preferences. There are some who do not care
for soundstage and imaging. I do. I crave

Atlas deliver a tremendous 3-D image both

the end of a long search.
The Prometheus is an open baffle design

covers the 100Hz - 10kHz range. The very
low frequencies are covered by two active
subwoofers. This together gives a loudspeaker
with an 100dB efficiency and an easy 8 Ohm
impedance. The Prometheus is a speaker that
can play with grace and at the same time
with absolute authority
