According to the Dali website:

 

Quote

This is a speaker that will give you real DALI high quality sound reproduction at the same time as it will be able to wake up, not just your next door neighbour, but the entire neighbourhood

 

Sounds like they need something punchy to drive them (and your neighbours).  If you aren't happy with them, is your amp up to the job?

 

Or did the neighbours start complaining 😱

I listened to these speakers back in 2006 when I first became interested in this hobby and was looking for my first set of speakers.  From memory, the concept range was Dali’s budget range. The Concept 10 was either the top or second top speaker in that range.

 

Dali is a respected Danish loudspeaker manufacturer.  Personally I found another speaker in the same price range that I liked more but really all that’s important is whether you like the speakers or not.

Dali is good but follow your ears above all else. Sometimes a $1k set of speakers will sound better to your ears than a $50k set.

I've heard good things about them.  But as others have said, you should trust your ears.  If you're happy with how they sound then you should be happy with them.

 

If you're curious, then take some time to listening to other setups to compare and learn about what you're after in your setup.  You may find even after that you're quite happy with what you have and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that!  Enjoy.

Depends on what you are looking to achieve, and budget.

They are the biggest of the concept range and need some room from the wall. If you can give them some room they are decent for the budget Dali range.

I had a pair for a while but couldn't give them the room they need. They also like a decent amp.

There Megaline speakers are world class in every respect

True but probably not an upgrade option a Concept 10 owner is considering.

A shame the VAF DC-X63 are no longer available.  A mate of mine ditched his Concept 10 in favor of them and loves the VAF's. I've never heard such deep, clean bass before either.

If you think they sound good keep them and move on, it’s a slippery slope chasing better sound, ignorance can be bliss particularly when you enjoy what you already have.

I've had a set of the concept 10 and they were nice sounding speaker. I prefer the Dali ikon 7 if you wanted to stick with Dali this could be a possible upgrade. 

 

There is also the Dali zensor 7 which I haven't heard. I did own a pair of the zensor 5 though and was extremely impressed by their huge sound and rather small footprint (wife friendly)

I had the Ikon 2s for years and never felt like I needed more, I added a small subwoofer at one point but it stayed unplugged most of the time. I never got to hear the 7s, but I imagine they were just more of a good thing.

 

Now I have the Opticon 8s and I cant see myself replacing them anytime soon.

I have a pair of Dali 109’s that I bought new back in 1995.
I had the foams and cones fixed/upgraded a few years back and added a bespoke tweeter on top.

They still sound fantastic and go VERY loud with a quality powerful amplifier. 
I recently bought a pair of ATC SCM40 speakers because the size is far more civilised.

I’ll be reluctantly selling the 109’s when the restrictions are over.
If anyone out there prefers pure, clean sound over ‘looks’, and if you can live with the huge size,  they are a great bargain buy. 
They out perform more expensive speakers for sheer power. They can go a fair bit louder than the ATCs and that’s saying something.
