Apogee Acoustics Scintillas 1ohm
The reviewers said:
It is said that Scintillas have a certain magic in the mid range and indeed I found this to be the case. Voices are superbly clear and clean but also incredibly lifelike. The mid range reminds of what modern Martin Logans sound like, but without their inherent colouration and beamy “forward” or “in your face” tendency. And in spite of there being no pre amp in the system, there is none of the emptiness, treble brittleness or lack of colour that I often experience in such minimized systems. Most notably is the coherence and transparency, braced by gentle and airy highs on the one end and firm, tuneful bass on the other end. A Scintilla is essentially a Full Range reduced in size, but this is not evident from a lack of bass or overall power
