Bottom Line:   
The Orion speakers, designed by Siegfried Linkwitz (http://www.linkwitzlab.com/orion_challenge), are a 3-way, floor-standing, dipole design (open front and back) with an active electronic crossover. The speakers and crossover are sold in various stages of completion from plans, parts list, and circuit boards, to fully assembled units ready to plug and play (priced accordingly). I purchased the plans. Each speaker contains 4 drivers, 1 tweeter, 1 midrange and two bass, and is driven by a minimum of 3 identical amplifiers. They must be located at least 4 feet from the wall behind, and 2 feet from side walls when listening.

In general, these speakers provide extreme realism and accuracy in their presentation of music. The speakers disappear into the sound stage created and involve the listener completely in music. Everything is crystal clear, the sound stage has pinpoint accuracy and depth, the instruments/voices sound life-like, and the bass is tight and awesome.
