A 4.5" midrange with a coaxial dome tweeter in a sealed (?) die cast aluminum cabinet. There are 6 tension rods (stainless steel?) and an amplifier circuit board inside the speaker.

I dunno. It might sound good, but not necessarily great.

Moderately interesting design, but doesn't seem to be biamped, nor to use DSP. IMO, that's giving up a lot of potential in 2016. I'm skeptical that this will even match the Vanatoo.

I'll just stick with my Tannoy Sensys DC1's, biamped off a Pioneer amp... Dual Concentric, baby <3

Looks interesting tho, but as hammer mentions, some lost potential here.
