Detailed Info about the Apogee Cepheus 8
Introduced in 1998 the Cepheus range were the 3rd Apogee hybrid speakers range, and the replacement for the Slant series. The Cepheus 8 was the larger model with two 8″ cone woofers, and a 40″ 5 element ribbon, effectively the replacement for the Slant 8. According to Prentice Geddie (Apogee Acoustics Users Group) only 4 pairs were ever sold, which makes this a very rare speaker indeed.
Precious little info can be found about these speakers and pictures seem impossible to find. The above image is most likelly the larger model, the Cepheus 8. If you have more, or better pictures, please email them to me!
Also: I would like to buy a pair of Cepheus 8! Contact me if you have a pair in good condition and are willing to ship to Amsterdam, Netherlands.
