The Apollo is a five-piece loudspeaker system featuring separate full range line source dipole towers, open baffle woofer modules and a Trinnov DSP controller. The separate cabinets allow the full range line source dipole towers to be placed in the perfect location to optimize sound-stage and imaging for the main listening position. The bass
modules can be placed for optimum extended bass in-room response and seamless
integration with the full range towers.
The BFT (Balanced Force Transducer - *Patent
Pending) bass modules are an Open Baffle (OB) design and integrate perfectly
with the full range towers. Using separate bass modules allows flexibility with
their placement to optimize bass integration into the listening room.
Furthermore, the bass modules are designed to be stackable. The one pair of
bass modules that comes with the system will yield a good bass response in an
average size listening room. If the Apollo system is used in a large listening
room then multiple pairs can be stacked or placed around the room to help
minimize room bass issues.
Extraordinary high frequency, midrange and
upper-bass reproduction is attained from our proprietary HVT (High Velocity
Transducer - *Patent Pending) line array. Each of the nine HVT drivers (per
speaker) is comprised of CNC machined side plates made from the appropriate
steel and coated with a durable finish to protect the driver from corrosion.
Custom neodymium magnets weighing just under one pound are used for each
driver. The HVT drivers are designed and built in house by Arion Audio.
What people are saying about Arion loudspeakers:
"I heard your Apollo speakers at the Irvine show in California last June (2019) best sounding system at the show". David, CA
You are really on to something with your Apollo. The speed, openness and live qualities are on one of the best I have heard. Maybe even the best! - Magico owner
Several people have asked:
"Where can The Apollo System be auditioned?" The Apollo System can be auditioned at our showroom located in Charlotte, NC. Please contact us for other locations.
"What type of drivers are the HVT drivers?" The HVT drivers are our interpretation of the late Dr. Oskar Heil's ingenious AMT drivers. Our patent application is not for the AMT driver but what we have to do to use them in a line array.
"Are there any reviews of The Apollo System?"
Art Dudley's comments......"had many strengths—baritone sax on a live jazz recording was to die for…."
"I just have to say that those "Prototype Speakers" mentioned above? They were far and away the most clear, full and real sounding that I heard at the show. The transients were pretty flawless. And I think the "Lamm" gear gave them wings. The room? Tiny and filled with people and still they impressed me. Impressed me about ten times as much as the "Gryphons", sad to say."
“Can The Apollos be
driven by low power amplifiers?” The Apollo
towers are currently set up in our showroom driven by 3.5 watt per channel 2A3
tube amps. We can demonstrate the system using 1.5 watts per channel amplifiers
as well. The Apollo woofers need high power amplifiers of at least 150 watts
"Where is The Apollo System manufactured?" The AMT drivers are designed and manufactured by Arion
Audio and are designed and manufactured in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. The
Apollos are available in custom finished and wood veneers.
