I heard it or similar, and it is not a great speaker. Cool effect with 360 degrees but not worth it to have ao low sound quality. Worst was treble.

I heard their floorstanding version driven with their mono block amps at a show. I walked in with an open mind. I was in awe of what the components looked like - nice and shiny. They had a lot of women handing out brochures in office clothing (all marketing). The sound - not so much. Diffused like an open baffle, but with less resolution. At the time I had the Linkwitz Orion and Gedlee Abbey (still own) for comparison.

The guy sitting in front of us had a RTA spectrum analyzer going and you could see on every song a seagull dip throughout the midrange on every song they played

Now I dont know if the mirror image petals were cancelling at our listening distance or what,
but these are interesting speakers and for whatever reason every time I have listened to these over the years they always play them way to loud for my tastes.

These are visitors from outer space and the prices are too.

David, I agree, they tend to play them extremely loud at shows.
