Orphean M5 Wow (BD-Design)

Bert... been playing with my new Orphean M5's and wow I like them! The speed and extended top end was exactly what I was looking for. I did have to re-tune the BD-15 base cabinets from the settings I was using with the Oris-150's but that was easy enough with the MiniDSP. The Orphean match to my 300B amplifier is simply outstanding. My only problem is my wife really likes the Oris-150's... who knew.

Best Regards,

Mark

I like you wife! :-)

Perhaps you should get the extension and use the Oris 150 for the compression driver!

Only 1m deep in total (without driver).

Cheers,

Bert

This is new News. Tell me more about the "extension" for the 150. I picture would be great as well. And of course the price. My goal in life is to make the wife vary happy!

This where things started... prototyping!

I made one complete set (still have them laying around) but never found the time or urge to proceed and make them ready for production.

Of course I can make a new pair of extenders (handmade) on demand though

Still in the back of my head to have it installed again but for most people it is too big and I can't have it all fit in my listening/demo room.

Oh, yes that would challenge my room as well. The picture is worth a thousand words. I think I will just rotate out the Orphean and Oris-150's for the next few months to make the wife happy!

Hi Bert... A follow Up after having the Orphean horns online for a couple weeks. I simply could not be more happy! The match of the Orphean to my 300B SET amplifiers is outstanding. And with the MiniDSP crossover and level matching for the BD-15 Compact Base Enclosures the integration of the two is spectacular. Thanks for such an outstanding product.

Best regards,
Mark

I can not explain but Bert's horns always plays coherent with any bass I try. I know some other designs that you can "hear" how sound is not as one... Magic...
