Amphion Athene Speakers from Finland
Exceptionally good sounding slim tower model from c.2002, these have a small footprint and a big, open sound with lots of detail. Very smooth and engaging presentation. The grilles are sonically transparent so I'd give these a high WAF. Very nice condition overall, not 100% perfect but they look excellent.
Here's a quote from Audio Ideas Guide: "As I measured the Athene, I started to realize that I was encountering something quite special in speakers. From the first Pink Noise Sweep (PNS) to the last Impedance/Phase measurement, I could see evidence of exceptional engineering effort and skill. Now, we measure speakers well away from boundaries in order to approximate anechoic conditions, and this could be said to be a little unfair to some designs like this one, which depend on boundaries for bass reinforcement. Thus the gentle roll off below 200 Hz is a little deceptive. But above that frequency the Athene is +/-1 dB right up to 10 kHz, one of the flattest speakers we’ve ever measured.”
