I am not a stats guy, but one would think the wtw configuration would be abandoned.

Thank you Amirm for your review. I must say that while I have no problem in buying an amplifier based only on positive instrumental measurements, I would never do that for a speaker. I believe that a listening session is mandatory for this type of HiFi gear.
Sure, just make sure it's in the room you plan on using it in and in the position you'd prefer.

These look to be high value speakers, Aperion is indeed a great company from a customer support stand point.

All design approaches have pros and cons, it's all about trade offs and the designer achieving their goals. There are many amazingly executed MTMs. It helps to control vertical directivity thus ceiling and floor reflections.

I owned an MTM years ago.
MTM is I think what you mean, and it was quite nice sounding.

I mean just goes to show, some things that one might think matter, are not as important overall.

I think for $1400 a pair this is pretty above average performance, fairly good looking imo as well. The Dispersion from 1-5K visually seems massive in horizontal dispersion. Curious how the dispersion is like when translated to soundstage subjectivity. Id say it measures fairly well for its price and decent value. Would have loved to see subjective review tbh. Seems like Aperion does fairly decent engineering, they also release spin data regularly, curious still what kind of value their super tweeters deliver though granted they do seem to be a fairly objective company, hopefully someone sends one in for testing some day

Agreed! Good $1400 value.

Whereas some theoreticians say MTM can't work, no one told it that. So the fact remains, it does work quite well for what it does.

Do people really come on this website and purchase speakers based on graphs and measurements only without listening?

Yes, some have said they do. Not everybody has the chance to hear speakers before buying.

Yep. One member asked for nearfields and finally bought the KH80DSP without having auditioned them before. He was very happy with them. Science works!

It does, although I'd have EQ ready were I forced to buy that way.

Bit disappointing. Would've been nice if they performed better. What hurts a bit more is that they're local to me. Oh well, hope their bookshelf models are better.
