How does it sound?

To match the Apollo and Chinera, the Echidna has been designed for maximum ‘speech intelligibility’ and tonal accuracy. To achieve a good match to the new chimera and compliment the audiophile grade crossover components, we have utilised the same bass driver and tweeter as in the Chimera. The result is an exremely compact speaker that will fit almost anywhere. The Echidna simply melds into the home theatre sound field, creating a palpable sense of ‘being there’.
