FrontRunners: Out of the Box

Robert Bastani’s new flagship loudspeaker, the Bastanis Apollo (www.bastanis.com), offers a near-perfect replication of live music with its open-baffle design that quickens transient response and allows notes to disperse naturally. The speaker, priced at $21,600 per pair, employs a driver and tweeter mounted in a figure-eight form on a solid wood baffle with no surrounding cabinetry. Free of box coloration and crossover distortion, the Apollo supports the theory that the only thing offering better sound than a perfectly designed speaker cabinet is no cabinet at all.
