Bottom Line:   
These speakers are incredible....of all the speakers I have listened to including my nephews Magnepan 1.7s, these Apogee Centauras Slant 6s are astonishing....I use them with a Take 5 Energy sub and satelites....WOW! Mids and Highs are impeccable.. I purchased these speakers in mint condition from the original owner who rarely used them and when he did only listened at "low volume".

Listening experience is so amazing and down right additive....

Bottom Line:   
Superb in mid and high, fair in bass. Loose in mid low especially in male voice.Change to a good mid low interconect but sacrifice a little bit high. Use best in McCormack DNA 0.5 or a bit better in bass using Krell KSA 50.
Overall: the best money can buy for under $2000 and fight fiercely with most speaker double it price.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my Slant 6's in 1995. I have used them with a variety of equipment, but currently use them with a DVD player->CAL Sigma tubed D/A converter->homemade preamp-> Marantz 250 power amp (c. 1973). These speakers are very component sensitive, and the better the source, the better their performance.
I find the imaging of long ribbon tweeters to be different from dome tweeters in that the imaging is less pin-point, but more realistic. Pin-point imaging, while pleasing, is not natural in most concert halls. The sound emanating from my Apogees takes me closer to the sound of real music than most speakers I've auditioned. Vocals, particularly, can be uncannily realistic.
These can be very difficult speakers to place. In my current place, I have yet to find the ideal spot due to size/sound considerations.
Bass is quite deep, but could have better definition when compared to similarly priced B&Ws.
In the final analysis, the positive aspects of this speaker completely swamp the admittedly troublesome negative aspects. I very highly recommend them, particularly at the low cost when purchased over e-bay. Now if I could only afford better amplification!
5 stars for value at current e-bay cost
5 stars for sound in it's class

Bottom Line:   
Read the previous reviews and saw a pair of slant 6's on e-bay. Purchased for $800 with Klipsch KSW100 8" sub that matches well. First used in H/T application next to my 61" sony v-series with no sign of magnetic interference. They are not as effecient as JBL towers(90)they replaced nor Klipsch center(94) but with adjustment using HK AVR85 they worked very well in H/T setup.
These speakers are meant for music so I moved them to music only setup in a listening room. Despite other previous reviews the bass with these is very nice if you place them at least one foot from wall.They are 6 feet apart and my overstuffed leather easy chair is about eight feet from speakers. I am using these with Jolida 1501a hybrid amp and Jolida 603 tube cd player with amazing results. Had cheap Sony receiver and Fisher cd player at first and was somewhat dissapointed with level and type of reproduction of sound. Now with Jolida components these speakers excell! Imaging is incredible as you close your eyes and the sound is literally floating in the room. Bass is chest thumping even without a sub. Vifa woofer is very capable of low frequecy response for music but in H/T setup you could use the sub for explosions etc. If you dont know about Jolida stuff get ahold of Bill Baker at www.responseaudio.com. Bill is great to answer all your questions right away and wont force any item on you. Jolida stuff is so inexpensive you wont believe it.
These are not the most effecient speakers nor are they amp burners like the scintilla. You will need at least 60 watts of good clean power to run these loud and tube power is preferred with apogee. If your on a budget, but want quasi-audiophile components, I highly recommend these speakers with Jolida intgrated amps. You can have a system, speakers and source and amp, for well under two thousand. I have consistently seen these slant 6's on audiogon and ebay for under a thousand and as low as $700. Many shy away due to the company going under but hey that's how you pick up a bargain.
Apogee users can take advantage of two web sites for info. I believe they will lead you to repair availabilty. WWW.apogeespeakers.totalserve.co.uk/ will give you lots of info on different apogee speakers. It is a new site so be patient it will become more extensive in due season. Also an Apogee users forum is at AudioWorlds StraightWire forum. This forum is good for Apogee nuts to share ideas and so forth.
