  • Excellent sound quality
  • Easy to set up and use
  • Integrates with other HDMI inputs
  • Can't be used for source devices

Summary

The Katch One is a slender but very tall soundbar, requiring more room than most beneath a TV. It's based on the company's Katch Bluetooth speaker. The soundstage was definitely confined to the cabinet in Focus mode, and the sound was somewhat thin with anemic bass, but the vocals were quite pronounced.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The Katch One is a slender but very tall soundbar, requiring more room than most beneath a TV. Connections include one HDMI input, which normally connects to a TV's HDMI ARC input. Focus mode delivers a focused stereo signal, while Wide mode is said to expand the sound beyond the cabinet.

DALI Katch One is a tall, slim soundbar that can also function as a wider audio system. At 86cm it's about the same width as a 40in TV. Features a total of 10 speaker drivers, a pair of 21mm soft dome tweeter sit above a couple of 89mm aluminium mid/bass drivers at either end of the front of the soundbar.

Cons[**]
  • Not the most bass-heavy

Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The Dali Katch One is a little less expensive than the Kubik One. The Danish company has crammed in four 9cm aluminium mid/bass drivers and four 11.5cm steel passive radiators inside the soundbar. Around the back, there are two optical ins should you wish to connect to your TV or add a music player. There's no LED display and all the buttons and little halo lights are on top, so it is difficult to see from your viewing position which one is currently selected.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous design
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Good range of audio inputs
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
