Product Overview

DALI KATCH G2 is the 2nd iteration of DALI's portable wireless speaker, KATCH. Compared to Bluetooth speakers from consumer brands, the KATCH G2 has a more premium design and targets a more sophisticated market segment, one that perhaps owns DALI loudspeakers in their homes.
The KATCH G2 comes in a 2-way, closed box design with twin tweeters, twin woofers, and twin passive radiators. Outside, it inherits the elegant design of the original KATCH, including a leather strap and two gold anchors.
I/O-wise, the KATCH G2 is somewhat limited, though it supports Bluetooth 5 and 3.5mm Line-in. DALI boasts a long, 30-hour battery life for the speaker, and has added a USB port for charging other devices, essentially making it the KATCH G2 a power bank (though its 3300mAh internal battery is not quite so generous).
