Connectivity-rich professional series 8×8 HDMI/HDBT+mirror matrix system with long-range video (4K 40m/1080p 70m) and powerful control options. A ‘one-wire’ UHD/4K-capable whole-home AV hub, that hides home entertainment devices centrally and makes them universally available on every display.
Completing both our OPTICON line-up and any serious home cinema sound system, the OPTICON VOKAL centre speaker presents the perfect harmony of power and control. Arguably the most important element of cinema surround, the VOKAL is key when it comes to having movie dialogue and detail delivered clearly and crisply without getting lost amongst the effects and incidental music of movie soundtracks.
Also the component that handles the bulk of the direct front action, choosing an effective centre speaker is essential to the whole home cinema experience. This is why we designed the VOKAL to be a fool-proof hit in any home, both in terms of performance and physicality.
Firstly, armed with our sublime 6½ inch low-loss Wood Fibre Woofer, Hybrid Tweeter module and front-pointing bass port, you can be assured that the action on the screen in front of you is seamlessly soundtracked, with deftly handled detail drawing you deeper in. Perfect with any of the compact speakers in the series, but at the same time powerful enough to match the OPTICON 8.
Secondly, with an eye on practicality, the OPTICON VOKAL has also been designed to fit most makes of Hi-Fi furniture due to the front facing bass ports, meaning it can be neatly stowed away – a plus point for aesthetically minded home owners and home cinema custom installers alike. But it will work just as well out in the open.
The OPTICON VOKAL features the same low-loss Wood Fibre Woofer found in our flagship EPICON series, alongside our unique SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) magnet motor system and a reworked version of our Hybrid Tweeter module also found in the RUBICON, all of which works together along with a individual bass reflex port for the woofer to produce audio exactly as the recording artist originally envisioned it.
The centre loudspeaker covers an essentially important sound zone, since this is where the majority of dialogue in movie soundtracks is to be found. ZENSOR VOKAL is engineered to cover this zone and thereby establish a truly realistic voiceand surround experience.
The sonic integration of ZENSOR VOKAL, which should ideally be placed on a shelf below your TV screen, is highly convincing as is the voice matching to the other models of the range. For high-powered surround solutions, ZENSOR VOKAL is a perfect match for the DALI SUB E-12F.
The sonic integration of ZENSOR VOKAL, which should ideally be placed on a shelf below your TV screen, is highly convincing as is the voice matching to the other models of the range. For high-powered surround solutions, ZENSOR VOKAL is a perfect match for the DALI SUB E-12F. At best, when watching a great movie, you forget time and space. ZENSOR VOKAL is created to complete just that sonic illusion of being there yourself.
Chord Odyssey X uses the same materials as Rumour X. Odyssey’s heavier gauge conductors bring so much more detail and dynamics to a system, along with a degree of control and definition that can transform the performance of both floor and stand mounted loudspeakers. Odyssey was launched in 1998 and set a new standard of performance. It’s neutrality, its compatibility and consistency of performance from system to system made it very rapidly our most popular speaker cable.
Hi-Fi News magazine liked Chord Odyssey so much because of its performance and price that it won the best speaker cable award for five years in a row.
Over the years, changes have been cosmetic only. The current version has a white PVC outer jacket with a diameter of 8mm, still discrete in speaker cable terms and still good enough to let even the biggest of systems sing like they should.
Previous versions of Odyssey speaker cables used PTFE insulation (often referred to as Teflon™) and until the arrival of Taylon®, this was our “go to” material. Although expensive, PTFE offered the best performance.
Material technology is constantly developing and improving and alternatives to PTFE are now available. While the high cost of Taylon® prevents us from using this in all of our ranges, another insulator – XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene) came to our attention. One particular version of this material proved to be clearly better than PTFE, so Odyssey X was born.
The conductors used in Odyssey X are also found in Chord Epic and Epic XL speaker cables.
If you’re considering Odyssey X you should also have a listen to the similarly priced Chord Shawline X.
Rayno sits on the board of Directors as a shareholder. He has been with the company since 2003, originally working as an employee in the position of Sales Manager. At that time it was a far smaller enterprise, consisting of 1 branch with 6 staff members. In 2008 the original owner sold the company to the van Heerden family, who officially took over as of May 2008 and have since managed to grow it into what it is today.
Rayno has created and maintained excellent relationships with motor manufacturers.
Thanks to him, Planetworld is a supplier to the likes of Nissan, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Ford, Subaru, Datsun, KIA, Haval and Toyota to mention a few. Along with his team, Rayno sources products then, working closely with the manufacturer, helps develop and customise them to suit the South African market. To date, he has created inhouse brands – OneNav, Planet Multimedia, Smart Mirror and TyreTech.
Rayno credits his obsession with service and his dedication to customer satisfaction to his 15-year career as a waiter. He’s always had an adventurous side enjoying hobbies such as hang gliding, skateboarding, surfing and trail running. As per family tradition, Rayno loves his music and plays a number of instruments, even having composed a few of his own original songs.
