    I'd just get a ridiculous spec Apogee built for far less than $80k. Polymer front covers and CNC solid aluminium frame with neodymium mags. Pretty sure I'd be a better speaker based on recent experiments

    Hi, do you know if this designer has a track record? Tried to google and came up with my own post

    Confused what do you mean Kedar?

    I spec'd how Interstella should be built in discussion with Jon, who you know. For higher end work, I'd get Graz to build them as I know he can work with powerful magnets etc etc.

    Here is a Graz built neodymium magnet job. Top notch. Much less money than Neolith, much higher efficiency than Neolith, better bass extension than Neolith (mind you so has Interstella). Only disadvantage would be scale compared to Neolith. But it does bass to the same height as the mid/treble unlike Neolith, so it won't sound thin higher up the frequency range as Neolith does. All IMHO of course.

    Graz can build a much bigger Apogee than the one below.

    That post does ML no favours and TBH I am going to stop posting about Apogees here unless asked. I am NOT an Apogee salesman I am just a fan.

    Oh I was just kidding, by designer I actually meant you, and was joking that if one tries to get a reference to Justin's apogees, my own post comes up

    Er no 20 Watts should be sufficient. That's what the powerful magnets do - raise efficiency. The HUGE Definitive was being run off 17 Watts IIRC.

    What that Rowland is being used for I DO NOT KNOW!!! I've met the owner. I think he is mad

    Justin, please don't stop posting about Apogees on this forum. We think of you as a wayward son.

    I think they are visually stunning. Far better than any (with Bernard's permission) Apogee. And they LOOK as though they mean business.

    I like them, a lot. They do, however, look as though you could comfortably traverse the solar system by kneeling down behind the panel.

    The Neolith received many positive comments from the press at the 2015 CES. Here are some comments from Larry Greenhill of Stereophile:

    http://www.stereophile.com/content/m...80%99s-neolith

    In 2001 Greenhill wrote a review of ML's Prodigy's. His review prompted me to check them out and I ultimately purchased a pair 13 years ago. From his comments do you think he may not like the Red Color paint on the demo model? It just "kinda" reads that way.

    We are pretty easygoing on this forum about about diverging from the subject of a thread.

    As much as I liked Justin's former love in Mercedes Blue, I think I prefer the Neoliths in red, as with Joey's Strads.
