Scott Dalzell of Viva HiFi was demoing some very, brand new, sweet stand-mounted monitors from Daedalus Audio, the $4,600 Pan. Sensitivity 95/96dB, -3dB at 40Hz, and yes, they’re heavy — Scott says they’re maybe 50lbs each. The drivers and crossover come directly from the rest of the line (mostly poly). The front baffle is angled, like it is on the Argos, giving some non-parallel surfaces to help with sound. Lou calls the Pan a “point-source” as opposed to a “line-source”, like his other designs, so using them in near-field is most definitely encouraged — and that front-ported design gives some serious placement flexibility.
