my hometheatre. The sound is not far from the musical Dali Evidence 870's witch are a lot more expencive than the 909's. The amplifier I use with them is a Nad 216THX, witch puts these speakers to the awesome dynamics with 2x225W RMS & 2x500W Peak. They don't go very deep so I built up a subwoofer with a SPL Dynamics 15 inch PRO15-D2 element in a 120 litre vented box with a Nad 218THX amp witch pushes over 800W rms & 1400W peak to this woofer. When listen to for AC/DC and the bass kicks so hard that it's undescribevable and the stereo image is also very good!
