Building on over 40 years of loudspeaker research and development and drawing inspiration from the DALI KORE flagship loudspeaker, the new RUBIKORE Series uses several innovative technologies, including Clarity Cone Technology SMC Drivers, SMC-KORE Inductors, Hybrid Tweeter Modules with a brand new Low-Loss Dome Tweeter, and Continuous Flare Bass Reflex Ports.

These features ensure the new loudspeaker range delivers high-performance and high-end sound quality in both two-channel hi-fi and multichannel home theatre system set ups.


The RUBIKORE 8 and RUBIKORE 6 floorstanding loudspeakers employ multiple DALI KORE inspired technologies.

RUBIKORE 8 combines three new 6.5-in double magnet paper and wood fibre Clarity Cone Technology SMC Bass/Midrange Drivers while the RUBIKORE 6 combines two. They are used to help ensure natural midrange clarity, free from colouration. DALI SMC Motor Systems are utilised to minimise driver distortions and losses.


Within their crossover circuits, both speakers employ SMC KORE Inductors to significantly reduce signal loss. Fitted with Continuous Flare Reflex Ports that maximise efficiency while simultaneously minimising turbulence and noise, the RUBIKORE 8 and RUBIKORE 6 adopt a new Low-Loss Dome Tweeter, inspired by the EVO-K Hybrid Tweeter used in the DALI KORE, without ferrofluid in the magnet gap, for ultimate resolution in the high frequencies.

RUBIKORE 8 is designed for large scale, wide dispersion, low loss and amplifier optimised sound quality, while RUBIKORE 6 is designed for high-end stereo and home cinema systems in medium to larger sized rooms.

Available from June, the RUBIKORE 8 is £5,999 per pair and the RUBIKORE 6 is £4,499 per pair.

RUBIKORE 2 Bookshelf Loudspeaker

The RUBIKORE 2 brings DALI KORE inspired technology and performance to a compact stand, shelf, or furniture mount loudspeaker.


Designed to provide high-end sound quality in smaller rooms, the RUBIKORE 2 combines a new 6.5-in Double Magnet Paper and Wood Fibre Clarity Cone Technology SMC Bass/Midrange Driver with a new DALI designed, ultra low loss, Lightweight Dome Tweeter. The result gives a wide dispersion, low loss sound for even the smallest listening spaces.

The RUBIKORE 2 is £2,299 per pair, available from June.

RUBIKORE On-Wall Loudspeaker

The RUBIKORE On-Wall is designed for both traditional stereo and home theatre rooms. IT combines the 6.5-in Paper and Wood Fibre Clarity Cone Technology SMC Bass/Midrange Driver with a rotatable DALI Hybrid Tweeter for remarkable low loss, amplifier optimised and wide dispersion sound quality, no matter if it’s used in stereo, centre or surround channel applications.


The speaker features a rotatable DALI Hybrid Tweeter module that combines a 29mm low-loss soft Dome Tweeter and a 17x45mm Planar Tweeter working together to create high-frequency detail. The voice-coil and diaphragm of the RUBIKORE dome tweeter is extremely light and agile, allowing it to deliver clarity, even at low frequencies, while the Planar Tweeter is the master of fine detail and wide dispersion in upper frequencies. The rotatable tweeter baffle allows use in stereo, centre or surround channel applications.

Priced at £1,299 per pair, the RUBIKORE On-Wall is available from June.

RUBIKORE Cinema LCR Home Cinema Loudspeaker

The RUBIKORE Cinema is a home theatre LCR solution delivering high-performance loudspeaker solutions to the left, centre and right channel roles in home cinema systems. Featuring a compact shelf or stand-mount enclosure, with rotatable DALI Hybrid tweeter, the RUBIKORE Cinema can be installed in either landscape or portrait orientation, making it possible to use the exact same speaker for front and centre applications for the ultimate home cinema experience.


In addition to its rotatable Hybrid Dome and Planar Tweeter, the RUBIKORE Cinema employs a Clarity Cone Technology Bass/Midrange Driver Diaphragm which helps ensure natural midrange clarity, free from colouration, whilst its double DALI SMC Motor Systems minimise driver distortions and losses. As with the rest of the RUBIKORE Series, RUBIKORE Cinema adopts audiophile-grade Mundorf capacitors to reduce losses still further.

The RUBIKORE Cinema is priced at £1,799, available from June.

The RUBIKORE Series is available in finishes including High Gloss Black, High Gloss Maroon, Natural Walnut, and High Gloss White.
