The new G2 version of the Katch is supposed to remain true to the sonic virtues of its predecessor, but has been equipped with Bluetooth 5.0, among other things, and is thus also ready for high-resolution audio files sent in the standards "aptX HD" and "AAC". The power supply of the Katch G2 has also been upgraded. Instead of the 2,600 mAh lithium-ion battery used in the original model – which provided a runtime of up to 24 hours with a single, full charge – a more powerful 3,300 mAh battery is installed in the Katch G2, extending the maximum playtime to 30 hours. The three color variants Chilly Blue, Iron Black and Caramel White, in which the Katch G2 is offered, are also new.
DALI has, however, made no changes in regards to the tried-and-tested operating concept; the driver line-up with two 21 mm dome tweeters, two 90 mm woofers and two passive membranes supporting the bass also stays the same, as well as the integrated digital amplifier with its 2 x 25 watts. The feature of pairing two Katch G2 for stereo playback is also still available.
In Germany, the Katch G2 is available immediately from authorized retailers, with the MSRP remaining unchanged at around €400.
